Hooters’ Hot Wings

Hooter’s Hot Wings, is straight out of my book,’s Dining Out At Home, you can see this recipe featured on page number 109.

bowl of Hooters Hot Wings

Unlike many other restaurants that serve hot wings, Hooters™ batters their wings before frying them, so you have crunchy, crispy wings bathed in hot sauce. These wings are perfect for a tailgating party or anytime you have a large gathering—but you’ll have to provide your own Hooters™ girls.

These wings are wonderful now you can make these at home!


  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 1/2 to 5 pounds chicken wings


In a large mixing bowl, mix the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, paprika, and cayenne pepper together, and blend well. Cut the chicken wings into drumettes and flappers. Wash and drain the chicken. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture and refrigerate the wings for 90 minutes. Prepare the Hooters Hot Wing Sauce. When you’re ready to deep-fry the chicken wings, heat the oil

to 375°F in a large pot or deep-fryer. Place the chicken pieces into the hot oil and do not crowd them. Fry the wings until they’re golden brown, then remove them from the oil and drain them on paper towels. When all the wings have been fried, place them in a large bowl. Add the Hooters’ Hot Wing Sauce and mix completely. Use a fork or tongs to place the chicken pieces on a serving platter. Serve immediately (and with lots of paper towels!).

    These are “dredged” not “battered” or “breaded”.

    Nobody that knows anything about wings would even consider breading them – deep fry them as is, toss them in a mixture of 1/2 melted butter & 1/2 Franks Hot Sauce – dip in Ken’s Blue Cheese dressing and voila!!

      Hooters wings are quite good even if they are breaded.

    • Vicki Chilton

      I agree ~ no breading. I steam the wings to remove some of the bad fat, then chill before deep frying. Can’t go wrong with the mixture of melted butter and Franks Hot Sauce (tabasco is pretty good too).

        So are you guys saying Hooters doesn’t know anything about wings 😉

        • Vicki Chilton


          • stephaniemanley

            So you don’t like wings that are breaded? Hooters breads their wings.

          • Vicki Chilton

            What is your problem?

          • stephaniemanley

            I am unaware that I have problem. Thanks for your comment. I only asked if you liked if wings were breaded or not. Hooters are breaded, that’s all.

            I hope you have a great day 😉

          • Vicki Chilton

            My original comment clearly answers that question. You DO have problems, mental problems!
