Classic Buffalo Baked Chicken Wings

Beer and wings, wings and beer. They just go together. Right? Kinda like wings and game day.

Those two are basically inseparable. After all, Buffalo Wild Wings made a restaurant solely based on the concept of wings and sports!

I have to admit for the longest time I was a lazy wing eater. What do I mean by that? I liked to order boneless wings whenever we went to places .. aka the chicken tenders because I didn’t want to eat around the bone. But my husband has officially converted me to regular wings and hot buffalo sauce ones at that.

I’m usually a garlic parmesan, honey bbq, or teriyaki sauce kinda girl but we went to Houlihan’s in Dallas a couple of weeks ago and Mike ordered buffalo wings and OMG I fell in love. I don’t know if it was the sauce or if I was just starving … but I NEEDED to make these wings at home.

After all buffalo wings they are classic and the original wing after which all other wings are based off of right?

Are Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings Healthier?

So today, we are making Classic Buffalo Baked Chicken Wings. No frying going on over in this casa peeps!

But you know what?

You won’t miss the frying because baking these wings still gives the wings the same crunch and crispiness on the outside.

The crispy exterior and the coconut oil added to the buffalo sauce helps the sauce stick to the wings and stay on there! No more sauceless wings!

    I have 2 confessions. 1. I don’t like beer, Can I have vodka and wings? 🙂
    2. I haven’t been to BWW! My hubby keeps wanting to go…and then we just don’t.
    BUT I would rather make your baked wings in the comfort of my Pjs! Pinned!

      haha.. I love you girl! I use to not like beer either, but then I tried Dosxx and fell in love its light and limey! I CANNOT believe you’ve never been to BWW, you need to go … listen to your husband. He goes to IHOP with you, return the favor! Thanks for the pin girl!
