If you are a lover spicy food and buffalo wings then you might want to give this recipe a try, you may of coarse double or triple this recipe but because of the spices and cayenne you will need to make each recipe in a separate bowl (10 wings in each bowl) the amount of cayenne may be adjusted to suit heat level, plan ahead the coated wings *must* be refrigerated 2 hours before frying, this is important so do not skip ;-) Serve the wings with a blue cheese dip see Kittencal's Blue Cheese Dressing or use your own favorite recipe

Directions

  1. For the sauce; in a small saucepan combine the butter, hot sauce, black pepper, salt and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally; remove from heat and set aside to be coated with the wings later.
  3. For the wings; in a bowl combine flour, paprika, cayenne (you may adjust cayenne to suit heat level) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder and seasoned salt.
  4. Place the wings in a shallow dish and sprinkle the flour mixture over; mix using hands to coat evenly and completely (I use disposable rubber gloves for this!).
  5. Cover the dish and refrigerate for 2 hours (THIS IS IMPORTANT, the wings must be refrigerated for that amount of time!).
  6. Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (the oil should be just enough to cover the wings completely, about 1-1/2-inches or more).
  7. Fry the flour-coated wings in hot oil for about 10-15 minutes or until parts of the wings begin to turn brown.
  8. Remove from heat then place wings in a serving bowl; add in prepared hot sauce mixture and turn the wings to coat with the sauce.
  9. You may serve the wings as is or place on a baking sheet and bake in a 250 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  10. Serve with a blue cheese dip.
