Buffalo Wings Recipe

buffalo chicken wings in basket with celery, ranch, and beer

This buffalo wings recipe is extremely tasty as we will first brine the wings, then rub them in spices and deep fry them. The final result will be a tender inside, crunchy outside exquisite wing.

I serve these with my homemade blue cheese dressing but you can certainly use store bought.

Here is what you are going to need for this terrific buffalo wings recipe:

Serves eight
2 pounds chicken wings
1 – 12 oz. bottle beer
1 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS coarse salt
½ TBS paprika
½ TBS garlic powder
½ TBS onion powder
½ tsp. black pepper
4 TBS butter
¼ cup red hot sauce
Oil for frying

• Cut the end tips of the wings and save them for chicken stock. Separate the drumette from the flat part of the wing. Rinse and place in a bowl.
• In a separate bowl, whisk together the beer, salt and brown sugar. Pour over the wings and brine for about 30 minutes.
• Mix the paprika, garlic power, onion powder and black pepper.
• Drain the wings and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels.
• Add the paprika mix and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
• Melt the butter in a small pan. Add the hot sauce. Bring to a simmer, turn off heat and set aside.
• Heat a large skillet with about 3 inches of oil. Heat until 375 degrees. Add the chicken drumettes and fry until browned and cooked through – about 13 minutes. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Fry the rest of the chicken.
• Heat the butter sauce. Place the wings into a bowl. Add the sauce and toss to coat well.
• Serve immediately with celery and blue cheese dressing. Enjoy!

  • These were great. Made them once for my family, and then ended up making for a bridal shower I was planning for my daughters best friend. They were a hit. Only thing I added to the sauce to roll them in was I added Thai Sweet Chili sauce to the hot sauce & butter. Addictive….
