Buffalo Chicken Wings
Are you ready for some…
Have ya heard?
I am from Buffalo, New York
I am very proud to call Buffalo home.
Buffalo gets knocked down continuously for
Blah, blah, blah…
Buffalo has so much to offer…
Have you ever walked down Elmwood Avenue after
Rick and I fell in love in Buffalo and each earned our
How about visiting the Albright Knox Art Gallery?
Niagara Falls is 20 minutes away and one of my favorite places to share with my young girls when we visit.
Buffalo people never give up,
On that note…
Rick and I both served Buffalo wings at a tavern in Buffalo. I was student teaching at the time, but worked there on Saturday afternoons and the wings were phenomenal.
This will serve 4-6,
One big 4 lb. bag of frozen wings from the freezer section
48 oz. Canola Oil (less will be fine)
1/4 C. butter (1/2 stick)
12 oz. Frank’s Hot Sauce
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste)
1 teaspoon chili powder
salt & pepper to taste
Blue Cheese Dressing
Carrots & Celery
Heat oil in a large pot to decrease mess.

While waiting…make your sauce. Don’t slack off like Dude did.

Add Frank’s Hot Sauce, garlic salt,
cayenne pepper, chili powder, and S & P.
Stir well and let it simmer lightly for 10 minutes.

When the wings are very crispy and brown,
Finish cooking all of your wings and turn off that oil.
Put 1/2 of your wings while still hot,
Remember…the more sauce you use, the hotter they will be.
I prefer mine medium to mild, so I used very little sauce.
Serve them up baby…
Don’t forget a cold beer or root beer on the side!
(I’m heading to the fridge right now for the leftover wings-they were so good!)
