These Easy Buffalo Wings are simply that, easy to make and easy to enjoy! There is just three pantry staples for the seasoning and two ingredients for the sauce. Once you try these wings you will likely ask yourself, “Why haven’t I made these sooner?”

Seasoning the wings

This recipe couldn’t get any easier. Simply sprinkle your wings with some salt, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika (I wash my wings in a water and vinegar solution, then remove any stray feathers or “hairs” before seasoning). Toss them together and transfer them to a sheet pan for baking. If you have time you can let them marinade for a few hours, but honestly it is not necessary. I’ve made these quite a few times without marinading and they are just as good.

Season, Broil & Toss for Easy Buffalo Wings

Step 1: Season your wings

Add wings and all of the ingredients to a bowl and toss well to coat. Then transfer to a sheet pan sprayed with cooking spray

Step 2: Broil your wings

Add your wings to the top rack in your oven and set the oven to broil or 500 °F. Broil for 20 minutes, then flip and broil for another 10 minutes

Step 3: Make your sauce

Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl large enough to accommodate all of the wings and mix together well

Step 4: Toss in the sauce

Add the wings to the sauce, then toss together ensuring all the wings are fully coated

Step 5: Broil again

Return your wings to the sheet pan and broil for an additional 5 minutes. Then serve with any leftover sauce or another condiments you like.

Turn the heat up on your easy buffalo wings

This recipe makes medium hot wings, to turn up the heat on the wings add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the sauce or to make it really interesting, try adding some of Saucy Lips Ghost Pepper Tamarind Sauce. The heat and hint of tamarind flavor changes your basic buffalo sauce into a special house sauce. It’s so good!

Save it for later!
