My kitchen is usually all about quick, delicious, and most importantly kid-approved recipes – chicken nuggets, “magic” ketchup, chicken fried steak, broccoli-grape slaw and the occasional batch of resistant starch cookie dough bites.
Not this time.
Like my beloved grown-up ice cream, this buffalo wings recipe is just for those of us who know the difference between:
- callapitters and caterpillars
- Duh-boo-boo and “W”
- aminals and animals
- mustachios and pistachios
- presidents and presents
- marshpillows and marshmallows
Sure, that level of knowledge also comes with certain responsibilities, but it comes with its privileges, too. Spicy and smokey and oh-so-perfect for dipping in homemade ranch dressing, these wings are one of my husbands favorite movie night/game day indulgences. I hope you love them as much as we do!
Buffalo Wings Recipe
Buffalo Sauce Ingredients:
- 2 lbs chicken wings
- 1 tbsp aluminum-free baking powder (or you can use this baking powder recipe)
To Bake The Wings
- Preheat the oven to 250F. Place wings on a layer of paper towels and pat them dry, then transfer them to a medium-size bowl.
- Place 1 tablespoon baking powder (not baking soda) in the bowl with the wings and mix with clean hands until the powder is evenly distributed.
- Line two 12x16 rimmed baking sheets (to catch the oil) with parchment paper, then place the wings on them. Make sure there is a little space between each wing.
- Bake at 250F for 30 minutes, then increase heat to 425F and bake for an additional 40-50 minutes.
To Make The Sauce
- Melt butter and place it in a mixing bowl. Add in hot sauce and garlic and mix together.
Putting It All Together
- Add in wings and toss until thoroughly coated, then serve.
Oh, and if you love buffalo sauce on more than just wings, I highly recommend these buffalo chicken stuffed sweet potatoes.
