  • 2 pounds chicken drumettes and wingettes (approximately 20 pieces)
  • tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup Buffalo Sauce (click for recipe)
  • Sliced green onion optional, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 250°F and spray a wire baking rack with nonstick spray. Set the rack over a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken with the baking powder and salt. Transfer the wings to the rack, in a single layer, with a little space between each one.

  • Bake the wings in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, increase the temperature to 425°F and bake for an additional 45-50 minutes or until the chicken is crispy and golden brown.
  • Remove wings from oven and allow to rest 5 minutes.
  • Toss in the Homemade Buffalo Sauce and serve immediately garnished with sliced green onions, if desired.

  • If you use frozen wings, make sure to thaw them overnight in the refrigerator before baking.
  • Pat the wings dry with a paper towel before coating. This will help the oil and rub stick well.
  • For the evenest cooking, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil then set a wire rack on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the whole thing with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Remember not to overcrowd the wings on the baking sheet. The more airflow they have, the more evenly they will cook and the crispier they will be.
Storage: Store Buffalo wings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
