Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings with Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Unfortunately, although we made a bunch of dishes for our Christmas dinner that we hosted, we didn't take any pictures.  :(  It was crazy in the kitchen trying to get everything cooked and ready to eat at the same time.  We were able to get a pic of these wings that we served as part of our appetizers.  I have to say that I love wings, but rarely make them.  We even have a nifty little fryer called a "Wing-It," which is specifically made to cook wings (although we use it to fry other things too!).  The only down-side to the Wing-It is that it's a little small and I was frying up these wings in batches of 5 or so.  So, it took a bit of time to cook up the three dozen I had bought and prepared.  I thought they were tasty and the blue cheese dressing was creamy and helped cool the "heat" of the wings. Since the recipe calls for 10 wings, I tripled everything.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings - by Kelly


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 chicken wings
  • oil for deep frying
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1 dash ground black pepper
  • 1 dash garlic powder

  • Directions
    1. In a small bowl mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. Place chicken wings in a large nonporous glass dish or bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over them until they are evenly coated. Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes.

    2. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep. Combine the butter, hot sauce, pepper and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat and reserve for serving.

    3. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add hot sauce mixture and stir together. Serve.
