Today I’m going to show you how to make deliciously tangy hot Buffalo wings. As the name suggests, this recipe owes its name to Buffalo, New York where it was first conceived and has now grown to become a favourite of millions across the world. Chicken wings are coated in a sweet and sauce, deep fried and then served with blue cheese dressing and some celery sticks. Absolute perfection and perfect for when you’re entertaining. Just whip up a batch the morning of and pop ‘em in the deep fryer right as your guests start to arrive. You can’t go wrong with this and it’s an absolute hit at every party. Here are the ingredients for a dozen or so hot wings.

For the wings:
- 12 chicken wings
- Oil for deep frying
For the sauce:
- One and a half tablespoon of butter
- 24 oz. Frank’s Hot Sauce (you can use any hot sauce you like)
- 1 small bottle of Tabasco (depending on how hot you want it; you don’t have to use the entire bottle)
- A pinch of garlic powder
- A tablespoon or Worcestershire sauce
- A tablespoon of soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons of ketchup
- Corn starchslurry (about 1 tsp. of corn starch dissolved in half a cup of cold water)
- Heat a large saucepan on medium-low and melt one and a half tablespoon of butter in it
- Now add the hot sauce, Tabasco, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and ketchup and simmer for about twenty-five minutes.
- Next, thicken this concoction with the corn starch slurry and stir. The starch is meant to thicken the sauce.
- Once thickened, turn off the heat and let the mixture cool.
- Take about a dozen wings, cut them into their three respective sections and toss out the tips. Fry what you have left in a deep fryer until golden brown and crispy. Keep aside.
- Now transfer the wings to a big bowl and pour the sauce all over the wings, tossing them around so that the wings are well coated.
- Serve with a side of celery and blue cheese dip.
