The Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York is home of the original Buffalo Sauce recipe.  Apparently, the bartender’s friends came into the bar and were hungry.  He asked his Mom to whip up a late night snack with the only ingredients she had – chicken wings, Frank’s Red Hot, and butter – that’s it.

Toss over wings or try this easy grilled chicken wing recipe.
