We love Classic Chicken Wings, they are a classic for game day or parties (along with Chicken Buffalo Dip)! Though we enjoy the traditional wings, the sauce on these buffalo mild wings takes the recipe over the top.

Buffalo Wild Wings, STEP ASIDE. You’ve got a serious competitor with this wings recipe. 😉

If you love fried chicken wings but always feel guilty about how many you had, the guilt is over! These wings are completely baked but taste just like the deep-fried crunchy wings and they are so much easier to make!

Just season the wings and let the oven do the rest of the work. Then, dredge in the mild buffalo sauce and you have yourself a great appetizer or starter recipe, or even dinner.

how to make buffalo sauce from scratch?

Most traditional mild wings just use Hot Sauce as the sauce. We find that to be a little bland and a bit too spicy. Since our wings are seasoned as they are baked, they already have so much flavor to them.

To tame down the spiciness of the sauce, we mix in melted butter, garlic, and sugar with the Red Hot Sauce! The butter adds richness to the sauce while the sugar balances the flavors and then garlic gives it a special kick!

Prepare Buffalo Sauce- In a skillet, melt the butter with the sugar and garlic. Once cooled, stir in the Hot Sauce. Set sauce aside until needed.

  1. Prepare one recipe of our Classic Baked Wings.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce per instructions above.
  3. Once wings are baked. Completely cover the wings in the homemade buffalo sauce.
  4. ENJOY, friends!

CHEF’S TIP- Once the wings are coated in the sauce, I like to return the wings to the oven for a few more minutes. The sauce penetrates into the wings and tastes so much better. However, you DON’T have to do this step.
