Buffalo Hot Wings-Anchor Bar Style

"These are the best hot wings IMHO. I don't like my hands to be really sloppy and the trip through the oven after frying solves this. Add as much heat as you like. I prefer the flavor of Red Hot sauce, but use your favorite. Add some Cayenne pepper to kick it to your desired heat level. Serve with my blue cheese dressing. Serves one hungry wing-lover or up to 4."

    Delicious! I gave mine a thin coating of corn starch before I fried them just to form a thin crust and they were very very good. Thanks for the recipe! :)

    I got this exact recipe about 20 years ago printed in my local paper in Los Angeles stating that these wings were the real thing. I dunno about the real thing, but damn good and I have been making these wings ever since. I just absolutely love this recipe. The one thing that really puts it over the top to me is the vinegar that gives the sauce a nice flavor. I ordered Anchor's wing sauce years ago to compare and I actually like mine better...go figure.

    These were perfect! DH loves his hotwings and beer but is laid up and can't get out to his favorite pub. Never made these before but wanted to give him a treat.. He said best he ever tasted. These and a 6 pack = heaven. And we live in Buffalo! Thanx for posting...

    Made this recipe for our non traditional Christmas dinner. It was finger lickin' good! I did find that the skin on the first batch of wings I took out of the oven softened up a bit, so I turned up the heat to 400 degrees and cooked the second batch 18 minutes...they came out crispy and perfect! Thanks for posting your recipe.

    I signed up at recipezaar just to rate this recipe. These wings are great! I didn't vary a thing from this recipe. A friend of mine told me there are no good buffalo wings in NJ, and he indicated that "authentic" buffalo wings require a 2-step cooking process..frying then baking. He noted the true, original anchor bar wing recipe included Frank's. I was curious, so I google'd and found this recipe. I never been to Anchor Bar, but I cannot imagine their wings beating this recipe. Like I said, great recipe; not too much heat, but plenty of flavor. Thanks
