This mouth-wateringly appetising buffalo chicken wings recipe is simple, easy to make and uses our popular FRANK'S RedHot® buffalo wings sauce to create the ultimate buffalo wings. Tasty and spicy they are the embodiment of snack food perfect for any occasion whether you’re hosting a Superbowl Party, a Halloween feast or simply crave some wings.
The beauty of buffalo wings is that they are very versatile, easy to prepare and a great addition to any party or sporting event and work perfectly as a shareable snack at any time of day. As a bonus they can also either be baked in the oven or fried in oil depending on your preferences.
To bake, pre heat your oven to 200°C (392°F, gas mark 6), spread your wings evenly across an oven proof baking tray or dish. Once spread out pop the tray onto the middle shelf of the oven for 35-40 minutes until crispy & golden.
To fry, deep fry the chicken wings at 180°C (350°F) for 12 minutes or until cooked and crispy. Make sure to use a pot or pan, deep enough to take the chicken and the oil with plenty of room to spare to make sure the oil doesn’t bubble over. Once cooked drain your crispy wings on kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil. If you prefer to fry your buffalo wings, make sure to use a flavourless vegetable oil as more flavourful oils can impose unwanted flavour on the chicken.
While your chicken wings are cooking melt your unsalted butter on a low to medium heat and stir occasionally to make sure the butter doesn’t burn.
Once the butter has melted turn the hob to a low heat and add the FRANK'S RedHot® buffalo wings sauce and mix.
Using a large bowl toss the crispy wings and sauce together until the wings are fully coated. If you do not have a bowl large enough to hold the sauce and the wings, toss together in batches until all wings are fully coated.
Once the chicken wings are completely coated serve immediately.
These wings go perfectly with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks. The blue cheese dressing helps break through the spiciness of the buffalo sauce adds extra depth of flavour, whereas the celery sticks also cut through the spice and adds extra crunch and freshness to the meal.
