Buffalo Chicken Wings

If I was to choose one thing to be my snack food of choice, it would have to be chicken wings. I crave wings often. In our home I regularly make chicken wings and usually there is 2 or 3 sauces that we can choose to toss them in.

Without question, buffalo wings are my absolute favourite. I love buffalo sauce and a quick scan through my website will reveal that I have used buffalo flavour in many different dishes.

Buffalo is all about the hot sauce. I often use Frank’s RedHot Sauce, but really there are so many kinds of hot sauces that can work. Tabasco, Crystal and Texas Pete are a few others that I have used and they were all great as well! Just be aware that they all have different levels of heat, so you may want to adjust the amount of hot sauce depending on the kind you use.

Making buffalo sauce for chicken wings is very easy! Melt the butter in a saucepan, whisk in the hot sauce, ketchup, garlic salt and pepper. Let the sauce simmer for a little bit and that’s it! Trust me, you will love this sauce dripping all over the chicken wings.

I love dipping buffalo wings in either a blue cheese dip or ranch dip. There is something amazing about the combination of hot and spicy wings with a creamy dip. It just works. 

Here are recipes for both types of dip.

Preheat the oil to 350F.

The oil used for deep frying needs to have a high smoke point. Vegetable oil is the one that I usually use because chicken and other foods cook very well and it is fairly economical, since a lot of oil is used. Peanut oil is an excellent choice for deep frying, but it is a pricier option. Stay away from olive oil as it cannot be heated as high.

I dredge the chicken wings in some flour before they go in the hot oil. A light dusting of flour helps to create an extra crispy skin.

Deep fry the wings in small batches for about 8-10 minutes, or until they are cooked through.

  • Oh yummy ..absolutely love the look of these. Added them to my to try list.

  • Yum, I’ve always wanted to make my own wings! My husband loves boneless chicken wings so maybe I will try to make these for him with chicken tenders instead (not quite the same, I know…).

  • I love wings and these look so good!!!! I would totally have to make batches though as I am the only one who likes anything spicy in this house.
