Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup Recipe
As many of you know, I grew up in Buffalo (and still live in a suburb). Wings were invented at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo back in the 1960s. We grew up ordering pizza and wings as quick party food, comfort food, or just for dinner.
Buffalo-style wings have become so popular, that went my parents were in Singapore 15 years ago (or so), the waiter asked where they were from, they explained Buffalo, NY and they pointed to the Buffalo Chicken Wings selection on the menu!
The story takes a turn for the odd when the waiter did not realize that Buffalo was a place… I often wonder how many people think a buffalo has a wing? Anyhooo when they could not make him understand that Buffalo was the location the recipe was named after, and not a part of an animal, they finally told the waiter they were from “Niagara Falls”, and he was satisfied.
About 25 years ago or so, a local restaurant: Danny’s, started making Buffalo-style Chicken Wing Soup. It was a smash hit! For years they were the only place around you could get this type of soup. Danny restaurant buffalo chicken wing soup recipe is something a lot of locals seek out! Danny’s would serve Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup on occasion as one of their four soup and salad bar offerings. Apparently, they heard from their patrons just how well-loved it was because it is a regular offering.
If you mention Danny’s Restaurant to anyone local, they all say, “OMG Danny’s Chicken Wing Soup!!” and start to drool. Yeah, it is that good.
And, Hubby’s recipe is better. Take it from a Buffalonian who grew up eating wings and loving Danny’s chicken wing soup, this Buffalo chicken wing soup recipe is phenomenal!
