Equipment

  • Baking tray
  • Wire cooling rack

Ingredients

Wings

  • 3 lbs chicken wings, separated
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Buffalo Wing Sauce

  • 1/3 cup Frank's Original Hot Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Sambal Oelek
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup butter, unsalted, melted

Blue Cheese Dip

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 - 1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

Instructions

Crispy Oven Wings

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
  • Rinse and dry chicken wings really well.
  • Place in a large bowl, add corn starch, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and toss to coat well.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and place a wire cooling rack on the tray. Spray with non-stick spray or lightly grease. Place chicken wings on rack so they aren't touching.
  • Bake on middle rack for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and turn.
  • Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F. and place wings back in oven (you don't have to let it preheat)
  • Bake for another 30 minutes or until golden and crispy.

Buffalo Wing Sauce

  • While wings are baking make the sauce.
  • In a bowl mix together Frank's, Sambal, Worchesterchire, and apple cider vinegar. Slowly whisk in melted butter. Set aside.

Blue Cheese Dip

  • While wings are baking make the dip.
  • Crumble blue cheese into a medium bowl. Add the mayonnaise, yogurt, onion and garlic powder and stir to combine. If you prefer a smooth texture rather then chunky, mix everything together in a food processor or blender.
  • Store, covered, in the fridge for up to one week.

Finishing the wings

  • As soon as the wings are done place them in a large bowl. Toss with the sauce until well coated. Serve immediately with blue cheese dip.

Notes

  1. If you plan to have leftovers save any excess sauce that collects at the bottom of the bowl. You can toss the reheated wings with the extra sauce. 
  2. Chicken wings can be reheated in a 350 degree F oven for 10-15 minutes. 
  3. Wings can be stored in the fridge for 3 days.
  4. Buffalo sauce can be made in advance and keep in the fridge for 3 months. You will have to warm up the sauce to melt the butter again. 
  5. Blue cheese dip can be made in advance and keep in the fridge for one week.
