Without question, this is my appetizer and beer snack. If you love traditional Buffalo wings, and the crispiness of a traditional egg roll, I can’t see you not loving this.
If you have your own favorite Buffalo wing recipes (i.e. add a light dusting of flour to the chicken), do what you will to the chicken. Either way, you can’t go wrong!
