Simple Buffalo Wings

Kathy D


This is my go-to wing recipe from Ina Garten. As simple as this recipe is, I get requests from my family to make them all the time. I think the Frank's Hot Sauce is the key to the flavor. These wings are mild to medium on the spicy scale. You can always taste test the sauce and add more cayenne if you'd like it hotter. I have never made the dip, because I'm allergic to blue cheese. We just really love these wings! I like to serve them with oven fries and a salad with ranch dressing. These wings are made a little healthier by broiling them vs. deep frying. Enjoy!

How to Make Simple Buffalo Wings


  • 1Preheat the broiler.
    Cut the chicken wings into thirds, cutting between the bones. Discard the wing tips (or save them for a stock). Melt the butter and add the cayenne, hot sauce, and salt. Put the wings on a sheet pan (I line mine with aluminum foil) and brush them with the melted butter mixture. Broil the wings for about 8 minutes. Turn the wings, brush them again with the butter and broil for 4 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • 2For the dip:
    Place the blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, Worchestershire sauce, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • 3Serve the chicken wings with the blue cheese dip and celery sticks. Enjoy!
