Boneless CHICKEN Wings

We love delicious appetizers and all the reasons to get together and enjoy them. It may be a holiday, a football game, or a simple party!

One we especially love is Boneless Buffalo Wings. They are one of my favorite recipes, and a crowd favorite as well. They are the perfect size for dipping and popping right into your mouth!

Boneless = winning (although we still love the bone-in wings too)!

You will love the spicy and sweet flavor of these easy Buffalo Chicken Wings. The ingredients are simple and come together perfectly.

Plus, they are fried, and who doesn’t love fried chicken? But beware – they’re addicting!

How to coat Boneless Buffalo Wings.

How to Make Boneless Buffalo Wings

PREP. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375°F (190°C).

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk.

COAT. Dip and coat each piece of chicken in the egg mixture. Then roll in the flour to coat. Repeat steps so that each piece of chicken is double coated. Refrigerate breaded chicken for at least 20 minutes.

FRY. In batches, fry chicken in hot oil until browned. About 5-6 minutes.

SAUCE. Heat hot sauce in a skillet, add fried chicken pieces and toss to coat. Serve warm with a favorite dipping sauce like Ranch Dressing.

Alternative cooking methods

These are definitely a healthier version of Boneless Buffalo Wings which is a great option for people who are trying to eat healthier or can’t have fried foods.

BAKE. Heat your oven to 375°F. Bake the chicken for 15-20 minutes or until it has an internal temperature of 165°F.

AIR FRY. Prepare the wings as directed in the recipe. Spray the basket and the wing pieces with olive oil spray. Fry them in a single layer at 370°F for 5 minutes, then flip over and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165°F.

If you’re bringing these to a party or making them for guests, you could make them half fried and half baked. That way people can choose between the two! Both are SUPER delicious options.

Recipe tips + variations

Cut of chicken. Traditional Buffalo Wings are actually the drumlet and flat sections of a chicken wing. They can be breaded or treated with a dry rub, baked or fried, or smothered in sauce. They are a favorite for sure.

A boneless wing is exactly what it sounds like. All the classic flavors, but without the bones. Cut a boneless skinless chicken breast into bite-sized cubes. Coat the chicken nuggets and fry them up. 

Adjust the heat. One reason people love Buffalo Wings is because of the hot sauce, this is also a reason some people shy away from them.

  • For a more mild sauce: mix the buffalo sauce with some melted butter to temper the heat.
  • For an even hotter sauce: add in some red pepper flakes. 

Oil. There are several oils with a high smoking point that you can use. I typically choose vegetable oil. Peanut oil, canola oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, and corn oil are other options.

Change the sauce. Use your sauce of choice to make these how you like them.

Serving suggestions. We love to serve them with Homemade Ranch Dressing or blue cheese dressings along with celery and carrots.

Storing Info

Make ahead of time. Coat the wings the day before and keep them covered in the fridge until you’re ready to fry. You can also store the breaded wings in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

STORE. Leftover wings can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat them in the microwave or in the oven.

You can also eat Boneless Buffalo Wings cold. I particularly like using leftover boneless wings on top of salads.

      1. I usually don’t have enough leftover to freeze! 😉 But you could freeze them. I’d suggest letting them cool down all the the way, then pack in an airtight container making sure none of them overlap. Once they have frozen you can stack them. You’ll have to let us know how they turn out after reheating!

    Another family favorite. Weve been making wings for a long time. This version is just as good and not complicated to make. Even the little kids like them. Who doesnt like something you can dip into ranch dressing?

  4. I have been looking for a recipe for buffalo wings for a long time and now I got to the site. This recipe is one of the most simple and delicious that I have seen. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  5. Question – I don’t see egg(s) mentioned in the ingredients but included in the instructions.

    IF so, is it just one egg? Thanks ?

  6. 5 stars
    These wings have the perfect amount of heat. Love that they are boneless too! These get devoured EVERY TIME I make them.

  7. My son has an egg allergy. For the breading do you think I could substitute buttermilk for the egg/milk part? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    I couldn’t get these out of the fryer fast enough. Family loved them. Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!! #ChickenWingRecipes #Food #YummyAppetizers #bonelesschicken

    1. Yes you definitely can! You could probably play around with temperatures and times (or look for some ideas online) but I imagine 375 for about 15 minutes would work well.

  9. Love this recipe…can these be fried ahead of time and reheated when ready to eat? I’m trying to plan ahead and save time. Any recommendations?
