How to flash marinate the chicken wings?

  • Begin by washing the chicken wings well. Than pat them completely dry with the help of kitchen towels. There should not be any water left on the wings.

  • Layer a baking tray with aluminum foil and set a cookie rack on top of the tray.

  1. Measuring Units used, 1 cup = 240 ml & 1 teaspoon = 5 ml.
  2. Caution: Cayenne pepper sauce is really spicy so I would recommend that you do the test taste first & add the sauce according to your spice tolerance level. It's better to begin adding less & test it first and than add more if required. 
  3. Note: We love our chicken wings spicy & that's how we made it. They are not blazing hot but spicy.
  4. You can add more honey to balance off the spice level.
  5. I used organic chicken wings, they are on the smaller side & I made todays recipe with 9 wings in total. You may double or triple this recipe. It works wonderfully well.
  6. Do not miss any ingredient in todays recipe. Each ingredient is highly recommended to get the exact Buffalo Wild Wings taste.
  7. I would greatly recommend that you prepare the garlic infused butter. It sure does makes a lot of difference. You won't get the authentic taste if you sub this step with garlic powder.
  8. If you are totally in no mood to make the garlic infused butter you may sub it with 2 tbsp canola oil + 1/2 tbsp. garlic powder. 
  9. Toss the oven baked hot wings immediately in the sauce & serve them right away. This will guarantee very crispy wings.
