Hot Wings Recipe -Crispy Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings

Make a spicy hot wings recipe at home. You can bake crispy wings for a healthier version of your favorite wings recipe, and a Buffalo sauce is super easy to prepare. I usually buy the whole wings and cut them up at home, but you can buy bags of chicken wings already cut up into drumettes and wingettes. I bake spicy wings and toss half of them in a hot Buffalo sauce and leave the other half unsauced for a little variety.

What You Need to Make This Hot Wings Recipe

1 tsp SALT
…but really, use whatever spices you like

Ingredients For Buffalo Hot Wings Recipe Sauce

¼ cup BUTTER
¼ – ½ cup HOT SAUCE
1-3 Tbsp HONEY

How to Make Crispy Chicken Wings In The Oven

I generally remove the skin from chicken, but not when I’m having wings; that crisp cooked skin is what makes wings so tasty. Buy your wings already cut up, or cut the up yourself at home. They’re not difficult to process at home, just cut easily between the joints, and be sure and save the wing tips to use for a chicken broth.

1) Pat chicken pieces dry with a paper towel and set aside
2) Combine the baking powder and seasonings in a bowl and mix together well
3) Toss the wingettes and drumettes with the dry coating
4) Arrange the chicken pieces on a wire rack over a baking pan and place in oven preheated to 425 degrees F
5) Cook wings for 50-60 minutes, turning every 20 minutes until crispy and done.

While the wings bake, make the sauce.
A classic Buffalo chicken wing sauce is easy to prepare.

1) In a sauce pot, melt butter
2) Add an equal amount of hot sauce to the pot, or more if you like your wings spicier
3) Throw in a splash of worcestershire sauce
4) And for sweeter wings, add honey to taste
5) Mix well and heat through

A classic Buffalo chicken wing sauce is easy to prepare.

I like my spicy wings right out of the oven, just the wings and crispy skin, but I like them tossed in Buffalo sauce, too, so I usually sauce half and leave half unssauced.
You can follow your own heart.
To sauce the wings, simply combine the wings hot out of the oven and the sauce hot off of the stove into a bowl and toss.
And a creamy blue cheese or ranch dressing makes a nice accompaniment.
And that’s it!
Give this hot wings recipe a try let me know what you think, and bon appétit!

  1. I have use your chicken wings recipe and they came out really good, thank you for all your recipes. I would like to know if you can incorporate Hispanic food to your dishes..

  2. These are the best wings!! Making them again tonight, the house smells amazing! used Vickis Veggies smoked paprika (rather than the typical) and a dash of cayenne, otherwise stuck to this recipe, love it! Vickis smoked paprika is fabulous. She has a veggie stand in Black River (Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada). If you ever have the chance to pick up some, do! All of the ingredients are from her farm. Chef Buck I will never eat wings in a restaurant again.

  3. Thanks Chef Buck! this one was so good and easy to cook.
    They’ve all enjoy it too..
    Hope you make more Chicken Recipes and post it on this website to give it a try. Happy cooking:-)
