Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

Growing up we had wings, but we never had buffalo wings. That all changed when I met my husband. He and his friends had a tradition of going out every Wednesday night for 20 cent wings. When we started dating, I got invited to join in. Every Wednesday night, around 8 pm, we would head downtown and order 30 wings and fries to split. Typically we got half BBQ and half buffalo. In the beginning, I wasn’t a huge fan of buffalo sauce, so I consumed mostly BBQ. Occasionally, I had a fry dipped in Buffalo sauce or a buffalo wing. After some time, I grew quite a fondness for those buffalo wings.

The 20 cent wings tradition has faded as we left college. We no longer can eat wings once a week and stay moderately fit. But still, I get a craving for buffalo wings. When that happens, here is my go-to easy recipe to satisfy that craving. Hopefully, you enjoy it as much as I do!


  • 2 lbs Chicken Wings

  • 1/4 cups cornstarch

  • 1 tbsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • Frank’s Wing Hot Sauce (to taste)


  • Pre-heat oven to 450 F degrees
  • In a large ziplock bag add the cornstarch, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Pat dry the chicken wings and place in the ziplock bag.
  • Seal the bag and shake well to coat the chicken evenly.
  • Place the coated chicken wings on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 mins.
  • After 20 mins flip the wings and place them back in the oven for another 20 mins.
  • Add Frank’s wing hot sauce.
