Oven Roasted Buffalo Wings

It's Sunday and Sunday means football. 

What goes best with football?

 Buffalo Wings. 

My handsome roomie (and boyfriend) loves homemade hot wings. I love them too. They are insanely delicious and beat out any deep-fried restaurant wings that I've ever had and I've tried a ton of them. 

The best part about these buffalo wings, besides the fact that they are delicious, is how simple they are to make (and you all know how much I adore simple, beautiful food). 

Oven Roasted Buffalo Wings

Ingredients
All Natural Chicken Wings (1-1 1/2 lb per person)
Oil (olive or canola)
Smoked Paprika
Garlic Salt
Lawry's Seasoned Salt 
White Pepper
Lemon Pepper
Cayenne Pepper
Cumin
Frank's RedHot Buffalo Sauce

Method
1. Heat your oven to 500 degrees F
2. Breakdown your wings. I like to keep them rustic and not clip the tips - I just cut them between the drumette and the flat so that each wing is broken into two pieces and then place them in a bowl
3. Add just enough oil to your bowl of wings to coat them and then add your spices and seasonings. You can use the combination that I have listed above or some of your personal favorites. Just make sure you get a solid balance of salt and pepper and don't be shy - you want to make sure you pack them with lots of flavor! Coat the wings liberally then toss to ensure everything is covered evenly.


4. Next lay wings out on a sheet tray in a single layer. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and delicious-looking.  
5. Pull tray from oven and place wings back into a bowl.


6.  Toss with your favorite hot sauce - I like  Franks RedHot Buffalo Sauce. 
7. Serve Immediately with buttermilk ranch or bleu cheese for dipping. I also like to put a family style platter of veggies out - carrots, celery, jicama, sugar snap peas, etc. 
8. Enjoy!

Note: Don't forget an extra bowl for bones :)
