A Buffalo wing, sometimes simply called a chicken wing in the cuisine of the United States, is an unbreaded chicken wing section (flat or drumette) that is generally deep-fried then coated in a sauce consisting of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and melted butter prior to serving.[3][4][5] The Buffalo wing was invented in 1964 at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York by Teressa Bellissimo.[6] They are generally served hot, along with celery sticks and/or carrot sticks with blue cheese for dipping.

Buffalo wings have gained in popularity in the United States and abroad through the years with a number of North American restaurant chains featuring them as a main menu item. Currently, the appellation "Buffalo" is also now commonly applied to foods other than wings.[7] Some of these include chicken fingers, chicken fries, chicken nuggets, popcorn chicken, shrimp, and pizza along with a host of other items that are seasoned with the Buffalo-style sauce or a Buffalo flavor seasoning.[8]
