Buffalo Wings

These are a different version of Buffalo Wings to the ones you can get from a pub in the States. I tried to make these a bit more 'healthier', so therefore these are oven baked and not fried. I also marinate them in some lemon juice and freshly grounded cumin before baking them. After baking the wings, I throw them into the saucepan with the prepared sauce and then put the sauce-coated wings under the grill for about 3 mins. Just enough for the sauce to start bubbling on the wings.
You can serve these with some blue cheese sauce or have them just as is. The perfect snack during poker game nights. :)
Buffalo Wings
Marinate, mix together and let stand for about 1-2 hrs:
  • 1 kg Chicken Wings (separated, tips removed)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoon of cumin (grounded)
  • 3 garlic cloves (roughly chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly grounded black pepper
Bake wings on a wire rack (with a baking tray below to catch the juices & oil dripping), at 180C for about 10 minutes.
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
  • 6 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Frank's)
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grounded black pepper
Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add in the remaining ingredients for the hot sauce and let heat up to a slow simmer.

Add in the baked chicken wings and toss together so that the sauce coats the wings.

Arrange wings in a baking dish and put back into the oven on the grill setting. Let the wings grill for about 3 minutes on high or until you can see the sauce on the wings start to bubble up.

Serve immediately.
