Are you ready for an outside-the-box chicken wing that will impress anyone and is truly next level? What if we had fried wings, wrapped in bacon, deep fried again, tossed in Buffalo seasoning, then INJECTED with hot sauce . . . on the INSIDE of the wing?!?

There are no measurements on this recipe - I did small batch but you can make as many wings as you want . . . you just have to put in the time. It's simple:

  • Chicken Wings (split)
  • Bacon
  • Buffalo Popcorn Seasoning
  • Buffalo Wing Sauce

These are relatively easy wings to make, but the several stages ensure there is flavour every step of the way as you eat these wings:

  1. Deep fry chicken wings for approx 10 minutes or until golden
  2. Wrap a slice of bacon around each wing, tucking in the ends so it doesn't unwravel
  3. Deep fry bacon wrapped wing until bacon is crispy
  4. Transfer wings to a bowl and generously season with Buffalo Popcorn Seasoning.
  5. Prepare Buffalo sauce (whether you make your own or use store bought) served either warm or room temperature, fill marinade injector. Carefully inject into each wing, being careful to not hit the bone. Slowly inject and don't put in too much - wing will slightly swell. Some will spill out as you remove the injector, that is ok
  6. Enjoy!   CAUTION - when you go to serve, the sauce will heat up and will squirt if not careful.

Look at this deep fried, bacon wrapped chicken wing. It's glorious even before you put in the sauce.

I don't get to use a marinade injector very often, but this is the best use I've found. Make sure your Buffalo sauce is thin - if it's too thick it won't pass through the needle.

I just can't stop admiring these wings. Look at them, they are beautiful. You may be asking, why inject the wing with sauce instead of tossing them in sauce? You've got a crispy skin chicken wing, but outside of that is the meat, the crispy bacon. Outside of that you have that Buffalo seasoning giving another layer of flavour. You toss that in sauce and you lose the crispiness and seasoning. Put it inside with the most boring part of the wing (the meat) and you get to have EVERYTHING you want in the wing.

You really do have to warn your guests about these wings because when you bite into them, that hot sauce is going to burst out, and it can be hot, and extra messing. But it's like this hidden jewel, or like the inside of Cream Egg. It's a flavour bomb, literally. That's the analogy I want here. Flavour bomb!

I added some of my Bacon Blue Cheese and it paired super well with it, adding that creaming tangy dressing. If adding bacon and injected hot sauce into a chicken wing isn't next level, I don't know what is.
