Adobo Buffalo Wings

Nothing makes me happier than discovering a wing sauce that can be used on much more than ‘just’ wings. The sauce on these adobo Buffalo wings packs some mild heat, just enough and just right. There’s a little sweetness, a little smokiness, and my favorite, a hint of soy sauce. Each bite is a wonderful combination of flavors.

Abodo Buffalo wings

The sauce on these adobo Buffalo wings is thick, thick enough for sticking to smoked or grill ribs, chicken, burgers… you name it. I’d definitely recommend doubling the sauce.

For a little more kick add more adobo, cayenne or red chili flakes. You can also substitute hot sauce for the Buffalo wing sauce, but the Buffalo sauce does add that nice traditional wing flavor.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips saved to make stock

For the marinade

  • 1 1/2 cups soy sauce
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons garlic minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

For the glaze (if tossing the wings with the glaze you may want to thin it somewhat with a little water so the glaze doesn't end up too thick)

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons peppercorns
  • 2 cups soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons dried red chili flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire
  • 6 chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce along with some of the Adobo sauce lightly chopped
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

For the glaze

  • Combine all ingredients except for the cornstarch in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and continue simmering, stirring, for 15-20 minutes.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Combine the cornstarch with water. Slowly whisk into the glaze.
  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly before pouring thru a whisk.
  • Keep warm over low heat until ready to use. If too thick stir in a little (very little!) water a time to get the desired consistency.
