Buffalo Wings

buffalo wings

One of my husband’s all time favorites are buffalo wings, so I whipped up a batch this week and they made his day!  Of course, he also requested about 20 more after he ate his way through the entire batch I made!

I also assume buffalo wings are going to be very hot but my husband assured me that these were not all that hot.  So, if you like spicy kick up the cayenne pepper, chili powder, and hot sauce and your  mouth will be burning!

Buffalo Wings

Ingredients:

  • 24 Chicken Wings, Thawed
  • 1 Cup Flour (or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour)
  • 1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
  • 1/2 Cup Hot Pepper Sauce

Directions:

Note: You can add any spices or herbs that you would like this is a very adaptable recipe, if you want more spice add additional cayenne pepper and chili powder.

Begin by combining in a bowl the flour and seasonings.

Next pat each chicken wing dry, be sure to do this step because it will help you avoid the wings becoming soggy.

Dip each dry wing into the flour mixture and coat well.

Place wings on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes- 1 hour to help the flour mixture harden.

Preheat oven to 400*.

Next mix the melted butter and hot pepper sauce.

Dip the wings in the sauce until well coated and place on a baking dish. At this point, I use a wire rack.

Bake these for 25 minutes then turn over and bake an additional 25 minutes or until well done.

    I was just wondering if cornstarch could be used in place of gluten free flour. It’s used a lot in gravy so I didn’t know.

      I haven’t tried it with cornstarch so I’m not for sure, but I would assume it would work since you are just needing it for the breading.

      Karla, I make the baked sweet and sour chicken from the Life As A Lofthouse blog all the time, they are dipped in cornstarch and then egg beforw baking so cornstarch would probably work with this recipe.

    I made these the other night, and we LOVED them! We host a Bible study at our house every Sunday evening, and the dinner table was silent while everyone gobbled these up. I even skipped adding the hot sauce because we had young ones in the mix (I put hot sauce on the table as an option for the adults though!). Great flavor even without the hot sauce! Thanks so much for making me love cooking again! I was in a serious rut! :)

      So glad you enjoyed them! Great idea with the hot sauce too. I can’t handle spicy but my husband loves it. That may be the perfect compromise for us! :)

    What is hot pepper sauce?

      It’s in the sauce section at the store. There is Tabasco pepper sauce too that you can use. It’s basically any type of hot sauce that you want to use.
