There’s not many foods I love more than Buffalo Wings… I prefer boneless, but, if cooked properly I love traditional wings as well. This works as a side, great hors d’oeuvres, potluck, dinner all by its self OR ’tis the season for tailgating. I only have a small deep fryer so it takes too long to make them in there. Also, it is messy and doesn’t leave the best smell in your kitchen. So here is how you can make these without dirtying up your kitchen.
Make sure you buy quality meat, chicken is not something you want to get cheap on… Instead buy in bulk and divide into freezer bags so they’re ready to go next time. I prefer Foster Farm’s Party Wings (these are fresh not from the frozen section).
15 Baked Buffalo Wings
- 15 raw, thawed party wings
- 2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Pinch of both Salt & Pepper
- 1/3 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Original Sauce
- 1 TBSP Adobo sauce
- 1 TBSP Honey (I use unfiltered, local honey)
- 1 tsp Ground Cumin
- 1 tsp Finely Diced Jalapeño
- 1 tsp Chopped Garlic
- 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Chili Flakes
Pre-heat your oven at 350 degrees. On a large baking sheet put a piece of aluminum foil (EASY clean up). Rinse your chicken wings and pat dry with a paper towel. Place wings on the baking sheet drizzle Olive Oil on them and a good size pinch of both Salt & Pepper. Using your hand make sure each piece is completely covered.
Place in oven and cook for 45 minutes. Half way through turn over each chicken wing so it doesn’t stick and cooks evenly.
In a small skillet pan over Medium heat, combine Frank Red Hot Sauce, Adobo, Honey, Cumin, Jalapeño, Garlic and Red Chili Flakes. Stir for 5 minutes until blended and hot. Then, brush 3/4 of the sauce on the wings, let them sit for 15-30 minutes to soak up the sauce into the skin. Brush on the remaining 1/4 of sauce and place back into oven for 15 minutes. Then…
Serve with celery and carrot sticks. Most people like to dip their wings, I don’t dip so I didn’t make it tonight… For a low-fat/low cal option mix either a Ranch packet or Blue Cheese Crumbles into Greek Yogurt.
