Buffalo Chicken Wings

I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe here yet! This is our favorite wing recipe - the wings come out with crunchy outsides and juicy insides. The kids always get really excited when these are cooking! If you're not a fan of spicy buffalo sauce, make the wings and toss in whatever you like. My kids eat both them in both buffalo and barbecue sauces.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 lbs chicken wings
oil for deep frying
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Frank's hot sauce
dash ground black pepper
dash garlic powder

In a small bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne, and salt. Place chicken wings in a large glass dish or bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over them. Toss until chicken is completely coated. Cover and refrigerate for 60-90 minutes.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Fry coated wings for 10-15 minutes, or until parts of the wings start to turn brown. Remove and place wings in a large covered bowl. Fry in batches to not overcrowd the oil.

While wings are frying, combine the butter, hot sauce, black pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended.

Pour hot sauce over the wings and toss in bowl (with lid on). Enjoy!
