red pepper sauce
Italian-style salad dressing
Having lived in Buffalo for the past four years, I can authoritatively state that any wing sauce containing Italian dressing is hardly "authentic." Stick to a mixture of Frank's Red Hot and butter if you're aiming for a true Buffalo taste!
Hmm. Itilian dressing? Why would you use that?
All I can say is DELICIOUS!
I have tried different recipes but this one is the best. Even better then the restaurants I have been to. I made fresh wings and breaded them in flour with paprika. I also made chicken strips and used this sauce. My husband couldn't get enough of them.
I fried chicken legs and soaked them in this sauce (prepared exactly as described using tobasco as red pepper sauce) and it was extremely hot. Not spicy but hotter than anything I've ever eaten before. Somehow it was hotter than pure tobasco sauce. I think it was the soaking. What I did was make sauce, then fry chicken, then I soaked the chicken in the sauce in the oven at 170 deg F. until I was done frying the chicken. It was so hot it hurt to use the bathroom afterwards. 5 stars for authentic taste, but don't recommend soaking chicken in it. Use it sparingly or don't use as much tobasco sauce.
I can say that I was a little "weirded" out by the Italian dressing part, BUT it really adds something to the sauce!! I think the Italian dressing MAKES it!! (That & I always use Franks Hot Sauce!!) Anyhow, I have been using this recipe for over a year now & just looked it up to use for dinner tonight. I had to leave a review since I noticed others were asking why Italian dressing was being used!! I hope this helps!! Try it - you'll like it!!
The hit of our Super Bowl! I was so proud my chicken tenders came out just like a restaurant's with this sauce. Didn't change or add a thing. I will use this often!
Very good. We enjoyed the sauce, we did cut down on the butter.
