Hooters-Style Buffalo Wings

Hooters-style Buffalo Wings

Servings: 2- 4 servings.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ --------------------------------
Vegetable oil for frying
1/4 cup butter
2/4 cup Louisiana hot sauce or other 1 dash ground pepper 1 dash garlic powder
3/2 cup flour
4/4 teaspoon paprika
5/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6/4 teaspoon salt 10 chicken pieces Bleu cheese salad dressing & celery sticks

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. You want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely -- an
inch or so deep at least. Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small
saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well blended.
Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt in a small bowl. If the wings are frozen, be
sure to defrost and dry them. Put the wings into a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over
them, coating each wing evenly. Put the wings in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 minutes. (This will
help the breading to stick to the wings when fried.)

Put all the wings into the hot oil and fry them for 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the
wings begin to turn dark brown. Remove the wings from the oil to a paper towel to drain. But don't
let them sit too long, because you want to serve the wings hot. Quickly put the wings into a large
bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir, coating all the wings evenly. You could also use a large plastic
container with a lid for this. Put all the wings inside the container, add the sauce, put on the
lid, and then shake. Serve with Bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side.
