How to Make Southern Style Hot Wings

Hey Y’all! In the South there is nothing better than some hot and spicy wings. In this post I have decided to make some delicious spicy chicken wings. I always choose to make a cool salad to balance out the spiciness of the wings. I’ve made a baby spinach salad, with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. So keep reading for the step by step recipe, and the finished meal.


First, we’ll begin with a bag of chicken wings which have first and second wing sections. You’ll want to put your wings in a bowl. Now I know a lot of people don’t recommend washing your chicken, but I always wash mine.

Once I’ve washed my chicken wings, I will put down a piece of foil and then I will place a paper towel over to dry my chicken. You want to be very careful with chicken, because you don’t want to contaminate your surfaces. *Always remember to bleach down your countertops and your sink*

When you’ve finished drying your chicken now you’re ready to season your chicken wings. I like to use salt, pepper, and since I’m Southern, I use Texas Pete Hot Sauce.

After you finish seasoning your wings, you will want to put oil in your pot. *Do Not Flour Your Chicken*

Add your chicken wings to the hot oil, in order to  begin frying them.

When your wings begin to bubble to the top, remove them from the pot.

You will want to butter a pan and then add your wings.

Add your choice of barbecue sauce and more hot sauce if desired. Place them in the oven on 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. Your wings are already done, so don’t leave them in any longer. They’re placed in the oven, in order to get a nice sear on them.

When your wings are done, carefully take them out of the oven and allow them to cool.

Next, I’ll prepare my salad I like to use organic baby spinach. However, you can make your salad with the greens of your choice.

Always wash your spinach and then set it on a papertowel to dry.

I decided to also include tomatoes and cucumber in my salad, which is nice and simple.

Once I’ve washed and cut my tomatoes and cucumber, I place them in a bowl. Add a salad dressing of your choice and you’re ready to serve.

Here is your delicious Southern Style Hot Wings and your nice and simple, but delectable salad. Hope Y’all enjoyed this post and this dish!
