This the real thing! Very simple, very very good, and absolutely authentic taste *IF* you use Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Not Tabasco. Not nothin' else ... and you'll have the taste just like the originals from The Anchor Bar in Buffalo NY. And, just like Chef John says, butter is what you use ... not margarine. You should never buy store-bought wing sauce (waste of money, bad taste, and this stuff is soooo easy to make!). Suggestions: - Omit the cayenne if you want your wings mild-to-medium-hot, 1/4 tsp as listed if you want it medium-hot, and, well, you get the idea. - Skip the extra salt (absolutely not necessary as all bottled hot sauce is incredibly salty anyway) - Keep the sauce warm on the stove, and toss your hot-out-of-the-oven wings in a good amount of warmed hot-sauce, serve immediately - Do not put these back in the oven to "dry" the sauce ... they're supposed to be saucy. - Keep some extra warmed hot sauce on the table for dipping (for those of us that need more hot-sauce punishment!) - Lastly, serve with a real home-made blue cheese dressing, as there are several good ones on this site (choose one with less mayo-to-sour cream ratio) ... and don't forget the celery & carrot sticks to garnish for a crunch & cooling effect! Thanks for a great recipe, Chef John.

This is it!! I am from Buffalo and have lived away for many years. Every year when I visit I just can't get enough "wings", but now I can make them myself! Authentic recipe (sorry to those who don't like it, but this IS what wings taste like in Buffalo)... I deep fried the wings in peanut oil (355 degrees) in batches, then tossed all of the wings in the sauce - give em a good shake - with the lid on of course. Serve with blue cheese dressing, carrot and celery sticks. Tastes like home :) Thanks to Chef John!

This recipe is simple and very good. We cooked it and dipped drumsticks in the sauce. Then we baked the drumsticks and used the rest of the sauce for dipping. Next time we plan to marinade it to get more flavor.

12/27/2012

I make this sauce then marinate my chicken in the buffalo chicken wing sauce usually choosing chicken breasts. after its been sitting for a few hours I cook the chicken in the sauce over medium head(essentially poaching the chicken in wing sauce) then I shred the chicken with a fork and put it over salad, it is the best thing I've EVER eaten! its a must try!

05/06/2014

Made this creamy and smooth by using the advice of another by melting the butter first and throwing in a little flour to make a roux. Perfect! I followed the rest of recipe exactly and it was so creamy and good! Then I did add a little more pepper and garlic after I made the original recipe just because we like more heat. Loved the flour roux idea and will always make my sauce creamy like this forever and because of the roux the butter doesn't separate out as easily.

01/01/2012

I really disliked this sauce--I couldn't eat it at all! I tried it with Frank's Hot Sauce and with Crystal Hot Sauce. The butter aroma and flavor was overwhelming in both batches.

08/06/2012

Heck yeah. I used plain old store-brand hot sauce, and somehow I ran out of vinegar, so had to leave it out, but it was still awesome. I spread a pizza crust with ranch dressing, then topped with shredded chicken tossed in the sauce.. topped with red onion, bleu cheese crumbles, and mozzarella. HEAVEN. One thing that wasn't included in the directions, which I found relevant: As soon as I removed the sauce from the heat and the boil died down, the sauce began to separate. So when I was ready to use it, I returned it to the heat, brought back to a boil, pulled it, and quickly tossed the chicken before it had a chance to separate again.

02/03/2013

Thank you Chef John,I followed this exactly as written. First I baked the wings by lightly coating them in flour, set in fridge for an hour (to dry them from washing) and then cooked in oven at 400 degrees for an hour. Then you coat this sauce onto wings by shaking them and the sauce in a popcorn bowl with a plate on top. I am from Buffalo and I eat at the anchor bar. If this isn't the recipe, you are fooling me. These are perfect and so delicious...especially if you eat them hot.

05/04/2012

OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!! great tang- omitted the cayenne. fried a bag of chicken wings (thaw and thoroughly dry the wing pieces.. then salt/pepper, then cover in flour in a ziplock bag- 9 minutes per batch) then mixed them in this sauce.. FABULOUS!!!

Spice things up a bit with this homemade Chicken Wings Hot Sauce Recipe.

Hot Sauce Recipe

It seems like football season and hot and spicy go hand in hand. We’re certainly not complaining around here. Especially if hot wings are involved. Although anything with hot sauce is popular family-wide, even with our former picky eater. Maybe especially with our former picky eater. Hot sauce finds its way into anything and everything on his plate. At the age of 15 he gets to mixing and combining all kinds of seasonings to spice things up. The spicier the better as far as he’s concerned.

I sure do look forward to the day he masters his cooking skills and serves up his own batch of prize-worthy spiced up wings. I don’t think we’ll have to wait too long. He’s already shown a penchant for it.

Recently I mixed up our own version of a Chicken Wings Hot Sauce Recipe with enough heat to please our son. This hot sauce is such a great addition to any grilled chicken or try it on ribs too.

Hot Sauce Recipe

In the meantime I hope you enjoy the spicy concoction with this Chicken Wings Hot Sauce Recipe. If you like things a little on the milder side, taste and adjust accordingly. It’s pretty hot, y’all.

  • 1 cup hot sauce (like Tabasco Sauce, Texas Pete, or Sriracha)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or brown sugar, packed)
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 ounce soy sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan stovetop and bring to a low simmer. Simmer for about 2-3 minutes, reduce heat to low and cook for at least another 10 minutes or so.
  2. Remove from heat and use right away, or, if preparing ahead, let cool, then refrigerate covered until ready to use.

Frank’s RedHot® Buffalo Wings Sauce

The Original Buffalo Wings Sauce Fair warning. We’re not going to be modest here … we’ve heard things like “It’s the ONLY hot sauce I use for my wings with buffalo sauce recipes” and “Buffalo sauce – it’s the holy grail.” And we can’t say we disagree. But what is it that …

Fair warning. We’re not going to be modest here … we’ve heard things like “It’s the ONLY hot sauce I use for my wings with buffalo sauce recipes” and “Buffalo sauce – it’s the holy grail.” And we can’t say we disagree. But what is it that makes our buffalo sauce for wings so special?

1. Buffalo Sauce Ingredients
Buffalo sauce starts just like Frank’s RedHot® Original – aged cayenne red peppers, distilled vinegar, water, salt and garlic powder. But really, it ends there. (So, what’s thedifference between hot sauce and buffalo sauce?) Natural butter flavor and paprika. It seems so simple, but these two ingredients are what really make the leap from hot sauce to crave-worthy, can’t get-enough buffalo-style.

2. Tastes like …


The smooth, buttery hot sauce cousin of Frank’s RedHot® Original that belongs all over your wings. It’s hot. (And we like it that way.)

3. The Story


Why do they call it “buffalo sauce?” Time-travel to 1964. Anchor Bar & Grill in Buffalo, NY. The geniuses in their kitchen combined Frank’s RedHot with butter, sauced up abunch of wings and got after it. Plates were licked clean. And so, it was called “Buffalo Sauce.” The end. (Actually, it was just the beginning.) Well, we’re convinced Frank’s RedHot® Buffalo Wings Sauce is THE sauce. Are you? Get your hands on a bottle of this buffalo sauce stat and give it a lick/drink/slurp/sip/dip/dunk and discover it’s awesomesauce for yourself.
Basic Frank's Buffalo Wings Recipe - The Spruce Eats

Bake the wings for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the wings over. Cook for another 15 to 16 minutes until the wings are cooked through and …

The Spruce / Cara Cormack

Although there are many stories as to why the crispy and saucy chicken wings are called Buffalo wings, most stories point to Buffalo, NY, being the place of birth of this party food that has been an American staple since the '60s.

Flavorful and decadent, chicken wings are a wonderful appetizer for gatherings of family and friends, but also can be a fun meal for a weeknight family meal. Classic Frank's hot sauce, a mild-in-spice sauce, has been an ingredient used for decades in creating the succulent sauce that coats the wings—the sauce is also good on ribs, fries, hot dogs, or other snacky foods. If you are making the sauce with a spicier brand, be sure to taste and adjust accordingly.

We swapped the fryer for the oven to make a simple variation on classic Buffalo chicken wings, equally tasty but without the extra calories from the frying oil. Some added-sugar in the sauce and optional cayenne to make the wings even hotter complete our take on the classic. For a fully authentic experience, serve with celery stalks and blue cheese dressing on the side. This recipe makes about 40 wings by the time you get them cut into flats and drums. If transporting them, place the finished wings in a slow cooker. Low heat will keep them nice and warm.

"Who ever thought you could make delicious buffalo chicken wings at home, with the added feature of baking rather than frying? This recipe is definitely a keeper; perfect as a starter for a gathering, or a simple weeknight meal." —Diana Andrews

For the Wings:

  • Cooking spray

  • 5 pounds whole chicken wings, or pre-cut wings

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • 1 cup Frank's hot sauce, or other mild hot sauce

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, or margarine

  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • Cayenne pepper, to taste, optional

  • Celery, optional

  • Blue cheese dressing, optional

  1. Gather the ingredients.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  2. Preheat oven to 450 F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. If working with whole wings, split into 3 pieces (rather than discarding the wing tips, save for chicken stock).

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  3. Pat the wings dry with paper towels. Season the wings with salt and spread them out evenly on the baking pan. Do not crowd them and use 2 pans if necessary.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  4. Bake the wings for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the wings over. Cook for another 15 to 16 minutes until the wings are cooked through and well-browned.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack 
  5. While the chicken wings are baking, mix the hot sauce, butter, vinegar, and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  6. Bring it to a simmer, stir, then turn off the heat. Taste the sauce and add cayenne pepper, if using, to suit your taste.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  7. Transfer the fully baked wings to a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over the hot wings, tossing with a spoon or spatula to completely coat.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  8. Let sit for 10 minutes and toss again. The chicken wings will soak in the sauce while resting.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack
  9. Toss one last time and transfer to a serving platter. Serve with celery stalks and a bowl of blue cheese dressing. Enjoy.

    The Spruce / Cara Cormack

Traditionalists will tell you that blue cheese and celery sticks are always served with Buffalo wings. While it is a great combination, there's no shame in trying something new. Serve the wings with your favorite sauce, like ranch dressing, chipotle, or mustard mayonnaise. Perhaps a refreshing bowl of cucumber-dill tzatziki, yogurt sauce, or a simple labneh. Try adding fresh carrots, sliced green apples, or jicama sticks into the platter. There's nothing like trying something new.

How to Make Buffalo Sauce at Home

It’s no secret that we’re buffalo chicken fans — we’ve added it to pizza, dips, stuffed shells, baked wings and chicken rice bowls. We’ve been making homemade buffalo sauce for ages. It’s simple, tastes amazing and doesn’t have any unnecessary ingredients added. Recently, we figured out that you can make a big batch of sauce and store it in the fridge for weeks. The sauce thickens in the fridge, but 10 seconds in the microwave and a good stir gets it back into shape.

Thanks to Buffalo, NY, we have buffalo sauce (hooray). There’s lots of play when making it at home, but you’re going to start with two main ingredients — butter and hot sauce. No wonder it tastes so good, right?

Melt butter over low heat — I like low since it keeps the butter creamy and there isn’t any risk of it browning. Not that brown butter is a bad thing, it’s delicious. It simply isn’t what we are looking for in our sauce.

When the butter has melted take the pan off of the heat.

Finally, whisk in hot sauce and garlic powder. Whisk until the sauce is smooth and red. We use Frank’s hot sauce, it’s got everything we’re looking for when a craving for buffalo wing sauce hits. That said, it would be fun to play around with other hot sauces (Crystal is popular and I’ve been wanting to try Cholula for a while, too).

We’ve also kicked around making our own hot sauce, but haven’t gotten there yet. I’ll keep you updated!

With three ingredients and 10 minutes, this homemade buffalo sauce is simple to make. Check the notes section below for inspiration on adapting and storing it. The recipe below makes a medium-hot sauce. For a spicier version, add some cayenne pepper — start with 1/4 teaspoon, taste and go from there. For a milder version, reduce the hot sauce by 1/3 to 1/2 cup.

Makes about 2 cups

Watch Us Make the Recipe

You Will Need

16 tablespoons (1 cup or 8 ounces) unsalted butter

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 1/3 cups hot sauce, like Frank’s or Crystal

Directions

Melt butter in a medium pan over medium-low heat until melted. Remove pan from the heat to prevent the sauce from breaking.

Whisk in the garlic powder and hot sauce until a cohesive sauce forms, about 1 minute.

Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 month — mason jars are great for this.

  • Using chilled sauce: Since there is butter in the sauce, it will thicken when refrigerated. To use, give the thickened sauce a good stir then spoon out what you need into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 10 to 15 seconds then stir or whisk until the sauce comes back together.
  • Use fresh garlic: Instead of garlic powder, add a few smashed garlic cloves to the butter and cook over medium-low heat until soft. Remove the pan from the heat then add the hot sauce. Blend until smooth.
  • Dairy-free / vegan-friendly recipe: Replacing butter with a vegan butter substitute should work. (We have not tried this). We have tried olive oil and did not like the taste. It tasted too much like olive oil and brought out a peppery taste that the butter seemed to soften.
  • Nutrition facts: The nutrition facts provided below are estimates. We have used the USDA Supertracker recipe calculator to calculate approximate values.

This super-hot buffalo wing sauce recipe is for serious chileheads only. If you’re a certifiable heat freak and are tired of other buffalo wing sauce recipes leaving your tongue disappointed with a flat heat level, then these scorchers should do the trick.

First, you will need two things:

  • 2-3 pounds of assorted chicken wings, both flats and drumettes.
  • Approximately 1 quart of cooking oil.

Regular Super-Hot Buffalo Sauce Version

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Frank’s RedHot Pepper Sauce
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 whole fresh habanero chile peppers, finely minced (leave seeds in)

Insane Screaming Super-Hot Wing Sauce Version

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Frank’s RedHot Pepper Sauce
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 whole fresh habanero chile peppers, finely minced (leave seeds in)
  • 6 whole fresh ghost peppers (AKA bhut jolokias), finely minced (leave seeds in)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Carolina Reaper, Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, or Trinidad Scorpion Butch T powder (whatever is available)

girl-eating-hot-wingCooking Instructions for Both Versions of the Super-Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce Recipe:

  1. Mince the chile peppers (either the “milder” habaneros for the Regular recipe or the “hotter” habaneros and ghost peppers for the Insane Screaming recipe). Place chile pepper bits in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Take all other ingredients and mix in a bowl with minced peppers.
  3. In the case of the Insane Super-Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce Recipe, grab a tablespoon measuring spoon that you will not use for any other purposes and measure out the amount needed.
  4. Heat vegetable oil (peanut oil tastes great with chicken wings) in your fryer to 350 degrees F.  Fry naked wings for around 10 to 12 minutes, or until light golden-brown in color. Remove wings from the fryer and drain briefly on a rack or paper towels.
  5. After draining wings, put fried wings in a sturdy plastic container with a lid. Add 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of your sauce (Regular or Insane Screaming Wing Sauce Recipe) of choice to the wings inside of the container. Replace lid and shake well to coat wings.
  6. Serve immediately with ranch or blue cheese dressing (or nothing at all!).
  7. Enjoy!

Notes:

  1. First and foremost, wear gloves! And do not rub your eyes, nose, or sensitive areas on your body during or after handling chile peppers and chile pepper powder. Take off gloves and wash your hands thoroughly.

Buffalo Wing Sauce - Homemade Buffalo Sauce - Fifteen Spatulas

25-06-2018

This Buffalo Wing Sauce has the perfect balance of flavors and a smooth consistency. It’s easy to make and excellent for tossing with fried or baked chicken wings.

When you grow up eating Buffalo Wings every Sunday for your entire childhood, you really get to know what the perfect sauce tastes like, and this is it.

Buffalo Wing Sauce - With Spoon and Saucepan Showing Texture

And no, I’m not talking about me (I’m from California), but rather about my husband Pete, who is an Upstate New York native. He really knows his stuff when it comes to wings.

Even though buffalo sauce only has four ingredients to it, the balance is essential.

For example, Pete taught me that you don’t want to add more Frank’s sauce when you want spicier wings, but rather, you want to add ground cayenne pepper.

Frank’s is spicy and cayenne-based, but it also has a ton of vinegar in it that’ll make the sauce too tangy. It can easily throw off the balance.

This Buffalo Wing Sauce has a luscious, smooth mouthfeel that coats the wings really nicely, and has the right amount of spiciness and tang to it.

Buffalo Sauce - Dripping From Spoon Into Saucepan

A good buffalo sauce will coat a spoon and have a slight thickness.

That way you know that it’ll coat the chicken wings beautifully too.

How to Make Buffalo Wing Sauce:

To get started, melt a half stick of unsalted butter in a saucepan:

Stick of Butter Melting in Saucepan

You can also melt it in the microwave instead, if that’s easier for you.

Next add Frank’s, and the exact one you want is “Frank’s Red Hot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce.”

They sell quite a few varieties, but it’s this original one that you want in particular:

Melted Butter and Frank\'s Hot Sauce Pouring Into Pan

Next add worcestershire sauce. Only a little bit is needed:

Adding Worcestershire Sauce to Wing Sauce in Saucepan

Then add ground cayenne pepper to the buffalo sauce:

Adding Cayenne Pepper for Buffalo Sauce Recipe in Saucepan

When you want more heat, always add more ground cayenne pepper instead of extra Frank’s sauce. Otherwise you’ll throw off the balance of acidity.

Whisk this all together until it’s emulsified:

Hot Wing Sauce in Saucepan with Whisk

Now it’s ready to be tossed with freshly fried or baked chicken wings, and served with homemade Blue Cheese Dip!

If you haven’t tried chicken wings baked instead of fried, it’s one of my most popular recipes since 2012 and many people like them more than fried wings.

One more note on the sauce: it will change in consistency as it cools off, because butter tends to firm up as it chills. For that reason, we make the sauce while the wings are cooking. You can reheat it as needed.

Can you make buffalo sauce ahead? Yes, just reheat on the stove or in the microwave and whisk together to combine.

Also, we don’t add any salt to the sauce, as there is a substantial amount in the Frank’s. But you can adjust to taste if you’d like.

For more Buffalo Recipes and Game Day food, this Buffalo Chicken Dip is another favorite (here’s the crockpot version: Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip).

For something a little different, try Buffalo Chicken Pizza or Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine. Enjoy!

The combination of butter and hot sauce creates a rich and silky smooth sauce. Adding the butter also cuts into the heat allowing you to control the spice.

To get the crispiest results when frying food, there are a few things to keep in mind. It's important that the oil maintains a temperature of 375 F while the food is cooking, so it's best to use a deep-fry thermometer and watch carefully. Also, do not crowd the pot as that will lower the oil temperature, which will result in soggy food.

Buffalo wing sauce in a Pyrex jug

I know many people just buy bottles of hot sauce to toss crunchy chicken wings in, but honestly, a good buffalo wing sauce is SO easy to make and tastes much better! It’s perfectly balanced, not too tangy or hot, it’s smooth, rich, and delicious.

So whether you’re making buffalo chicken wings for Superbowl, or you’re just craving great tasting buffalo wings, you have to make the wing sauce from scratch!

Why Do They Call It Buffalo Sauce?

The name has nothing to do with buffalos! The sauce was invented in 1964 by a family-owned business called Anchor bar located in Buffalo, New York.

While the original buffalo sauce has never been published, we know for sure that buffalo sauce is specifically made with Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce. I have made it so many times, and here’s the closest recipe to what you can get at a NY sports bar.

What Is Buffalo Wing Sauce Made Of?

Buffalo sauce is all about balanced flavors! The main ingredient is, of course, Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce (the original, not Frank’s wing sauce). It’s an aged cayenne pepper-based hot sauce that already includes vinegar and garlic powder, so it’s hot but also acidic.

To balance the acidity, I like to add some type of sweetener (I used honey in this recipe), but brown sugar or maple syrup can also be used.

Butter is added for richness, smoothness, and balancing the flavors. It’s an essential ingredient to make a delicious buffalo wing sauce.

Seasoning with salt and pepper is totally optional but adds some flavor.

Ingredients needed to make homemade Buffalo wing sauce

TIP: If you like your sauce really hot, do not add more hot sauce, instead, add half a teaspoon of cayenne powder. Adding more hot sauce will result in a very tangy sauce that is not very pleasant (due to the vinegar).

Other optional ingredients that you can add: a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, ½ teaspoon of paprika, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, and ½ teaspoon of onion powder.

Complete list of ingredients and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.

Why Add Butter to Hot Wing Sauce?

The butter is what gives you a restaurant-quality sauce at home. It adds silky and smooth richness to the sauce, cuts down the heat a little, and of course, adds great flavor!

How to Make Buffalo Sauce

This is so simple and takes just 5 minutes of your time!

Melt butter in the microwave in a small bowl or glass jug (do not overheat, microwave until the butter has just melted), then add the hot sauce, honey, salt and pepper (if using). Whisk until well combined, and that’s your wing sauce ready to dip!

Keep the wing sauce warm, or reheat slightly prior to using.

The sauce is enough for 3 pounds of chicken wings.

Common Questions About Buffalo Sauce

How to make buffalo sauce spicier?

Add ½ teaspoon of cayenne to the sauce.

How to store homemade wing sauce?

Store homemade buffalo sauce in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 month. If it separates, it’s because the butter hardens when it’s chilled. Just reheat it gently prior to use.

What can I substitute Frank’s hot sauce with?

Any hot sauce would do, Louisiana hot sauce, sriracha, etc.

What can I substitute the butter with?

You can use ghee or sunflower oil.

Spicy-Sweet Wing Sauce Recipe

Spicy-Sweet Wing Sauce Recipe

The Secret Is in the Sauce

Here's my secret for making the best wing sauce recipe: I use Frank's Red Hot Wings Sauce as the base for a homemade Buffalo wing or boneless wing sauce. A standard procedure is to use a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce mixed with butter and margarine, and voila! You have a great wing sauce. Until a few years ago, that's all I would use.

But then a great friend of mine, Reggie B., turned me on to his wife's amazing sauce, which was the best I've ever tasted. Mrs. B. worked at a fancy restaurant in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she would create some less-than-formal entrees for her enthusiastic lunch crowd. Buffalo wings were a big hit there, but since it was such a great restaurant, she couldn't just serve a standard wing sauce. She had to create something special and unique: a version of the recipe I'm going to share with you now.

A few years ago, I was finally able to get hold of the recipe from her and begin creating it myself. The recipe for her original creation is top secret, but what I'm about to share with you is my (still amazing) version of the same sauce.

Ingredients

This wing sauce is a terrific blend of sweet and hot. It tastes very special but uses just a few ingredients that you can buy at any grocery store.

  • 1 cup of Frank's Red Hot Wings Sauce
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic, or fresh minced cloves
  • About 1/4 cup of light brown sugar (How much you use depends on how sweet you want it. I would recommend starting out with less and adding more as you go.)
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce.

Supplies

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • 1 small saucepan

Instructions

  1. Measure out 1 cup of hot sauce.
  2. Pour into a saucepan.
  3. Add sliced butter or margarine.
  4. Add brown sugar.
  5. Add the garlic and Worcestershire sauce, and turn on the heat.
  6. Allow the mixture to achieve a slight rolling boil, stirring frequently.
  7. Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for 30 minutes.

Step 1: Pour the Hot Sauce

Okay, this is the most difficult and most important step, so listen closely: You need to pour Frank's Red Hot Wings Sauce into a measuring cup until you reach 1 cup. (Don't mind the tomatoes in the picture: I just added them for decoration!)

Pouring the sauce

Step 2: Pour Into a Saucepan

I know you didn't have a problem with Step 1, so let's continue. Pour the cup of hot sauce into the small saucepan. Congratulations, you're done! Let's move on.

Step 3: Add the Butter or Margarine

I cut the butter into eight slices because it melts a whole lot more easily. Go ahead and slice up your cold butter, adding it to the wing sauce in the pan.

Step 4: Add the Brown Sugar

Start out with just 1/8 cup of brown sugar if you want just a touch of sweet with more heat. I personally like it a bit sweeter, with about 1/4 cup of sugar. You don't have to pack the sugar down. Instead, fill the measuring cup up fairly loosely, level it out, and pour it into the sauce.

Precooked mixture

Step 5: Add the Garlic and Worcester Sauce and Turn on the Heat

Now you are ready to add the teaspoon of minced garlic and the tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to the pan. Once complete, you can place the saucepan on the stove at low-to-medium heat, stirring frequently. Don't leave it unattended or the wing sauce will scorch! You don't want to go back to Step 1—or worse, order out for dinner—because you ruined your almost-finished sauce!

Rolling boil

Rolling boil

Step 6: Reach a Slight Rolling Boil

You will want to stir the sauce on low-to-medium heat until you reach a slight rolling boil. Once it's at a boil, stir it frequently for about two minutes. You will notice the sauce changing color a little and slightly expanding: that's a good thing. At about the two-minute mark, turn off the heat.

Step 7: Set the Timer

You want to make sure the heat is turned off. If you're using an electric stove, remove the sauce pan from the hot burner. Set a timer for about 30 minutes and cover the sauce pan. When the timer goes off, your sauce is done! This recipe will make about a cup and a half of wing sauce.

Homemade Red Hot Sauce

Here's what you will need to complete this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 11–12 extra-ripe red jalapeño chilies or 20 tabasco or Serrano chilies, sliced thin
  • 3/4 cup diced onions
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup distilled vinegar

Instructions

  1. Mix the peppers, onions, salt, garlic, paprika and olive oil in a nonstick saucepan over high heat. Sauté for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the water and cook an additional 20 minutes, or until peppers are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated. (Caution: Keep a fan on or the windows open for ventilation; the peppers can cause a strong reaction in the eyes and nose.)
  3. Remove the pan from heat and allow to sit until the hot sauce reaches room temperature.
  4. In a blender or magic bullet (I recommend the magic bullet), blend the mixture for about 20 seconds or until smooth.
  5. Carefully add the vinegar and blend a few more seconds, to make sure the sauce is well incorporated.
  6. Now you are ready to taste it. You may want to add more salt or garlic, depending on your preference.
  7. Strain the sauce in a fine mesh sleeve. Once strained, pour the hot sauce into a bowl or bottle: that's your homemade hot sauce!

If you want to make that into a wing sauce, just start back at Step 1 of the recipe above.

This is such a great recipe. Simply add all ingredients into a medium saucepan, bring the contents to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Asian (dark) sesame oil

Until next time,

Buffalo Sauce Recipe

Homemade Buffalo Sauce Recipe

Over the past week I’ve been whipping up my husband’s love language. All things buffalo.

Matt pours buffalo sauce over everything. Pulled pork. Wings. Burgers. Potatoes. Popcorn. Salad. You name name the food and he’s probably put his favorite sauce on it.

He’s perfectly content with his store-bought sauce but I wanted to see what he thought of a homemade sauce. His reaction after these buffalo wings? He was in love. With the sauce itself and me for making the sauce. The homemade buffalo sauce allowed him to control the amount of spice for what he was feeling at the moment. And the rich buttery flavor? Delicious.

Where Does Buffalo Sauce Get Its Name?

Rumor has it that buffalo wings were first served in a restaurant in Buffalo, NY, created by the owner. Pretty amazing that her special sauce became something that millions love so much!

What is Buffalo Sauce Made Of?

Traditional sauce is made of cayenne pepper sauce (we used Frank’s RedHot), butter (to cool down the hot sauce a little), vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and spice. My favorite ingredient? Butter. 🙂

How to Make Buffalo Sauce

This spicy sauce is really easy to make. You’ll simple add the ingredients to a saucepan and allow the butter to melt over medium heat. When the sauce starts to simmer, remove the pan from the stovetop and allow it to cool. In less than 15 minutes you’ll be ready to dip, dip, dip!

Storing Homemade Wing Sauce

This recipe makes enough to cover 5 pounds of wings with several layers of sauce and then still have sauce leftover for dipping. Be sure to cover and refrigerate any leftovers. If the sauce separates and becomes “chunky”, it’s just from the butter hardening. All it takes is a minute in the microwave to soften that butter and make a smooth sauce again.

Wingin' It: 25 Chicken Wing Sauces, Ranked From Worst To Best

08-01-2019 · There are definitely a few standard wing flavors that are by far still the best.

08-01-2019

Chicken wings used to be nothing more than scraps. They were used mainly for making chicken stock, which is a good way to use them, but it's definitely not the best. The legend goes that chicken wings were first served in their modern form at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York. Of course, this origin story has been disputed, and there have been several other historical cases of people selling deep-fried chicken wings at their restaurants. No matter where they started out, there's no denying that the chicken wing is still the king of meaty snacks. There might be nothing more beautiful than a pile of perfectly sauced wings, just waiting to be devoured.

And this is where we come to the star of the show: the sauce. Wings might be delicious if they are just plain, but it's the sauce that makes them shine. Does that make chicken wings little more than sauce delivery vessels? Pretty much, but that's okay! It just means that any chicken wing can become great as long as it has the right sauce on it. Some places that serve wings pride themselves on having a huge list of available wing sauces, but the truth is that many of them are forgettable at best and downright gross at worst. There are definitely a few standard wing flavors that are by far still the best, but there have also been other creative flavors that have shown they can stand up there with the greats. These are 25 chicken wing sauces ranked from worst to best.

25 Chocolate Cherry

via beyondtheolive.com

When it comes to sauces for chicken wings, there are some lines that should not be crossed. For example, maybe making a chocolate cherry sauce for chicken wings is not exactly the best or most appetizing idea. We can only imagine that this sauce is sickly sweet and completely overbearing to your taste buds. It's likely that a sauce like this would have zero balance, ending up nothing but a sticky, oddly-flavored mess. This sauce winds up at the bottom of the list for a lack of creativity and a total mess of a flavor.

24 Peanut Butter and Jelly

via Tablespoon.com

What did we just say about some lines that shouldn't be crossed?! This is exactly the kind of silliness we were talking about. Peanut butter and jelly wings? Get out of here with that nonsense! These wings are coated in a sauce that is made from peanut butter and grape jelly, which frankly sounds like a nightmare. There's only one food item that should contain peanut butter and jelly and its a sandwich. Maybe crackers too, but that's as far as it should go! These rank slightly higher than the cherry chocolate only because peanut butter can be used to make respectable sauces (more on that later).

23 Alfredo

via bettycrocker.com

Alfredo sauce is rich. Some might even say it's too rich. Then again, there are others who are proponents of the creamy pasta sauce. However you feel about it, there's no denying that it shouldn't be put on wings. First of all, the idea of creamy wings just seems wrong, doesn't it? Second, alfredo sauce really has a very mild flavor, one that isn't going to add much to the wing experience. Alfredo might be good when it's poured over linguine, but it has no place in the world of chicken wings.

22 Ranch

via cdkitchen.com

Ranch has the same problem as alfredo sauce. It's creamy, which is a weird sauce texture to have on wings. Ranch is more like the sauce you dip hot wings in to take the edge off. It only ranks a little bit higher than alfredo because the buttermilk in ranch gives it a little bit more tang, which would at least offset the creaminess to some degree. Still, this isn;t exactly a wing sauce that people would be lining up to try. That is unless they're those strange people who think ranch is the be-all end-all of sauce.

21 Plum Sauce

via foodrepublic.com

Plum sauce is great for dipping spring rolls and chicken fingers, but it's more of a supporting player for other flavors. It can't really be the star of the show, and when it comes to chicken wings, the sauce has to be the star. Sure, the way the wing is cooked is important too, but it's really the sauce that makes or breaks them. Plum sauce is generally sweet with a note of sour to it, but it's not exactly the kind of balanced flavor that can carry something all on its own.

20 Marinara

via mc2creativeliving.com

We're back to the pasta sauce. Marinara on a chicken wing is kind of an odd idea, but it's not entirely out of left field. After all, it's red, acidic, with savory and sweet notes. It's not exactly the worst sauce for a wing, but it just doesn't seem to fit. First of all, marinara would have a hard time sticking to a wing, and for wing aficionados, that matters. Second, while marinara is great on many different foods, it is a really specific flavor that needs other things to balance it out, like mozzarella, parmesan, or fresh basil.

19 Caramel

via whiteonricecouple.com

While a chocolate cherry sauce might be pretty bad for chicken wings, there is something about a caramel sauce that seems to work a little bit better. Maybe it's the fact that the sticky, sweetness of the caramel would play really well with the crispiness of a perfectly fried chicken wing. The only reason these are lower on the list is the lack of a more complex flavor profile. Caramel may be great for adding to other flavors in order to up the sweet factor, but on its own, It's maybe just a little too flat.

18 Sriracha

via foodandwine.com

Sriracha doesn't have to just be the sauce you put on noodles, or eggs, or hot dogs, or burgers, or... Okay, admit it. You put sriracha on everything. Well, that list doesn't have to stop at wings. While it might not be as popular a choice as some of the standard hot wing sauces out there, there's no denying that sriracha has a truly unique flavor, owing to the mixture of chili and garlic, as well as the fermentation process. Still, it can be a bit much for some people, which is why it's often used in sparing doses to enhance other flavors, rather than trying to stanf out on its own.

17 Honey Mustard

via tasteofhome.com

Honey mustard doesn't just have to be a sandwich topping or a salad dressing. It can also be used to make a pretty good wing sauce. While mustard-based sauces are not all that common, there's no reason why they shouldn't be. After all, the sweetness of the honey combined with the recognizable mild heat of mustard would make for a well-balanced wing flavor. Besides, mustard is actually a key part of South Carolina barbecue, so it definitely has it's place in the pantheon of meat. As far as non-traiditional wing sauces go, this one is pretty good!

16 Fish Sauce

via rasamalaysia.com

Okay, before you turn your noses up at the idea of fish sauce, let us explain why this is so high on the list. Yes, fish sauce is made from fermented anchovies, but that is what gives it such umami power! Fish sauce is a key ingredient in a lot of great dishes. It's not added to give dishes a fishy flavor, but rather to enhance the other flavors and bring them to the front. If you've ever eaten a great bowl of pho, the flavor probably came from just the right amount of fish sauce. Therefore, chicken wings that utilize fish sauce would be packed with amazing flavor and would be even more savory than usual.

15 Curry

via yeprecipes.com

when people think curry, they probably think it's going to be burn-your-mouth off spicy. however, that's a really unfair description of curry flavor and really diminishes just how complex and delicious a curry sauce can be. Curry can be spicy, of course, but it also combines earthy and savory notes to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Curry sauce would be a great wing coating if only to give people something a little different than what they are used to.

14 Spicy Peanut Sauce

via foodnetwork.com

Remember above how we said that peanut butter can be used to make a really great sauce? This is what we were talking about. While peanut butter and jelly wings sound wholly unappealing, there's something that makes peanut butter work really well with spices and other seasonings to create a sauce that is often used in Thailand to give their dishes a savory yet spicy flavor that is totally unique. Wings with a spicy peanut sauce would be a big hit and would be a great change form some of the more played-out flavors (without having to resort to using grape jelly).

13 Jerk Sauce

via marthastewart.com

Jerk seasoning is a major staple of dishes from Jamaica, and it is known for packing a real punch. The combination of flavors and spices make jerk seasoning a truly unique spice blend, one that captures the tropical flavors of the island while also majorly delivering on the heat. Of course, you can tone down the heat factor of any jerk sauce, but why would you want to? Making jerk chicken wings would be all about packing them with spice, and seeing just how many of your friends can handle them!

12 Harissa

via foodnetwork.com

Harissa is a blend of hot peppers, red peppers, and garlic that originates from Tunisia, and is often used as a dip or a flavor enhancer in other dishes. Its heat level can vary quite a bit, which is why it would be so perfect for making wings that move away from some of the more traditional hot flavors. Sure, Louisiana hot sauce is the standard for wings, but harissa would deliver something far more complex while still making people's mouths water (and their tongues burn).

11 Teriyaki

via foodnetwork.com

Teriyaki flavor is something that is utilized to great effect in dishes originating from Japan. Its blend of both sweet and umami flavors makes it the perfect coating for almost any meat, and the way it can get a nice char on it if it is tossed under a broiler gives it an edge over other sweet sauces. Teriyaki wings are great if you want to try something that is not based on being hot but also isn't too flatly sweet. The complex flavor profile of teriyaki makes it one of the more appealing wing sauces overall.

10 Adobo

via foodnetwork.com

You may recognize adobo from its supporting role in canned chipotle peppers, but the truth about it is that it has so many great applications (besides helping to preserve those tasty, spicy smoked jalapenos). Adobo has a really rich and smoky flavor, which makes it the closest thing to barbecue sauce without actually being barbecue sauce. It's really just a very generously spiced tomato sauce, but its depth of flavor makes it the perfect sauce for chicken wings. If you ever buy some of those canned chipotles, save the sauce! It might just come in handy later.

9 Medium

via thespruceeats.com

When the mild is too mild and the hot is too hot, every wing connoisseur knows exactly where to land: medium. This milder hot sauce is always a crowd pleaser. Sure, it might leave some pepperheads wanting, and it might still be too much for some of the people with more delicate tongues, but its balance of heat, vinegar, and just the slightest touch of sweetness make the medium wing sauce at almost any establishment that serves them a perfect choice. Throw in some blue cheese dip and its about as close to perfection as you can get.

8 Lemon Pepper

via atlantamagazine.com

Lemon pepper wings were traditionally just a dry-rubbed wing, originating in Atlanta before becoming more popular. this is partly due to them being mentioned on Donald Glover's FX show, Atlanta, which highlighted a particular kind of lemon pepper wing: the lemon pepper wet from JR Crickets. This wing is sprinkled with lemon pepper and then tossed with buffalo sauce, which might cause the lemon pepper flavor to get lost. However, some places will serve lemon pepper wet wings coated in clarified butter, so as to enhance the flavor of the lemon pepper while still giving a saucy texture.

7 Ghost Pepper

via foodrepublic.com

It's hard to even think about the fact that the ghost pepper isn't even the hottest pepper out there anymore (that distinction now goes to the Carolina Reaper). However, don't mistake the fact that ghost peppers will seriously mess up your day. Ghost pepper wings are not going to be that much fun to eat, but in terms of challenging yourself, they are definitely something to try. Besides, ghost peppers have a unique flavor, which, yes, comes at the cost of unimaginable spiciness, but at least you could say you tried them!

6 Mango Habanero

via adashofmegnut.com

For something that has a similar heat signature to ghost pepper but won't melt your face off (figuratively speaking), why not try a mango habanero sauce? Mango habanero combines the sweetness of mango with the considerable heat of habanero peppers. sure, they may not be near the same level as a ghost pepper, but they can still deliver a significant kick of spice. However, it is at least balanced out by the smooth, subtly sweet flavor of the mango. As you can tell, a good wing sauce is really just about balancing flavors.

5 BBQ

via foodandwine.com

What's better with meat than a good old-fashioned barbecue sauce? Sure, it may often play second fiddle to the hotter or sweeter wing sauces, but depending on where you go, the barbecue wings might just be your best bet. While there are plenty of different varieties of barbecue sauce out there, they all combine the same three basic flavors: sweet, spicy, and smoky. These are balanced in very different ways depending on the sauce, but overall, that balance, no matter which way it tends to lean, is key to making bbq chicken wings so tasty.

4 Honey Garlic

tasty.com

Honey garlic is the go-to to wing sauce when you're not in the mood for something too spicy. It's got a nice balance of flavors, blending the rich savory flavor of garlic with the sweetness of honey. If you get a really good honey garlic sauce, then you'll probably also notice hints of umami from the inclusion of soy sauce and maybe even a touch of sesame oil. While honey garlic wings can vary wildly in quality, good ones can be a real trat, and a nice break from any of the spicier sauces.

3 Nashville Hot

via cookingwithjanica.com

Nashville hot chicken has always been one of the city's signature dishes, combining fried chicken with an extra spicy flour dredge with a sauce made from even more spice and fat (usually lard, but sometimes butter) to create an incredibly spicy fried chicken that can really knock your socks off. This sauce can also be applied to wings as well, and gives a little bit more of a savory flavor than just the standard hot sauce, due to the inclusion of the fat content. If the wings are coated in the spicy flour dredge, then even better!

2 Sweet Chili

via frenchsfoodservice.com

More than any other sauce on this list, sweet chili offer the most perfect balance of sweet and spicy. This wing sauce, if you can find a place that has it, has to be on your list to try. It's the kind of sauce where the flavor comes in waves. first, you're hit with a peppery sweetness, something that might remind you of fresh bell pepper. Then, at the end, you get a hit of spice from the red chile flakes. This sauce is great for dipping other foods, but as a wing sauce, it really shines, and should definitely not be left out at the table.

1 Buffalo

via johnnyfavoritesnyc.com

Buffalo wings are the original. they are the undisputed king of chicken wing flavors, and they have stood the test of time for good reason. While some wings might just utilize a hot sauce on its own, real buffalo wings are made with a combination of melted butter and hot sauce, delivering a flavor that is both savory and spicy. These are the best kind of wings to get when feeding a crowd because there is no doubt that everyone will eat them. The other nice thing about buffalo sauce is that if you are making it yourself, you can really control the flavor through the butter to sauce ratio.

Tips For The Best Buffalo Sauce

There are several variations of buffalo sauce out there. Some only use the hot sauce and butter. I prefer this homemade recipe that rounds out the flavors better and creates a beautiful rich deep sauce.

  • Frank’s Hot Sauce: It is highly touted everywhere that this is the only hot sauce you should use to make Buffalo sauce. It is even said that the original buffalo sauce that originated in Buffalo NY, was made with Frank’s. Whether that is true or not, you cannot go wrong with Frank’s. It is the perfect hot sauce to create this buffalo sauce with. If you have a different hot sauce that you love, by all means use it. If you are not sure what to use, go with Frank’s.
  • Control The Heat: Everyone has their different tolerance for heat. If you want it spicer double or even triple the cayenne pepper. If you want it more mild, reduce or eliminate the cayenne all together. Adjusting the cayenne is how you will control the heat.
  • Add Sweet Heat: If you want more of a sweet buffalo sauce, try adding honey to the recipe. It adds flavor and a touch of sweet. Start with a teaspoon or two and add more to taste.

What to Serve Your Homemade Sauce With

Homemade buffalo sauce may have started out as a wing sauce, but it is for so much more than that. Try it with any recipe that calls for buffalo sauce, like Buffalo Cauliflower or Grilled Honey Buffalo Wings.

Storing Buffalo Sauce

This sauce only gets better with time. I like making it in small batches but making a large batch is just as good. It will keep. Keep in a tightly sealed container, I like to use a jar with a screw top lid. Keep in the fridge for up to a month. Shake well before each use. If you want to warm it up, only take out what you will need and warm up in the microwave.
