Kickin' Buffalo Chicken Wings

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 salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
oil for frying (peanut oil, preferably)
1/2 cup real butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup hot sauce (I like Frank's Hot Sauce)
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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. :)

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

  4. 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! :)

  12. 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!
