Hooter’s Hot Wings

Hooter’s makes a different kind of hot wing than you normally find. Theirs are battered. Most hot wing recipes are simply fried, but by adding this crispy batter to the outside of the wing gives you more flavor, and more crunchy bits!


4 1/2 LB – 5 LB. Chicken Wings ( cut into drumettes and flappers)
2 C. Whole Wheat Flour
1 C. All Purpose Flour
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

In large mixing bowl mix flours, salt, paprika and cayenne pepper together, blend well. Cut chicken wings into drumettes and flappers. Wash and drain chicken. Coat chicken in flour mixture, refrigerate chicken wings for 90 minutes.
When ready to deep fry chicken wings heat oil to 375. Place chicken pieces in hot oil, do not crowd. Fry chicken wings until golden brown, remove from oil and drain. When all wings have been fried, place in a large bowl. Add Hot Sauce mixture and mix completely. Use a fork or tongs to place chicken pieces on a serving platter. Serve immediately and with lots of paper towels.

Interesting recipe, although it does not appear to be complete, and I'm not so sure about the accuracy/authenticity of the recipe. Additionally, whomever wrote it needs to learn that to batter something, you actually need batter. A bowl of flour is not batter.

Andy, I think he meant there's no binder to stick the "batter" to the wings. It's not batter, just flour. Usually there's at least an egg bath involved. :tu

It might not be the thickest in the world, but after the wings have soaked, the flour sticks just fine for me. Maybe it's not true "batter" but it works.

Both actually, plus the list of spices looks a bit light.

There's no soaking (in a marinade) called for by this recipe. Batter is a mixture of flour or some other ground meal(s) and a liquid. Scott is correct, a bowl of flour is just coating in a bowl of flour. Dipping in egg, followed by flour is just that, dipping in egg, followed by flour (usually repeated twice), sometimes referred to as dredging. Dredging wouldn't really work well with this recipe unless you did it after the refrigeration period, as during those 90 minutes, most of the mixture would probably run off.

This is how my mom always made fried chicken. Just flour and pepper. No egg.
I doub't that is how Hooters does it though. Without the egg, it will be a very thin layer.

Andy,

I didn't take it as a knock. I was just curious as to the "incomplete" part of your post. When I first got it, I noticed there was no hot sauce mixture recipe (it calls for a hot sauce mixture) so I just use my own version.

And I probably should have said washing rather than soaking. :)

T.G
02-26-2010, 11:44 AM
What do you use for a sauce mixture, just curious.

I tend to use a mix of unsalted butter melted in a pan with some finely chopped fresh garlic and a pinch of fresh ground black pepper; cook garlic in the butter for about a minute until it becomes fragrant, add a generous portion of franks red hot (for body & density) and a little Tabasco for a little kick and the vinegar bite and optionally an just a bit of a hotter sauce like Berserker Stronger than Death or one of Blair's sauces. Not much though because it'll overpower the flavor of the food. Depending on ones tastes and the wings, add salt to taste just before adding the wings to coat.

Hooters does not use a batter, but flour. I have watched them being made many many many times, and I think they just go chicken to flour, no egg. Also they are not trying to get much flavor from the flour so I'm sure it doesn't have much elae.

By the way they now have Lemon Pepper as a new flavor and it kicks butt! But not spicy.

Hooters Chicken Wing Sauce you don’t even need to leave the house for this recipe.


While you may have to provide you own Hooter’s girls, you can make wing sauce just like they do. When your wings are done, coat them in this sauce and serve.
1 1/2 C. butter (3 Sticks Butter)(softened)
1/2 C. + 2 Tbs. Tabasco Sauce
3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
3/4 tsp. Paprika
3/4 tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
3/8 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
2 Tbs. Chili Sauce
Mix all ingredients together. This will store well in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Serve this with the Hooter’s Hot Wings.


Here's the hot sauce mixture to go with the wings. I added more brown sugar than what it calls for.

Just tried my first batch and they turned out pretty well. These things are really really good. I don't think they're Hooter's quality, but I'm quite satisfied!:dr

I would love to read the nex page and a half, lol, but I will cut to the chase.
Terminology aside, very few fried chicken recipes ever call for an egg wash.
Hell, I guess. I act like I checked or something, lol. But as my first job was
frying chicken, I know it is more of a milky marinade of spices. Eggs are fine
though but with wings I think flour is sufficient.

No, here is simple...."Jamie Carrol's USAF hot stoner wings" recipe.
Fry wing parts. In microwave, melt one stick of butter. Add to
mixture one bottle of texas pete. Stir, pour over wings. Eat.

Smoke giant hooter over plate of bones.

I took a bag home and cooked up some wings, no egg wash is used and they fried up pretty nice but needed a little more salt IMO.

Yes, Walmart (at least ours) carries this. I've had a bag in the pantry for better than a year, using a little here and there. One pound bag of the dry mixture is used on five pounds of wings. Directions are simple. Pour 5 lbs of wings and the whole 1 lb package of the dry mix into a bowl. Toss until all wings are coated well. Put wings on cookie sheets (or foil), place in fridge for 90 minutes. Cook in 350 degree oil until done. No egg/milk wash needed. No muss, no fuss. I just use how much is needed for the amount of wings I'll be cooking, put the rest back in a zip-lock bag for future needs.
