Recreate the famous Pizza Hut wing hut in this recipe for perfectly deep-fried chicken wings, coated in spicy buffalo sauce

Prep: 25 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 35 mins


  • 1 cup Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce
  • cup neutral cooking oil , such as avocado oil
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 egg yolk
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 24 chicken wings
  • neutral oil , for frying, like avocado oil or canola oil


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the Frank's Red Hot, cooking oil, granulated sugar, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring the pan to a simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes until it's bubbling. Reduce the heat to a simmer.

  2. Whisk the water and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Add the contents to the saucepan and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes, until it becomes thick.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside to cool, about 10 minutes.
  4. When the sauce is cooled, add the egg yolk to a medium-sized bowl. Slowly add the cooled sauce to the yolk in a steady stream, whisking constantly while adding to create an emulsion that prevents the oil from separating.

  5. When all the sauce is added to the bowl, cover the bowl.

  6. Store the sauce at room temperature until ready to use it.

  7. Use a set of kitchen shears or a sharp knife to remove the wingtip. Discard the wingtip and slice between the flat and drumette to create two pieces.

  8. Season the wings with a sprinkle of salt to taste.
  9. Meanwhile, heat about 3-inch of oil in a large Dutch oven.

  10. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F over medium-high heat, using a deep-frying thermometer to check the temperature. When the oil reaches the desired temperature, reduce the heat to medium-low.

  11. Gently drop the wings into the oil and fry for about 10 to 12 minutes until they become golden brown and are cooked all the way through to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

  12. When the wings are finished cooking, remove them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess grease and allow the oil to recover to 350 degrees F before adding additional wings.

  13. When all the wings are fried, place the wings in a large bowl. Add ½ cup of the sauce and toss the wings with a pair of tongs until they're well coated.

  14. Serve the wings immediately, as the sauce will make the coating soggy. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

For storing the sauce for longer than an hour, keep the sauce in the refrigerator. Remove it to the counter before you begin frying the wings.
