Smoky, Spicy Buffalo Wings Recipe

Smoky, Spicy Buffalo Wings Recipe
Superbowl Sunday reminds me of an indoor picnic, as there's always lots of food and delicious, traditional appetizer recipes such as hot wings. Whether you have these catered, buy take out or make them yourself - they are one of the biggest hits at a get together, especially game day.

My Smoky, Spicy Buffalo Chicken wings are double-cooked, which are foolproof for tenderness. First, you are going to fry them, which can be done ahead of time and refrigerated if you wish, and then you are going to bake them. Finally, we will create the best tasting sauce to smother these, out-of-this-world, ridiculously tender chicken wings!

Depending on how many people you are cooking for and whether the wings are going to be the star of the show, you may want to increase the quantities of the wings when you purchase them. Count the pieces in the package - 10 whole wings will give you 20 pieces, so if you buy a large pack with 20, you need to double the sauce recipe below.


10 whole chicken wings
Deep frying oil
1/2 cup Franks hot sauce
1 small can chipotle chilies with Adobo sauce
4 tbsp. butter
Black sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
Sliced green onion for garnish (optional)
Ranch and blue cheese dressing (optional)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

1. Start by separating the pointed tips from the wings and discard. Next, separate the drumette from the wingette. TIP: Bend back the drum and wing until it cracks and using a sharp knife separate them between the bones. Rinse the wings and thoroughly pat them dry. Heat the deep fryer to 350 degrees F.

2. Deep fry the wings until they start to change color (but are not brown) and place them on a shallow pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake in the oven until brown and crispy - approximately 20 minutes.

3. In the meantime, puree the can of chipotles with adobo sauce and combine with the Franks hot sauce and the butter in a saucepan. Heats the sauce until the butter has melted and then keep it warm. In a large bowl, combine the wings and the sauce tossing together very well.

Serve on a platter lined with lettuce leaves and sprinkle with green onions and a few black sesame seeds. Serve blue cheese ranch and any extra smoky buffalo sauce you have left in small bowls alongside the platter as dipping sauces, as well as a few cucumber slices for cooling the palate if you wish.
