Recipe from: the tevelonis's
Here is my favorite buffalo wing recipe. It is a good comromise between blazing heat and tremendous flavour that you will not be able to put down. Enjoy.
For the sauce:
⅛ cup margarine not butter — it is too salty
¼ cup cayenne sauce, the cheaper the better. Louisiana, RedHot, Texas Pete, etc.
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, or 1 tablespoon ketchup and ½ teaspoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoon hot stuff — Tabasco is good, or your favorite habanero or other real hot sauce. I prefer a good cheap chipotle sauce from the Mexican section of the supermarket. If you are not into heat, use cayenne sauce.
10 Tabasco peppers, finely minced with seeds. This is the most important ingredient. They can be found in the pickle section or hot sauce section of your grocer. They are small pointed light green peppers which are generally preserved in vinegar and are marketed under different names.
Make the sauce first. Melt the margarine and add garlic into the warm mixture. Do not heat the cayenne sauce as it tends to make the sauce oversalty and greasy. Cool the margarine for a few minutes and add ingredients. Mix well and let stand at room temp.
For the wings:
about 1 dozen chicken wings
Frying is best, but if you like to bake instead, I suggest turning often or suspending the wings above the cooking container to prevent the skin of the chicken from sticking to the pan. If baking, bake until done. If frying, fry until wings float and are crisp on the outside. Drain and dry wings well, put them in a sealable container with the sauce, and shake gently, inverting the container to coat. The top of the container will "suck in" as the wings cool. |Leave in the container, shaking several times, until the lid of the container begins to return to normal. This helps draw the sauce into the wing surface.
