The Internet is full of recipes that attempt to duplicate restaurant fare. It's possible to find at least three different ways to make buffalo wings at home that should turn out like those served at Hooter's. You're on your own if you want to duplicating anything else about Hooter's, including those orange shorts.
Things You'll Need
- 10 chicken wings cut into thirds (no wing tips)
- Vegetable oil (for frying)
- 1/4 cup of Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce
- 4 tbsp. butter
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- Dash of ground pepper
- Dash of garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp.cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 gallon plastic bag
- Deep fryer
- Baking pan
Pour 2 inches of oil into a deep fryer and heat it to 375 degrees. Melt the butter in a saucepan set on low heat. Stir in the hot sauce, black pepper and garlic powder.
Mix the flour, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper in a plastic bag.
Rinse the chicken wings under cold water and drain any excess water. Drop the wings into the bag of spices a few at a time. Shake the bag to coat the wings. Place them on a tray or wax paper and refrigerate the wings for at least an hour to set the coating.
Fry no more than 10 pieces at once for 13 to 15 minutes. Drain the wings on a paper plate or a paper bag.
Put the wings in a large oven proof bowl or baking pan. Pour the sauce over the wings and shake the bowl to distribute the sauce.
Tips & Warnings
