For the Wings:

  • 2-3 pounds chicken wings, split at joints, tips discarded
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Buffalo Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (Frank’s RedHot is a classic choice)
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust for more heat)

For Serving:

  • Celery sticks
  • Carrot sticks
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing


  1. Preheat the Oil:
    • If frying, heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, deep pan to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Wings:
    • In a bowl, mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
    • Dredge each chicken wing in the flour mixture, ensuring an even coating.
  3. Fry the Wings:
    • Carefully place the coated wings in the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Make the Buffalo Sauce:
    • In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
    • Add hot sauce, white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Stir well and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce is well combined.
  5. Toss the Wings:
    • Once the wings are fried, transfer them to a large bowl.
    • Pour the Buffalo sauce over the wings and toss until each wing is coated in the flavorful sauce.
  6. Serve and Garnish:
    • Arrange the Buffalo wings on a serving platter.
    • Serve with celery and carrot sticks on the side, and provide ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.

Tips and Variations:

  • For a healthier option, you can bake the wings instead of frying. Coat them with a light layer of oil and bake at 400°F (200°C) for 45-50 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Adjust the heat of the Buffalo sauce by adding more or less cayenne pepper according to your preference.


Buffalo wings are a crowd-pleaser that never goes out of style. With this easy recipe, you can recreate the classic combination of crispy wings and tangy Buffalo sauce in the comfort of your own kitchen. So, gather your ingredients, heat up the oil or preheat the oven, and get ready to enjoy a plate of finger-licking Buffalo wings that will spice up any occasion.
