Crispy buffalo wings tossed in a delicious buffalo sauce! Try one of the best healthy recipes at home, & turn it into a baked-crispy dish.
Gone are the days when you need to place a delivery order to enjoy a meal of crispy baked buffalo wings! To be frank, I can feel you. Usually, Crispy means fried wings, and you don’t want that mess in your kitchen after a long hard day.
Now let’s get deep on this topic. That old paradox calling to fry wings to enjoy them crispy is overrated. Truth is, you can easily prepare your wings at home, and turn them into baked, crispy, and hot buffalo wings. No fake promises here.
Many best healthy recipes on the internet advise you to use baking powder to make the baked wings crispy, and I agree. Actually, baking powder is the secret ingredient that will give you a crispy taste. The baking powder creates a moist layer on top of the skin, and as the chicken wings are baked, the skin becomes crispy. P.S.: You will not taste the baking powder at the end, so wash off your worries.
People have always thought that frying food with the oil on high heat makes it crispy. However, baking these wings on a low then high heat only in a healthier manner.
First, start by baking the chicken wings on low heat, to allow the fat under the skin to melt. Then increase the heat to high.
Conclusion: The melted fat, the high heat, and the baking powder will combine their efforts to give you an ultimate crispy baked buffalo wings experience.
For a perfect result, make sure your sauce is warm. First, add the sugar and salt to the hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat. Then bring them to a simmer. Finally, pour in the butter and whisk until the butter is melted. Keep note that the sauce volume will reduce.
How long do I need to bake the chicken wings:
Patience is key. If you want perfect results, give 45 to 50 minutes for the chicken wings to bake. You need this ample time to allow the fat to melt and the moisture over the skin to develop. Do not worry, you will be rewarded with a delicious plate of crispy baked chicken wings.
If you want to have the restaurant-style experience, then I suggest you chop some celery and carrot fingers and serve them aside from the chicken buffalo wings. However, do not limit yourself, if you want to opt for other vegetables of your choice. I sometimes serve this plate with cauliflower, broccoli, cucumber, celery, carrots, and my Onion French Dip signature.
In conclusion, this dish is very easy to prepare. Moreover, it comes with additional benefits. Health-wise, it is heart health-friendly. You can serve it as an appetizer or even as a main dish for dinner. In addition, you can improvise with this recipe to make it kid-friendly by replacing the spicy buffalo sauce with a milder or non-spicy sauce, such as pizza sauce, yogurt-based sauce, or tomato sauce, and enjoy a well-deserved and delicious happy meal with your family.
