Servings 4
  • 1 pot
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • baking sheet
For the wings
  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
For the sauce
  • ¾ cup BBQ sauce
  • ¼ cup red hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tbsp spicy garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • Mix the all-purpose flour, salt, pepper, and paprika together in a medium bowl. Alternatively, you can put all of the ingredients in a zip-lock bag and turn it over several times to mix the ingredients together.
  • Toss the wings and shake until they’re nicely coated in flour. Then shake off the excess flour from the chicken wings and let them sit in the fridge for about half an hour.
  • While the wings are resting, prepare your Hooters Daytona Beach Sauce. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a pan and bring to simmer over medium heat. Bring the Daytona Beach Sauce to boil and lower the heat to simmer a little more for it to thicken. It takes about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Preheat the grill to 375 °F and grill your wings until golden brown. If you don’t have a grill, bake the chicken wings in the oven. Just spray a large baking sheet with olive oil and bake your wings for about 15 minutes at 375°F. Then turn them over and bake for another 20 minutes.
  • The final and most enjoyable step: toss the wings in the Hooters Daytona Beach Sauce until they are generously coated.
    Serve immediately for the best wings experience. Alternatively, use a brush to brush the Daytona Beach Sauce onto al sides of the wings, and then return them to the oven to broil for about 5minutes.
    This will give them a glazed look. Serve your original Hooters-style wings with a ranch dressing, cheddar cheese, or just naturally. The Daytona Beach Sauce will give them enough flavors to please the crowd.
