One of my FAVORITE dishes is anything buffalo… I mean I go crazy for it! There is not one style I have not tried. Baked, Fried, Super Spicy or Mild and Sweet. Drenched in Whiskey or Wine. I have had them ALL! Lot’s of those recipes have come from my own experiments as some have also come from borrowed ideas.
SO… Going back to my 2nd Blog post… I LOVE ANYTHING SWEET AND SOUR! Add some kick and you have won my heart. <3 Literally!
I hope you enjoy this recipe. It’s one of my favorites that took about 2 months to get right. I prefer my buffalo style drumsticks baked instead of fried. A lot healthier.
