Garlic Hot Wings

DSC 0004

Even though the Steelers are not in the Superbowl this year, I am still excited to watch some football on Sunday. I love watching a good football game and miss the season during the spring and summer. A really good part of watching the Superbowl is partaking in all of the game day snacks that are popular. I know I like a good chicken wing every now and then, so I wanted to share my favorite hot garlic wing recipe.

I believe that chicken wings should be crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. While I know that many people may feel that coating the wings in anything prior to frying them is wrong, I just can’t get enough of the crispiness caused by the cornstarch coating. It is just so good that I can’t worry about authenticity.

This sauce is perfect for me. I can control the heat, although I like a lot. Plus, I can pack it full of garlic for a more complex sauce. I hope you enjoy this year’s game as well as all of the snacks.

Hot and Crispy Chicken Wings

by Jessica

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes


Ingredients (1 dozen chicken wings)

  • 1 dozen chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot
  • Habanero hot sauce to taste


Begin heating oil to 350 degrees

Combine cornstarch and spices in a medium-sized bowl. Toss the chicken wings to coat.

When the oil reaches temperature, fry the wings in batches for 8 minutes, or until cooked through, brown, and crispy.

In a separate sauce pan, heat the butter on medium heat. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes. Turn the heat to low and add the hot sauce. For a spicier sauce, add some habanero hot sauce.

Remove the wings from the oil and place in the hot sauce mixture. Toss to coat. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
