Adobo Buffalo Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

Nothing makes me happier than discovering a wing sauce that can be used on much more than ‘just’ wings. The sauce on these Adobo Buffalo wings packs some mild heat, just enough and just right. There’s a little sweetness, a little smokiness, and my favorite, a hint of soy sauce. Each bite is a wonderful combination of flavors.

The sauce on these adobo Buffalo wings is thick, thick enough for sticking to smoked or grill ribs, chicken, burgers… you name it. I’d definitely recommend doubling the sauce.

For a little more kick add more Adobo, cayenne or red chili flakes. You can also substitute hot sauce for the Buffalo wing sauce, but the Buffalo sauce does add that nice traditional wing flavor.

I like to make my own chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce. Making them at home lets be control (read: increase) the amount of smokiness I get.

Also try my chili garlic wings!

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips discarded

For the marinade

For the glaze

Instructions

For the glaze (note: if tossing the wings with the glaze you may want to thin it somewhat with a little water so the glaze doesn’t end up too thick)

  • Combine all ingredients except for the cornstarch in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and continue simmering, stirring, for 15-20 minutes.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Combine the cornstarch with water. Slowly whisk into the glaze.
  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly before pouring thru a whisk.
  • Keep warm over low heat until ready to use. If too thick stir in a little (very little!) water a time to get the desired consistency.

Notes

You may end up with some leftover glaze. It’s also great on ribs and pork burgers!
