Some of people like to deep fry wings and some of them bake the wings. The national buffalo wings festival is weekend festival which held at Coca-Cola field in downtown Buffalo,New York, USA.

My last week trip to Niagara Falls was really the motivation to try out this wonderful recipe. We flew to Buffalo, NY and I was surprised to find abundance of restaurant serving Buffalo Chicken Wings. I was tempted to try it out and also the name “Buffalo” lured me towards the history behind this amazing recipe.
There are two important changes to be noted in my version of Buffalo Chicken Wings.
- I have baked the Chicken Wings instead of deep frying.Baking is always much more heather option than frying in oil.
- I have used finely chopped garlic in the sauce to make the wings more flavorful.
I have cleaned the wings. You can cut them in three section, I have excluded the 3rd small part and only taken the 2 pieces.
You can see below how the Chicken Wings looks below.
Here are the ingredients I have used for marination. I have missed the Onion Powder to place in the photograph below.
After adding all the spices the Chicken wings would look like this.
I have used the Rice Flour, All Purpose Flour, Black Pepper Power & Salt to make a coating on the wings before baking.
See below how I have used the large sandwich bag so that I don’t have to use my hand. There might be excess flour, you don’t have to use it, make sure the wings are properly coated with the flour.
I have applied unsalted butter after placing the wings on the baking sheet.
The wings are properly baked after 30mins. You need to turn them after 15mins of baking. Here is how they looked after baking.
I have used the following items to make the sauce. You can add Thai Red Chili Paste if you want to make it more hot & spicy.
Serve the Buffalo Chicken Wings hot with ranch/blue Cheese and celery sticks.
