The Original Anchor Bar Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe

The Original Anchor Bar Buffalo Chicken Wings RecipeFifty years ago, Teressa Bellissimo decided to fry up chicken wings she had set aside for soup to quickly feed her son’s ravenous friends at the family restaurant, Anchor Bar, in Buffalo, New York. Since then, Buffalo wings have, of course, made their way into American food lore.

Ingredients

  • 8–10 cups of canola or peanut oil
  • 2 ½ pounds fresh chicken wings (12–16 whole wings)
  • Optional: Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup Anchor Bar Wing Sauce
  • ¼ cup melted butter for medium spiciness, or to taste
  • Celery sticks
  • Blue cheese dip

Instructions

  1. Heat oil to 350° in a Dutch oven or other deep, heavy pan. Split wings at joint, if desired. (Either use the tips, or freeze them to make stock later.) Pat dry.
  2. Deep-fry wings, without crowding them, at 350° for 10–15 minutes, or until completely cooked (no red juices) and crispy. If necessary, fry a couple of batches to avoid overcrowding. Drain on paper towels. Anchor Bar doesn’t season its wings; if desired, sprinkle on sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Thoroughly whisk hot sauce and butter in a bowl; add more butter for a milder mix, less butter for more spice. (Anchor Bar has always used margarine, but we recommend butter or light butter as more natural options.) Toss wings in mixture until completely covered. Do this quickly so that chicken meat is still hot when served. For a lighter version, instead of deep-frying wings, bake them at 425° for 45 minutes.

To Serve

Place on a platter with a clutch of fresh celery sticks and a small bowl of blue cheese dip that’s either purchased or made fresh from a mixture of crumbled blue cheese, sour cream, a little buttermilk, sea salt, ground black pepper, finely chopped chives, and a splash of fresh lemon juice to taste.

Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip RecipeHere is another big game appetizer that is sure to please those who like a dip with a bit of a kick, a baked Buffo Chicken dip.  Lots of flavor and heat to enjoy no matter how cold the playoff game is that you are watching.

Ingredients:

  • 4-oz. room temperature cream cheese
  • 9-oz. buffalo wing sauce
  • 8-oz. bleu cheese dressing
  • 4-5 boiled, shredded chicken breasts
  • 1 yellow onion

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Boil yellow onion and chicken breasts in large pot for one hour. Pro Tip: if you don’t have time to boil chicken, use chicken in a can. You can find it in the grocery store next to the tuna fish, and, we promise, there’s nothing fishy about it.
  3. While chicken is boiling, mix buffalo wing sauce, bleu cheese and cream cheese in large bowl. Try to blend cream cheese as much as possible, but it’s okay if it’s still a little chunky.
  4. Once chicken has finished boiling, safely drain water. After chicken has cooled, use fork to pull meat away from bone and shred — using fork or your fingers — into thinner strips.
  5. Once chicken is shredded, mix with buffalo sauce mixture and pour dip into pan.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. After baking, let dip cool.

One the dip has cooled, serve it with your favorite crackers and celery sticks.
