Super easy delicious chicken wings. My wife doesn't like the hot sauce, so she heats BBQ sauce in the microwave and uses that.

  • Mix flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder together in a 1-gallon resealable bag; add chicken wings. Seal bag and shake to evenly coat chicken.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Remove chicken from bag and shake off any excess coating; fry in the preheated oil until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 7 minutes. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Combine hot sauce and butter in saucepan over medium heat; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Coat cooked chicken wings with sauce.

I didn't find a tablespoon of butter to be nearly enough for our liking. I ended up adding 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup). Recipe says it serves 6 but this was just about the right amount for hubby and I so keep that in mind. These were good but who doesn't love a classic wing? I recommend making as is to start off and only add more butter to the sauce if you see fit. I'm already looking forward to making these again! Read More

My family loved it! I did use more butter 4 tablespoons. I also made two batches and substituted country sweet for tangy wings and it worked perfectly. Read More

This really is easy and tasty. I didn't have wings so I used 4 chicken legs for two of us and it was still quite good. It was way more flour than I needed for 4 legs but I've put the rest in the freezer for next time. I used a wok to cook in and didn't measure how much canola oil I used - probably 3 cups maybe 4. Since the legs were obviously bigger than wings I cooked them for 10-12 minutes turning them a couple times. The chicken was juicy and flavorful with a nice crunchy coat. The Texas Pete wing sauce with butter (which I heated in the microwave) gave a nice kick but not enough to hurt. Good recipe! Read More

My wings turned out delicious! The flour dredge was easy and turned out crispy! However my next batch I will use a different hot sauce. The one I used was too vinegary! Other than that I ate them all! Read More
