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.
Blend the dry ingredients well
Pour the flour mixture into a large, resealable plastic bag
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.
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!
Internet magic and and hour has passed, let’s make the Buffalo Sauce
Pour your hot sauce into a medium sized mixing bowl
Now add the melted butter … what, you thought these were healthy?
Does it look like this? If so, you’re ready to move on to the next step!
Grab a wing and place it in the sauce. Make sure it’s totally coated with sauce!
Take the coated wing and put it back in the pan
Do it again for the next wing!
Keep on doing this …
Until all the wings are totally coated
Place in 400F oven for 45 minutes
Basically, until they look like this
Ready to go!
Place them on a plate with some carrot sticks, celery sticks, blue cheese dressing … whatever you like!
So there you have it, Oven-Baked Buffalo Wings. Just be ready to have to prove you didn’t order these in from a restaurant!
