Featured with this recipe
We are proud to be the home of the FIRST copycat recipe for these Wingers Wings and Freakin’ Amazing Sauce! Since posting the recipe for this best buffalo sauce back in 2009, it has become a favorite all over the internet. Other bloggers have used our recipe, but we are the ORIGINAL (well, the original COPYCAT.. haha)! We love whipping up a batch for game-day, for parties, birthday, or any weeknight dinner. These buffalo chicken wings are one of our most shared recipes, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you.
This is one of the easiest chicken wing recipes you’ll ever try! First you’ll need to grab whole wings at the grocery store. This sauce can also be used on chicken drumettes.
For the Wings:
- Flour – I like to use Wondra flour, but regular flour is great too
- Cayenne pepper – whisk in the red pepper with the flour mixture. You can also add a teaspoon garlic powder, paprika, or a little onion powder.
- Salt and black pepper – sprinkle into the flour mixture.
- Chicken wings
- Oil – for deep frying
Wingers Freakin’ Amazing Sauce:
The sauce recipe for these wings couldn’t be easier! All you need are two ingredients, and a little bit of water.
- Franks Hot Sauce – it has to be Franks Red Hot Sauce, no other sauce will taste as good for homemade buffalo sauce. It’s truly the secret ingredient that makes this wing recipe the absolute best!
- Brown sugar – add as much as you like to balance out the spiciness of the hot sauce.
Suggestions for Wingers Wings and Sauce
- To make the wings even more spicy and crispy, try combining some corn starch and buffalo sauce along with the flour mixture. Our dear readers tell us that will give the skin an extra crispy kick!
- Add a little ranch dressing to the amazing sauce to make Wingers Creamy Amazing Sauce. It’s the perfect salad dressing, French fry dipping sauce, veggie dip, you name it!
- If you’ve ever dined at Wingers, you know about their bottomless popcorn. Try dipping popcorn in the creamy amazing sauce. You’re welcome.
- Love blue cheese? Try these wings with our creamy blue cheese sauce!
- Add Freakin’ Amazing sauce to burgers, grilled chicken, kabobs, pork, or even baked potatoes. You cannot go wrong with this stuff!
- We’ve tried many kinds of hot sauce over the years, and Franks Hot Sauce is by far superior. You can find it at your regular grocery store. Trust me, it’s worth it to find that particular brand. Nothing else tastes quite like it!
Cool the Spice
These famous wings are delicious, but just like most buffalo sauce recipes, they can be spicy, so foods that go well with them are more balancing things: a baked potato and mac and cheese. Keeping it cool, a simple salad, lettuce, celery sticks, olive oil, red onion, grape tomatoes, and some ranch or honey mustard would also pair well. You can drizzle honey over the wings to balance out the hotness of the buffalo wing sauce. You can also dip them into blue cheese dressing.
How to Store Leftovers
Store any leftover wings in an airtight container or wrapped in foil in the fridge for up to three days. You can reheat and bake chicken wings by placing the wings on a baking sheet or pan and placing in the oven until heated through. Baked wings will revive the crispness of freshly fried wings.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can serve French fries, fruit, pizza, sandwiches, salads, just about anything!
Avocado goes great with hot wings because it’s fatty and cooling in the mouth, so something like guacamole and fresh corn tortilla chips would be a great and delicious choice.
Buffalo Wings are the most popular wing flavor in America. There’s something about spicy chicken…But we love Wingers Original Amazing Sauce because it is sweet with a bit of a kick. Other favorites are garlic-parmesan wings or lemon pepper wings.
If your sauce isn’t thick enough, you can add a little cornstarch with cold water, then add to the hot sauce while it’s cooking.
