Pub Style Hot Wings

Wings baby! Authentic pub style wings. The ones you get at the bar when you just feel like a beer and some football. They are perfectly crispy with just the right amount of heat. Fried to perfection then dunked, rolled, soaked in hot sauce. I've baked them, coated them, marinated them but they just don't top these. In light of Sundays big game, (and honestly I don't ever watch football) which I feel the need to watch because I live in N.Y. I give you these :) 


2 pounds Chicken Wingetts, meaning they are already cut up for you; way easier!

1 Cup Flour for coating

1 tablespoon Paprika

Canola Oil or Peanut Oil

2 sticks Butter

1 bottle Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce (12 Oz Bottle)

Preparation Instructions

Preheat a deep fryer to 375 degrees F. In a shallow baking dish add flour and paprika. Place each wing in flour to coat then shake off excess flour very very well. I bang them on a cutting board after shaking. You don't want a coating on the cooked chicken just a little extra crisp. Depending on the size of your deep fryer add enough wings to basket, be sure not to over crowd it. Cook about 20 minutes. 

While the chicken is cooking melt 2 sticks of butter (1cup) in a medium-sized saucepan. To it add one 12-ounce bottle of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. 

When the chicken has cooked for about 20 minutes, take them out with a pair of tongs and place then on a paper towel to drain. In small batches begin placing the cooked wings into the sauce to coat. Swirl them around good to ensure they are coated. Place them on a platter. Repeat until all of the chicken is coated with sauce and ready to eat. Serve with celery, blue cheese or ranch dressing.
