Another Buffalo Wings Recipe

Recipe by taylortwo

This is a recipe that I got from the "Dean and Deluca Cookbook". My dh and boys INHALE the stuff. I have increased the amount of sauce because we love sauce. This is so good anytime--especially as a midnight snack if there's any left over (which there usually isn't). ;-)

Kicked off a Zaar meal with this appetizer. I used Frank's brand hot sauce and the sauce was great- though I might try adding a bit more vinegar next time and maybe a pinch of cayenne, but that's just a personal taste thing (love that kick). I also had heard that you could just bake the chicken wings in the sauce and they would be lower in fat and just as good that way.... WRONG! I went back and ended up frying them all- much better. Everyone loved 'em- I'll definately be making these again. And for buffalo wings addicts like us- that's high praise. ;-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 lbs chicken wings, tips removed
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • 1 quart vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 12 cup unsalted butter
  • 12 cup louisiana hot sauce (I use Frank's or Crystal brands)
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar


  1. Heat oil to 375°F in a deep fryer or large pot.
  2. Please be careful.
  3. Cut wings into 2 separate pieces at the joint.
  4. Season them well with the salt and pepper.
  5. Fry the wings in several batches (too much at one time will drastically drop the temperature of the oil) until they are crisp and golden brown, about 10-13 minutes per batch.
  6. Remove wings from oil and let drain on paper towel.
  7. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  8. Add the hot sauce and vinegar.
  9. Stir to blend and remove from heat and pour over cooked wings.
  10. This is great with the usual celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.
