My Cook: Chicken Wings

January 28, 2019


Your game day preparations just got a whole lot easier thanks to Suvie. Sous vide cooked chicken wings are the best way to keep your wings juicy, while our Suvie broiler makes crisping up the skin super easy. Just toss the wings in your favorite sauce and you’ll be ready for gametime. We’ve included recipes for classic Buffalo style wings, easy going Sweet BBQ wings, and spicy Jamaican Jerk wings. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the game!

Classic Buffalo Wings


  • 1-2 lb chicken wings, separated
  • Equal parts buffalo sauce and melted butter


Separate the chicken wings. The easiest way to do this is with kitchen shears. Locate the two joints and cut with the shears, or use a sharp knife to work around the joints. Keep the wing tips for making chicken stock, or discard. Season the wings generously with salt, about 1/2 tsp per pound of chicken. Place the wings in vacuum sealed bags (you will only be able to fit about 12 wing pieces per bag in the Suvie pans) and seal. Load the pans into your Suvie and cook.

Protein: LOW, 1.5 hours

Starch: 0 minutes

After the cook remove the wings from the vacuum bags. Pat dry with paper towels and return in an even layer to the pans. The wings should be spread out evenly so use both pans if necessary. Broil for 10 minutes until the wings are browned and crispy. While the wings are broiling heat up the buffalo sauce and butter, and stir to combine. Once the wings are crispy toss with the buffalo sauce and serve immediately.


Sweet BBQ Wings


  • 1-2 lb chicken wings, separated
  • Sweet BBQ Sauce


Follow the steps for the Buffalo Wings recipe but instead of tossing in the Buffalo sauce toss the wings in a sweet BBQ sauce. Return the BBQ wings to the pan and broil for an additional 5-7 minutes until the sugars have caramelized and the sauce is bubbling, serve immediately.


Jamaican Jerk Wings


  • 1-2 lb chicken wings, separated
  • 2 tbsp jamaican jerk seasoning


Before sealing the wings in a vacuum bag toss the wings with 2 tbsp jamaican jerk seasoning. If the seasoning does not have salt, add about 1/2 tsp of salt per pound of chicken. Seal the wings and cook in your Suvie. After the cook pat the wings dry and broil for 10 minutes until crispy, serve immediately.


Wine Pairing

While wine and chicken wings may sound like an odd proposition, provided you're willing to experiment it can yield some excellent results. One of the best wines to pair with spicy foods is Gewürztraminer. This wine works well when paired with buffalo wings, the sweetness will cover a little bit of the heat. For the BBQ wings, we recommend a glass of Zinfandel. The fruity notes will pair wonderfully with the smokey sweetness of the BBQ sauce. Finally, for the jerk seasoning, you can't go wrong with a good quality Rosé.
