Kickin' Chicken Wings

Please "Pin" this recipe to your favorite board on Pinterest using the handy dandy button below! Thank you kindly!


I thought I'd bust out a few recipes for y'all as we gear up for Super Bowl Sunday. 
I know wings aren't the most original party food, but hey, people love 'em and they
 are great finger foods (albeit, slightly messy finger food). 

And I'm pretty sure my husband stays married to me because of these wings. 

Well, that may not be entirely true, but at least I know what to make for him when we get into a disagreement and I need 
to make it up him (works every time - uh, almost every time).  
He likes to call them Kickin' Wings.  
    Ingredients:
1 1/2 pounds Chicken Wingettes (thawed)
1 cup Buttermilk
1 1/2 cups Self-Rising Flour
1 tsp. Paprika
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
Oil for Frying (Peanut Oil, preferably)
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup hot sauce (I like Frank's Hot Sauce)
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Cook's Notes: I realize that many folks may like their wings much hotter (or milder). Please adjust seasonings as you see fit since it's a matter of taste.  Sometimes we like a hotter wing so I'll add more hot sauce as well as a little bit of cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Also, if you're making more wings, this recipe is easily doubled or tripled. 


Enjoy!

You just can't go wrong with classic chicken wings. I don't think that the Super Bowl party is the place to try experimental recipes anyway. Wings are almost always a football staple at our house and these look delicious!

Do you know where I'm from, the fried wing is like unheard of? They do the baked wings but personally, I like a good crunch in a wing. Yours looks really nummy. :)

Oh and did you know adding a bit of corn starch to your flour mix will make a crunchier crunch?

Siggy Spice said...

I. LOVE. Hot wings. Thank you.

Jill - I haven't tried adding corn starch. Good idea. I use the technique of letting the wings sit out for a little bit after I've put the coating on until they get pasty looking. I have found over the years that this seems to produce a pretty crispy coating. I'll definitely need to give the corn starch a try! :)

I'm glad you left me a comment....one, because I appreciate your comments....two, for some reason I wasn't able to click on this particular post last night. The hot wings were calling my name and it wouldn't pull up. These look so scrumptious. That sauce looks amazing and the crispy crunch on the outside. Yummy!

Candace said...

Brandie, these look soooo good! I love fried wings but I don't ever fry anything. Is there anyway that I can get an invite to your house for the Super Bowl? :)

Elisabeth said...

What a coincidence! I have just posted my version of it, a few days ago. Love your version of the wings too!...Yummy!

Ang - you can tell I'm a novice blogger still. I went to save my unfinished post last night and I accidentally hit "publish post". Ooops! So I had to go back and save it as a draft until I was done. lol
Candace - come on over, as long as you bring your baked chicken egg rolls!
Elisabeth - your wings look fantastic!

Miz Helen said...
