ONLY use FRANKS RED HOT for this recipe please! It is the reason this sauce is soooooo perfectly perfect!! My whole family freaks every time I make this. You can toss traditional fried chicken wings in it or try something new like shrimp or boneless skinless chicken tenderloins. Whatever you like "Buffalo Style" this is your sauce... I like to serve with the traditional celery sticks and bleu cheese dressing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter
  • 1 cup Frank's red hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne


  1. Bring ingredients to a boil and toss in your choice of meat (wings, shrimp etc--) to coat.
  2. Serve HOT!

This is good, but a bit salty. Next time I would make sure the wings themselves have less salt, or maybe use unsalted butter. When I bought my Frank's, I noticed they make a buffalo sauce. Wonder it that is this, pre-made?

Update - tried this again and substituted chipotle chili powder for the cayenne powder...heaven! That little hint of smokiness makes a world of difference.

very good but too much butter. I made wings for one. I only needed 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 c. Franks, and 1 tsp cayenne very tasty!

Yes. Roasted chicken thighs at very high heat to crisp skin, then slathered this on 'em and baked a little more. Yum!
