Buffalo wings recipe was given to me many years ago that feeds just 4 people. You will need 8 wings to cut up into pieces discarding the tips. The wings are baked first with a little salt, oil and flour. The sauce is made from butter, hot sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic and vinegar. It is easy to make and the sauce is inexpensive. If feeding more people or you just love to pig out on buffalo wings then the recipe can be doubled or tripled. I make the sauce mild for me and let the others add as much hot sauce as they like to theirs. To do this I just make a double recipe of sauce and serve some in small bowls to they can adjust it to their taste. Everyone then can really enjoy the treat.
I remember when chicken wings were very cheap and I would buy them to make chicken soup. Because of this recipe they are now too expensive to use in soup. I actually sometimes buy small chicken legs to make buffalo wings. I know that is cheating but the sauce tastes good even on other parts of the chicken. You can serve the sauce over chicken nuggets to dip in ranch or blue cheese dressing. Even on a tight budget you can still enjoy the flavor of buffalo sauce with this sauce recipe. So tuck this recipe into your recipe box for game night and the holidays.
- 16 wing segments
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup of flour to dreg the wings
- 1/2 stick butter
- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tsp hot sauce or to taste
Preheat oven 375 degrees. Place a sheet of foil on a sheet pan to bake the wings.
Cut wings in segments buy cutting through the joints. Discard the wing tips. Rinse and pat dry. Place in bowl and toss with oil. Dreg wings in flour and arrange on sheet pan. Sprinkle salt on wings before placing in oven.
Bake for 25 minutes and turn wings over to bake for another 25 minutes. This depends on your oven as to how long you have to bake them. I give them a quick spray of vegetable oil to help brown them up.
In the mean time make the sauce. In a small sauce pan melt butter over low heat. Add other ingredients and stir. Keep warm.
When wings are finished baking remove from sheet pan and place in bowl. Toss with wing sauce until all the pieces are coated.
Note: You can make additional sauce to serve with a hot sauce bottle for those who like their wings really spicy.
