Tangy, Spicy, Crunchy Baked Buffalo Wings

What could be better for a Super Bowl party than delicious, messy, juicy Buffalo wings!

Here's my husband's favorite Buffalo wings recipe. We try to make them a little healthier by baking them (and this way you don't have to worry about the hassle of frying), but I promise you do not sacrifice on flavor. You still get all that tangy, spicy, crunchy goodness!

The blue cheese dipping sauce (which is very blue cheesy, btw) is a perfect counterbalance to the heat from the wings. And we like to keep things pretty traditional by using Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce.

I promise these wings will get your guests talking, or at least saying, "Mmmmm...," while they're wiping their mouths.

CHICKEN WINGS

Ingredients

  • 18-20 wings
  • Salt
Directions
  1. Pat your wings dry (it will help them crisp up)
  2. Generously salt  wings.
  3. Place wings on a wire rack
  4. Bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes or until  golden brown.
While the wings are baking you can prepare your sauce.

SAUCE

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce , preferably Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
Directions
  1. Melt the butter, and in a large bowl combine it with hot sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar.
  2. When wings are done, add wings to mixture and coat.

DRESSING

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch fresh chives, minced
Directions
  1. To prepare the dressing, place the blue cheese, buttermilk, and olive oil in a medium bowl and stir together with a fork, mashing a little to break up the cheese.
  2. Season with the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and chives.
  3. Chill until serving.

My husband and I like ours medium spicy, but if you want to add some heat, just swap in Frank's XTRA Hot Sauce and go to town! :)

Your picture of ingredients shows flower, but written ingredients doesn't mention coating wings. I can't wait to try these but don't want to mess it up! Or do you use flower to thicken sauce perhaps, help!
