Restaurant Style Hot Wings

Want your guests to rave about your party spread more than the big game? These hot wings will do the trick! We serve these hot wings at every Super Bowl Party, and they are a HUGE hit. My father-in-law swears these taste just like wings you get at the bar, and I am hounded for the recipe each time I serve them. They are so simple to make, and I'm sure that once you serve them, they will be a requested staple at every shindig you host thereafter. I'm not a huge fan of eating leftovers cold, but these are fantastic the next day. I also find that even with the cayenne pepper and paprika added to the chicken, my kids will eat these if I don't put sauce on theirs.

hot wings


  • oil for deep frying                    
  • 1/2 cup butter *real butter, not a spread*
  • 1/2 cup Franks hot sauce (you can use another brand, but I think Franks is what makes these wings so good) 

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 20 chicken wings

  • Directions:
    1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely. Combine the butter, hot sauce, pepper and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat and reserve for serving.
    2. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. Place chicken wings in a large ziptop bag. Pour flour mixture over the wings, seal bag, and shake until all the pieces are coated with the mixture. Refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes.
    3. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until wings begin to turn golden brown. Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add hot sauce mixture and stir together. Serve.
