This is a recipe I learned from a very good friend, and every time I make it there isn't a wing left over. Always a 5-star with friends and family. You can tweak the recipe how you like. Less butter gives you a thicker sauce. I prefer a thinner sauce.

Directions

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

  • Fry chicken wings in small batches in hot oil until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes per batch. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Assure oil reaches 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) between batches.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir hot sauce, ranch dressing mix, and vinegar into the melted butter.

  • Put cooked chicken wings in a large mixing bowl. Ladle sauce over wings and toss to coat.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

I didn't expect to like the ranch but it was really good in here. A little on the salty side but still good. These came out very pretty but very hot. Hotter than without the ranch packet which I would have thought to tame the heat but no. Still good though and one I will make again. Read More
