Buffalo Wings

Barbecue season (all 2 weeks of it) is back in the UK again so it’s time to brush off the cobwebs, pile up the coals and crack out the cold lager. A friend and I knew we were going to be in on Saturday evening and so we thought we’d have our own mini barbecue. I didn’t want to go to a lot of trouble so I bought a load of chicken wings and went about finding a simple marinade that I could leave them in over night from the Friday. The recipe I found was on About.com and goes by the name “Very Best Buffalo Wings” which is a challenge in itself – game on!


  • 1.5kg of chicken wings
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp Tabasco

Method of Preparation:

  1. Combine marinade ingredients together and mix well.
  2. Place chicken wings in a large resealable bag.
  3. Pour marinade over top.
  4. Turn to coat and refrigerate for 2 to 6 hours (or overnight)

    Don’t forget your veggies when you’re barbecuing!

What we’ve got here is a simple marinade that is very tasty – very best I’m not convinced but it is very good all the same. As there was only the two of us we cooked in batches, each time we basted more and more and we found that the more you can baste your chicken while it’s cooking the better it will be when it’s on your plate. Perhaps it could have done with a bit more chilli for my taste but each to their own and it would possibly have improved if the sauce had been a bit stickier by maybe using a chilli sauce instead of the powder. I’d be very interested to hear what your ‘very best’ buffalo wings recipe is.
