  • 1 lb chicken wings, cut at the joint to yield a wingette and drumette from each wing
  • oil, for frying
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup Paula Deen Hot Sauce


In a small saucepan over a low heat, heat butter and hot sauce just until butter melts; keep warm on stove top.


Salt and Pepper the chicken. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or dutch oven to 375º. Deep-fry chicken, 8-10 pieces at a time for 10-12 minutes, turning once or twice.


Drain chicken on a wire cooling rack for 30 seconds. Transfer the warm buffalo sauce to a very large mixing bowl. Toss the fried chicken in the buffalo sauce and remove with a slotted spoon.


Repeat with remaining chicken.


Paula's note: This sauce yields a medium hot sauce. Adjust the ratio of the hot sauce to butter for a milder or hotter sauce.

We use a cooling

We use a cooling rack on a sheet pan to bake ours. 45 minutes on each side and they come out nice and crispy and less greasy. I haven't tried you sauce yet but we you Red hot sauce butter and a little cider vinegar to make our sauce. We just salt and pepper our wings, bake and then toss in the sauce and serve right away so they stay crispy.
