Make your own buffalo sauce using hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, butter, cayenne and garlic.
The butter helps cut the buffalo sauce but you can leave it out for a sharper flavour.
Store leftovers in the fridge for 4-5 days then reheat in the oven to maintain that crispy texture.
Freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen in the oven.
