For the Baked Chicken Wings

  • 3 pounds chicken wings wingettes & drumettes
  • salt + pepper to season
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder not baking soda

For the Buffalo Wing Sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil with a wire rack on top. Spray the rack on the baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel and transfer to a large bowl. Sprinkle with approximately 1 teaspoon salt and a ½ teaspoon of black pepper, garlic powder, and baking powder. Mix well to coat evenly.
  • Transfer the wings to the prepared wire rack and bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes have passed, flip them over and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • As the chicken wings bake in the oven, prepare the buffalo sauce: In a small saucepot over low heat, melt the butter. Once the butter has melted, stir in the hot sauce, white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder. Whisk well and continue to cook until warmed through.
  • Once the wings have finished cooking, transfer to a large bowl. Add approximately ¾ of the buffalo sauce. Mis thoroughly until the wings are completely coated (use your favorite method of mixing, whether that be with your hands, wooden spoons, or shaken with a second bowl on top of the first mixing bowl).
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauces like ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, or leftover buffalo sauce. Enjoy!


  • For a spicier buffalo sauce, add a little cayenne pepper. Start with 1/2 a teaspoon and go from there.
