Check Out: Chicken Wings Recipes

My favourite way of eating chicken wings has got to be these hot and spicy buffalo wings, named so as they were created in Buffalo, New York. They are really easy to pull off at home, thanks to the oven doing the baking. Traditionally, the chicken wings are deep-fried but I simply can’t pass on the convenience of oven-baked wings. When ordering buffalo wings outside, you get to choose the heat of the wings based on the eatery’s heat-o-meter scale, and the extreme level is usually inhumanly hot. On a scale of 1 to 10, I will rate these wings as 7 – hot but bearable so that we can still taste the flavour of the chicken and sauce. You can easily adjust the heat by reducing or increasing the cayenne pepper used. After the wings are baked, they are coated in a tangy and slightly spicy vinegar-based cayenne pepper sauce (popular brand to use is Frank’s Red Hot Sauce; see photo on page 2) mixed with melted butter. These wings were really finger-licking good and I made them regularly for my guests, to great reviews. They make for great party food, taste great on their own or as a side dish to accompany any meal.

    Great! I liked that it was baked instead of deep-fried and also I have an unopened Frank’s red hot sauce waiting for me to use it! Bookmarked!

    I usually enjoy nibbling the end tips for any type of baked or fried wings. Sometimes the entire end tip is so crispy that I can just chew and swallow the entire tip (bones included!) :O

    Yummy … one of my fav buffalo wings. I think I can eat 1/2 dozen at least. Love it espcially if it is spicy and sticky.
