Copycat Wingstop Cajun Wings

Oh man did these copycat Wingstop Cajun Wings ever hit the spot. I love Buffalo wings. You know, the classic flavors. These wings are like that but kicked up with Cajun seasoning. That’s where these wings took Buffalo wings from great to fantastic. I cannot wait for the next time I make a batch of these wings. I found myself craving them again the moment I finished them. As simple and as easy as they were to make, they are certainly one of my favorites!

Copycat Wingstop Cajun Wings

Deep-Fried Greatness

These copycat Wingstop Cajun Wings are spot-on great. I made a small batch for my lunch the other day. Since it was just me I used my lil ole Fry Daddy fryer. It’s small but it more than does the job. It only takes 8-10 minutes to fry up a batch of delicious wings like these. And it uses only a few cups of oil, which is a big savings over hauling out my big restaurant-style fryer. Yeah that baby’ll cook a ton of wings but boy does it ever use a lot of oil!

You gotta use Frank’s RedHot for the sauce. Gotta.

Copycat Anchor Bar Buffalo Wings

There are three things I can sit down at a table to and eat all day long. They are (in no particular order): peel and eat shrimp, a crab boil, and copycat Anchor Bar Buffalo wings. Great food is even better when you can eat it with your hands. These wings have just the right amount of heat, the perfect vinegar hit, and a buttery flavor that is just the perfect combination. And, bite after bite, I cannot get enough of these wings.

Copycat Anchor Bar Buffalo Wings

Copycat Plucker’s Medium Buffalo Wings

It’s a tremendous understatement to say that I love Plucker’s wing sauces. I’ve tried many of their bottled sauces and they are all absolutely fantastic. I devoured my last bottle of medium Buffalo sauce, so I had to resort to making a copycat Plucker’s medium Buffalo wings sauce. Oh, and all was right in the world again! The perfect amount of heat, just enough to wake me up but not so much to make me cry. Wonderful traditional wing flavor. These are the wings that are destined to disappear in no time.

Copycat Plucker's Medium Buffalo Wings

I cut the recipe down so I could enjoy a small batch of copycat Plucker’s medium Buffalo wings for my lunch. No point in heating up my huge restaurant-style deep fryer for just a handful of wings. So, I used my Fry Daddy fryer instead. This little fryer gets a workout in my house. It’s the perfect size for a small batch of wings.

I usually reach for the Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce when I make anything Buffalo-style. And sometimes I’ll go for Crystal Hot Sauce, which has a wonderful Louisiana-inspired flavor. You want a traditional cayenne sauce, and not something flavored like a habanero mango hot sauce!

Copycat KFC Honey BBQ Wings

These copycat KFC honey BBQ wings are some of the best deep-fried wings I’ve had. The coat is crazy crunchy and flavorful. It ‘bites’ thru perfectly. No fear of taking a bite and having the entire batter come off at one. And the sauce? My goodness me. The sauce starts with a store-bought sauce, adds a few ingredients, and ends up being just out-of-this-world great. I’d use the sauce on anything that requires a good, thick, smoky BBQ sauce. On these wings it’s perfect. These are finger-licking good wings if ever there were any!

Copycat KFC Honey BBQ Wings

These Wings Are Crazy Good

If you don’t follow Todd Wilbur, you should. He is the master of everything copycat. From restaurant dishes, like this copycat KFC honey BBQ wings recipe, to copycat grocery store items, and a whole lot more, Todd has it going on. Like with everything else of his I’ve made, he nailed this recipe and technique perfectly. I loved these wings. They’re a real winner.

If I’m cooking for a crowd, I’ll break out my big deep fryer. But, if it’s just me, I’ll fire up my Fry Daddy fryer. It’s the perfect size. It fries everything perfectly. And as an added bonus, it doesn’t use a lot of oil, which saves me money. And that means I can buy more wing!

Copycat Hooter’s Hot Buffalo Wings

It’s hard to beat Hooter’s for good ole hot wings. If you don’t have a restaurant nearby you have three options. One, move. Two, order some of their breading and sauces online and make the original yourself. Or three, make this copycat Hooter’s hot buffalo Wings from scratch. Any option will do, but I have to admit that these wings came out spot-on like what I’ve had at the restaurant. They’re hot but not crazy hot. They’re breaded perfectly. They taste wonderful and they disappear in no time. That’s the sign of darned good wings.

Copycat Hooter's Hot Buffalo Wings

Great Heat and Great Flavor

I wouldn’t do anything different about these copycat Hooter’s hot Buffalo wings. Except maybe more of them, more often. You can tone down the heat but leaving out the cayenne and make a medium version of these wings, but then they wouldn’t be hot wings! Doh!

If it’s just me or the two of us, I’ll use my lil ole trusty Fry Daddy fryer to make these wings. I can fit a good 8 pieces in without any fear of over-crowding. As an added bonus, it doesn’t use much oil and it is super easy to clean up. It sure makes deep frying a breeze.

Copycat Hooter’s Medium Buffalo Wings

This is it. The mountaintop. The best. Some of my all-time favorite restaurant chain wings, made at home. These copycat Hooter’s medium Buffalo wings were so good that my stomach is growling while I’m writing this post. The flashbacks are making me smile. And hungry. These wings have the perfect breading, the perfect ‘bite’. They’re cooked perfectly. The sauce is spicy, but not too spicy. It’s buttery. Buttery-finger-licking-good. I could eat a mountain of these wings.

Copycat Hooter's Medium Buffalo Wings

Less Heat But Oh So Good

These copycat Hooter’s medium Buffalo wings are the kind you can serve to a crowd and serve proudly. Everyone will enjoy them. There’s not enough heat to really scare anyone off. Serve them with Ranch or blue cheese dressing in case people want to cool off a bit. Sure, add some carrot sticks and celery too. Personally, I don’t go for the ‘garden salad’ additions. I’m here for the wings.

I used Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce to make the sauce for these wings. It’s hard to stray from the original when making Buffalo-style wings. I do admit to using Crystal Hot Sauce from time-to-time, though. It’s got the right heat with a little Louisiana-twist.

Also try my Hooter’s medium Buffalo wings made with ingredients purchased at the restaurant. They’re the real deal!

Copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Thai Curry Wings

The first time I tried the Buffalo Wild Wings Thai Curry Wings at Buffalo Wild Wings I was blown away. It was in West Chester, Ohio, and I remember it like it was yesterday because I absolutely loved the combination of coconut, curry and just a bit of heat. I could’ve just licked the sauce off the wings, but then we were in a public place and that would’ve been awkward. Ever since I’ve been looking for a copycat of BW3’s sauce, and here it is. Now I can lick the sauce off the wings in the privacy of my own home with this copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Thai curry wings!

One Fantastically Good Sauce

I found the Shan chicken white karahi mix in the Pakistani section of our international supermarket. If you can’t find it nearby you can always order it online. It’s what makes this copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Thai Curry wings so special.

I could not find Thai chile peppers in our supermarket, so I had to go to plan B. I picked up a few packages of dried cayenne peppers, reconstituted them, and chopped them up. It was a great save.

For the sauce (start cooking when you start the wings)

  • Mince the peppers and then pound in a mortar and pestle or grind into a paste using the side of a knife blade. You want the peppers to form a paste.
  • Place the peppers and remaining ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir until the ingredients are combined.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, while the wings are cooking. You want the sauce to thicken slightly.
  • NOTE: I could not find Thai peppers at our grocery store. You can substitute jalapenos or seranos for more heat. Preferably you want to use a red pepper. I bought dried cayenne peppers, which I then reconstituted in hot water for 1 hour. I then removed the seeds and minced the peppers into a paste.

Copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic Wings

I love any restaurant, chain or not, that serves chicken wings. I have my favorites for sure, and Buffalo Wild Wings is one of them. BW3s Parmesan garlic wings are to die for. It’s creamy, a little nutty thanks to the Parmesan cheese, and definitely packed with garlic. This copycat of the Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan garlic wings is spot-on crazy good. I absolutely could not stop eating it. So much so that I made wings covered in the Parmesan garlic sauce two days in a row. Is that wrong?

Cheesy Garlicky Yummy

I say without hesitation that you should double the amount of sauce. It’s not so much that you need to drown the wings in it, no. It’s because it’s good on sandwiches and subs too. Crazy garlicky good.

  • Add the remaining ingredients.
  • Pulse a few times until smooth and the garlic has been chopped.

Notes

Note that the sauce should be made the day before you make the wings so it has time to ‘get happy’.
