Original recipe makes 8 servings
- 2/3 cup hot pepper sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot®)
- 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt to taste
Combine the hot sauce, butter, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt in a pot and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer while stirring with a whisk. As soon as the liquid begins to bubble on the sides of the pot, remove from heat, stir with the whisk, and set aside for use.
Toss the grilled, fried or baked chicken wings in a large bowl with the buffalo sauce until thoroughly covered.
Serve with your choice of an optional ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, and/or cut celery sticks.
