Make the infamous Hooter’s Buffalo Wings at home with a few simple ingredients. Perfect for game day snacking too!
Warning! This is by no means a healthy recipe; however, every once in a while you crave greasy, fried foods. Well, at least I do and I’m sure millions of others do as well; especially during the Super Bowl. Which brings me to today’s recipe for Hooter’s Buffalo Wings.I have to say, I’ve never eaten them there myself, but my nieces and nephews say they are fantastic. Hubby hasn’t been there in a long time, but said they were pretty darn close from what he could remember.
I’m not a huge fan myself of spicy foods, so I did make mine more on the mild side. If you like them hot, you can add extra hot sauce to yours. I’m good with 1-2 wings, then I go for the celery dipped in bleu cheese dressing.
As for the nutritional information on this one, I tried to figure it out, but since I can’t determine how much oil is absorbed into the chicken and not all of the sauce is eaten. I did find the nutritional information for the frozen variety of Hooters Chicken Wings to use a guide. These facts are based on a 3oz (or 3 wing) serving size.

- Combine the flour, salt, pepper and paprika in a bowl.
- Rinse the chicken, pat dry then coat the chicken in the flour mixture. Refrigerate wings for 1 hour; then coat the wings with the remaining flour mixture.
- Heat butter, hot sauce, pepper, garlic powder and salt in a medium saucepan until the butter melts; then let simmer on low to keep warm.
- Deep fry chicken in 375 degree oil for 13-15 minutes. (You can use a deep fryer or a pot on top of the stove). You may have to do this in batches to avoid overcrowding.
- Immediately toss fried chicken in the butter mixture and remove with a slotted spoon.
