Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe

I’m very thankful to a friend who gave me her Buffalo Wings recipe ala TGIFridays! I thought following a Buffalo Wings recipe is hard, and I have been searching online for a good recipe, but I was always doubtful and afraid that the one I will follow will fail to meet my expectations.

Luckily, a friend posted her home-cooked Buffalo Wings as her dinner in her timeline on Facebook. I really craved when I saw her post, normally I really don’t ask but this time, I
wanna take a shot and give it a try. So I asked her the recipe at the comment and she privately messaged me the Buffalo Wings recipe ala TGIFridays and shared some of her techniques in doing it.

Mis en place everything what you need. Thaw, wash and cut the chicken wing on desired portions. By the way, you can buy chicken wings at the market as uncut or by part. I bought
mine as a whole because I love every part of the chicken wings, from Drumette, Wingette to wing Tip.

mothers best hot sauceNote: Buffalo chicken wings taste relies on the brand of the hot sauce. She suggested me to use Mothers Best brand of Hot Sauce dahil ito na ang pinaka malapit sa lasa ng Buffalo Wings ng TGIF in terms of hotness.

Rustans gourmet to go Blue cheese dressingAs for the Blue Cheese dip or Bleu Cheese, she told me instead of making my own dip, she did suggest to buy the blue cheese dressing at Rustan’s Supermarket’s Gourmet to Go section.

Mas malapit ito sa taste ng dip ng TGIF rather than making your own dip; and it will not cost you much and less stress too! A minimum cost of a slice of blue cheese alone is
already the cost of the ready-made blue cheese dressing bought at Rustan’s Supermarket.

Now here’s the recipe…

Buffalo Wings Recipe

  • 400 grams of Whole Chicken wings approximately 4 pieces
  • 1 tbsp of rock salt
  • 2 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 4 kalamansi
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2-3 cups of cooking oil for deep frying
  • 25 ml of Mothers Best Hot sauce or half of the small bottle of 50 ml
  • Bunch of cut to serving, peeled cleaned celery stalks
  • 1 bottle of Blue Cheese dressing bought from Rustan’s Supermarket’s Gourmet to Go section

You’ll need:

  • Medium size container with lid
  • sauce pan for deep-frying
  • 4x5x2 baking pan
  • aluminum foil

Method:

  • Marinade washed cut chicken wings to salt and pepper (I add kalamansi or lemon to add more flavor) for 30 mins.
  • Prepare semi deep skillet or small frying pan enough for deep-frying chicken wings and heat oil.
  • Dredge the marinated chicken wings to flour. What I do is, I put the flour and the chicken wings inside the container with tight lid then shake. When done, shake off flour from the chicken.
  • Fry chicken wings till golden brown and drip oil to paper towel when done.
  • Prepare the container with lid and put the hot sauce. Put the hot fried chicken wings inside and shake them till chicken wings is covered with hot sauce.
  • Serve Buffalo chicken wings with Blue cheese dressing and celery stalks.

Method 2 for more crisper and juicy buffalo chicken wings

  • After shaking the buffalo chicken from the hot sauce, line and grease aluminum foil to a 5x5x2 pan and place the Fried Buffalo chicken wings inside.
  • Bake them to a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
  • Do while baking the Buffalo chicken wings, cut and peel the celery stalks and freeze them for at least 15 minutes for more cold crisper veggies.
  • Again, this time, you can adjust the hotness of the chicken wings. You can add honey to the hot sauce as for the second coating if you like a little sweetness on your hot buffalo chicken wings.

*Why apply second coating to the buffalo wings after baking? Chicken wings will look dry after baking that’s why you need to re-apply the hot sauce coating.

*Buffalo Chicken Wings is an appetizer, I made buffalo chicken wings as a main dish that’s why I usually order these at TGIF with rice.

Happy Eating!
