>>> And now here is their most popular meal of all – HOOTERS BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS WITH HOT SAUCE AND BLEU CHEESE OR RANCH DRESSING…
–Hooters Buffalo Chicken Wings–
> Chicken Wings
10 chicken wing pieces
Vegetable oil (for frying)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
> Hooter’s Chicken Wing Hot Sauce
1 1/2 cup Butter (softened)
1/2 cup Tabasco Sauce
2 tablespoons Tabasco Sauce
3 tablespoons Brown Sugar
3/4 teaspoon Paprika
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
3/8 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
2 tablespoons Chili Sauce
> On the side:
Hooters Ranch Dressing or Bleu Cheese Dressing…
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F. You want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely – an inch or so deep at least.
Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients well-blended.
Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt in a small bowl.
If the wings are frozen, be sure to defrost and dry them. Put the wings into a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating each wing evenly. Put the wings in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 minutes. (This will help the breading to stick to the wings when fried.)
Put all the wings into the hot oil and fry them for 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the wings begin to turn dark brown.
Remove the wings from the oil to a paper towel to drain. But don’t let them sit too long, because you want to serve the wings hot.
Quickly put the wings into a large bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir, coating all of the wings evenly. You could also use a large plastic container with a lid for this. Put all the wings inside the container, add the sauce, put on the lid, then shake. Serve with bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side.
–Hooters Ranch Dressing–
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until completely mixed. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
–Hooters Bleu Cheese Dressing–
1 cup regular mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
6 oz blue cheese
1 Tablespoon apple cider or wine vinegar
1/ 2 teaspoon pepper (optional) 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (optional)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Crumble the blue cheese, and mix it all together.
–Hooters Buffalo Shrimp–
> Buffalo Shrimp Sauce:
1/4 cup hot sauce
1/4 cup butter
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 dash black pepper
1 dash garlic powder
Combine in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is mixed through. Cover, and keep warm over low heat.
12 uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
Combine egg and milk in a small bowl. Place flour in a large zip-type bag. Coat six of the shrimp with egg mixture, then toss them in the bag of flour and shake well to coat.
Leave these shrimp in the bag, and repeat the process with the remaining shrimp. Make sure they are all well coated with flour. Refrigerate about 5 minutes while the deep fryer heats up to 375 F.
Deep fry for 8 to 10 minutes, until shrimp tails are dark brown. Remove, drain, and toss gently with Buffalo Sauce.
–Hooters Buffalo Chicken Sandwich–
boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup hot sauce
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup olive oil
fresh bread roll
bleu cheese dressing
Put boneless chicken breast to a plate. In a small bowl, add all-purpose flour, paprika, and pepper.
Mix them well. Pour milk in another bowl. Dip chicken in milk. Coat chicken in flour mix. Repeat the process.
Put coated chicken on a plate. Cover it, chill for half an hour. Medium heat the saucepan. Add hot sauce, and butter to the pan. Bring them to boil, stir. Set the pan aside.
Medium heat a pan. Add olive oil to the pan. Add coated chicken. Cook for 8 minutes, turning once.
