Buffalo Chicken Wings


I have been craving to make Buffalo Wings at home. This recipe came close to what I can say restaurant quality Buffalo wings. Now all the recipes in net ,are based on frying method.I zeroed on the recipe below and worked according to our taste palate. This recipe you can say is Indianised version of Buffalo wings. I have replaced tobassco sauce with crushed red pepper flakes+some red pepper powder ( or cayenne pepper) and tomato ketchup with sweet chili sauce and pasta sauce while making sauce for the Buffalo wings. Pasta sauce has more volume than tomato ketchup with extra vegetables chunks also. I have avoided using vinegar in the sauce. I have coated chicken pieces twice with flour mixture and baked them at 190 Deg C/400 deg F.Half way thro take them out and coat again with flour, brush off the extra flour and transfer again in baking tray. Double coating gives a nice crunchy texture and trust me they at this stage are irresistible also.


I and my daughter were eating right at this time without even coating with the sauce. If you are preparing it for kids, I would suggest serve it like that and keep a bowl of the sauce handy. They may dip or eat according to their taste buds.

Buffalo Chicken Wings (adapted from- Here )



Recipe requirements
Chicken nibbles-500 gm
½ cup of all purpose flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of red pepper powder/cayenne powder/paprika
For the sauce
½ cup of any pasta sauce
¼ cup of butter
½ cup of sweet chili sauce
Salt as per taste
2-3 tsp of crushed red pepper
Method
Prepare chicken
Wash the chicken pieces well in water. Drain all the water. Pat dry each piece with kitchen towel.
Now marinate the pieces with 1 tsp of red pepper powder and salt.
Sieve together all purpose flour, baking powder, salt and 2 tsp of red pepper powder.
Coat well chicken pieces with the above flour mixture; shake off the extra flour if any.
Preheat oven to 190 deg C/400deg F.
Now line a grease paper over the baking tray.
Place all the chicken pieces over baking tray.
Bake at 190 deg C for 25 mints.
Take out and coat them again with the flour mixture. Bake it for 20 mints now or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and juices run clear.
Prepare the sauce
In a pan, melt butter. Add pasta sauce, sweet chili sauce, red pepper flakes and salt.
Slowly let it simmer at low for 5-6 mints or till all is well mixed up.
Take out baked chicken pieces, coat them well with the sauce that is being prepared. Reserve the left-over sauce to serve along with Buffalo wings.
Serve and enjoy. However if you feel, you may again reheat Buffalo wings at the time of serving. Before reheating, again coat them well in the sauce and bake at 190 deg C for 5-6 mints.
Usually it is served along with blue cheese and celery sticks. However I served this with plain yogurt.


Note-you may use chicken wings or drumsticks in place of chicken nibbles; just adjust/increase the cooking/baking time then. There is another way, you can fry the chicken pieces in hot oil, after you have coated well with flour.

Happy cooking
