Buffalo sauce-injected wings. Yep, you read that correctly! Oh how many thousands of wings have I eaten? I sure do love my wings. But you know, maybe a little something was missing. Once you get inside the wing, well, there’s just chicken. Good tasty moist chicken, sure. But no sauce. What if instead of tossing my wings with sauce I injected them with it instead, kinda like injecting a pork shoulder? So I did. Buffalo sauce-injected wings are crazy good and fantastically different. Crispy skin on the outside with a burst of wing sauce in the middle. No lame wings here.

Buffalo Sauce-Injected Wings

I really enjoyed these Buffalo-sauce injected wings. It’s like I get the best of all the tastes. I get to enjoy my wing seasoning. None of it is diluted after the wing has been covered in sauce. And I get my wing sauce, and lots of it. I didn’t end up with a lake of sauce at the bottom of my plate. It was definitely a chicken wing win, and a real attention-getter at a party.

Of course, you don’t have to use just Buffalo wing sauce like I did. Any wing sauce will work, but you’ll want to try and use ones that are thin enough to make it through your injector. And don’t skimp on the injector either.

  • Place wings in a large resealable baggie or container.
  • Add the oil and seasoning. Seal and toss to coat.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Insert an injector into the bottle of wing sauce and fill the injector. Alternatively, pour some of the sauce into a tall glass and fill the injector from it.
  • Insert the end of the needle into each wing and gently push down on the plunger to fill the wing with sauce. Slowly remove the needle and inject the remaining wings. Serve.


Note: If you are using leftover sauce that has been refrigerated make sure to heat it first. You do not want to inject cold liquid into hot wings.

    1. The times I’ve injected I cooked my wings either on a grill using a Vortex or in an air fryer and I had no serious leaking of the sauce. Deep frying could be different, but I’m guessing enough would stay inside that you’d still get a good flavor. And perhaps, any that leaks into the oil would season the oil a bit too!

      If you try it I’d be interested in your results.
