Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

By now you know that wings are a staple in our meal plans.  While I love playing around with new flavors, I would have to say that the traditional buffalo wing dipped in a cold, delicious blue cheese is my all-time favorite.  I can't make wings without making sure that buffalo is one of the options of the night.

Some of the first buffalo wings I had were fried and they were amazing!  The tender chicken, crispy skin tossed in a vinegar based hot sauce.  There's nothing better.  But let's face it.  Setting up that deep fryer, filling it with oil, cooking and then cleaning it all up.  Well.  It's just a pain.  And the lingering smell of fried whatever seems to stay around longer than anyone desires.

So say so-long to deep fried hot wings and hello to crispy, better-for-you, baked wings.  And honestly, I don't miss the fryer at all.  Actually, I love these baked wings even more.  I still get all the taste and texture of the fried wings without the guilt and extra added fat.  It's a win win!
So whether you are preparing food for a big game, need some appetizers or are just in need of a wing night.  Try these crispy baked buffalo wings out, you'll be in-love.  Guaranteed!

Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings
Ingredients:

15 Bone-in chicken wings
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 Tsp Salt

For the sauce-
1/4 Cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 Tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 Tsp garlic powder
1/4 Cup hot sauce
1 Tbsp worschestshire sauce
Dash of soy sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp mayonnaise

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375.  Place a wired rack on a rimmed baking sheet, spray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a bowl combine olive oil, salt and wings and toss to coat wings.  Place the wings on the prepared baking sheet, place in oven and bake for 45-55 minutes, turning half way through, until wings are crispy.

Meanwhile, assemble the sauce.  Place butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat to melt.  Once melted add the remaining ingredients and whisk to combine.  Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.

Once the wings are cooked remove and immediately place in the bowl of sauce and coat to combine.  Serve and enjoy.

*Your favorite buffalo sauce can be used instead of making the sauce.
