Buffalo wings are a popular American appetizer known for their spicy and tangy flavor. They are typically made with deep-fried chicken wings coated in a hot sauce mixture and served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing. Here’s a simple recipe to make classic Buffalo wings at home:

Ingredients:

For the wings:

  • 2 to 3 pounds chicken wings, separated into drumettes and flats
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Buffalo sauce:

  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot or your favorite hot sauce)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust for spiciness)

For serving:

  • Celery sticks
  • Blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your deep fryer or a large pot filled with vegetable oil to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels and season them with salt and pepper.
  3. In batches, carefully place the chicken wings into the hot oil, and fry them for about 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Make sure not to overcrowd the fryer or pot.
  4. Once the wings are cooked, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil, allowing any excess oil to drain.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the hot sauce, melted butter, white vinegar, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Mix well to create the Buffalo sauce.
  6. Add the fried chicken wings to the bowl of Buffalo sauce, and toss them until they are evenly coated with the sauce.
