Game Day Provisions: Hot Buffalo Fried Chicken

The Technique

Hot Buffalo Fried Chicken

Tailgating socials are bound to offer a wide variety of foods & we always want to fill our plate with just a bit of everything that’s been prepared. Hot Buffalo Fried Chicken is the perfect game day snack as the petite size leaves room for all of the other flavors we crave. The seasonings mimic the spicy tastes of a traditional wing without the saucy mess to keep game day outfits looking their best. Expect a mildly hot flavor with tangy vinegar undertones filled with delightful crunch.

The Basic Fundamentals

Cold fried chicken can be a wonderful tailgating addition if you want to tackle a little prep early. Fry up to a day ahead of time, cool 30 minutes, place in a zip-top plastic container & refrigerate. Before heading out the door to your tent location, simply grab the chicken & transport in your cooler. Place on a pretty platter when you arrive.

1 {12-oz} bottle hot sauce
1 cup whole milk
2 eggs
3 1/2 lbs chicken drumettes
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp table salt
Vegetable oil
Blue Cheese-Ranch Dipping Sauce
Celery & carrot sticks
Garnish: Freshly ground black pepper

Whisk together the hot sauce, the milk & the eggs in a large bowl. Add the chicken drumettes. Cover & refrigerate 4 to 24 hours. Remove the chicken from the hot sauce mixture, discarding hot sauce mixture. Stir together the flour & the next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2-inches in an enamel coated cast iron Dutch oven & heat to 350 degrees. Fry the chicken in 4 batches 7 to 8 minutes or until chicken registers 165 degrees. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels. Serve with Blue Cheese-Ranch Dipping Sauce, celery & carrot sticks. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

The hot sauce may be omitted for a milder flavor. Adjust the recipe according to your personal tastes.

 Set up a dredging station on your countertop or organize the food on half sheet pans on a small table if cooking outdoors. Line up the items in the order in which they will be used. Start to one side of the hot grease with the final item in the lineup being a wire rack covered in paper towels to drain the hot food. Have several pairs of tongs to use for different tasks. Use one pair to dredge raw foods & slip items into the hot oil. Use another pair of tongs to turn pieces while cooking or remove them from the grease. A spider or a large slotted spoon is a great tool for retrieving the food from the grease.
