Total time Yield
45 minutes Serves 4

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Frank’s RedHot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 pound chicken wings, split
  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • Vegetable oil (or other high flashpoint oil), for frying

Directions

  • 1. Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Melt the butter and stir in the garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the garlic is lightly browned.
  •  
  • 2. Stir in the hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer the sauce for about 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Set aside.
  •  
  • 3. Rinse the chicken wings and pat them dry. Generously season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Dredge the wings in flour, shaking off any excess flour, and set aside.
  •  
  • 4. In a large saucepan or deep fryer, heat the oil to about 375 degrees. Fry the chicken wings in small batches until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Shake off any excess oil and place on paper towels to drain. Continue frying the chicken in batches until all of the wings are cooked.
  •  
  • 5. Toss the chicken wings with the buffalo sauce and serve warm.
