Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • 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

My husband who is a very fussy eater when it comes to anything with skin said, “these are the best chicken wings I’ve ever had”. Followed the recipe exactly except had my own sauce. Excellent method of cooking, they came out crispy and moist. Did need about an extra eight minutes to obtain the crispiness I was looking for. Will definitely use this recipe and again. Next time will even even try the sauce Read More
