I really love hot wings, even though it is considered “man food”. My husband loves hot wings as well, we like to go to Buffalo Wild Wings on occasion. Let me tell you, make this recipe and you may never feel the need to go out for hot wings again! I was surprised at how crispy the skin became after baking the chicken wings in the oven. I love anything with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, so I was jumping at the chance to make these. We both really loved these, and I will be making them again in the near future!
Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings
5 pounds chicken wings, cut into wings and drumettes (I left them intact)
salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons Frank’s hot sauce
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup flour
2/3 cup Frank’s hot sauce
1 stick butter
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco or other hot sauce (I omitted)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season wings with salt and pepper. Drizzle with Frank’s hot sauce, and toss to distribute. Drizzle with olive oil and re-toss. Toss with 1 cup flour and dredge to cover.
Line two baking sheets with foil and coat with non-stick spray. Arrange chicken wings on the baking sheets and spray with non-stick spray to coat lightly. Bake for 60 minutes, turning after 30.
Bring sauce ingredients to a boil over medium-high heat. Adjust flavor if needed. Remove from heat, toss wings with sauce and allow to cool for five minutes before serving.
