"You can adjust the hot sauce and cayenne according to you heat level and double the amounts. Plan ahead there is a 2 hour chilling time for the floured wings. --- What I do when I am serving these at my parties is fry the wings in advance, when ready to serve I heat them on a baking sheet in the oven on low heat until hot then coat in the sauce"

Step 1

Using paper towels pat the wings dry to remove any excess moisture. In a small bowl mix together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper seasoned salt. Place chicken wings in a large glass dish or bowl (do not use plastic) and sprinkle flour mixture over them until they are evenly coated. Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours

Step 2

For the sauce; in a small saucepan combine the butter, hot sauce, black pepper and garlic powder; over low heat stir until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat and reserve for serving.

Step 3

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (the oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely).

Step 4

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 immediately.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I doubled the recipe with the full amount of hot sauce but cut back to 1/4 tsp. of cayenne so they wouldn't be too hot for the kids. The adults LOVED them, and some of the kids ate them too! Delicious and enjoyed with Blue Cheese dressing to dip!

I followed instructions as listed except for cooking these in my actifry after breading them, using 1 tablespoon of the oil, and then coating them with the sauce. DIVINE, thanks for sharing this great recipe. Made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag Game.
