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 myself, but my nieces and nephews say they are fantastic. My husband 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.
