Questions & Replies

  1. Plan to make large batch soon, going with this recipe bc good reviews. Was thinking about making some with sweet-heat but unsure about what type sweetener to use and when: Brown sugar in dry coating? Honey/ Karo/ molasses melted in with butter sauce mixture? Also thinking about in addition to ranch & bleu cheese dipping sauces having a honey-Dijon sauce, and fresh cucumber spears along with traditional celery. Yah or nah?
  2. When cooking these Hooters wings, do I start with frozen wings or thaw them first? Thank you!


  1. These wings were fantastic ! My husband never had buffalo wings before so the other night I made these...needless to say I will have to double the recipe the next time. The only change I made was that I baked them instead of frying. I've always done my wings this way...you can't tell the difference. Lightly spray Pam on a jellyroll pan, line up the wings and refrigerate...use the same pan to bake them at 400 degrees for 35-40 min. turning once after 20 min. or so.
  2. Great wing recipe !! I've been asked over and over for it. I use boneless chicken and cut them in small portions to fry.
  3. These were just fantastic for our Super Bowl party. I left the wings in the flour batter (and just put the bag and all in the fridge) Put all the cooked wings in a casserole dish, poured the sauce over them and baked them slowly. OMG!!! They were so good. I will have to make them for my boss who goes to Hooters once a week for wings... THESE ARE BETTER!!!!!
  4. i fixed these wings last night and they were great the only change i made was instead of coating them in the hot sauce mixture i dropped them in the pan i was simmering the mixture in and left them there while fryng the rest of the wings then put those in for a few min.
  5. Sorry, but I didn't really like these. I think it may be all the butter or something. I've never tasted them at Hooter's as we don't have it here so couldn't say if they were similar or not.


  1. I used Sweet Baby Rays Buffalo wing sauce. Not too spicy. I used it with the butter and garlic powder. Try it
