Contrary to it’s name, the dish has nothing to do with the animal. Buffalo wings are basically deep fried chicken wings coated with a hot sauce. One can hear a lot of versions to the story behind the invention of this dish. The most popular story is that this dish was invented in Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York and hence the name Buffalo Wings.
During our trip to US, Anchor bar was one of the must-visit places for me. J’s bestie Sachin being a foodie, made things easier 🙂 While returning from Niagara to Cincinnati, we stopped at the Anchor Bar. It was a fabulous experience. Crunchy wings coated with hot sauce (not so hot to our standards).
Yesterday when I told D that I was planning to prepare Buffalo Wings, he was pretty excited. One thing I noticed is that the ‘Hot sauce’ I bought was more on the sour side than HOT. With a bit of tweaking, the sauce turned out to be just fine. I followed the recipe of Kelly from All Recipes
