Mild Buffalo Chicken Wings

A very popular finger food in America, these mild buffalo chicken wings are packed with flavor and not too much heat. Traditionally, buffalo wings are often served with ranch dressing or blue cheese dipping sauce. It is also fun to serve them with celery sticks, for crunch and a cooling effect. 

Some buffalo wing recipes call for 100% hot sauce. This version is half and half with barbecue sauce, which helps pulls back the heat and gives a larger depth of flavor. This ratio can be further adjusted to your personal taste.

There is a variety of doneness when it comes to chicken wings. Possibly the best is when they hold together well but the meat easily comes off the bone. To achieve this you will need to turn the wings regularly as they cook.

Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/2 cup siracha
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Chicken Wings

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • oil as needed to fry


  • pot
  • skillet


Buffalo Sauce

  • Add to a saucepan the siracha, barbecue sauce, butter, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, and garlic powder.
  • Gently heat the buffalo sauce while whisking until the butter melts and starts to bubble, then remove from the heat. Put aside until needed.

Chicken Wings

  • In a plastic bag add the flour, salt, and pepper then mix so well combined.
  • Add the chicken wings to the flour mixture and shake well to cover. Put aside until ready to fry.
    Tip: If you don’t have access to party wings you can make them yourself by taking normal chicken wings and cutting at the two joints. The wingtips are not used.
  • Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the frying oil until about 1/2- to 1-inch deep to shallow fry the chicken wings.
  • When the oil is hot, cook the wings until golden brown and cooked through. The wings will need to be turned multiple times during this process.
    Tip: Depending on the size of the skillet this may need to be done in a number of batches. Don’t be tempted to put too many in at once, otherwise, they will crowd and pull too much heat from the oil and make them greasy.
  • Add the cooked chicken wings to the buffalo sauce and stir until well covered, serve immediately.
