Original recipe yields 10 chicken wings

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  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.

Oh yeah! I love these and they're really easy to make at home. I decided to bake them instead of fry them so they didn't taste just like Hooters but they were still great and much better for you. I followed the instructions exact except I baked on a rack set over a jelly roll pan at 350 for 45 minutes. Then I turned the oven to 375 and sprayed the wings with Pam and let them bake 5 more minutes so they got crispy. Excellent and you'll never miss the deep fried taste!

This is a great way to fix those restaurant style wings. I've been making them like this for years. The secret I picked up from buying the expensive Hooter's Brand wing breading and wing sauce in the grocery is this; Don't skip the step to refrigerate the wings for 60-90 minutes. After this rest the spiced flour on the wings becomes sticky. Now they are ready to fry. This IS the secret to great breaded wings like this! Spices in the flour can be varied to taste. Also to simplify I use about 2/3 butter to 1/3 Frank's Hot Sauce for sauce. Melted in the microwave it tastes like a million bucks! The expensive Hooter's wing sauce also taught me that for the hotter sauce use a greater proportion of sauce to butter. The mild Hooter's sauce uses a larger proportion of butter to sauce.

Just when I thought it could'nt get any better. I cooked these last night and followed directions as stated, with one exception I only kept them in the fridge for maybe 40mins before frying, I truly believe this step is what makes them so crispy and the seasoning was right on spot. Next time I will leave in the fridge for 90mins as stated. The sauce was great!!!. I have cooked the Buffalo Chicken Wings I from this site in the past, and not to take away from that recipe it is good. This recipe is the one I will use from now on for my hot wings. UPDATE!!! THIS IS ANOTHER RECIPE THAT I CAN NOT STOP MAKING, I NOW ALSO ADD ONION POWDER, GARLIC POWDER AND SEASON SALT TO MY FLOUR MIXTURE, I NEVER SKIP THE FRIDGE STEP, IF YOU DO, JUST TRY IT THE RECIPE WAY I'M SURE YOU WILL SEE THE DIFFERENCE, I NEVER BUY HOT WINGS OUT ANY MORE!!!!!. THIS IS AN UPDATE ON MY UPDATE!!! I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO COOK TONIGHT AND WHILE READING REVIEWS THIS CAME UP AGAIN, JUST SEEING THIS RECIPE MAKE ME CRAVE IT MORE, OH WELL GUESS IT'S HOT WINGS AGAIN TONIGHT, THIS IS TRULY HOW GOOD THIS RECIPE IS.
