Sure... it's Just for the Wings, Right?

I've been feeling way too sick to cook anything lately, so a quick quip comes your way about the chicken wings from a well known establishment!

Okay, I don't get the obsession with Hooters. What's so great about being served so-so food by some barely clothed women? My dad says it's the wings. Suuuurrrreeee. Okay all the women reading this, roll your eyes with me. Then take a look at this recipe... and all his excuses will be blown to bits.

Excuseless Wings
Serves 4
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup corn flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. black pepper
20 chicken wing segments
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup Frank's Hot Sauce
  1. In a shallow dish, combine flours, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and peppers.
  2. Coat chicken entirely in the flour mixture; refrigerate coated wings for 1 hour; coat chicken again with remaining flour mixture.
  3. Melt butter and hot sauce together, keep warm.
  4. In a 2-quart saucepan, heat corn or peanut oil to 375F.
  5. Deep-fry chicken, 8 - 10 pieces at a time for 13 minutes, turning once or twice.
  6. Drain chicken on a wire cooling rack for 30 seconds, then immediately toss fried chicken in buffalo sauce mixture and remove with a slotted spoon.
  7. Repeat with remaining chicken.
