Buffalo Wing Recipes?

17 posts in this topic

So I absolutly love Buffalo wings, specifically boneless ones (don't want to waste time with bones). I have been experimenting making them on my own, but just wondering if anyone else has some good recipes. Batter? Sauce?

My buddy makes some pretty killer wings and they are super simple. He just gets the little wings and drummies (bone in) and throws em in the oven or deep fryer. When they are done, just tosses em with Franks Red Hot. They are pretty darn good, though like you I would love to hear some aditional recipes to get some ideas.

If you want to do boneless I would think you could pick up some chicken breast tenderloins or some breast strips and batter them up and throw em in the fryer. Then toss in sauce. Tenderlions would be good for making a sandwich and strips better for the football parties.

roll the wings in seasoned flour with a bit of baking powder. after you roll the wings in the flour, let them sit in the fridge till the flour coating get gummy, then fry at 375. I always make these for parties, and toss them in buffalo sauce,BBQ, or a sweetend chile sauce that you can get in the ethnic isle. I make the buffalo by mixing franks hot sauce with butter

soak em over nite in Texas Style hot wing sauce. Pat em dry without rubbing your eyes, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon pepper, put em a foil pan and bake at 325 for 45 minutes, drain off juices, paint em with your favorite BBQ sauce doctored up with some more wing sauce for 45 more minutes. Check em and add more sauce during the last 45 minutes if needed. Once there are carmelized take em out, be a man and gnaw around the bones.

Zeek,

How long you frying those bad boys? The rest of your instructions seem pretty simple. I have tried the fry and dunk in Franks and that is OK but I do like the chewy coating that you get at the bars and restaurants and I think the seasoned flour and the fridge would do the trick for that. It probably also gives the hot sauce and butter something to soak into and hold onto. I may have to fire up the deep fryer this weekend!

By far the best boneless wings in the state belong to the Green Mill. Very light coating with killer sauce selection. Buy yourself the chicken tenders in by the chicken breasts. Roll in salt and pepper seasoned flour. Fry them up they won't take long so try not to over cook them. About 375 should be good on the fryer. Then mix up your favorite hot sauce half and half with melted butter. Get a nice big steel bowl put your sauce in and then your wings and toss them up while still hot.

hey windy, I will usually cut into one to see if there is any blood by the bone. usually 8-10 mins. Also I forgot to mention that I like to get the whole wing and drummy, and cut them myself.

Lots of good ideas, thanks guys!

Here's what I do,

Cut chicken breasts or tenderloins into "wing" size peices or strips. I have been experiementing with store bought breadings vs seasoned flour and the best so far has been 1 part Uncle Bucks Hot and Spicy breading/1 part flour. The flour frys a bit crispier than the store bought breadings. Then it's into the deep fryer or pan fried in enough oil to float the chicken. Usually 3-4 mins will be enough. While frying more batches I keep the wings in the oven at about 200 just to keep warm.

For sauce I start by melting 1 stick of butter (ever heard a bad recipe that started like that?), to that I add about a half table spoon of minced garlic, some onion powder, ground red pepper, and some more garlic powder (I happen to like garlic if you can't tell...) Mix it all in well with the butter and then add 1 bottle of Food Club Wing Sauce and stir together.

Shake over wings and enjoy with your favorite beverage.

I like to use Franks Redhot and I will add a couple of tablespoons of butter and 1 or 2 tablespoons of vinegar just to give it a little more bite. I also like Headcountry HOT BBQ sauce. I find that it is hotter then Franks but nothing that would burn you too bad and I will just use there plain BBQ sauce for the kids.

The recipe to end all buffalo recipes:

1 quart of Franks Red Hot Original

1 stick (1/4 lb) of UN-salted butter

Ranch dressing.

Make sure Franks and Ranch are room temp. Melt the butter and add to Franks. Mix together, start adding ranch one spoon at a time until you get to where you want to be.

Bleu cheese is the original and only way to go with wings.

Go to paulys in chaska and get their recipe. I don't know if they would give it up or not but my buds and I agree they are the best.... I don't think there's any better.One more thing there are no boneless wings its just breast meat in disguise.I agree with the vinegar for the good stuff.

    • After doing a little more research it sounds like 4.0 was a pretty good and reliable motor and used to 2006. Might be a good option if I were to hang a plow on front. And they also claim this motor could go 300K miles which makes buying a older model with 100K + miles on it less of a gamble. At least one that has been taken care of. The 3.8 doesn't sound to promising from 07-11. The 3.6 definitely has more HP and also might be an option.
    • Good luck.  Hope your efforts pay off.
    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
