As a native of Buffalo, NY, I know my chicken wings. They are never, ever called Buffalo wings! That is just the sauce that is applied. With that said, chicken wings can be fried, baked, or grilled and be absolutely delicious. I have had many people tell me they want a recipe for authentic chicken wings and this one delivers! They are crispy, saucy, and pack just enough heat to make you crave them over and over. They are easy to make and be reheated just as easily if you want to make them ahead for a party. Give them a try! You’ll love them!
Authentic Chicken Wings
- 1 1/2 cups AP flour
- 3 tbsp Corn starch
- 1 tsp (each) S & P
- 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp Onion powder
- 1/4 cup Franks Wing Sauce (mild) or Hot sauce (medium to hot)
- 6 tbsp Unsalted butter
- 24 Chicken wings (drumettes preferred)
- 1 large container of Vegetable oil (frying oil)
- Blue cheese dressing (dipping sauce)
- Carrot and Celery sticks
** Deep fryer is recommended**
First, turn your deep fryer to 375° and let it heat up completely before adding the wings. Next, wash and completely dry off the chicken wings. Take 6-7 wings and put them in a zip lock bag with the coating mix. Completely coat the wings, shake the wing off to remove the excess flour and place in the deep fry basket.
Deep fry the chicken wings for 8-10 minutes or until the green light turns on. This indicator let you know they are done. Remove the chicken wings and place on a sheet pan and place in a warm oven. The excess grease will evaporate. Continue cooking the remaining chicken wings.
Once the wings are all fried, place them in the oven and begin the sauce. The sauce will only take about 3 minutes to make. In a sauce pan, heat the butter and hot sauce to a low boil. Whisk the sauce until it is combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
Pull the chicken wings from the oven and place them in a container that you can toss the sauce and wings together. A tupperware container works great. Add the sauce and close the container. Shake to coat all of the wings. Plate the wings. Serve with blue cheese dressing (not ranch), celery, and carrots. Enjoy!
