Perfect Buffalo Wings Recipe

Wings can be made in a number of different ways but deep frying them is the best – the way Theresa Bellissimo did back in the 1960s at the famous Anchor bar, Buffalo.

Ingredients

12 chicken wings
Rapeseed oil for frying
Matzo meal for coating (optional)
60ml hot pepper sauce (or to taste)
6tbsp butter

Method

1. Remove the tips of the wings (these can be saved and used to make a stock, if you’re into using everything). Separate the wings at the joint using a knife and flatten them.
2. If you want a crispy coating, you can press the wings into a plate of matzo meal, making sure you cover the wings evenly.
2. Heat the oil to 180®C and put the wings in the fryer.
3. Fry for 7-9 minutes.
4. Mix the hot pepper sauce with some butter. Heat the sauce in a pan or microwave, then coat the chicken wings to taste.
5. Serve with celery and a homemade blue cheese dip.
