I am off to the States for a holiday soon and I’m sharing this recipe with you because it originates from the U.S. but the last time I had them was in Canada, in place called Hooters, a place known for their Buffalo Wings!! Served with a Blue Cheese sauce, they are a tangy, spicy winglets that go perfect with a beer!
