Boneless Buffalo Wings


Are you ready for some FREEKZONE!!!

Yes? Well, that is fortuitous indeed. Freekzone came over after a long day and made me his special boneless buffalo wings. They were just what I needed: crunchy, spicy, proteiny, fast, and easy. In fact, after his demonstration and my taste-test, I might say that boneless buffalo wings are the world’s premier drunk person food!

Want to know what the secret is? No, not the secret to eternal life and hapiness and free money from the universe. I mean the secret to the extra-crispy crust on the wings. Give up? It’s Doritos! Doritos-crusted chicken! Or you could use Cheetos. Or Fritos. Anything that rhymes with “Itos” would work. Tostitos. You get the picture. But we were fortunate enough to have genuine 1970’s style taco-flavored Doritos. And they really did the trick. I tell you whut.

Extra crispy, fried chicken breast pieces coated in traditional Buffalo wing sauce

  • Yield: 4-6 1x


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup finely crushed Doritos (or another similar junk food item)
  • Oil for frying (about a 1/2 inch deep in your skillet)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s RedHot


  1. Cut the chicken into 12-16 equal-sized pieces, about the same size as a chicken wing (1″x2″).
  2. Beat the eggs well.
  3. Combine the flour, cornmeal, and chips in a large bowl.
  4. Heat the oil to 350 F.
  5. Dredge the chicken in the dry mix, then the egg, then the dry mix again and set aside on a plate until all are coated.
  6. Fry 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and crispy. Check that they are cooked through by cutting one in half.
  7. Drain on a metal rack while you get the sauce ready.
  8. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter and Frank’s. Toss the hot chicken pieces in the sauce until coated.
  9. Serve at once with celery stalks and blue cheese dressing.

    So happy to see the return of Freakzone!! Those buffalo wings looked really good.

    • Hilah on February 25, 2012 at 8:50 am

      Yay! I’m so glad everyone likes FreekZone as much as I do! 🙂

  3. Caleb on February 25, 2012 at 2:45 am

    Oops! I mean Freekzone!

  4. olivia on February 25, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    I thinks we are going to give these a try next weekend. I love your site. Thanks for making your videos. 🙂

    • Hilah on February 25, 2012 at 7:18 pm

      Great, Olivia! These are so easy and delicious I’m sure your family will love them. Thanks for trying the recipes and giving me feedback! 🙂

  5. Ken on February 26, 2012 at 7:22 am

    FREAKZONE!!!! So glad to see his return! How do you think this recipe would do if I baked the boneless wings? I’m a hige fan of freakzone not frying.

    • Hilah on February 26, 2012 at 5:24 pm

      I think that would work great! I haven’t tried it but I imagine it would work best if you sprayed them with a little oil and then baked on a rack on a pan so that air can circulate around them. Let me know if you try it and how it works!

  6. Ken on February 26, 2012 at 7:24 am

    Huge not hige, that’s what I get for using my phone

  7. tscarborough on February 26, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Those look seriously good.

    • Hilah on February 27, 2012 at 12:13 pm

      Dude. I cannot tell a lie. They are the BOMB.

  8. MONICA on February 29, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Could we use something else or leave our Corn Meal?

    • Hilah on February 29, 2012 at 12:38 pm

      Hi Monica! You could just use 1 cup of flour instead of the flour and cornmeal.

  9. olivia on March 15, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    I made these for dinner tonight and they were a big hit. My husband and son couldn’t get enough. I will be making these for every party I am invited to.

    • Hilah on March 16, 2012 at 9:04 am

      Great to hear, Olivia! I’m glad you’ve got your go-to party contribution! It’s always good to have a few recipes you can count on that everyone likes.

  10. Matthew on March 18, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    Hi Hilah!
    I recently discovered your website and these boneless wings were one of the first recipes I tried. They are the Bomb!!! Very easy to make, inexpensive, and everyone enjoyed. Thanks for having a great site!!!

    • Hilah on March 19, 2012 at 8:15 am

      Hello Matthew! I’m so happy you found my site! And really extra happy you loved the recipe. Thanks for writing to tell me about it. Let me know how your other cooking experiments turn out! 🙂

  11. Olivia3381 on March 21, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Yes I made these again!!! This time we put them on a salad and it was a perfect fit together.

    • Hilah on March 22, 2012 at 8:00 am

      Oh, awesome idea! I’ll have to try that, too. 🙂

  12. Val on July 18, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Now that Ive successfully conquered Chic-Fil-Gay this will be the recipe I try next! I love boneless wings and these look amazing!

    • Hilah on July 18, 2012 at 7:18 pm

      They are! They are amazing! I think you will love these.

  13. Garrett33 on July 30, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    just found your site and I love the way you cook, you have so much fun and it is a pleasure to watch. And everything you make looks incredible, looking forward to trying the wings!

    • Hilah on August 2, 2012 at 5:55 pm

      Thanks, Garrett! These really are amazing – who would have thought of Doritos! 😉

  14. chuck dorr on August 9, 2012 at 2:35 am

    Tried this recipe and wasn’t impressed with it at all. It was also time consuming. Why the Doritos were added was puzzling to me! I couldn’t taste the Doritos and that’s one reason I tried this recipe. All I could taste is the cornmeal. I didn’t use the Frank’s RedHot sauce because members in my family don’t like HOT! Plus I thought it would take away the taste of the Doritos, which as it turned out, I didn’t have to worry about that! I used honey to dip the chicken pieces, which made them taste better.
    I also made the Chick-Fil-A Copycat recipe and that was really good & I’ll keep that recipe to make again and again!

  15. Diana on January 19, 2013 at 4:20 am


    ps. Could I substitute the Red Hot sauce for Luisiana Hot Sauce? It’s my favorite hot sauce :p

    • Hilah on January 19, 2013 at 9:41 am

      YES!!! 🙂 I think Louisiana would work fine! Let me know how you like it that way. I like to be able to tell people options on the ingredients when I can.

  16. Kizz on March 25, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Thank you so much, I’m a brit that came to texas and fell in love with boneless wings! In Britain there are only two places that do boneless wings, TGI Fridays, and Hooters (we have one in the entirety of England) so i rarely get my fix, thanks to you i can finally make my own so thank you so much! also, im not keen on celery or blue cheese dip, so could you recommend any other accompaniments?

    • Hilah on March 26, 2013 at 12:37 pm

      Hey Kizz! Great news! Hope you like these even better than TGIF and Hooters. 🙂 You can dip them in Ranch dressing (do you have that over there?) as well. It’s a fine accompaniment.

      • kizz on March 26, 2013 at 4:20 pm

        we can get hold of it, but only in specialty american stores, its pretty rare. Also, does your book ship to the UK?

        • Hilah on March 27, 2013 at 10:18 am

          Yes, the book ships worldwide. 🙂 And the link posted for Ranch in a previous comment looks spot-on! Mine is similar, minus the sour cream and I add some dill weed. You know, I bet a Greek tsatsiki would be a great dip for them, too.

  17. Great Stone Face on March 26, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    Kizz, ranch dressing isn’t so difficult to make. You would need buttermilk, although Hilah recommends as a buttermilk substitute 1 cup milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice. See this recipe to make ranch dressing.

  18. Sean on August 5, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    I recently stumbled about your site/youtube channel and recently tried your baked chicken wing recipe..absolutely loved them and will be trying many more of your recipes. Keep up the good work !!

    • Hilah on August 6, 2013 at 8:44 am

      Awesome! Thanks, Sean. 🙂 Let me know how the other recipes turn out, too!

  19. Faith on November 6, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    I love love love all of your recipies. You crack me up and also make some kick ass food.

    • Hilah on November 6, 2013 at 8:22 pm

      Thanks, Faith! 🙂
