A nice spicy kick, and a super crunchy coating…

buffalo wings

I loved these from the first time I tried them – fried chicken with crispy skin, and a spicy coating to serve. What’s not to love!?


  • ½ kg (1.1 lb) of chicken wings
  • 50 gr. (½ cup / 2 oz.) of flour
  • 1 tsp of coarse salt
  • ½ tsp of paprika
  • ½ tsp of cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp of black pepper
  • Oil, for frying


  • 60ml (1/4 cup) of your favourite hot sauce
  • 15g (1/2 oz.) of butter
  • 1/4 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of onion powder


  1. Cut the chicken wings, at the joints, into 3 separate pieces. Discard the wing tip, and keep the other two sections.KFCchicken
  2. Next mix the flour, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, and pepper.
  3. Evenly coat the pieces of chicken.KFCchicken
  4. Then, place in the refrigerator for one hour. (This ensures the flour stays on!)
  5. Heat oil to 180C / 360F. Either use enough oil to deep fry (enough oil to at least cover the wing pieces, but no more than a 1/3 of pan full) or shallow fry (using oil about half the depth of the chicken pieces – turn while cooking).
  6. Fry the wings for 10-12 minutes.
  7. To make the sauce, melt the butter in the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients. Use half the sauce to coat the wings, and the rest to serve.
