Crouton’s Hot Party Wings

This is a standard recipe for buffalo wings, and very simple. But I’ve found that if you stick with the standards and keep things simple, your wings will turn out fine every time!


  • 2-3 dozen chicken wings
  • 1 12-oz bottle Texas Pete or Franks’ Hot Sauce
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • a few grindings of black pepper
  • peanut oil
  • bleu cheese dressing
  • celery sticks


Cut tips off the wings and discard. Cut each wing at the joint. Rinse and let dry on paper towels.

Prepare hot sauce by melting butter in a bowl, then adding hot sauce, pepper flakes, and ground pepper.

Deep fry wings in peanut oil, six minutes per batch at about 360 degrees. Dump fried wings onto paper towels to soak up oil. Immerse each batch of wings in hot sauce and let sit for at least a minute (they longer they sit in the hot sauce, the hotter they’ll be . . . I give them two minutes). Remove wings from sauce with tongs, shake off excess sauce, place in a casserole dish. Between frying & soaking new batches, keep already-prepared wings warm in oven.
