Buffalo Wings

Buffalo wings are the ultimate bar snack. Great wings boast juicy meat, a crisp coating, and a spicy, lightly sweet, and vinegary sauce. But dry, flabby wings are often the norm and the sauce can be scorchingly hot. We wanted perfectly cooked wings, coated in a wellseasoned sauce—good enough to serve with our homemade creamy blue cheese dressing.
