Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe

A buffalo wing, hot wing or wing is a chicken wing section that is traditionally fried unbreaded and then coated in sauce. Classic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce is composed of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter.

Here’s a broiled version of one of America’s favorite appetizers. They are perfect to make for Super Bowl parties or any get together.

Since Buffalo wings are traditionally served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing we've included that in the recipe below.  Make sure you have plenty of napkins on hand before digging into these delectable appetizers.

Buffalo Chicken Wings


Blue cheese dip
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Broiled chicken
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 pounds chicken wings, tips discarded if desired (approx. 18 wings)
Seasoned Butter
3 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce

1 medium bunch celery, cut into sticks

  • Preheat broiler.
  • Combine blue cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, parsley, lemon juice, and 1⁄4 teaspoon salt. Cover and refrigerate.
  • Arrange chicken wings on rack in broiling pan; sprinkle with remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. 
  • Broil 5 inches from heat source for 10 minutes. 
  • Turn wings and broil 10 to 15 minutes longer, or until golden.
  • While chicken is broiling - in small saucepan, melt butter with hot pepper sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally. Keep hot.
  • When wings are done - toss chicken wings with seasoned butter to coat all sides. 
  • Serve chicken wings and celery on a platter with the blue cheese sauce
  • Makes 18 appetizers. 
Food safety note: when cutting raw chicken it is best to use a cutting board reserved just for cutting raw chicken. Wash board and your hands thoroughly when finished. Do not let raw chicken juices come in contact with other food.
