Hot BBQ wings

Hot BBQ wings


These Hot BBQ Wings are a creative twist to original buffalo wings.This recipe was inspired by my brother-in-law Alex  who also cooks amazing plov and is a pro at grilling. He deep fries wings in batches to get a perfect result of crispy wing on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside.I decided to bake instead, and with a little trick the result of  crispy and moist wing is achieved. You can make them either way and enjoy!


30 chicken wings.

1/2 cup favorite bbq sauce *

1/2 cup Franks Hot sauce

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 lemon squeezed

salt & pepper

*If your bbq sauce too tangy,add some sugar to the sauce to balance out the flavor.


1.Bring pot with water to a boil.

2.Season water with salt.

3.Throw in wings and cook for 5 minutes.

4.Transfer wings to a bowl and season more with salt,pepper and lemon juice.

5.Heat oven to 500 degrees.

6.Arrange wings on a cooling rack.

7.Place cooling rack on top of rimmed baking sheet.

8.Add some water to the bottom of the pan.

9.Bake for 30 minutes.

10.Turn wings over and bake for another 20-30 minutes or until wings are golden brown.

11.Heat both sauces in a sauce pan with butter. ( add sugar if needed)

12.Place wings in a bowl and toss with sauce. Let rest for 3-5 minutes and toss again.

I sprinkled some minced cilantro on top.





Baked Buffalo Wings

This is a great alternative to regular all time favorite buffalo wings  appetizer. The wings are baked instead of fried which is already cutting off on that extra fat and calories. Want even less calories and fat take of the skin and dip it in the sauce, that’s why I make extra sauce, for that extra dip. If you like them extra hot you can add cayenne pepper to the marinade.
