A buffalo wing, hot wing or wing is a chicken wing section (drumette or flat) that is traditionally fried unbreaded and then coated in sauce. Classic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce is composed of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter. Buffalo wings are traditionally served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.

Preparation
Cayenne pepper hot sauce and melted butter or margarine are
the basis of the sauce. Buffalo wing sauce can be made with a
variable amount of heat/spiciness, with the names of these
sauces generally corresponding to the level of heat, such as
mild, medium, or hot. Typically, the wings are deep-fried
(although they are sometimes grilled or baked). The wings are
usually fried in oil until they reach close to a golden brown color.
They are then drained where they can either be placed in a bowl
with sauce or even seasoned with salt and pepper. Following
this, one covers the bowl tightly and shakes to coat the wings.
As an alternative to waiting to coat the wings until after they are
cooked, one can also put seasoning over the wings in a sealed
bag and shake them until they are coated evenly. Afterwards,
arrange the wings on a baking and wait until they are cook
thoroughly. Wings can then be served dry with sauce on the side.

History
There are four different legends about how Buffalo wings came
to be. The first story is that Buffalo wings were first prepared at
the Anchor Bar, located at 1047 Main Street (between North
Street and Best Street) in Buffalo, New York, United States on
October 30, 1964, by Teressa Belissimo, co-owner of the Anchor
Bar with her husband Frank Belissimo. Upon the unannounced,
late-night arrival of their son, Dominic, with several of his friends
from college, Teressa needed a fast and easy snack to present
to her hungry guests. It was then that she came up with the idea
of deep frying chicken wings (normally thrown away or reserved
for stock) and tossing them in cayenne hot sauce. While the
wings were deep frying, Teressa decided to serve left over celery
sticks with blue cheese to her son and his friends to tide them over.

A second version, as told by Dominic Bellisimo (Frank and Teressa's son) to The New Yorker reporter Calvin Trillin in 1980, stated: "It was Friday night in the bar and since people were buying a lot of drinks he wanted to do something nice for them at midnight when the mostly Catholic patrons would be able to eat meat again." He stated that it was his mother, Teressa, who came up with the idea of chicken wings.

The third version of the origin involved a mis-delivery of wings instead of backs and necks for making the bar's spaghetti sauce. Faced with this unexpected resource, Frank Bellisimo says that he asked Teressa to do something with them.

The fourth version has nothing to do with the Bellisimos or the Anchor Bar. Calvin Trillin stated in his 1980 New Yorker article that a man named John Young also claimed credit for serving chicken wings in a special "mambo sauce". Chicken wings in mambo sauce became the specialty at his Buffalo restaurant in the mid-1960s. Young had registered the name of his restaurant, John Young's Wings 'n Things, at the county courthouse before leaving Buffalo in 1970.

How To Plan A Buffalo Wing, Chicken Wing, Hot Wing Party!

1) - Plan A Wing-It Theme Party
Everyone crows about a "Wing It Party" so why not host one. A wing it
party is just that; it's a food party that's based on chicken wings in all
kinds of flavors. You can choose to host a potluck party where each guest
brings a crock pot full of their favorite wings in their favorite wing sauce or
you can set up a buffet where you provide all the sauces and toppings.
Flavors such as, hot sauce, barbecue, honey mustard, teriyaki are just a
few of the choices. Topping would be spices or shakers of Parmesan
cheese.

2) - Don't forget the sides & dressing:
A wing it party wouldn't be complete if it didn't have the traditional raw veggies and dressing with it. Not only serve raw celery and carrots but why not serve bell pepper, broccoli and cauliflower too. All of these go great with salad dressings.

3) - Provide Dessert
Oh yes! Every party is expected to have dessert. It doesn't really matter what you go with.... cupcakes, cookies or pie to name a few and all will work just fine.

4) - Games, Activities, Gift Giving & Door Prizes
Decide if you want to play any games or provide any activities at your wing it party. You may just want to host a pig out where no games are played but tons of food is provide for a real wing it pig out. If yo don't have games you may want to at least give a door prize to one lucky winner. It could be something as special as a bottle of homemade BBQ sauce to something as simple as a chicken stuffed animal.

5) - Added Fun
For added fun you could meet all your guests at the door in a chicken costume! Oh yeahhh I said it! Are you brave enough to do it? Don't forget to do the chicken dance. Speaking of chicken dance.... why not have all your guest do the chicken dance. It's fun for all ages.
