Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe

Updated on July 1, 2015

Before the advent of the Buffalo wings, the wings in the chicken were supposed to be useless and only used for making soups and chicken stock. But with the advent of the buffalo chicken the wings of chicken are not considered as waste but as delicacy. No one exactly knows how this recipe came to us but it is supposed that it was first made in Anchor Bar in Buffalo, USA. So it is supposed to be an authentic American recipe. The story behind this dish is that the owner of Anchor bar Mrs. Teresa Bellissimo’s son brought some of his friend very late in night and asked her to feed all of them. Since it was very late in night and she only had chicken wings left so she fried them and dipped in buttery sauce. Then she served them with blue cheese and celery. All the friends of his son liked the wings very much and rest is history.

This recipe became so much famous that the 29 July has been set as the Chicken wing day by the city of Buffalo. Last year the owners of Anchor Bar served over 75,000 pounds of Buffalo wings on this day. This recipe has become so famous that others have also copied it and now it is also available commercially. Then there was another restaurant with name of Wings and Things which also claimed it to be their original recipe with the name of hot wings , though their recipe is little different and they use spicy mambo sauce instead of hot Chile sauce. Soon the dish became so famous across USA that nearly any restaurant worth its name stated to make its own kind of chicken wings. Most came up with their own recipe and flavors but none was as successful as the original Buffalo wings

Ingredients:

  1. Chicken Wings: 18.
  2. All Purpose Floor: 1 Cup.
  3. Unsalted butter: 6 Tbsp
  4. Cayenne Pepper: ¼ Tsp.

Method:

  1. Divide the chicken wings in two parts one flat and other drum so we have 36 parts in all.

  3. Take a large bowl and put wings in the bowl.
  4. Add oil and 1 Tsp of salt and mix well.
  5. Now put the chicken pieces in the plastic bag and add flour.
  6. Shake it good so the flour covers the chicken pieces evenly.
  7. Now remove the wings from the bag and shake off excess flour.
  8. Take a baking pan and line it with foil.
  9. Put some oil on the foil so all of the foil has a slight covering of oil on it.
  10. Put the chicken wings on the foil, spreading out evenly and do not over crowd. Can use more than one pan if you have smaller pans or can make in two or three shifts.
  11. Put the pan in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  12. Take out the pan and turn over the chicken pieces.
  13. Put the pan back in oven and bake for 20 minutes more at 425F.
  14. Now the wings would be cooked thoroughly and browned.
  15. While the chicken wings are baked, take all the remaining ingredients in a pan including ¼ tsp of salt left in a pan and mix them well.
  16. Now put the pan on the low heat and let it simmer, stirring occasionally.
  17. Now take the pan off the heat.
  18. Now when wings are cooked, transfer them to a large mixing bowl and pour this sauce on them.
  19. Mix well with help of spatula making sure all sides of chicken wings are coated with the sauce.
