Follow the simple steps below to create a batch of irresistible Buffalo chicken wings.
To start, gather the following ingredients:
For the wings:
2 pounds of chicken wings
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
For the sauce:
1/4 cup of hot sauce
2 tablespoons of honey
4 tablespoons of butter
Now, let's get cooking:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and place a wire rack over a baking sheet. This will help the wings cook evenly and allow excess fat to drip away.
In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with vegetable oil until they are well coated. Sprinkle the garlic powder, Cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper over the wings, and give them a good toss to ensure even seasoning.
Transfer the seasoned chicken wings to the prepared baking sheet, spreading them out in a single layer. This will help them cook evenly and achieve a crispy texture. Bake the chicken wings in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until they turn a delicious golden brown. To ensure even cooking, flip the chicken wings halfway through the baking time.
While the chicken wings are baking, it's time to prepare the Buffalo sauce. In a small saucepan, whisk together the hot sauce and honey over medium heat until they come to a simmer.
Then, stir in the butter and continue cooking for about 2 minutes, until the butter has completely melted and the sauce is well combined. Once the chicken wings are cooked through and crispy, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the Buffalo sauce over the chicken wings, ensuring they are completely coated.
Give the chicken wings a gentle toss to distribute the sauce evenly. Return the sauced chicken wings to the wire rack and set your oven to broil. Broil the chicken wings for approximately 3 minutes, or until the sauce caramelizes slightly, giving the chicken wings an irresistible glaze.
Finally, it's time to serve and enjoy your homemade Buffalo chicken wings! Arrange them on a platter and serve with your favourite dipping sauces, celery sticks, and carrot sticks for a classic accompaniment.
These Buffalo chicken wings are perfect for game nights, parties, or simply as a treat for yourself. Get ready to savor the delectable combination of tender chicken, spicy kick, and sweet tang that make Buffalo wings a beloved favorite.
