The Original Buffalo Chicken Wings recipe from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo New York. Deep fried chicken wings coated in buttery hot sauce mixture and served with a side of blue cheese dressing.
Ingredients
  • 6-8 Pieces whole Chicken Wings
  • 4-6 Cups Oil (I used Canola oil), for frying
  • Salt
  • Pepper, Black, freshly ground
Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp Margarine
  • 4 Tbsp Frank's Original Hot Sauce
Instructions
  1. Start by pre-heating your oven to 400 degrees so it's ready when your first batch of wings are done.
  2. Prepare your deep fryer or pan for the chicken wings. You'll need it to be set for 375 degrees and ALWAYS make sure you leave enough room for the chicken and expect the oil to bubble a bit. BE VERY CAREFUL and give yourself more room than you may think you'll need.
  3. Wash the chicken and cut it into three pieces at each joint. You can toss the very tip of the wing or use it for making broth.
  4. Pat the chicken completely dry (you can use paper towels or a regular towel, just be sure to throw it into the washer immediately so you don't accidentally whip your hands with it) and place on a single layer in a plate or bowl.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Continue to cut, layer and season the chicken until it's all done.
  7. Check to be sure your oil is ready at 375 degrees
  8. Place the drumettes (the part of the wings that look like mini-drumsticks) into the oil first and cook for about 2 minutes.
  9. Move the chicken around to keep them separated and add in the rest of the pieces of wings. If you're doing more than 6-8 whole wings, do them in batches, depending on the size of your fryer. If you put too many in at one time, you'll drop the temperature of the oil too much. It should drop to about 350 if done correctly.
  10. Cook for an additional 13 minutes (15 minutes total) or until the bubbling slows considerably.
  11. While the wings are cooking, prepare your sauce.
  12. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, add in the margarine and hot sauce. Remember your ratio's (margarine:hot sauce) for hot (1:3), medium(1:1) and mild (3:1).
  13. Once the margarine is melted, simmer over a medium to medium-low heat until the chicken wings are done (approximately 10-15 minutes).
  14. Remove the wings from the fryer and cool in a single layer on a platter covered in paper towels and let drain for about 2 minutes.
  15. Place the wings into a large bowl and pour the sauce over the top.
  16. Stir with a spoon (If you're adventurous, you can try tossing them like you would a frying pan full of sautéed veggies) until completely coated with sauce.
  17. Place on a baking sheet in a single layer and place on the middle rack in the oven.
  18. Bake at 400 degrees for 4 minutes.
  19. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with cool celery and a side of blue cheese dressing.
