Buffalo Wings
Level: Easy
Total: 1 hr 55 min
Prep: 15 min
Inactive: 1 hr
Cook: 40 min
Yield: 4 appetizer servings


12 whole chicken wings
3 ounces unsalted butter
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Place a 6-quart saucepan with a steamer basket and 1-inch of water in the bottom, over high heat, cover and bring to a boil.

Remove the tips of the wings and discard or save for making stock. Using kitchen shears, or a knife, separate the wings at the joint.

Place the wings into the steamer basket, cover, reduce the heat to medium and steam for 10 minutes. Remove the wings from the basket and carefully pat dry. Lay the wings out on a cooling rack set in a half sheet pan lined with paper towels and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Replace the paper towels with parchment paper. Roast on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and cook another 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through and the skin is golden brown.

While the chicken is roasting, melt the butter in a small bowl along with the garlic. Pour this along with hot sauce and salt into a bowl large enough to hold all of the chicken and stir to combine.

Remove the wings from the oven and transfer to the bowl and toss with the sauce. Serve warm.

  1. I'm from buffalo. Your a retard. It hot oil and wings that's it. No steaming pussy. Fat, fat is good! And if u really new a about wings. That have to be made in buffalo with Frank orginal. An u call your self a chef. ! I hope u see this

  2. The one thing I can say with confidence I know how to cook are wings. I eat them probably twice a week. 50 minutes at 375f in the oven completely negates this entire process. It's the easiest and best way to make wings (short of frying.) Frying once at a low temp, then high temp in peanut oil will always be the best method, though. Barbequed wings can also be deadly good.
