B and I love buffalo chicken wings. Our favorite place to get them in the city is quite pricey. We've made them at home before and they are delicious, but very messy and I have issues with deep frying things. Well, that and adding a whole stick of melted butter to the wing sauce to coat the deep fried wings. No wonder they are delicious!
Last week, I decided to get the flavor of buffalo chicken without the fat and without having to spend a fortune!
Yesterday, I poached some chicken breasts until they were 85% cooked. I took them out and cut them into small pieces, put them into a dry skillet and added almost an entire bottle of wing sauce and cooked away until the chicken was completely done. The flavor was good, but really vinegar-y, so I drizzled a tiny amount of honey and added a small pat of butter. The flavor was perfect them. I served them on toasted hamburger buns that I had spread with Ranch dressing.
I made enough for about six sandwiches, the total cost was approximately $7 bucks! At our favorite place, wings that are not good for you will run you about $30 and you'll only get two meals out of them!!
B considers himself a buffalo wing connoisseur and he LOVED the sandwiches. That is the real test and it looks like they passed!
I'll post a picture of the sandwich later.
