Buffalo Wings

The easiest buffalo wings I have made, sauce wise. Though this takes a bit longer to make, the steps are quite easy.

First, season the wing with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then steam for one hour until cooked and let dry for a bit. Instead of roasting in the oven, like Alton Brown instructed, I decided to pan fry the chicken. Oilier, yes, but faster. It was a quick fry, about 2 minutes on each side. Then slather on the sauce.

The sauce initially called for a mix of butter, the hot sauce, garlic, and salt. I found this too bland upon application on the chicken. So instead, I put some of the sauce directly on the chicken, and it was really good. The sauce is from Indonesia, called sambal pedas. Sambal pedas is a hot chili sauce, and they even have extra sambal pedas, which is a hotter version. This was so good that on the chicken, it was already great. Drizzle this on the chicken and I was in spicy heaven. It was just right. 🙂

Sambal pedas is a sauce from Indonesia which I bought from my last trip. And we consume a lot of it eating the chicken. It was really good. I need to get my hands on it again, soon. 🙂 A refill of the pantry.
