Baked Spicy Chicken Wings

 Baked Spicy Chicken Wings

I decided to bake my husband some chicken wings this weekend because he really loves them.  These baked spicy chicken wings were super easy to make and turned out moist, tender, and delicious.  These spicy wings paired nicely with blue cheese dressing.

How to Make Spicy Chicken Wings

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle the oil on the baking sheet and spread it evenly over its surface.

Combine the flour, garlic powder, black pepper, and sea salt, to taste in a large zip lock bag; seal and mix until well combined.

Add a large handful of wings to the flour mixture and toss until evenly coated. Remove from the flour shaking excess off; place skin side UP on the prepared baking sheet without crowding them. Repeat with the remaining wings. Discard any leftover flour.

Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake the wings undisturbed for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, carefully flip the wings over and continue to bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on paper towels to drain grease.

Make the sauce by combining Frank’s hot sauce and the melted butter; heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to get hot.

Place the wings in a large bowl then drizzle the sauce on the wings then toss to coat evenly. Serve immediately with blue cheese dressing on the side, if desired. Enjoy.

  1. Hi Pam! Chicken wings bring me back to college days. I remember going to happy hour and devouring them with a side of blue cheese dressing and a tall glass of beer.

    My hubby would love it if I made him a plate of these while he was watching his favorite game. They seem easy enough so maybe I will surprise him on Superbowl Sunday.

  2. I have no idea what Frank’s Original is but I guess it is a hot sauce of some kind. This sounds like it would be great with my turkey wings. Keep well Diane

  3. I have been searching for a baked Buffalo chicken wing recipe to make for the Superbowl, and I just found the perfect one! If you and your husband loved these, I know my family will, too! Thanks, Pam!

  4. Yes, I need to be thinking about what sorts of football food I will be preparing for the upcoming weekend! I am a wimp when it comes to HOT anything! But hubby loves it. He would like those wings!!!
    Hugs,
    Kris

  5. I love this time of year and seeing all of the different varieties of wing recipes, and yours looks delicious! Just the fact you used Frank’s alone makes this a stand out. Great post!

  6. I love chicken wings and baked means I can have many without worrying much about the calories.. Thanks for posting a lovely recipe!

  7. Poor angel lost his wings, ha ha. Just kidding.
    You know I’m a big wing fan and these look like some tasty ones, Pam. I’m sure they disappeared quickly.

  8. These look really good! I made some wings on Sunday, which were ok, but I baked them and then tossed them in the hot sauce mix…I think marinading would have added to the flavor. Next time I will try this recipe.I cringed at using an entire stick of butter, lol…but what are you gonna do? My husband is from upstate ny and swears Frank’s + butter is the only way to go 🙂 And the bleu cheese dressing is a must to cool the burn!

  9. Hi Pam

    12 wings, is that 12 whole wings cut up to make 24 pieces or 6 whole wings cut up to make 12 pieces.

    I just tried your recipe and have to say, it was absolutely sensational. I baked mine on my Weber Kettle, and they came out perfect! Spicy, with a lovely afterburn. Thank you for sharing this new, permanent addition to my arsenal of recipes.
