Baked Buffalo Wings- Football Friday


Buffalo wings are classic football food. I don't usually make wings at home because I don't like to fry food at home (it’s too messy). We really wanted wings last weekend while we were watching football, so I decided to bake some wings.

I used all drumettes and marinated them overnight in some hot sauce. I baked the wings until they were crispy on the outside and tossed them with a little more wing sauce. I served the wings with bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks. They were fabulous! We actually liked them better than regular deep fried wings. I have a feeling that we will be making these a lot this football season.





Baked Buffalo Wings
(Printable Recipe)

4 pounds chicken drumettes
2 cups Frank’s hot sauce, divided
½ cup butter
Bleu cheese dressing
Ranch dressing
Celery sticks

Put chicken pieces in a plastic bag. Pour 1 cup of hot sauce over wing and toss to coat. Seal bag and let marinate for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil and set rack inside. Place chicken pieces on rack and discard marinade. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip wings and cook 15-20 minutes longer, until chicken is crispy.

Meanwhile, combine butter and hot sauce in small saucepan and cook over medium heat, whisking until combined. Transfer wings to large bowl, add sauce, toss to thoroughly coat, and serve immediately with blue cheese or ranch dressing and celery sticks.

  1. I don't like to fry them up for the same reason, but this looks to be an excellent option - they sure look delicious.

  7. The only way I've ever made hot wings was through baking them. They're great!! And, not nearly as messy as the saucy kind. I love them this way.

  8. Franks sauce alone is not a true buffalo sauce, add 3/4 stick of butter and a bit of garlic! These look good, I usually grill my wings, have never fried them.

  9. The sauce does have butter in it. I just marinated the wings in plain hot sauce.

  10. Thank you so much! I thought 'wing night' had been lost forever as I'm trying to get rid of my own big wings :) But these are supremely delicious, a LOAD lower in fat than the regular ones and with just the right amount of heat to make me and hubby super happy :)
