How to Make Sauce for Buffalo Wings


Buffalo wings are a popular sports bar food staple enjoyed by many Americans. Although fried chicken wings are the foundation of an excellent buffalo wing, the sauce is key. Many people simply buy a bottle of buffalo wing sauce from the grocery store or favorite wing joint, but it is easy to make your own homemade wing sauce. Toss with cooked chicken wings or even chicken tenders and serve alongside crisp celery and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping.
