How to Make Buffalo Wing Hot Sauce

When it comes to making Buffalo Wings at home there are 2 ways you can go about it and today we thought we would discuss both methods with you.

If you are a busy person and want a no fuss way to make homemade buffalo wings then you can purchase a variety of bottled (already prepared) barbecue sauces and marinate your chicken wings in the sauce for a few hours and then bake or grill them until done.

For those of you who have the time to cook and enjoy cooking you can make your own buffalo wing hot sauce at home and use that to marinade your chicken wings. One of the recipes we like to use is this spicy hot sauce recipe.

You will need:

12 chicken wings
1/2 cup white all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground Paprika
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup butter (not margarine)
1/2 cup hot sauce (your favorite brand or home made)
1 clove of garlic, minced

In a large mixing bowl combine together the all-purpose flour, Cayenne pepper, ground Paprika, salt and ground black pepper. Pour mixture into a large plastic zipper closure bag and then place 2-3 chicken wings (at a time) into the bag and shake it up to thoroughly coat the wings. Take the wings out and place them in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Repeat until all chicken wings are coated and done.

Cover the baking dish and place into the refrigerator for 3-5 hours (or overnight). In a large saucepan combine together the butter, hot sauce and minced garlic and simmer on low for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and pour mixture over the wings in the baking dish. Make sure you flip the wings over so that they get coated on both sides.

Place wings on a hot preheated grill and grill each side for 8-10 minutes or place the baking dish into a preheated 375 degree oven and bake for 30-45 minutes or until done. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce as a main dish or as an appetizer alone.
