The Greedy Fox Buffalo Wings

Buffalo Wings Recipe

The Greedy Fox Buffalo Wings

The Greedy Fox Buffalo Wings recipe is an absolute winner, give me 10 minutes and you will just find a bowl of chicken wing bones! We make up our buffalo sauce in batches because we use it for so much. We have on occasion bottled it and it makes for a great ‘grown up’ ketchup with a bit of a kick. A top tip for the sauce is to use the cheap stuff, the real budget supermarket ketchup. They generally use more vinegar which is perfect for this recipe.

If you”ve get friends coming round to watch the footie and boxing then these are a real winner.

A Perfect party dish to share…or not!
