Perfectly tender, spicy and juicy, these world-famous and delicious wings are one of my firm favourites! I prefer oven-frying these (which basically means I bake them on a greased tray and lightly spray or brush oil over them) as opposed to the more common regular frying, so they are relatively healthier without any compromise on the amazing taste!!

Ingredients for Buffalo Sauce
- 4 tbsp. butter or oil
- 1 tbsp. honey or brown sugar
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup water

Prepare the Buffalo Sauce while chicken is baking
For the Chicken Wings
When ready to cook, preheat your oven at 180 C.
Take a big plastic bag, add half a cup of all purpose/plain flour into it. Drop the wings into the bag in 2-3 batches, and shake until the flour coats all the wings perfectly.
Remove the wings and place them on a greased tray. Lightly spray the wings with some oil. You can also use a brush and brush the wings lightly with oil.
Bake for about 25 minutes. Remove and turn the wings. Put them back in the oven and bake for another 25 minutes.
For the Buffalo Sauce
Heat the oil or butter. Add garlic and stir fry until fragrant. Add all the other ingredients and simmer until thick and saucy. Adjust to your taste and consistency.
Once the wings are ready, toss them in this sauce and then spread them out on the tray for a few minutes to absorb the flavor and cool slightly.
Serve and Enjoy!! 🙂
