I had this at the Firehouse in PB and was inspired to make my own at home! so this is what i put together!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 2 chicken breast fillets
- 4 -6 cups vegetable oil
- 1⁄4 cup hot sauce (I use Frank's Hot Sauce)
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1 celery rib
- 1 carrot
- 1⁄2 cucumber
- lettuce leaf
- ranch dressing
- Combine flour, salt, peppers and paprika in a medium bowl.
- In another small bowl, whisk together egg and milk.
- Cut chicken breast fillets into tiny bits, like 1 or 2 inches.
- Preheat 4-6 cups of vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees.
- Dip chicken bits into egg mixture. Coat well. Next dip chicken bits into flour mixture and make sure they are well coated.
- Drop batches of chicken bits into the fryer for a few minutes -- until chicken is browned.
- Combine hot sauce and margarine in small microwavable bowl. Microwave 20-30 seconds until margarine is melted. You can also do this in a small saucepan on the stove. Be sure to stir to combine both ingredients.
- Meanwhile dice carrot, celery rib, and cucumber into small bits. Set aside or place on plate.
- Place fried chicken bits in container, jar, or bowl with lid. Pour the hot sauce mix over chicken, close the lid and shake. Make sure all the chicken is well covered in sauce.
- Place lettuce leaves on plate. You can pour chicken bits equally on each lettuce leaf or serve the chicken seperately and let the eater serve themselves :). Also add bits of cucumber, carrot, and celery. Top off with drizzles of ranch dressing. ENJOY! :D.
This was to die for! This recipe produces an excellent spicy chicken wrap. I did make these a bit healthier tho by baking the chicken then tossing in the hot sauce. I had some leftovers on baked nacho chips today which was very good as well!
Um.... Buffalo's have wings? this is a European take on a type of recipe that is totally new to me... and YUM! Apologies in advance to any buffalo wing purists but I did need to make a few substitutions, namely: my celery was looking terminally ill so I subbed some baby asparagus stems that I pan fried for 1 minute in 1 teaspoon olive oil, no Frank's hot sauce here in the Netherlands, so I blended some tomatoes and added a very decent splash of tabasco sauce. When putting this together I grated both the carrot and the cuccumber and laid them on the lettuce leaves and after I topped the lot with the rest of the ingredients and taken the photo, I rolled them up into a roll and YUM! Ok maybe I rearranged the recipe from the "norm" somewhat, but I guess that these wings DID take off somewhat for us! We liked them ... please see my rating system: 4 excellent stars for a very tasty recipe that we will have pleasure in making again. Sorry if we didn't make it the most traditional way... maybe it would be fair to say that for this recipe we tried our best and "winged it ". Thanks!
I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. This was a very tasty recipe, indeed. The hublet hates to get anything on his hands, but adores hot wings. He also loved the fact that he did not have to wrestle with the bones found in your standard variety hot wings. The flavor was good with a kick, but not so much that you ran for the fire hose to cool your throat. They were easy to make and served as a fantastic appetizer before dinner last night. The next time I make these, I will make my homemade blue cheese ranch dressing for dipping and will cook the chicken in the oven to avoid the frying oil.
