Have you ever wondered why they call them “buffalo” wings?
The name buffalo comes from where they originated – a restaurant in Buffalo, New York. Can we talk about the sauce? It’s spicy, tangy, and good. The sauce makes these wings irresistible!
How to make hot fins:
This recipe is about how to fry hot wings. If you like the baked version, be sure to try our Roasted Buffalo Wings – just as delicious!
Oil. Get ready for oil heat. Add the oil to a heavy pot to about 2-3 inches high and heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil heats up, prepare the fried chicken.
dredge. Coat (dredge) all wings in flour, making sure to shake off excess.
saute. Add chicken to hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer cooked chicken to paper towels to drain.
Sauce. Now it’s buffalo hot sauce. Heat hot sauce and butter in a pan. Add Worcestershire sauce and mix everything. Pour the cooked chicken wings into the sauce. Make sure they are fully coated with the sauce!
Serve hot with ranch and your favorite dipping sauce. Please enjoy! !
Hot Wing Tips:
- Want super crispy wings? Be sure to cook them until golden brown. Don’t skip the part about letting them drain on paper towels. Paper towels will help absorb any extra moisture.
- Be sure to cook the chicken wings in batches. Don’t squeeze the pan. Cook a few at a time – or as many as you like.
- Serve these warm! Nothing beats fresh spicy chicken wings.
Store, Reheat + Serve
How to store hot fins? You can store leftover chicken wings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. But really, these are the best fresh after cooking!
How to reheat buffalo wings? Reheat in preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
What is food with wings? Ranch dressing is the only way to go with these spicy buffalo wings. It’s easy to make and tastes better than store bought – I promise! Cool creamy ranch with hot chicken wings is a great combination.
I also like to serve it with sliced celery and sliced carrots. It makes a crunchy and healthy side dish for buffalo wings.
We definitely love this classic dish. It’s a hit everywhere, and while they can be messy, they’re well worth it!
