Why do we call them Buffalo Wings? Something about the origin in Buffalo New York. Nevertheless they are here to stay and they are everywhere! East, West, North or South, we all love our wings, especially at Super Bowl time! I have tweaked several great recipes to come up this totally terrific plate of wings! By the way, do not buy those prepackaged prepared frozen wings, not good, totally not good!! These are easy and you will be so glad you made the REAL thing!
3 lbs of chicken wings
canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper
2 sticks of butter
1 jar of Franks Red Hot (12 oz)
Tabasco "Chipotle" pepper sauce
Ranch Dressing or Blue Cheese Dressing
In a large ziplock bag add the salt, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Shake to blend, add wings. Seal and shake, massage or whatever it takes to make sure all the little wings are totally coated with the seasonings. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large deep skillet to 300-350 degrees, add seasoned wings and fry for 10 minutes turning if needed. Remove and drain in a dish lined with paper towels. Meanwhile melt butter in a large saucepan under low heat. Add the entire jar of Franks and about 20 shakes of the Tabasco (more or less as needed for your taste buds). Drop the cooked wings in the sauce and gently stir to make sure all wings are thoroughly coated. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing and celery sticks!
Enjoy these babies and Enjoy the Super Bowl!
