Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

Summer has OFFICIALLY arrived in Texas and it is HOT! HOT! HOT! I literally don’t want to leave my house until after 6pm when the sun is beginning to set. Although, it’s HOT it is one of my favorite times of year. I look forward to lounging around the pool, making margarita’s at 3pm (it is 5 o’clock somewhere!) and hang out with friends.

Earlier this week I enjoyed probably my last bowl of Pho and have been craving Buffalo wings all week. I have thrown together a quick, easy recipe to make for nice at home movie night or a delicious meal for having friends over.

Buffalo Sauce Ingredients: 

  • Buffalo Sauce – Frank’s Hot Buffalo is my favorite
  • Butter
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Sauce pan
  • Tupper-ware with lid or mixing bowl


Chicken Wings Ingredients: I had plenty of time so I brined by chicken for about 3 hours so that it would be tender. Remember to dry your chicken off after you drain and rinse!*

  • Chicken Drumettes (the wings without the tips)
  • Baking Rack
  • Baking pan
  • Non-Stick Spray
  • Aluminum foil
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Tony’s


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss chicken in seasonings and allow to sit for a few mins.
  3. Line baking pan with foil, place the baking rack on top of the pan, spray with non-stick spray and place the wings on top.
    • If you do not have a baking rack, the pan will do just fine. The baking rack allows for the fat to drip in order to get a crispier wing.
  4. Chicken should bake on one side for 25 minutes until slight crispy and flip over.
  5. Bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until finished.
    • tip: I broiled mine for the last 5 minutes to get that extra crisp

While wings are continuing to bake: 

  1. Pour buffalo sauce into the sauce pan and cook over medium heat.
  2. Add about two spoonfuls of butter to cut some of the tangy taste
    • Less Vinegar taste = Add more butter
    • More Tang = Less Butter
  3. Add in seasonings to taste

After the wings are finished:

  1. Place wings in bowl or tupper-ware and pour sauce on top
  2. Shake Your bowl to spread sauce evenly
  3. Remove from bowl to prevent your wings from getting soggy
  4. SERVE!


I really hope you liked this recipe as much as I enjoyed making it!
