Buffalo style Wings

It is time again for the “Secret recipe club” reveal!  I am sure you all know what the club is about, but for the few of you who still don’t know about it, here goes a brief explanation.  It is a great concept… each month you are assigned a participating food blogger to make a recipe from and in turn someone else will be assigned your blog.  All you have to do is choose a recipe, make it and blog about it on the specified date.  The only rule is to keep it a secret!  If you are interested in learning more, or want to join the club, please visit the Secret recipe club website.
This month’s assignment was another very exciting one for me as I was lucky enough to be paired with Mary Anne and Mariel of Feast on the Cheap!  Mary Anne and Mariel define themselves as “a mother-daughter duo starring a professional caterer and a fledgling foodie”.  So you understand how happy I was to have the possibility to choose from one of the delicious recipes featured on their blog!  In the end, I made their Buffalo Chicken Wings as I have always been intrigued by the Buffalo wings I see everywhere in the blogosphere and this recipe did not call for any hot sauce (which I would not know where to find here in Sydney).  They were good, though I believe I overcooked them a little.  Also, these are not spicy… so feel free to increase the amount of cayenne pepper or add a little Tabasco to the marinade if you like hot wings.

Thank you so much for a delicious recipe Mary Anne and Mariel!  Please, make sure you drop by Feast on the Cheap and check out their beautiful site!

Total time
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1.8 kg – 4 lbs. chicken wings
  • 1 ½ tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 ½ tbsp paprika
  • 1 ½ tbsp allspice
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • ½ tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 ½ tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 tbsp white or cider vinegar
  1. Combine the spices, vinegar and brown sugar in a big bowl.
  2. Add the chicken wings and coat them well with the mixture. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the wings for 4 to 6 hours.
  3. Arrange the chicken wings on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper.
  4. Broil them in a pre heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 10 minutes, then turn the wings over and broil the second side 10 minutes. Continue turning and broiling in 5 minute increments, draining off the fat as you go, until the wings are golden and crispy.
I think I over cooked mine a bit as the original recipe did not say how hot the oven had to be and I broiled the wings at 200°C – 390°F. So, be careful and adjust the temperature and cooking time to your oven.
