Why pay high prices at those restaurants when you can make these at home for so much less? I hope you enjoy them...and you can serve them in a bikini top if you like :o). ** I have included a healthier version at the bottom also which will save 400-600+ calories(from fat)**. My family likes these as a meal with white or yellow rice and a salad. This recipe is from copycat recipes and allrecipes and I have seen others post it as their own:o)...either way it is VERY good.
In a zip lock bag(gallon size) combine paprika,cayenne,salt and flour then add wings and shake well to coat evenly. Refrigerate for about one to one and a half hours.
Heat oil to 375(enough to cover wings). Add wings and cook for 10-15 minutes until thoroughly cooked and are browning nicely. While the wings are cooking combine the butter,hot sauce,pepper and garlic powder(or salt) and heat in a sauce pan while stirring until butter is melted and it is mixed well. I have used a pyrex measuring cup in the microwave to do this step just as successfully.
Place cooked wings in large bowl and pour the sauce over them and toss well to coat. Place on a serving dish and enjoy with some blue cheese dressing(or ranch) and celery sticks.
**If you want to make them healthier you can cook them in the oven on a non stick pan ...just spray the pan and the wings with PAM first and cook at 375 for about 50 minutes and they come out just as good...AND if you want them even healthier just use the prepared hot wing sauce with the butter flavor in it.**
