I love a good buffalo wing but I had never found a recipe that I like. I can go out to Buffalo Wild Wings all day long and eat my share of their delicious wings but that can get expensive quick.
I needed a great recipe that I could make at home that would give me that same delicious flavor as restaurant wings and I finally found it. These extra crispy double fried confit buffalo wings are honestly the best thing ever. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make or how delicious they were.
My family loves buffalo wings too, which presents a problem. I wasn’t sure that they would like these homemade versions as much as their favorite restaurant version. Well…they did! In fact, I have made these a couple of times now and they turn out deliciously perfect every time. And, there are absolutely no leftovers!
I did have to double the recipe to make plenty and they still licked the platter clean. I do love a good recipe that makes my family happy and this is definitely one of those. They loved it as much as they love my honey sriracha chicken.
This only takes about five minute to prep and then it cooks for about an hour and a half. It is absolutely perfect as an appetizer or a main course. I served it as my dinner meat the first time that I made it but I’ve done it as an appetizer for game night, too and it works just as well either way. If you love buffalo wings, then you just have to try out this recipe.
It honestly couldn’t be easier to make and your family is going to adore it. You can even serve it alongside these crockpot mashed potatoes as a meal and make your entire dinner an easy one to prepare.
