My favourite way of eating chicken wings has got to be these hot and spicy buffalo wings, named so as they were created in Buffalo, New York. They are really easy to pull off at home, thanks to the oven doing the baking. Traditionally, the chicken wings are deep-fried but I simply can’t pass on the convenience of oven-baked wings.

When ordering buffalo wings outside, you get to choose the heat of the wings based on the eatery’s heat-o-meter scale, and the extreme level is usually inhumanly hot. On a scale of 1 to 10, I will rate these wings as 7 – hot but bearable so that we can still taste the flavour of the chicken and sauce. You can easily adjust the heat by reducing or increasing the cayenne pepper used. After the wings are baked, they are coated in a tangy and slightly spicy vinegar-based cayenne pepper sauce (popular brand to use is Frank’s Red Hot Sauce; see photo on page 2) mixed with melted butter. These wings were really finger-licking good and I made them regularly for my guests, to great reviews. They make for great party food, taste great on their own or as a side dish to accompany any meal.

    If I couldn’t find the sauce, is there any other substitution?

    Hi Hui Ling, if you are in Singapore, you can get the sauce at Cold Storage. As for home-made sauce, I haven’t tried it before but offhand, I think can try a concoction of sriracha chilli + tobasco + apple cider vinegar

    I dunno why I never looked this up uses so few ingredients! This could be a good money saver too, cuz wings are like $1/piece when you go out… XD I have a bottle of that hot sauce given to me as a sample on the street from the year before that’s gonna be used soon! :D

    Hi, um can I substitute Frank’s original red hot sauce with Tabasco? Because I can find it in the stores. (:

    For those looking for Frank’s Hot sauce, you can find them at cold storage, Carrefour(I always see it without fail at Plaza Singapore outlet) and Mustafa (if you want to cook the wings at 2am)

    Otherwise, great recipe! (:

    Hi, any substitution for Frank’s hot chilli? I don’t seem to able to find it in cold storage, thanks.

      Hi, Frank’s is the brand name for the buffalo sauce, and the most well-known brand. But any brand will do. I got mine from the outlet at Cold Storage, btw. I think the more gourmet supermarkets such as Jasons will also have a high chance of carrying it. Hope you find it!
