Authentic Anchor Bar Buffalo Chicken Wings

This is the original spicy Buffalo chicken wings recipe from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. You can adjust the heat by adding more or less cayenne and Tabasco. There are many Buffalo chicken wing recipes out there, but if you want to taste the "real" thing give this a try. The chicken wings are deep-fried in the original recipe, but the hot oven works fine for the home version. Makes 6 Servings of Buffalo Chicken Wings (6 per person)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. If necessary, cut whole wings into two pieces. In a bowl toss the wings with the oil, and salt. Place into a large plastic shopping bag, and add the flour. Shake to coat evenly. Remove wings from the bag, shaking off excess flour, and spread out evenly on oiled foil-lined baking pan(s). Do not crowd. Bake for about 20 minutes, turn the wings over, and cook another 20 minutes, or until the wings are cooked through and browned.
  3. While the wings are baking, mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a pan, and over low heat bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and then turn off.
  4. After the wings are cooked, transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over the hot wings and toss with a spoon or spatula to completely coat.
  5. These are always served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the side.

These were quite delicious and I really liked that I didn't have to fry them to get the crispiness we love. I think I over floured a bit ~ or didn't shake enough off! Overall, a very lightly breaded delicious tasting wing. I used mild wing sauce as I made these for a family luncheon, but everyone enjoyed them completely. Thanks Firems911 for a keeper wing recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2009.

oh YES!!!!! I have been looking for this recipe for years! Thanks for posting! I ate wings at the Anchor Bar many a night while I was college student at SUNY Fredonia and when I was doing research at SUNY Buffalo. I actually had to sign a disclaimer to order and eat their suicidal wings- YUMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! I now live in the south and believe me when I say, they have NO idea how to cook Buffalo wings down here...NONE! THANK YOU! WOO HOO!!!! :D
