Baked Buffalo Wings
I mean if there is any cheat day snack that has my name written all over it, its this bad boy. Buffalo wings are like no other. Do not even come near me with BBQ wings, its buffalo all the way. As I have said before, there are some flavours here in Germany that have just not made it into the household of every German, and this is one that they are at great loss of. Not only is the spice perfect, but the tanginess as well, and then when you combine it with the creamy sharp blue cheese. Its heaven.
I do not need to continue explaining how great these wings are, but now you can have the same taste as the restaurant style wings you would order at your local sports bar with less calories, as they are baked and not fried. Trust me, they are still jammed packed with flavour and there is little to no difference. Make sure you get out your wet wipes when eating this messy delight.
My husband for some odd reason does not like wings. I understand his point of view, it’s the though of nibbling on a bone that just eeks him, which I get. This is why they have boneless wings in the US. In Germany however, its was either wings or nothing. I will try and find a way to make boneless wings myself, I am assuming its not difficult and is quite simple, but I just really wanted to get the original, getting your hands and face all messy, double dunking (yes double dunking) into the blue cheese dip wings I miss oh so much.
These were a hit with my sister, and I will be making these soon, maybe if I am asked nicely, with some boneless for the hubby.
Baked Buffalo Wings
6 tbsp all-purpose flour
3 tsp paprika
3 tsp onion powder
3 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper
20 chicken wings
1/2 cup butter
1 cup hot sauce (I used Franks Buffalo hot sauce)
Divide your chicken wings amongst three plastic Ziploc bags. Add to each bag 2 tbsp flour, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Close and shake. Lay in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 200 C.
Line large baking sheet with baking paper.
In a large bowl add butter and hot sauce and mix. Add first bag of coated wings to the sauce mixture and coat. Place onto the baking sheet. Continue with the remaining wings. If you do not have enough sauce just add more butter and hot sauce to the bowl and coat the floured wings.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of your wings. The coat should be golden when finished.
Blue Cheese Sauce
250g blue cheese, crumbled or whole (just mash it beforehand)
150g sour cream
4 green onions, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp dried parsley
Salt and Pepper
In a large bowl mix all of your ingredients. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes prior to serving.
