Crispy buffalo chicken wings are baked, not fried, using one ingredient to fool any deep fried buffalo wing fan!

These Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wings are exactly what they claim to be. C.R.I.S.P.Y. Without deep frying? WHAT IS THIS MADNESS! Using a special ingredient you have in your kitchen pantry already! Tossed in a delicious Buffalo Sauce, these wings are a hit and a reader favourite!

Buffalo chicken wings

This extremely popular creation came out of a New York restaurant in the 60’s by Teressa Bellissimo, who covered them in her own special sauce and served them with a side of celery and blue cheese. Since then, Buffalo wings have become the quintessential game day food in the United States served at bars, restaurants or ordered as take out.

Of COURSE this recipe includes serving them in a Blue Cheese Dressing (or Ranch dressing).

These wings were not only a hit at the dinner table, they were ordered again the next day! Just when I thought this little experiment wouldn’t be well received!

How to make crispy chicken wings

The magic ingredient to crispy wings without a lot of oil is aluminium free baking powder. It may sounds unappealing, but coating chicken wings in seasoned baking powder is what makes the skin super crispy. You won’t taste it in the end results, so long as you use aluminium-free. To be clear, make sure you use baking powder, NOT baking soda, because there is a big difference!

You’re going to pimp yours up with added flavours:

  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • You an also add a dash of Cayenne pepper.

Prep Time 5 Minutes
Cook Time 1 Hour
Passive Time 1 HR 5 Mins
  1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminium foil and set a heat-proof wire rack inside.
  2. Pat dry chicken wings liberally with paper towels, squeezing out as much moisture as you can. Transfer them to a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper together, whisking well to combine, and sprinkle the mixture over the wings. Toss wings through the baking powder mixture until evenly coated.
  4. Arrange on rack, leaving about 1-inch of space between each wing.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes; flip and continue to cook until crisp and golden brown, (about 20-30 minutes longer), until golden browned and crispy.
  6. While wings are cooking, whisk together hot sauce, butter and sugar. Toss wings through the sauce to evenly coat.
  7. Serve wings immediately with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing, and celery sticks.
Recipe Notes

For crispier wings, follow steps 1-4. Then refrigerate wings uncovered overnight. This ensures they are thoroughly dried out I tried both methods, and only noticed a slightly crispier texture in the refrigerated wings!
