The frying part is good and the sauce is good, however, the simmering part (for us, anyway) kind of ruined the dish. We like our wings crispy and this made them soggy. We'll go back to just frying, placing them in a covered container with the cooked sauce and giving it the good old shake.

These wings are great! Instead of frying, we baked them (400 degrees for 50-60 min). Also, we used "Frank's RedHot" sauce, and added a dash of Worcestershire, and about a 1/2 tbsp of honey. Good stuff!!

This is certainly the closest to what real Buffalo wings are supposed to be like on the side. The main comment I would add is that the correct hot sauce for the authentic Buffalo flavor to use is "Durkees" or "Frank's Red Hot." Otherwise, I've been told by chefs in Buffalo that margarine, not butter, is used to get the correct consistency for the sauce. Other ingredients you can add are (any or all): Tabasco to spice up the flavor, crushed garlic, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, honey, a smidgen of prepared mustard. I am in the opinin that ketchup or tomato-based sauces should not be found anywhere near Buffalo wings. But, as is, this recipe is perfectly authentic, if that's what you're after. A+
