My Buffalo Wings using Tabasco




What you need:

about 7 – 9 pieces large chicken wings, separated into drumettes, flats and tips

1/2 cup plain flour

1 1/2 teapoons salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup Tabasco

What you need to do:

Mix together in a large container the flour, salt, paprika and garlic powder.  Make sure they are thoroughly combined so everything (especially the salt) is evenly distributed.

Put the chicken pieces a few pieces at a time into the flour mixture, put the lid on and shake, shake, shake until they are all coated.  Do the same with the rest of your chicken.  Just double the amount of your flour mixture if you want to cook more chicken.

Fry in hot oil for about 10-15 minutes each side and then drain (I cook about 12 minutes each side to make sure they are cooked through, as my wings are huge).

Mix together the melted butter and Tabasco.  Pour this sauce onto your fried chicken.

Best served with blue cheese dip, but mayonnaise or plain sour cream will have to do if that’s all you have.  Check out my blue cheese dip recipe below.  My daughter makes the dip and just replaces the other ingredients with what we have in the fridge.  Last night she used Japanese Mayonnaise, Camembert and Cheese Spread as we ran out of Blue Cheese and normal mayonnaise.  Still worked well!

Blue Cheese Dip:

75 grams blue cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 garlic cloves, crushed

celery and carrots to serve

What you need to do:

Mix together the cheese, sour cream, mayo and garlic in a food processor until creamy.

The buffalo wings go very nicely with the celery and carrots with the dip.  Addicting. Oh and yeah, also good with rice and beer or Coke.
