Blue Ribbon Recipe

These are classic Buffalo wings you'd get in a wing joint. They're super crispy and simple to make. Coated in traditional butter and Buffalo sauce with fantastic seasoning, dunk them in your favorite dressing to mellow the heat a bit. Perfect for any occasion, but trust us when we say you won't be able to stop eating them until they're gone.

How To Make crispy sticky oven hot wings

  • Drying chicken wings.
    Rinse the wings and dry them off individually with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels completely. (This is the trick to making the wings really good!)
  • Tossing wings in olive oil.
    In a big bowl, toss the wings with about a quarter cup of olive oil so the wings are completely covered.
  • Seasoning the chicken wings.
    Add all the seasonings to the wings and toss until completely covered.
  • Chicken wings on a baking sheet.
    Lay the wings flat on a sprayed cookie sheet.
  • Chicken wings baking in the oven.
    Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes. After about 30 minutes and the wings look cooked, but not crispy. Turn the oven on broil and cook each side until nice and crispy. Watch the wings closely so they don't burn.
  • Butter, hot sauce, and vinegar whisked together.
    In a small saucepan, melt the stick of butter and whisk in enough hot sauce to your liking. Add the vinegar and whisk. Add some salt and pepper if needed. Adjust to your taste.
  • Coating wings in the hot sauce.
    Put the wings back in a big, clean bowl and pour the sauce over them; toss. Put some extra sauce on the side.
  • Dipping Crispy Sticky Oven Hot Wings in ranch.
    Dip in your favorite dressing like blue cheese or ranch.
