Sizzling Hot Buffalo Wings Recipe
It's a buffalo wings recipe unlike any other!
Frying wings is messy, so baking the chicken is easier. To make sure this can be served in time for lunch, give yourself plenty of time! Depending on the size of the wings, this needs around 50 to 60 minutes in the oven before you put the sauce. Once wings become crispy, they get tossed in the buffalo seasoning and go back into the oven, under the broiler, until caramelized.
Here are the 3 unique and secret steps that make this recipe different from other recipes:
- 1. Sauce - What is in buffalo sauce? In other recipes, it is a simple mixture of melted butter and hot sauce. Any brand of hot sauce is fine, but in this recipe, we use Sriracha hot chili sauce and we will add a touch of honey, too.
- 2. Crispiness - The key to perfect crispness is putting the wings on a wire rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet. The rack allows air to circulate underneath the wings and allows for even cooking.
- 3. Baking Powder (secret ingredient) - Adding baking powder draws moisture to the surface of the chicken skin and helps it become crispy. You won't even taste the baking powder at all!
