Popular chicken wings restaurants are beloved for a reason; wings are good! But did you know how easy restaurant-quality chicken wings are to make at home in your oven? Whether you’re making them for a game day, a movie night, or a delicious dinner, give them a try! You’ll be surprised how easy these addicting wings can be.
TIP: If you’re making wings as the main protein of a meal, I suggest buying chicken drumettes as opposed to wings. Drumettes have a higher percentage of meat on them and are therefore more filling.
TIP: Throw together some of our Homemade Ranch Dressing to serve with these wings; they’re a match made in heaven!
Oven-Roasted Buffalo Chicken Wings
(Original sauce recipe: AllRecipes)
2-4 lbs chicken wings and/or drumettes
2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl until each piece of chicken is evenly coated in the oil and spices. Lay all chicken pieces on a lined baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes, or until the chicken registers at 165F on a thermometer.
For extra crunch, cook the chicken under the broiler for an additional 5 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the oven and set aside to rest while you make the sauce.
1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot® sauce
1/4 cup butter
2-1/4 tsp white vinegar
1/8 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer while stirring with a whisk. As soon as the liquid begins to bubble on the sides of the pot, remove from heat, stir with the whisk.
Pour over cooked chicken and toss well to coat evenly. Serve immediately.
