On Sunday I picked up chicken wings from Costco to make some game day wings. 3 pounds of wings for slightly under $14. Usually, I opt for take-out wings, because they are easy. I thought to myself, "I am going to try to attempt my own wing making abilities", and to my surprise they turned out pretty awesome.  I found this recipe online and wanted to share it with you.

   I did a buffalo sauce and brown sugar bourbon season. I ended up doing two different batches and it was hard to say which one was my favorite. I also put my wings on tin foil so clean up is a breeze. They were crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and delicious. My husband even approved and he is a tough wing critic. Now I can make wings, save money, and the save myself the time it takes to go pick them up. A lot of game day snacks and appetizers are high calories, too much sugar or usually high on carbohydrates.   If you are heading to a game day get together these would be a great option. 



  • Season chicken wings lightly with seasoned salt.

  • Mix flour, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika together in a wide, shallow bowl. Press wings into flour mixture to coat and arrange onto a large plate so they do not touch. Refrigerate coated wings for 15 to 30 minutes.

  • Dredge wings again in flour mixture and return to the plate. Refrigerate wings again 15 to 30 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Fry chicken wings in hot oil until crisp and no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 9 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Transfer fried wings to a large stainless steel bowl. Drizzle sauce over the wings and toss to coat.
