Buffalo chicken wings
This extremely popular creation came out of a New York restaurant in the 60’s by Teressa Bellissimo, who covered them in her own special sauce and served them with a side of celery and blue cheese. Since then, Buffalo wings have become the quintessential game day food in the United States served at bars, restaurants or ordered as take out.
Of COURSE this recipe includes serving them in a Blue Cheese Dressing (or Ranch dressing).
These wings were not only a hit at the dinner table, they were ordered again the next day! Just when I thought this little experiment wouldn’t be well received!
How to make crispy chicken wings
The magic ingredient to crispy wings without a lot of oil is aluminium free baking powder. It may sounds unappealing, but coating chicken wings in seasoned baking powder is what makes the skin super crispy. You won’t taste it in the end results, so long as you use aluminium-free. To be clear, make sure you use baking powder, NOT baking soda, because there is a big difference!
You’re going to pimp yours up with added flavours:
- Garlic powder
- You an also add a dash of Cayenne pepper.
