How to Make Pluckers Hot Wings

Making wings at home is pretty easy! It takes a couple of steps, but it isn’t difficult to be a master of wings in no time at all. You will need to:

  • Cut the wings. Most of the time it’s cheaper by whole wings, and quickly cut them.
  • Fry the wings. If you don’t have a fryer, you can grab a large pot and a thermometer. You will fry the wings until they are golden and crispy.

    • Make the buffalo sauce. This is where the magic happens. Simply add all of the ingredients to the pot, and heat through

  • Then toss the sauce with the wings until they are thoroughly coated with sauce.
  • Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing and enjoy!

Cutting Chicken Wings

Sure, you can buy a package of ready-to-fry buffalo wings, but you’ll probably be spending a whole lot more for the convenience. Save your money and learn how to prepare your own. With the right tools and techniques, it will only take a few minutes.

Before getting started, you need to know the anatomy of a chicken wing. There are three parts: the drumette (the part that looks like a tiny drumstick), the winglet in the middle, and the wingtip at the very end.

First, place the chicken wing on the cutting board with the cut end face towards you, and opposite the hand that you use to cut. You can stretch out the chicken wing a little to make it easier to see the three separate parts. Next, use your fingers to feel for the joint between the wingtip and the winglet. Wedge a sharp knife into the joint and press down with light pressure. When you are in the correct spot, you will be about to cut through the joint without much force. Do not cut through the bone. Sometimes finding a space to wedge the knife between the two joints is difficult. You can separate the joints more by popping them with a slight twisting action. Lastly, cut through the joint between the drumette and the winglet.

Tips for Preparing and Serving Pluckers Wing Bar Buffalo Wings

  • Use poultry shears. After you can easily find the joints separating the three parts of the chicken wing, using poultry shears makes prepping wings much fast. Just be sure not to cut through the chicken bones.
  • Don’t throw away your wingtips. You may not use the wingtips in this recipe, but they are still worth keeping for later. Freeze the wingtips in a bag until you have enough to make chicken stock.
  • Fry in batches. Get the crispiest chicken wings by cooking them in small quantities. Trying to cook too many wings at once will lower the temperature of the oil and makes the chicken oily. Keep the fried chicken wings warm in a low oven and toss them in the sauce immediately before serving.
  • Go easy on the sauce. The goal is to coat the wings with the sauce evenly, not to drown them in it. You can always serve extra sauce on the side for anyone who wants more.
  • Don’t forget the dips and sides. Buffalo wings can get a bit spicy, so remember to put out blue cheese or ranch dressing to help reduce the spicy level. You may want to add cut celery or carrots for dipping as well.

  • 1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 jalapenos sliced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

Cutting the wings

  • If the wings are not already pre-cut, straighten out the wing, and cut the wing at each joint.

Frying the wings

  • Preheat vegetable oil to 350 degrees. 
  • Deep-fry the wings for 8 to 10 minutes.   The chicken will be done when 165 degrees, juices from the chicken should be clear.  Drain chicken on a wire rack resting on a baking sheet.

Spicy Buffalo Wing Sauce

  • While the chicken is cooking prepare the sauce by combining the hot sauce, butter, vinegar, jalapeno slices, and ground black pepper in a small pot.

    In the directions for making the spicy sauce, it says to add vinegar, but I don’t see vinegar listed in the ingredients. How much vinegar does it call for?
    Thank you
