Once in a while, we get cravings for buffalo wings. It brings back memories of my working and dating days with the then-boyfriend-now-hubs, where we would meet for a rendezvous along Boat Quay for dinner. We still remember that at a particular American diner, we asked the server if the portion for the buffalo wing dish was big and she went, "BIG erhhhh!"
These days, we try to satisfy our craving for certain food from home as much as possible. As long as I have the mood to experiment, I will always give it a go. After all, the hubs has been my "ardent supporter" (read : no choice) for whatever I serve at the dinner table! So am glad that I got the finger-licking buffalo wings almost right for him... that is, if it had been completed with a jug of beer!
This would make a great appetizer if you have to entertain guests at home.
Preparation : 10 mins Cooking time : 30 minutes Serves : 4-5 adults
You will need :
- 10 pcs mid wings, 10 pcs drumlets
- 1.5 tbsp Masters Food multi-purpose seasoning (or just use salt and pepper)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
For the sauce :
-5 tbsp ketchup (I used this because my children are not into spicy. Or use hot sauce if you prefer a spicier version - tobasco would be good! Do adjust the portion accordingly to your liking.)

-1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar (optional)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar (or substitute with honey)

Preparing the sauce :
