Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are sharing with you our hometown favorites. Well I currently live in Northern California, but I am originally from Buffalo, NY.  So today I thought I would share with you a Buffalo favorite and I bet you can guess what that is,  Chicken Wings!  That is one thing I miss from Buffalo is chicken wings, pizza, roast beef, sponge candy and good old Italian restaurants.  One thing Buffalo has going for its self is the food.  I’m drooling thinking of it.  It’s worth trip to good old Buffalo just to eat. Just don’t do it in the winter time as you may know they get their fair share of snow.  That is one thing I do not miss!  So today, I am taking my Buffalo favorite and healthifying it a tad bit by baking my chicken wings.

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings #SundaySupper

I have grilled chicken wings before, but I never baked them.  I have to say they turned out juicy, crisp and simply perfect.  I couldn’t stop eating them.  I was a little concerned that baking them, that they would lose all of their chicken wing charm, but it didn’t.  I can’t believe they actually turned out crispy.  For baking them, I placed them on a baking rack on my baking sheet.  Here is an Instagram shot I took of the wings before they went in the oven.  For the hot sauce I used Franks Hot Sauce.  That to me is the original sauce for chicken wings.  When I was 18 I used to work in a pizzeria and we used Franks Hot Sauce for the wings.  It’s the only way to go!

The recipe is so easy and is only 3 ingredients; butter, hot sauce and chicken.  I bought my chicken with wing and drumstick attached.  Just cut the wing with kitchen scissors between the wing and drumstick and cut the wing tip off.  So easy, it took like 2 minutes to do this.  For the calories, it is less than what I am sharing with you.  I threw out the wing tips and I know that the calories are different between the wing and drumstick.

To make the wings I just placed them in my broiler and cook for 12 minutes, flip and cook for another 10 minutes, until crispy.  No greasy mess and no smelly fried foods.  I hate the smell of fried foods.  I will bake whenever I can.  Plus honestly, I can’t eat friend foods anymore, except french fries, it just doesn’t agree with me.

Traditional Buffalo Chicken Wings made healthier by baking and not frying. Made with Franks Hot Sauce and butter. The perfect appetizer!
Ingredients
  • 1¼ lbs. chicken wings (12 wings including drum sticks)
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • ½ cup Franks Hot Sauce
Instructions
  1. In a microwave safe bowl (I found a Pyrex measuring cup works great), melt butter; approx 45 seconds. Stir in hot sauce and mix until well combined.
  2. Place chicken wings in a bowl and add half of the hot sauce mixture. Reserve the remaining sauce for coating at the end. Let the wings sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler.
  4. Place a piece of aluminium foil on a baking sheet, and spray with cooking spray. Add a baking rack over the baking sheet,and spray with cooking spray; add the chicken wings. You do not need the baking rake, but I found it works best so the oil can drip onto the baking sheet, but it is not necessary.
  5. Place the chicken in the oven and broil for 12 minutes, flip and broil for another 10 - 12 minutes, until the skin is crispy.
  6. Re-heat the hot sauce until warm; about 30 seconds. Coat the chicken in the remaining hot sauce. Serve hot with blue cheese and celery.
Notes
Please note, that I clipped the wings and the calories are less than what is in this recipe. I tried to calculate it the best I can on this one.
