Hot and spicy buffalo wings are baked in the oven are ultra crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

These wings are loaded with just the right amount of flavor, texture and coated with a buttery Buffalo sauce that is out of this world!

I’ve shared a few “buffalo” recipes in the past but this is by far my favorite. These buffalo chicken wings are hot and spicy and are perfect for dinner, a get-together, or simply when you are in the mood for something spicy.

They are baked NOT fried. Yes, I did say not fried! These wings are first simmered in a hot and spicy mixture then baked to perfection. Buffalo wings are actually one of the very few things that actually taste better baked!

How to Make Baked Buffalo Wings

To make these delicious wings, gather all your ingredients and being by simmering the wings in the chicken broth, hot sauce, butter, and spices.

Next, transfer the wings to a pre-heated oven and bake until super crispy on the outside and juicy tender on the inside. Lastly, return the wings to the sauce to finish off.

To make the wings a little less spicy cut the hot sauce in half and substitute the other half with marinara sauce.

Serve with a side of ranch, blue cheese, or your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!

  1. Tried this and added 1/2 t. garlic powder to the sauce. This will definitely be fam fav!

  2. Does the sauce need to be boiled? Iā€™m worried about contamination from the raw chicken.
