We Love Buffalo Chicken Wings!

It's hard to imagine that the original Buffalo Chicken Wings didn't exist to most of the U.S. populace until the early 1980's.

According to the most well known story, the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY created a chicken wings recipe as starter snack. I'm so glad they did because it is one of my family's favorite starter snack, especially during football games. In our opinion, Wings also help make a pizza dinner complete.

Granted, the recipe below is not the original deep fried version, but it is the best oven fried wing recipe attempted.

Time to Cook Chicken Wings

First a Question...

Have You Ever had Chicken Wings Cooked at Home?

Don't Forget Celery Sticks and Carrots, because Diet Science Concludes...

1 celery stick or carrot negates the calories of 1 chicken wing.

Proven #Fact

We are Not Using a Deep Fat Fryer, so...

We need to use specially selected ingredients to give these wings the desired crispness and flavor.

  • Crispness The use of a baking powder substitution consisting of a mixture of cream of tartar, baking soda, and corn starch uses a reaction to lend a wonderful and surprising crispness to these wings. Baking powder by itself is used in some baked wing recipes, but I am one of those people who has a palate that finds the aluminum sulfate tastes very bitter.
  • Flavor Since deep frying also intensifies flavoring, the additions of onion and garlic powders helps to give this recipe that added flavor without a tremendous amount of calories.

Before We Start Cooking, I must Confess...

This recipe uses bottled Original Anchor Bar Wing sauce.

Part of the reason for this is convenience.

The other is truly great flavor. The addition of melted butter is the closest thing to our favorite bar wings. Without butter, it just isn't the same. The original recipe of just a hot sauce like Frank's Red Hot Original sauce with butter no longer satisfies us like it once did.
