  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add chicken wings, put lid on steamer, and steam wings until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Spread chicken wings onto a platter to cool; pat dry with paper towel. Spread wings onto a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake wings in preheated oven for 20 minutes, flip, and continue to bake until crispy, about 20 minutes more.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir hot sauce, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper into the melted butter; cook, stirring occasionally, until the seasonings dissolve into the liquid and the mixture is hot, about 5 minutes.

  • Put wings in a large bowl; pour sauce over wings and toss to coat.

The method sounded interesting so I had to give these a try. Wonderful wings made no changes! The only thing I'd do different next time is to spray the baking pan so they don't stick. Read More

Good recipe but directions should have stated to treat the baking pan with non-stick coating prior to placing the wings on it. That would have eliminated pulling the skin off the wings when you turn them. Read More

This was a great recipe. Not only does it taste great but I didn't have to fry the wings. In fact steaming them first did two things. It cut down on the cooking time and some of the fat from the skin melted off into the water. I will definitely make these again. Read More

Great wing! I par boiled the wings for 7 minutes b/c my steamer basket was too small to handle all the wings I was preparing. I followed the sauce recipe and it was a hit! Spicy but not over powering! Will be my go to wing recipe! Read More

This is the best buffalo chicken recipe I've ever had. I added a bit of ranch to the buffalo mix then baked the chicken in the buffalo mix. After 20 minutes I flipped the chicken then re coated it in the mix. It was seriously delicious I wish I had more they were perfect. Read More

I usually just do butter and hot sauce but liked the additions of sugar and seasoning. The only addition I made was to add a teaspoon of chili paste which probably gave it a bit more of a bite. I used the sauce on chicken legs and everyone liked it. I'll be making it this way again. Read More
