My husband, my son, and my father are all obsessed with chicken wings. I grew up around them and they’re currently devoured fairly often in my home today.
A few years ago I started making non-fried versions and did a lot of experimenting. I made some with diced onions, Worcestershire, and so much more. But in the end simple really is better so I nixed all that. The recipe I’m sharing today is where I have finally landed after all that trial and error. It’s delicious.
These Oven Baked Buffalo Wings are really flavorful with a little heat.
I like to prepare these in a cast iron skillet because I can quickly brown the wings on the stove and then pop them in the oven without dirtying up another pan. (Always a plus.)
Once they’re in the oven I slather on my sauce and let the wings cook for 15 minutes. They come out, get another hearty slathering of sauce, and go back in the oven for 15 more minutes. Then they’re done! A little extra sauce (because why not) and these wings are ready to eat!
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
- 1½ - 2 lbs chicken wings (15 - 20 wings)
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- ¾ cup Frank's Red Hot Original Sauce
- ⅓ cup ghee, melted
- ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- ½ teaspoon garlic, minced
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine the Frank's Red Hot Original Sauce, ⅓ cup melted ghee, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, and minced garlic in a bowl. Stir and set aside.
- Add one tablespoon of ghee to a cast iron skillet. Heat to medium high heat.
- Once the skillet is hot add the wings. They should sizzle when added to the pan. Lightly brown on both sides. This takes approximately 4 - 6 minutes. You're not trying to fully cook your wings here, just searing the outside.
- Remove skillet from heat. Flip wings. Spread ⅓ of your sauce over the wings. Place in oven for 15 minutes.
- Remove skillet from oven. Flip wings. Spread another ⅓ sauce over the wings. Place back in oven for 15 additional minutes.
- Remove skillet from oven. Flip wings. Spread remaining ⅓ sauce over wings so they're now fully coated. Serve!
