Naked Hot Wings

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Medium

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 12 minutes

Servings: 8



  • 2 lbs chicken wings, cut at the joint to yield a wingette and drumette from each wing
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 stick butter
  • 5 oz Paula Deen Hot Sauce


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

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.
