Ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Wings

You need just 5 ingredients to make these easy baked chicken wings! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chicken Party Wings: most stores sell these already cut in half with the wing and drumstick part separately and the wing tip removed. If not, use a sharp knife to split the wings.
  • Salt, Pepper & Smoked Paprika: for seasoning the chicken. The smoked paprika is going to add some great smoky flavor!
  • Butter: for making the sauce.
  • Your Favorite Wing Sauce: I like to use Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce. It’s not too spicy and has a really great flavor! Feel free to use your favorite sauce for this recipe!

How to Make Baked Chicken Wings

These easy baked buffalo wings are perfect for any gathering! I usually make them for a big game day and they’re gone in no time! They’re quick and easy to make, and you can prepare them ahead of time, too! Here’s how to put this recipe together:

  1. First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or use a silicon mat. Place the chicken wings onto the baking sheet and season generously with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Use your hands to massage the seasoning into the chicken!
  2. Cover the chicken with a sheet of foil and bake the chicken wings covered for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the melted butter with your choice of buffalo wing sauce and divide the mixture in half.
  4. After 20 minutes, remove the chicken wings from the oven and preheat the oven to 425F. Dip each piece into sauce, place them back on to the baking sheet and back into the oven.
  5. Bake the wings uncovered for additional 10 minutes at 425F, then remove them from oven and give them a second coating of sauce (do not dip into previous sauce, may have uncooked chicken juices).
  6. Serve them right away with more buffalo wing sauce on the side and ranch dressing, if desired!
