Another Buffalo Wings Recipe

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

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). ;-)

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.

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. ;-)

Awesome wings! I too, used Frank's sauce, which was good. Great garlic flavor, and the vinegar was right on. I cooked the wings in the sauce, let them simmer for about 15 minutes on low. If you like them really spicy, you'll need to kick them up a bit, as is, the flavor is fantastic, but they don't pack a lot of heat. These are going to be a regular feature at our house! Thanks tt! :)

Made these this weekend, who knew they would be devoured so quickly? I will have to double the recipe next time. It had just the right amt of vinegar. Instead of pouring the mixture over the wings, I put the wings into the saucepan and let the sauce cook into them a bit then placed them on a plate to serve. I loved the crispiness most of all. I wish I never found these, they will be the downfall of my New Year's resolution LOL
