Buffalo wings were arguably one of my favorite foods to eat this past year. I love them, and they are incredibly easy to make at home. The balance of sweet and spicy in this recipe is fantastic; great for any game day!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken wings, tips removed and wings halved at joint, or wingettes
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup bottled hot sauce, such as Frank's
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Nonstick spray, for greasing
  • Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce, for serving, recipe follows
  • Celery sticks, for serving
Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper

Directions

Place the chicken wings in large resealable bag in a shallow baking dish. 

Melt the butter in a small saucepan and remove from the heat. Stir in the honey, hot sauce, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper. Let cool completely and pour over the chicken wings. Seal the bag and let marinate at room temperature 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and discard the marinade. 

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large sheet tray with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray. 

Bake the chicken on the sheet tray, flipping once halfway through cooking, 35 minutes. 

Serve alongside the Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce and celery sticks.

Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce:

Combine the blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and Worcestershire sauce together in mixing bowl or food processor and mix until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
