How To Make Baked Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wings
These buffalo chicken wings are baked to crispy perfection! It’s a lighter dish than the deep-fried ones with a smoky and spicy sauce and blue cheese dip.
Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a heat-proof wire rack inside.
Pat dry chicken wings liberally with paper towels, squeezing out as much moisture as much possible. Transfer them to a large bowl.
In a small bowl, combine the baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper together, whisking well to combine, and sprinkle the mixture over the wings. Toss wings through the baking powder mixture until evenly coated.
Arrange on rack, leaving about 1-inch of space between each wing.
Bake for 30 minutes; flip and continue to cook until golden browned and crispy.
While wings are cooking, whisk together hot sauce, butter, and sugar. Toss wings through the sauce to evenly coat.
Blue Cheese Dip:
Whisk together all dip ingredients until well combined.
Serve wings immediately with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing, and celery sticks. Enjoy!
