Oven-Baked Hot Buffalo Wings

Recipe by: Bobbi Jo Lathan

Recipe type: Appetizer

Cuisine: Southern


15 mins


40 mins


55 mins


4 lbs. chicken wings (wing tips removed and separated at joints)

¼ cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)

¼ teaspoon salt (kosher)

¼ teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)

1 tablespoon garlic powder (or granulated garlic powder)

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon dried thyme

3 tablespoon butter (melted)

¼ cup hot pepper sauce (of your choice-I like Texas Pete)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°.

  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil OR place a wire rack inside the rimmed baking sheet.

  3. Now, git yourself a big ol’ mixin’ bowl and toss the chicken wings in the lemon juice.

  4. Add the salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, dried thyme (crushing it with your fingers as you add into mix), melted butter and hot pepper sauce.

  5. Toss wings in that sauce really good. (I just use my hands to be sure them wings are all completely coated.)

  6. Place chicken wings on the rimmed baking sheets covered in aluminum foil; or on a rack over the foiled baking sheet. (Make sure they’re not too crowded so they will cook evenly. If you think it’s too crowded then you should use two baking sheets.)

  7. Roast in your oven for 35-40 minutes until crisp and golden.

  8. Then, serve them up hot with some dipping sauces, such as, bleu cheese dressing or extra hot sauce.* YUM!!!


*Optional Hot Sauce Using the ingredients from the recipe: Heat the salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, thyme, hot pepper sauce, and butter in a sauce pan. Then serve hot as a dipping sauce. Now, how easy is that?
