It's all about the wings on Super Bowl
Sunday. Sure the matchup between the New England Patriots
and Seattle Seahawks
will be entertaining, and we can't wait to see what Katy Perry
and Lenny Kravitz
have in store for the halftime show, but for us, we can't watch the battle for the Vince Lombardi
Trophy without eating at least one buffalo wing. According to the National Chicken Council, over a 1 billion wings were devoured during last year's Super Bowl XLVIII
and we bet the number will be close to that again this year. To make sure your wing game is on point, Chef Sean Olnowich
, the executive chef of NYC's Bounce Sporting Club
, who has cooked for the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio
, Jonah Hill, Scott Disick
, Mario Lopez
, and pro athletes Matt Harvey, Jason Pierre-Paul, and Justin Pugh, has shared his recipe for BSC Classic Buffalo Wings. So get ready for the big game by making a batch or two.
BSC Classic Buffalo Wings:
• 1 pound split jumbo chicken wings
• 2 quart peanut or soybean oil
• 1 tsp cayenne pepper
• 1 tsp old bay spice powder
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp onion powder
• 1 tsp paprika
• 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
• 1 tsp kosher salt
• 1 cup Frank's Red Hot or other Louisiana hot sauce
• 6 oz unsalted butter, cold and cut to cubes
• 2 tbsp cider vinegar
• 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
• 1/2 tsp paprika
• 1/2 tsp cayenne
• 1/2 tsp old bay spice powder
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 1/2 tsp onion powder
• 1/2 tsp paprika
• 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
• 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1. Heat oil in a deep saucepan until a deep fry thermometer reads 375º.
2. Toss wings with spice blend and place chicken in oil, until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
3. While chicken is cooking, in a small saucepan over low to medium heat, bring the hot sauce, vinegar, worcestershire, and spices to a simmer. While whisking, add one piece of butter at a time to the sauce, waiting until the piece is completely emulsified before adding the next.
4. Take the chicken out and let the oil drain off.
5. Place into a large bowl and add sauce and toss to coat.
6. Place on a platter and top with fresh chopped
