You can probably guess that I made these recently for a certain football game. I wasn’t interested in the game, but I did watch Beyonce shake it. We had an excellent snack spread and quality girl talk while the boys watched the game. I had never made buffalo chicken wings before and I wanted to try. In preparation, I looked at several sauce recipes and methods for baking them. My buddy, Kyle, offered up his valuable tips, too. My research now becomes your go-to chicken wing recipe.
These are spicy, but not crazy spicy. If you bite right in (which I highly recommend you do) you’ll have some warm lips. The sauce has a mix of Frank’s and Sriracha and I was very pleased with the flavor combination. A vinegar bite from the Frank’s and a complex and flavorful heat from the sriracha. This recipe doesn’t have a ton of butter and isn’t fried because I didn’t want the wings to be greasy or too decadent. Who says we have to wait for football season to make these? I intend to make them for dinner soon.
