Singapore-Style Buffalo Wings

Brought to you by FairPrice


This National Day, whip up a dish of Singapore-style Buffalo wings with FairPrice Garlic Chilli Sauce


Singaporeans adore fried chicken wings.

Every fast food joint worth its hamburgers has chicken wings on its menu - and nowhere is the Singaporean love for them more evident than at a certain Swedish furniture store where diners at its in-house restaurant form long queues for platefuls, which they lap up with lip-smacking and finger-licking glee.

At almost any other restaurant which offers their version, we often order up a serving of Buffalo wings. Deep-fried and slathered in hot sauce, they speak to the Singaporean love for chicken wings and spicy flavours.

So, this National Day, I decided to give the American recipe a twist (Buffalo refers to Buffalo, New York in the United States, where the dish originated) by using something quintessentially Singaporean: FairPrice Garlic Chilli Sauce.

Boasting a taste that is widely accepted, it features a pairing of two ingredients popular with Singaporeans: Garlic and chilli. Its sweetness also works well with barbecue sauce.

FairPrice Garlic Chilli Sauce is Halal, making it suitable for just about everyone. So, this is an excellent National Day party snack, which you can serve to your friends and family while watching the parade.

It doesn't matter if you're enjoying it at home, in front of the television, or from a picnic basket at the parade itself.

It is a dish that is tasty, fun and delightfully Singaporean - not to mention it makes you feel deliciously patriotic!

FairPrice Garlic Chilli Sauce ($1.35, 310g) is available at all FairPrice supermarkets.

Singapore-Style Buffalo Wings

Makes 10 wings

  • 1/2 cup FairPrice Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp FairPrice Ground Pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 10 chicken wings
  • FairPrice Canola Oil, for frying
  • 1 tbsp FairPrice Butter
  • 3 tbsp FairPrice Garlic Chilli Sauce
  • 1 tbsp barbeque sauce

  1. Combine the flour, pepper, garlic salt, paprika and chilli powder in a small bowl.
  2. Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel.
  3. Put the wings into a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating each wing evenly.
  4. Place them in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 minutes. (This will help the breading to stick to the wings when they are fried.)
  5. Heat oil in a deep fryer until it starts to shimmer (you want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely - an inch deep or so, at least).
  6. Meanwhile, combine the butter, FairPrice Garlic Chilli Sauce and barbeque sauce in a small saucepan and heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well blended. Set aside.
  7. Fry the wings until they turn golden brown on both sides. Remove and set on a plate lined with paper towels to drain for about 5 minutes.
  8. Toss the wings in the chilli sauce and stir to coat them evenly. You could also use a large plastic container with a lid for this. Put all the wings inside the container, add the sauce, put on the lid, and then shake. Serve immediately.
