Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings (VIDEO)

Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings - Lexi's Clean Kitchen #glutenfree #wings #superbowl #buffalochicken

These Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings are the perfect appetizer recipe for football Sunday or Super Bowl! They are crispy with frying, and are a great lightened up version of your classic fried buffalo chicken wings!

Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings PlatedCrispy Baked Buffalo Wings

You can’t have a Superbowl party without wings (in my opinion)! You can though, have them crispy and flavorful without being fried. I visited friends at the University of Buffalo years back. We, of course, got the famous Buffalo wings and as you can imagine they were fabulous.

Baked Wings with Buffalo Sauce

In college I was a big fan of Wings over Amherst (these are not healthy). I definitely still think about those fried boneless wings (and the cajun cheese fries). Many of my friends ordered honey mustard, BBQ, garlic parmesan… me? Give me Buffalo any day of the week.

Can you bake chicken wings?

The tip I found years back that I love (and successfully tried with my Sweet Potato Chili Fries), is placing a wire rack on the baking sheet. Gets everything nice and crisp!

Can you use chicken legs or chicken thighs?

Yes! Just adjust cooking time and sauce amount as needed.
