Hello friends! I have THE best recipe to share with you today. These crispy baked chicken wings are life changingly good! I started liking boneless buffalo wings as a teenager, but somehow never tried bone-in wings until just recently. And guess what? I totally love them! I've been looking for a fantastic recipe to make them at home (so as not to spend my entire food budget at Buffalo Wild Wings), and this recipe is it!
I got the recipe from my friend Kristin at Yellow Bliss Road, and it is a keeper! If you don't follow Yellow Bliss Road already, you definitely need to. Kristin shares delicious recipes, fun printables, awesome DIY projects, and fun little peeks into her life as a mom of two cute kids. She's one of my favorite bloggers to follow, and I am always inspired after visiting her site.
These wings are crispy on the outside, and cooked perfectly. They have really great flavor, too, and the simple homemade wing sauce is delicious!
I followed the recipe exactly as written, and they turned out perfect! They are now my husband's favorite food, and he's asked me to make them again every day since I made them. They're so easy that I think they'll be making an appearance around here quite often. Yum!
Crispy Baked Chicken Wings
2 pounds chicken wings
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoon baking powder
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cayenne hot sauce (more or less to taste)
Preheat the oven to 450. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment and spray with cooking spray. Trim the wings and cut into wingettes and drumettes. In a gallon ziplock bag, toss together the flour, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, pepper, and baking powder. Shake the wing pieces in the flour mixture to coat. Place the wings on the prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake 20 minutes, turn, and bake an additional 10-15 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the hot sauce and stir to combine. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat. Serve hot with bleu cheese for dipping.
