I found a knock-off recipe for Hooter’s fried chicken wings a few weeks ago. Now, if you’ve ever had them, you know Hooter’s wings are absolutely delicious! This is the one food that I crave at least twice a week and it pains me that I can no longer have them.

Unfortunately, people suffering from gluten intolerance can’t just run out to the nearest Hooters and order a plate of wings. And, of course, many of you may not live anywhere near a Hooter’s restaurant to begin with. If you’ve never had these wings you don’t know what you’re missing! For those of you who have been searching for a great gluten free fried chicken wings recipe, you have finally find it!


This recipe is designed to prepare 10-14 wings.

Flour Mix:
1/2 c. flour replacement mix
1/4 t. paprika
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. salt

Sauce:
1/4 c. butter (1/2 stick)
1/4 c. hot sauce
dash of black pepper
dash of garlic powder

10-14 wings

Put the flour mix in a gallon zip lock bag. Place up to 4 wings in the bag at once and shake to coat with flour. Once coated, shake the excess off and place in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 minutes (this helps the flour mix stick to the chicken and is VERY important).

Deep fry the wings at 360 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Let the grease drained from the fried wings then coat with sauce. Put fried wings in the over at 215 degrees to keep them warm until all wings are done. While you’re frying the last batch of wings, prepare the sauce over low to medium heat and stir until well blended.

NOTE: My only complaint about Hooter’s wings is that they are sometimes very greasy. Making these at home allows you to control how much grease remains. Rather than putting the wings in a container with the sauce and shaking it to coat them completely, I simply brush on the sauce so that each wing is covered but there is no excess dripping.

These wings taste EXACTLY like the ones at Hooter’s only they’re much cheaper and gluten free! Even your gluten eating friends will thank you and they’ll never know the difference!
