Wow. These boneless Buffalo wings aren’t just sorta good. They’re crazy good. It’s embarrassing how many I devoured, so let’s just say I had more than two. The key to these is double-dredging them and letting the mixture set for 20 minutes before frying. The coating is fantastic. It’s light, not heavy, with just a little heat kick from the cayenne.free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
