3 to 4 servings

Ingredients

For the chicken marinade:

  • 8 chicken wings
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced

For the breading mixture:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the buffalo sauce:

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons hot sauce

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the breading ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, marinate the chicken wings with fish sauce and lemon juice for 2 hours (or up to a day).
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, dip each piece of marinated chicken into the bowl of the breading mixture so that it is well covered.
  4. Fry the chicken wings in batches.
  5. Line a plate with paper towels, or use strainer and a bowl, to drain the excess oil. Set aside.
  6. In a different pan, heat a small amount of oil. Add butter and hot sauce.
  7. Allow it to simmer. Once it begins to bubble, immediately turn off the heat.
  8. Quickly toss the breaded chicken in the buffalo sauce mixture.
  9. Serve while still hot.

Tips and Techniques

  • Be careful when adding hot sauce. Certain brands are spicier than others! Add the hot sauce little by little and check for taste.
  • Pair the buffalo chicken wings with vegetable sticks or rice.
  • Rather than using lemon juice in the marinade, try lime or calamansi.
  • Maintain the oil temperature by frying the chicken wings in batches.
  • Buy store-bought chicken breading for easier preparation.
