Print Recipe


  • 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


  • In a large ziplock bag, combine the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to fully combine.
  • 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.
  • While the wings chill in the fridge, heat 3 inches of oil in a large stock pot or dutch oven to 360F.
  • 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.
  • When you start frying your last batch of wings, start your sauce.
  • 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.
  • Use a whisk to stir the sauce often while cooking, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Once all the wings are done and drained of oil, add them all to a large bowl and toss in the hot sauce.
  • Serve immediately, with ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.
  • Enjoy!
