What is the difference between buffalo wings and hot wings?
Buffalo wings, created in Buffalo, NY, are usually deep fried and coated in a savory sauce that has hot sauce, butter, vinegar and seasonings. However, hot wings are exactly that. The wings' seasonings include chili peppers. So, depending on how much spice you prefer, they could make your eyes water and throat burn; some say a good burn!
How to make Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings?
These wings are easily made by first combining some seasonings and coating the chicken. Cooking them on a rack on a baking tray will allow the fat to drip down and help the wings get nice and crispy. They will cook for approximately 40 minutes.
While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce by mixing the hot sauce and melted butter in a large bowl. When the wings are done, place them in the bowl of sauce and stir to fully coat each wing.
How to store leftover chicken wings?
IF you have any leftover wings, you can store them in a container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat the next day on a baking sheet in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes.
I have also frozen leftover chicken wings by placing them in a zippered freezer bag. Just push all of the air out of the bag, label with the date and store in the freezer for up to three months. To reheat the wings, thaw in the refrigerator overnight, and place on a baking sheet in a 350°F oven for about 15 minutes, or until hot.
