Fried Chicken Wings


  • 12small chicken wings
  • ¼ teaspoon seasoned salt, or to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) bottle Buffalo wing sauce (such as Frank’s®), or to taste
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Season chicken wings lightly with seasoned salt.


  • Step 2

    Mix flour, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika together in a wide, shallow bowl. Press wings into flour mixture to coat and arrange onto a large plate so they do not touch. Refrigerate coated wings for 15 to 30 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Dredge wings again in flour mixture and return to the plate. Refrigerate wings again 15 to 30 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Step 5

    Fry chicken wings in hot oil until crisp and no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 9 to 12 minutes.An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Step 6

    Transfer fried wings to a large stainless steel bowl. Drizzle sauce over the wings and toss to coat.
