Yummmm…… Wings! The perfect football snack. This is the only wing recipe I make because it is delish! I have also brought them to parties and they are always a huge hit. I live in NJ where good food is endless and easily accessible and my boyfriend prefers these wings over any restaurant ( that we have tried so far). These will make you a star!
Ok… So here is what you need:
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp papricka
1 Tbsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp sea or kosher salt
1/2 Tbsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 Tbsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
16 wings (called wingettes at my grocery store)
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot
2-3 Tbsp butter
Blue cheese or ranch to dip
Celery on side if you want
Vegetable oil for frying
Here is how you do it:
First wash your chicken and pat dry
In a large mixing bowl, combine you flour, papricka, cayenne and salt, blend well.
Next, coat chicken with flour mix and let sit in fridge for one hour. You don’t have to let it sit but it helps the flour stick.
When you are ready to cook, heat oil up in pan. I use a large sauce pan to fry. To test if oil is ready, throw in some flour to see if it bubbles. If it does, toss half of your chicken (8 pieces) and usually fry for about 12-15 minutes. You want the skin brown, I usually flip a few times too.
At this time you can begin your sauce. In a small pot, add franks red hot, butter, garlic and pepper.
Let it melt, stirring a lot and keep on low heat.
Take your chicken out of frying pan, add the rest of your chicken to oil to cook.
To keep dishes at a minimum, I quickly wash my large mixing bowl of the flour to toss chicken and sauce in. Add half of the sauce to your bowl and toss the wings until well coated. Dump on a plate and serve with side of blue cheese and paper towels. Finish up the the next batch and you’re done!
Now… You may have a deep fryer or capabilities to fry more than eight wings, if so make it all at once. I don’t have the equipment for that so I do it in batches.
