Easy Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings

Matt: "A little bit salty but overall good!" Read More


Thanks to a secret ingredient, these spicy buffalo wings are so crispy, it's hard to believe they're baked in the oven and not fried. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.


  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce (ex: Frank’s RedHot)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
    2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a roasting rack on top. Cover the rack with another sheet of foil, spray with nonstick cooking spray. Use a knife to poke holes all over the foil.
    3. Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels.

    I’ve tried different wing recipes and by far this one is the best. The are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. My son likes these better than any other recipes and they are gluten free.

    Turned out amazing! But I replaced the baking soda with just regular flour & lighted brushed it on the chicken individually instead of shaking it in a bag.

    Delicious! I added a little BBQ sauce to the hot sauce and really liked that mix.

    Very good, modified the amount of buffalo sauce used depending on the amount of chicken I wanted to be covered. Tasted good too, probably going to make some more now.

    Cooked for maybe 10 minutes longer and then let them rest in the oven while preparing sauce. The extra time left them perfectly crisp and extremely tender.

    Did not turn out crispy like it should have but I also did not have a rack to cook it on. Will try with a rack next time

    SO DELICIOUS and very easy recipe!! I didn’t have the hot sauce so I replaced it with peri-peri sauce. So good! Will make it the same way next time. At 45 mins, I flipped the wings and put them back in for 5 minutes. Next time I’ll probably cook one side for 45 mins and the other for 10 minutes. For a total of 55 minutes. For the side, I baked chickpeas (recipe from this site) to make them crispy with seasoning and I cooked quinoa using chicken stock for flavour.
