Only On Sundays: Buffalo Wings

In Food and Recipes on January 22, 2012 at 18:01

It’s Sunday today and it’s the only day of the week when the kitchen is totally free for us to experiment so we made buffalo wings!  It was my brother and his girlfriend’s idea, actually; I totally helped, though! Let me just say and not to brag, our hot-wings is the best one I’ve ever tasted so far!

Those hot-wings are so good, if I was a chicken I’d go cannibal and eat my own damn wing off. I don’t care, I’m just crazy like that — Marshall from How I Met Your Mother S02E14. Yes, that good, Marshall.

So to make your totally ‘if-you-were-a-chicken-you’d-go-cannibal-for’ buffalo wings:

Step 1: Prepare those chicken wings!

Cut your wings at the two joints and discard the tips. You could buy pre-cut wings in the market, though. But doing it yourself would ensure you’re getting more of the wings plus it’s cheaper.

Step 2: Put on the crisp!

This is up to you, though if you prefer crispy chicken wings.  It won’t affect much, it’s the sauce which carries this hot-wings recipe to total hot-wingness.

Set aside the wings and in a bowl, mix together flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk a couple of eggs. Okay, this is important if you want really crispy wings– the double dip. First, coat the wings evenly with the flour mixture. Turn to your whisked egg, dip your flour-coated wing in. THEN, turn back again to the flour mixture and coat the wing again with it. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Put enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep.

Step 3: It’s Sauce Time.

While your oil is waiting to heat up, in a saucepan, under low heat, combine half a block of butter, a regular bottle hot sauce (we used Jufran hot sauce and it tasted awesome. You could try using other brands but to me, Jufran is a-okay), cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and honey or brown sugar. Stir together and heat until butter melts and mixture is well blended. You would want the sauce to be fairly thick, thus honey is recommended. However, if thickness is not yet achieved, mix corn starch with water in a bowl and add it to your sauce. This will thicken it up. Remove from heat and reserve for serving.

Step 4: Fry me up!

Deep fry your coated wings until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain.

Step 5: Put it all together.

Place your crispy wings in serving bowl, add hot sauce mixture and stir together. Devour!
