  • Dor Blue or Gorgonzola cheese: Dor Blu or Gorgonzola cheese brings a bold and unique flavor to the sauce. 
  • Cream and Milk: Cream and milk are essential ingredients that give the sauce its rich, velvety consistency. They also help balance the strong flavors of the cheese and white wine.

How to Make Crispy Buffalo Wings at Home?

  1. First, cut the wings along the phalanx; if there is a third phalanx, just cut it off and throw it away. Marinate with salt, and half the volume of spices (pepper, coriander, dried garlic). Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Then, cut the carrots and celery into long strips, and the chili into slices. Dice the cheese.
  3. Mix the starch, flour, and remaining spices in a large bowl.
  4. To make the sauce, bring the wine to a boil in a saucepan. Add the Dor Blue cheese. Cook until the cheese begins to melt. Then, add cream and milk, and cook until the cheese is completely melted.
  5. Add the whole garlic clove, salt and pepper. After 5 minutes, remove the garlic.
  6. Place a saucepan of sunflower oil (sunflower oil should fill half the saucepan) on the stove. Bring to a temperature of 356 F degrees (180 C).
  7. Dip the wings in the flour and spices. Then start frying them in the oil for 5-7 minutes until the crust is crispy and golden (it is better to divide this amount of wings into 3 parts and fry each part separately). 
  8. Place the wings on a paper towel. 
  9. To prepare the glaze, in a large frying pan, add sweet chili sauce (if the sauce is thick, add 1,8 ounces (50 g) of water) and fresh chilies. Add the fried wings to the glaze. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the glaze covers all the wings.
  10. Place the wings, carrots, celery, and Dor Blues sauce separately.

Chef Recipe Tips:

  • You can add butter to the glaze. This will make the wings taste richer.

Store advises

You can store buffalo wings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When ready to eat, reheat leftover wings in the oven or air fryer to keep them crispy.

Can Buffalo Wings be Frozen?

Yes, you can freeze your buffalo wings for easy appetizers or dinner on the go. To do this, place them in an airtight container or zip-top freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

This chicken wings recipe has both positive and negative aspects from a health perspective. The positives include the use of vegetables such as celery and carrots, which enrich the dish with vitamins and minerals. Additionally, the use of spices adds flavor without adding extra calories or sodium. However, there are some drawbacks. Firstly, frying the wings in oil increases their calorie and saturated fat content. Secondly, the glaze for the wings contains a sugary sweet sauce, which significantly raises the simple carbohydrate content in the dish. Thus, while these wings can be a tasty treat, I cannot recommend them as a healthy dish due to their high fat and sugar content. I suggest removing sugar from the sauce and frying the wings in less oil or trying alternative cooking methods to make the dish healthier.

Watch How To Make It

When frying the wings, ensure the oil is hot enough before adding them to the pan. This helps seal the exterior quickly, preventing them from becoming greasy. To test if the oil is ready, drop a small piece of bread or a wooden chopstick into the oil. If it sizzles and bubbles vigorously, it's ready for frying. Also, don't overcrowd the pan to maintain an even temperature and ensure crispy results. Fry the wings in batches if necessary, giving each ample space to cook evenly. With these tips, you'll achieve perfectly crispy wings every time!
