Ingredients

  • 25 whole chicken wings
  • Oil, for frying
  • 1 Cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 Cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 3/4 Teaspoons cayenne
  • 3/4 Teaspoons celery salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • Celery ribs and ranch salad dressing, for serving

Directions

Cut the chicken wings into 3 sections and discard the wing tip sections. In an electric skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees. Fry the wings in oil, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear. Drain on paper towels.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the hot sauce and spices. Place the chicken in a large bowl and add the sauce to toss to coat. Remove to a serving plate with a slotted spoon. Serve with celery and ranch dressing if desired. 

Buffalo Wing Shopping Tip

When working with chicken, buy a separate cutting board, preferably a dishwasher-safe, plastic one, to avoid spreading bacteria onto raw produce.

Buffalo Wing Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Buffalo Wing Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
