Buffalo Wings Recipe ( Chicken Wings ) – Pinoy Recipe


1 kg Chicken wings (separated into drumettes and flats)

  • ½ cup White vinegar
  • ¼ cup Soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Melted butter
  • 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1 tsp Cayenne pepper (adjust to your spice preference)
  • ½ tsp Paprika
  • ¼ tsp Black pepper
  • ¼ cup Hot sauce (e.g., Sriracha, Tabasco)
  • ¼ cup Chopped green onions (for garnish)

  • Directions:

    1. Prep the Wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. This helps ensure crispy skin later on. Separate the wings at the joint, removing the wing tips (you can discard these or save them for making stock).

    2. Marinate the Wings: In a large bowl, combine the white vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, melted butter, garlic, ginger, cayenne pepper, paprika, and black pepper. Whisk well to create a marinade. Add the chicken wings and toss them thoroughly to coat evenly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or ideally, overnight for maximum flavor.

    3. Preheat and Cook: Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Arrange the marinated wings in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure they’re not touching. Bake for 30 minutes, then flip the wings and bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the skin is golden brown and crispy.

    4. Make the Sauce: While the wings are baking, in a small saucepan, combine the hot sauce with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Heat gently over low heat until the butter melts and the sauce is warmed through. You can adjust the amount of hot sauce to your desired spice level.

    5. Toss and Serve: Once the wings are cooked through and crispy, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a large bowl. Toss the wings generously with the prepared hot sauce, making sure they’re evenly coated. Garnish with chopped green onions for a pop of color and freshness. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauces like ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, or even a tangy vinegar dip.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

    1. Can I use different types of hot sauce?

    Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with different hot sauces to find your perfect level of heat. You can also use a combination of hot sauces for a more complex flavor profile. Sriracha, Tabasco, and Frank’s RedHot are all popular options.

    2. Do I have to marinate the wings?

    While marinating isn’t strictly necessary, it allows the flavors to penetrate the chicken for a more flavorful and tender result. However, if you’re short on time, you can skip the marinating step and still end up with delicious wings.

    3. How can I make these wings even crispier?

    For extra crispy skin, you can broil the wings for the last few minutes of cooking. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning. Alternatively, you can fry the wings instead of baking them. However, frying requires more oil and can be messier.
