Okay, so your guests come over to watch the Super Bowl and you made that amazing Cheesy “Pull Apart” Garlic Bread I showed last post. They loved it, but now it’s approaching half time and people are getting hungry.

Did you think I’d leave you stranded now?

Here are amazing Oven-Baked Buffalo Wings that you’d swear came from a restaurant!

Let me show you how it’s done!

Here’s what you’re gonna need:

  • 16-20 split chicken wings
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (I’m using Frank’s Red Hot)

Add the cayenne to the flour

Now add the garlic powder

You can add some salt to taste at this point. Remember this is gonna be heavily sauced so you don’t need to add too much.

Is it big enough to hold a few wings? Good, then you have the right size!

Make sure the chicken is not wet. Pat it dry with a paper towel.

g3-drop-wing

Drop a chicken wing into the bag

Shake to coat and place in a greased baking pan

Repeat the process until all chicken wings are coated

Take your pan of chicken and place in the fridge to cool for an hour. This makes sure that the flour coating sticks!
