Sweet N Spicy Buffalo Wings

Alex Fernandez

Buffalo wings are tasty delicious pieces of chicken wings that are typically breaded and fried and then coated in a combination of flavors. Some common ones Americans love today include hot, mild, and BBQ flavored wings. Buffalo wings originated from NYC and were created by Teressa Bellissimo in 1964. Legend has it that a group of her son’s friends entered their family owned restaurant called Anchor Bar where Bellissimo made them chicken wings for the first time. At the time chicken wings were only used to make chicken stock for soups. Bellissimo finished her creation by covering the wings in her signature spicy sauce.

Bellissimo’s wings became an instant success, the more modern take on it is that the wings are typically fried. In this article we have what can only be described as the perfect matching of sweet and spicy.
