This Fried Buffalo Wings Recipe is a real winner! Not only is this possibly the BEST buffalo wings recipe, but these are GLUTEN FREE chicken wings. Yes, we can have it all!

This Fried Buffalo Wings recipe is a labor of love. A labor of love to my husband, Pat. Let’s be honest, not much of what I cook is in honor of him. He hates onions and I LOVE ONIONS…so I usually use a lot of onions. He hates rosemary and I LOVE ROSEMARY…so I use a lot of rosemary. Most of the time when cooking, my attitude is, YOU’RE CRAZY FOR NOT LIKING THAT so you can pick around it. Does that make me a bad wife? Don’t answer that…

But today is all about Pat. Pat LOVES Fried Buffalo Wings. He is a man of simple tastes, and that’s really okay, even if I do try to push his tastes sometimes. Today I’m keeping it simple with the absolute BEST Buffalo Wings recipe, something everyone is sure to love. And as a bonus, these are GLUTEN FREE chicken wings! They are the perfect appetizer for tailgating (our favorite thing to do) and they are just in time for the holidays and Super Bowl prep.

I texted Pat while he was at work to let him know these fried buffalo wings would be waiting for him. My typically even-keeled husband was very excited. He’s always asking why I can’t make more recipes like this, so today is his day! And lucky for us all, they’re totally easy, crave worthy, and DELICIOUS. They have just the right amount of sticky and spicy (a secret ingredient helps with that), but not too hot to where I can’t enjoy them too. Is this the perfect Fried Buffalo Wings recipe? It just might be!

This is the BEST Fried Buffalo Wings recipe, perfect for game day. Even better is that these are gluten free chicken wings, so everyone can enjoy them!

Gluten Free Chicken Wings

We all want to enjoy fried buffalo wings, even if we can’t consume gluten. And that’s usually a hard thing to do. But I figured out how to make gluten free chicken wings with the help of one of my favorite brands. The secret to making these bad boys GLUTEN FREE is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour! I am OBSESSED with this stuff. I love all Bob’s Red Mill products, but this just might be my favorite thing yet. You can use it exactly as you would all purpose flour in baking, recipes, and everything in between. It makes keeping recipes gluten free SO much easier. My very favorite company just got even better with this product. You guys have to try it!

If you’re not worried about making them gluten free, you can use regular flour and follow the rest of the recipe as is.

How to Make Fried Buffalo Wings 

Fried Buffalo Wings aren’t as hard to make at home as it might seem. All you need is a large pot and some oil to fry them up, and they come out super crispy and delicious! And you might be surprised at how simple it is to make gluten free chicken wings too. Just use gluten free flour and you’re good to go.

How to Make Gluten Free Fried Buffalo Wings:

  1. Combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt & pepper in a large resealable bag.
  2. Place about 10 chicken wings in the bag at a time, seal, and shake to fully coat them in the flour mixture.
  3. Repeat this process until all wings are covered, then place them on a plate and let them sit in the refrigerator for 10-30 minutes (this helps the flour adhere to the chicken wings).
  4. Heat 3 inches of oil in a large pot to 360°F (do this while the wings are in the fridge).
  5. Place the wings in the oil (about 10 at a time) and let them fry for 10-15 minutes, or until they are brown and crispy.
  6. Use a slotted spoon to remove wings from the oil, and set them aside on a paper towel.

To make the sauce:

  1. Heat butter, buffalo sauce, and honey in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and let it cook for 10-15 minutes (stir often).
  3. Combine fried buffalo wings in a bowl with the sauce to coat.

This fried buffalo wings recipe is just so delicious, and much easier to make than you think. Now everyone can have the best buffalo wings on game day with these gluten free chicken wings! Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, like blue cheese or ranch.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper less if you don't love spicy
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 pounds chicken wingettes or chicken wings, with joints removed
  • oil for frying
  • 1 cup Buffalo Sauce (store-bought or click for recipe)
  • 1/2 cup salted butter one stick
  • 3 tablespoons honey
Instructions
  1. In a large ziplock bag, combine the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to fully combine.
  2. Add in the chicken wings about 10 at a time, sealing and shaking to fully coat the wings in the flour mixture. Remove wings from the mixture and place on a paper plate. Repeat with all the wings until they are all fully coated in the flour mixture. Place wings in the fridge for 10-30 minutes; this will help the flour to fully adhere to the wings.
  3. While the wings chill in the fridge, heat 3 inches of oil in a large stock pot or dutch oven to 360F.
  4. Fry the wings in batches of 10 for 10-15 minutes, or until the wings are crispy, browned, and fully cooked through. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  5. When you start frying your last batch of wings, start your sauce.
  6. Heat the butter, hot sauce, and honey or medium/high heat in a small sauce pan. Stir while you cook. Once bubbling, reduce to simmer and continue cooking.
  7. Use a whisk to stir the sauce often while cooking, about 10-15 minutes.
  8. Once all the wings are done and drained of oil, add them all to a large bowl and toss in the hot sauce.
  9. Serve immediately, with ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.
  10. Enjoy!

Frank's Red Hot sauce contains gluten - I know from first hand experience (distilled vinegar) This recipe is not gluten free as it stands.
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Jerry, here is where I got my info. Frank's website lists their products as gluten free. http://www.franksredhot.com/faqs/
    Bob
    Distilled vinegar is gluten free. Malt vinegar is not. That might be the mix up. I believe Frank's says "Gluten free" on the bottle
