Today we have one more dish for hot lovers – Buffalo wings.

As you can figure from the name, this dish’s from Buffalo city, state New York. According to one version, for the first time, it was cooked in the Anchor Bar in 1964.

The hostess was looking for a fast and easy-to-prepare snack, she could offer her clients. She got the idea to serve battered chicken wings (speaking of which, earlier they were used only for broth) in the hot sauce based on cayenne pepper. So, considering how popular these hot crusty wings are to this very day – she’s nailed it.

As I’ve said before, the original recipe includes battering, but we’ll do it another way and bake them. Meanwhile, we’ll try to keep them originally crusty.

Also, I want to add a few words about a sauce. In most recipes as a sauce is used Frank’s RedHot, but it can be challenging to find it. In case you couldn’t find it, replace with Thai Sriracha and add 1 extra tbsp of sugar. If you couldn’t find it either, use any other vinegar-based hot sauce.

How to Make Roasted Buffalo Wings: Step-by-Step Instructions 🔪

STEP 1. PREPARE THE WINGS AND DRY THEM.

Firstly, warm up the oven to 120 degrees. Bottom-top mode.

You could buy chicken wings (2 kg ) with 2 or 3 phalanxes. If there’s 3 of them, cut off the smallest one and put aside. You can use it, for example, when cooking broth, but in this recipe, you don’t need it.

On two phalanx wings find the joint and with a rapid move, cut in half.

When all the wings are ready, dry them. You can do it in 2 ways: 1) place on the grate (but not close together, space is needed for good air circulation) and put to the fridge overnight 2) dry using paper towels.

I chose the second option.

Dry wings place into the bag.
