"Where I'm from, they're just called 'Wings.' I've made this recipe for as long as I can remember - hopping from my hometown of Buffalo, NY, to Raleigh, NC, now to Seattle, WA. This wing recipe has been sought after by many that have tasted them, and I've never given up the recipe or prep method...until now."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or kettle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Gently add the wings, one at a time, to the hot oil. Stir gently to assure the wings do not stick together. Fry the chicken wings in the preheated oil until cooked through and the are floating gently atop the oil, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the wing should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).
  3. Stir the melted butter, hot pepper sauce, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a large mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. Add the cooked wings to the sauce and turn to coat; transfer to a serving platter.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • For a "medium hot" wing, add 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes to the wing sauce.
  • For a truly "hot" wing, add 2 tablespoon white vinegar, 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoon of your favorite super-hot hot sauce to the wing sauce. My favorites are Scorned Woman(R), Black Rhino(R), and Vicious Viper(R).

This is my husband's wing recipe, too. Peanut oil is really the only way to go. Crispier wings and the flavor just can't be beat. I don't like wings usually but these are MONEY. Try them for yourself and you'll see.

I am born and raised in Buffalo, NY and this is not the best recipe for wings. REAL wings use only equal parts of Frank's Hot Sauce (no substitites allowed) and butter for mild sauce. That's it - just Franks and butter. To make them hotter, increase the amount of Franks. This is how the best pizzarias make them in Buffalo, and for the record, Anchor Bar has good wings but not the BEST wings in Buffalo - there are plenty of neighborhood pizzarias and bars that make way better wings!! And you coat the wings by swirling them around in a metal mixing bowl with plenty of sauce after they have been fried - and in Buffalo, they are NEVER NEVER served with ranch dressing - REAL Buffalo wings are served with Blue cheese dressing and celery!!!!

Oh man! These were really good. I pan fried them in about 1/4 inch of peanut oil for 10 minutes per side. Much better than using an entire gallon of peanut oil and this got the wings good and crispy. For the sauce, I added 1 tsp of red pepper flakes, which for me left the wings fairly spicy. This isn't a traditional Buffalo Wing sauce, but is still really good. I liked the garlic flavor in addition to the heat from the red pepper flakes, Frank's RedHot and black pepper. I will definitely make these again.
