Happy Prime & Wine Wednesday!
This week I am going to bring you some Buffalo NY favorites. Its food and drink related. If you like Italian sausage, wings, coffee and cappuccinos. Then this is going to be a great post for you. I am also going to teach you how to make the best air fryer chicken wings. If you are going to have chicken wings they need to be crispy, and served with blue cheese. #sorrynotsorry #noranch . I will still support and love you if you have ranch, I just may judge you a tiny bit haha :).
You can get mostly everything I mention off of amazon. Minus the wine. I actually got the platter pictured above off of amazon too.
Lets start with the Tim Horton’s items. I love Tim Horton’s or as some of us call it back home “Timmy Hos.” Tim Horton’s is technically Canadian but since Buffalo is so close to the border of Canada we just get to reap the benefits. I don’t drink coffee but all my friends back home who drink it love it. I also like their cappuccino mix they have too. You can buy both on amazon. I bet the 2 combo’d together would be pretty tasty.
My husband and I had so much fun making the wings and then the Italian sausage. It was also delicious to eat. If you like a spicy mustard, Weber’s mustard is perfect for you. Its a horseradish mustard. It tastes great on sausage. We made sandwiches with pepper, onions and sauerkraut. I definitely recommend it if you need to spice it up a bit.
Next up is the chicken wings. We made hot chicken wings and then chivettas chicken wings. Normally when I use the chivettas marinade I marinate chicken breasts over night and then I grill them. You definitely want to let your chicken marinate with this if you purchase and use it. Its a vinegar based marinade but it is so tasty. I used my air fryer to make the chicken wings because I wanted them crispy. Its the only way I like my wings. I purchased my air fryer from Target because it was on sale but I will link it below anyway in case you are in the market for one. I love mine. It is quick and easy to use. The clean up is not bad at all either. I was surprised how well the chicken wings did because this was my first time making chicken wings with it and they came out so good. I marinated the chivettas one and then I pre seasoned the ones that were getting the hot sauce from Duffs.
Pre season chicken wings with olive oil, salt and pepper and a little garlic powder. Stir and combine. Place in your air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes on each side. I noticed the chivettas ones crisped up quicker than the plain ones. After you have done both sides you can toss them in the Duffs hot sauce. If you don’t like them too hot you will need to add butter. That will take down some of the heat. I am sure the cooking time will vary depending on how big or small your wings are too so just be aware of that.
I am particular to Duffs hot sauce because that is my favorite place to have chicken wings back home in Buffalo. But you really can’t go wrong at any hole in the wall bar or pizzeria. Anchor bar is the home and origin of the Buffalo wing but I just think Duffs tastes so much better.
The wine I paired with this weeks purchase was a rose of Sangiovese from Stottle Winery here in Washington. There is a tasting room close to our apartment and I really enjoyed their wine when I went in to visit. Their grapes are grown in the Horse Heaven Hills area of Washington. It has aromas of guava, passion fruit, tart peach, strawberries, and rose hips followed by juicy flavors of nectarine, strawberry, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks post! Cheers! Please let me know if you try anything from this post or my previous posts! I would love to know what you think!
