I can honestly say that these are the best Buffalo Chicken Wings that I have ever made and I would put them against any restaurant’s recipe and feel confident that they’d hold their own. They’re succulent, tender, very juicy with a great texture and the Buffalo sauce is amazing. The best part is that they’re really easy to make, too.
My Buffalo Chicken Wings secret
One of the smartest things you can do for your Buffalo Chicken Wings is add Brining. I show you how to do this in my Grilled Chipotle Chicken Wings recipe and it makes all the difference in the world. The video tutorial in that recipe also shows you how to easily cut the wings into drum and flat portions. I recommend that you take a look at if you’re needing to freshen up on your butchery skills. Plus someone told me that they won a wing competition using my recipe so, it really might be worth your while. And my Wasabi Chicken Wings are to die for, just sayin’!
Brining is just a simple process of adding more flavor to the meat that otherwise wouldn’t be there. I just use a simple salt water brine that keeps the poultry juicy through every bite. I also toss the wings in potato starch and give them a light dusting to add texture to the skin after the wings are fried. You can use corn starch instead, if that’s all you have. My secret ingredient in the sauce is my Blackened Seasoning recipe and it takes this recipe to a whole new level. Also, if dipping is your thing, you should try my Blue Cheese Dressing recipe. I guarantee, it’ll be the best you’ve ever tried.
Buffalo Chicken Wings Ingredients:
12 Wings, cut into drums and flats(24 peices in all)
These Honey Chipotle chicken Wings are, by far, the best wings I have ever had. They are sweet and savory, they are crispy and spicy yet incredibly tender and juicy on the inside. They have best flavor of just about any barbecue sauce and we’ll talk about the secret to that in just a minute. But I definitely think that the grilling definitely takes this recipe to a whole new level. But don’t let that scare you if you don’t have a grill. I think these spicy buffalo style wings would still be absolutely fantastic fried in oil or baked in the oven.
Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings Sauce
This Chicken Wing Sauce is phenomenal. I mean it. I’t fantastic. My secret for this recipe is definitely in the sauce. I use Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce to start, then I add a couple of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce and a fresh clove of Garlic but it doesn’t end there. Since it’s got that pepper spice I balance it out with Tequila and Lime. Now, of course, the Tequila is optional but the lime is definitely essential because it adds that Mexican style flavor everyone loves in their Mexican food. But if you’re not shy, I highly recommend following this recipe to a “T” and add that Tequila. It takes this Honey Chipotle Chicken Wing Sauce to whole new level.
Make No Mistake, this Wasabi Chicken Wings Recipe is the one you’re looking for, no doubt about it! It is absolutely incredible and it site in my top 3 chicken wing recipes of all time, they’re that good. The flavor the soy, in the tempura dipping sauce, brings out with all of the other common Asian ingredients is just incredible. The Bonito flakes(dehydrated Skipjack Tuna) just takes it to a whole new level but it’s like icing on a cake and it just shouldn’t be prepared without. If you’re looking for a well balanced Wasabi Chicken Wing recipe, I highly recommend this one because there is nothing wrong with it and I’ve got nothing but good things to say.
I do have a few other wing recipes if you want some more options. I even think that my Buffalo Hot Wings recipe is the BEST I’ve EVER had and I think you’ll agree, once you try my Blackened Seasoning. I also have an amazing Blue Cheese Dressing recipe, if you’d like to try it. I’ve got a fan that claims he’s bottling my recipe and selling to his local restaurants, near by.
1 oz Tempura Dipping Sauce
1 oz Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tbsp Honey
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tbsp Wasabi
1 Green Onion, chopped scallions
1 tsp Bonito Flakes
Fry the Wings at 350 degrees for 8 to 12 Minutes. You want the chicken to float to the top and turn golden brown. Baking is another option if you don’t want the oil. Be sure to salt the wings before baking or after frying. Mix all the wet ingredients together, then add to the cooked Chicken Wings. Add the Scallions and then give them a good toss in a large bowl. Plate and sprinkle the bonito flakes evenly across the top of the Wasabi Chicken Wings.
