- 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
- 1 dash ground black pepper
- 1 dash garlic powder
- 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.
- 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.
- Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 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.
A few modifications I make to this recipe.
1) Chop up boneless breasts into wing sized pieces as bones are just a waste of flavor space!
2) In addition to the existing wing sauce recipe I add a 1/4 a cup of brown sugar, and about a tablespoon (total) worth of paprika, chili powder and cayenne pepper for extra spice, and a few spashes of jalapeno tabasco.
3) I usually double the recipe as a half a lb. of wings just doesn't do it for me AND my wife
YUM! I'm gettin hungry just thinkin about it.
