Baked Buffalo Wings

Recipe Information
Hot Wings that are baked, not Fried.


Serves/Makes:6 to 8

  • 5 pounds frozen chicken wing pieces, thawed
  • 1 bottle Durkee Hot Sauce or other brand
  • 1 stick melted margarine or butter
  • 1 package Hidden Valley Ranch powder dressing mix or other brand
  • If you have the time and energy, taking the skin off of the wings does improve the flavor.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees (225 C.).
  • Margarine or butter can be melted in the microwave for approximately one minute on high.
  • Add about 1/2 of the bottle of hot sauce to the melted margarine or butter, then stir to mix up.
  • Dip each chicken wing piece in the mixture, then place on a cookie sheet.
  • After all pieces of chicken are coated and on cookie sheet, sprinkle with the powdered Ranch dressing mix.
  • Bake in preheated oven for approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
This recipe either originated from Hidden Valley Ranch powdered dressing mix or Durkee Hot Sauce. I don't recall. I think the original recipe actually called for deep frying the chicken first, but I didn't do a good job of following the recipe instructions. This recipe comes from the mother of a family that doesn't particulary care for chicken. So even non chicken lovers tend to like good buffalo wings.
