Sticky Buffalo Hot Wings

If my daughter could eat one thing for the rest of her life, It would probably be hot wings. She loves hot wings. Not only hot wings but wings in general. So it goes to say that I am always cooking some form of wings. These wings are a creation that my daughter and I created not to long ago while we were in a rut for wing recipes to try. I have to say, These were a HUGE hit. I hope you all enjoy these as well as we do.

Sticky Buffalo Hot Wings


2 to 3 lbs of wings

2 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pepper- or to taste
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne

2/3 cup hot sauce – your favorite brand will do
2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 400* and line a sheet pan with parchment or foil. Place a rack on top. Brush the rack with butter or spray with oil. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl combine all of the ingredients for the rub. Sprinkle the rub onto the wings and rub the wings so that they are all evenly coated with the rub. Place the wings on the baking sheet with the rack.
  3. Place the wings in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Flip the wings half way through so the wings get nice and crisp on both sides.
  4. In the meantime, In a sauce pan over medium low heat combine the ingredients for the sauce and bring to a boil. Let the mixture cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  5. When the chicken is done remove the wings to a large bowl and pour over the sauce. Toss the wings to coat completely. Serve as desired.
