Buffalo Chicken Wings Sauce

This is the sauce that Buffalo, NY’s famous Anchor Bar uses to toss their chicken wings in. There are endless versions of this sauce, but the root is typically Frank’s Hot Sauce and melted butter. Try it with MHT’s Baked Buffalo Wings.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce

This easily made sauce is hot and tangy. The MHT version is pretty close to the original Anchor Bar sauce that made this style of wing famous. Toss the sauce and cooked wings together in a large bowl to make Buffalo Chicken Wings or serve on the side for dipping chicken fingers and roasted vegetables.
