Here I go again, making another recipe with buffalo sauce. I can’t help it, I am obsessed. If I told you that I used to not be a fan of buffalo chicken wings, would you believe me? Well… this was true. I know, crazy, right? Growing up I wasn’t a fan of anything spicy. I actually kind of hated it because I couldn’t tolerate it. As I have gotten older my love for spicy food has grown and I finally learned why everyone is so obsessed with chicken wings. They’re amazing. Finding the right kind of buffalo sauce is key to any buffalo chicken wing recipe. We may have tried making it from scratch a few times in the past, but it’s a hit or miss. You got to find a good recipe and I haven’t quite crossed that bridge just yet. So for now, I like keeping it easy and I opt for my favorite store bought buffalo sauce, Noble Made by The New Primal makes THE BEST and it’s made with clean ingredients I can stand behind. I go between their mild and medium sauce… I might be able to tolerate spicy food a lot better now, but I’m still kind of a whimp lol.
Flats or Drumsticks? What type of wing person are you?
My younger sister is obsessed with “flats”, meaning the wingette, which is the part that has the two little bones running parallel down the length. And you guessed it, it’s flat. I used to be a drumstick girl, all the way, but now there is just a kind of satisfaction that I get from eating the flats. Typically when I am making Buffalo Chicken Wings, I buy the party pack (a combination of both flats and drumsticks), but don’t get me wrong… there have been times when I request “flats only”. So good. Let me know in the comments what your favorite type is!
