Selecting the Chicken

The foundation of any great buffalo wing lies in the quality of the chicken. When selecting your wings, opt for fresh, plump chicken pieces with plenty of meat on the bone. Whether you prefer traditional drumettes or flat wings, choose cuts that are uniform in size to ensure even cooking. If possible, source free-range or organic chicken for the best flavour and texture. Once you've got your chicken sorted, it's time to move on to the next crucial step: seasoning and cooking.

Mastering the Sauce

The key to a memorable buffalo wing lies in the sauce – bold, tangy, and packed with flavour. To create the perfect buffalo sauce, start with a base of hot sauce, melted butter, and a splash of vinegar for that signature tanginess. Add a pinch of garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika for extra depth of flavour, then adjust the heat level to your liking with a dash of cayenne pepper or chili flakes. Simmer the sauce over low heat until it thickens slightly, then toss your cooked wings in the sauce until they're evenly coated. For an extra kick, drizzle a little extra sauce over the top before serving. Whether you prefer your wings mild, medium, or extra spicy, mastering the art of buffalo sauce is sure to take your wing game to the next level.

Perfecting the Cook

Once your sauce is ready, it's time to cook up your wings to crispy, golden perfection. Whether you prefer to bake, grill, or fry your wings, the key is to ensure they're cooked through and crispy on the outside. If baking, arrange your wings in a single layer on a greased baking sheet and cook at a high temperature until they're golden brown and crispy, flipping halfway through for even cooking. If grilling, preheat your grill to medium-high heat and cook your wings for about 10-12 minutes per side, or until they're cooked through and nicely charred. And if frying, heat up your oil to 375°F and fry your wings in batches until they're crispy and golden, then drain on paper towels before tossing in your buffalo sauce. Whichever method you choose, be sure to keep an eye on your wings to prevent them from overcooking.
