Buffalo Chicken Wings

By Angelika Hanna

This easy and quick recipe is a specialty of Buffalo, New York state. It is simple and tasty and only takes just a little over 30 min to prepare. Buffalo wings are an excellent choice for many occasions: As a lunch main dish or a meaty part of dinner, a snack, a bring-along for a potluck, or any party. Good news is that you don’t need a BBQ grill. It’s great for people who live in a condo or apartment and don’t have an outdoor grill.

  • 8 chicken wings
  • 1 quart vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp Buffalo sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp distilled white vinegar


  1. Dry your wings well with paper towels. (It is important that the wings are dry for a crispy outcome.)
  2. Heat 3-inches of oil in a frying pan to 375 degrees Fahrenheit on food thermometer.
  3. In a separate small frying pan, combine Buffalo sauce, butter, and vinegar. Warm over low heat until the butter is melted.
  4. Taste for spicy-ness. If you like it less spicy, add more butter or a splash of water. For more spicy-ness, add more Buffalo sauce.
  5. Fry your wings unseasoned for 12-15 min. (Divide your wings into two batches. Don’t crowd them in your frying pan for the oil to stay hot.)
  6. When wings are fried crispy, toss them in a bowl to coat with the warm Buffalo sauce.

I served my wings with Tuscan style roasted potatoes.
