Description

These DELICIOUS oven-baked chicken wings are crispy and addictive, especially when dressed in buffalo sauce and dipped in homemade ranch!


Scale

Ingredients

For the baked buffalo wings:

2.5 lbs chicken wings

kosher salt

fresh cracked black pepper

3/4 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce

3 tablespoons ghee or butter

For the homemade ranch:

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream or full-fat plain yogurt

2 tbsp everything but the bagel seasoning

1 tsp dried dill

optional: 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Meanwhile, pat the chicken wings very dry by placing them on a cutting board lined with paper towels. Make sure they are completely dry, then season with salt and pepper. Be generous.
  3. Line a baking sheet with a cooling rack, then lay wings on the cooling rack.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip. Bake for 25-30 more minutes, until golden and crispy.
  5. While the wings bake, make your buffalo sauce and homemade ranch.
  6. For the buffalo sauce, combine Frank's and ghee in a small saucepan. Cook on medium heat for 5-10 minutes, whisking to fully combine. Once 10 minutes have passed, turn off the heat and pour sauce into a large bowl that the wings will later go into.
  7. For the ranch, mix together all of the ingredients. Lemon juice is optional but adds a nice bright flavor, if you've got a lemon laying around. Otherwise, just skip it. Taste.Add 1/2 tsp of salt if you want it to be saltier, but I usually prefer the milder flavor. Set ranch aside.
  8. When the wings have fully baked (45-50min) turn the broiler on high and broil for 5-7 minutes, until the wings are a deeper golden brown.
  9. Using tongs, toss hot wings in buffalo sauce, coating them completely.
  10. Serve immediately with celery and homemade ranch for dipping!
  11. Enjoy
