These homemade buffalo chicken wings are fast, easy, and a LOT healthier than the deep fried version.

 

Serve them just like regular wings – with carrot & celery sticks and your favorite sauce.

 

Spicy, Sweet, & Hot Chicken Wings

(8 servings)

 

  • 2 lbs (900 g) chicken wings
  • 1½ tsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) hot sauce (Frank’s RedHot if possible)
  • 2 Tbsp grass-fed butter or coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar

 

Preheat your oven to 400ºF/200ºC and line a baking sheet with foil. Put a wire rack on the sheet and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.

 

Dry the wings and add them to a medium bowl, tossing them with the oil, baking powder, and onion and garlic powder until they are fully coated.

 

Place the wings on the wire rack and bake until the chicken is crispy and completely cooked (45-50 minutes).

 

While the chicken is baking, make the sauce. In a small pan over medium heat, simmer the hot sauce, butter, and honey and cook (stirring often) for about 5 minutes. Remove it from the heat and stir in the vinegar.

 

When the wings are done, place them in a large, clean bowl. Add the prepared sauce and toss to coat well. Place the wings on a platter and serve!
