I personally like my Hot Wings deep fried and extra crispy. I came up with this recipe after getting tired of the same ol' messy wings with goopy skin. Substitute with your favorite wing sauce, but I always preferred the tangy taste and slight kick of Crystal Hot Sauce. I usually mix Crystal Hot Sauce with a bit of Crystal Extra Hot or Tabasco.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 lbs chicken wings, portions (Thawed)
  • 1 (6 ounce) bottle Crystal hot sauce or 1 (6 ounce) bottlecrystal extra hot sauce
  • 12 lb flour
  • 4 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning (or Cajun Seasoning)
  • 1 tablespoon ground red pepper (optional)
  • 2 gallons ziploc bags
  • 2 large eggs
  • cooking oil


  1. Take thawed chicken wing portions and place in ziplock bag.
  2. Pour hot sauce on wings for desired flavor and heat.
  3. Shake to coat chicken entirely.
  4. Marinate for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  5. Beat eggs in a medium sized bowl.
  6. Pour flour into the spare ziplock bag.
  7. Mix Old Bay seasoning thoroughly with flour.
  8. Add cayenne pepper (red pepper) for extra heat.
  9. Coat wings with beaten egg and then place in the bag with flour.
  10. Shake until wings are completely coated with flour.
  11. Place wings back in the refrigerator for approximately.
  12. 15 minutes so the flour will stick to the chicken.
  13. Preheat deep fryer to 370°F, or heat oil in a deep bottomed frying pan.
  14. Deep fry wings until a golden brown.

These were great! I used extra hot sauce and let them marinate overnight. I also cut back on the red pepper by 1/2 TBSP, as my son was going to be eating some. Next time, I'll use the full strength for maximum heat, and only 1 & 1/2 cups flour. Thanks for the posting!

Ysman, these wings are Superb! I used Tyson's frozen wings (5 lb.) and used a whole 12 oz. bottle of Frank's Hot Sauce. This was my first time making hot wings and I am very pleased with the way they turned out. Set me on fire! Thank you so much. I can't wait to try more of your recipes.
