Restaurant Style Buffalo Wings!

Oh. My. Gosh! These are SO incredibly awesome!

I used regular chicken legs, instead of wings. Again, got the recipe from

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 10 chicken wings

  • oil for deep frying

  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 1/4 cup hot sauce I used Franks-I got 6 of them free last summer with coupons.

  • 1 dash ground black pepper

  • 1 dash garlic powder

  • 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. Make sure you let them sit-this makes the coating stick.
    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. I cooked mine in the oven at 350 for about 1 hour since I used chicken legs. I put some butter in the baking dish-using a paper towel and turned them half way through. I used F

    1. 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.
    I think next time I will cut up some chicken breasts for "boneless wings." They taste just like the expensive restaurant wings! Enjoy!

    Forgot to take a pic of the finished product.....sorry!


    1. I'll have to do it in the oven like you did with the legs sometime. I use the same Frank's for the wings I do once a month (when it's our turn, on the 3rd Wed. of every month, we feed the homeless at the Baptist church) however, I purchase 3 of the large bags of the wings from Costco (already cooked & flavored) and add the Frank's to them, heating in my oven. They always get eaten and I've gotten lots of compliments! ♥

    2. I think I should buy stock in that sauce....So good!
