Make Your Own Buffalo Chicken Wings [RECIPE]
I absolutely love chicken wings, but they’re pretty expensive so I wanted to see if I could make my own wings and these weren’t only cheaper than take-out wings, but tasted better than most wings I’ve ever had!
- 2 cups canola oil
- 2 pounds chicken wings
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Hot Sauce
- 2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Fry the wings in the oil until they are golden. Or you can do what I did and use a deep fryer. I popped them in at 350 for 13 minutes and they were nice and crispy. Remove them to a plate covered with a couple of layers of paper towels to drain the oil. Then place them in a large bowl. In a small saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat.
How much hot sauce you add depends on how hot you like your wings and the heat of the sauce. There is no way I can tell you how much to add. It is a personal preference. Always start with less and add more if it isn’t hot enough. For 2 tablespoons of butter, I would start with 2 tablespoons of hot sauce for mild and go from there. A 2 to 1 ration of hot sauce to butter is HOT a 3 to 1 ratio is EXTREME in my opinion. But let your taste buds be the judge. Add the sauce to the wings in the bowl and toss together with kitchen tongs.
