Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

October 13, 2010 at 3:06 pm (Appetizers, Chicken)

I made these for Super Bowl Sunday once.  They went over well, but took a little more time and trouble to make than I wanted.  (What, they don’t make themselves??)  Either way, I liked them.

Found on with Kelly as the contributor.


  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup hot sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)
  • 4 dashes ground black pepper
  • 4 dashes garlic powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 40 chicken wings


  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).  The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep.  Combine the butter, hot sauce, pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended.  Remove from heat and reserve for serving.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt.  Place chicken wings in a large nonporous glass dish or bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over them until they are evenly coated.  Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes.
  3. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings  begin to turn  brown.  Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add hot sauce mixture and stir together.  Serve

Prep Time:  15 mins.       Cook Time:  15 mins.       Ready in:  2 hours.       Yields:  20 (small) servings
