Baked buffalo chicken wings are crispy and flavorful without being fried, and always the star of the party!
While most chicken wings served in a restaurant are fried. These are baked and just as delicious as my Ranch Baked Chicken Wings! Super easy to make at home and always a hit! Have an air fryer? My Old Bay Air Fryer Chicken Wings are always a huge hit!
Are you a wingette or drumette lover? I prefer the wingette, but of course, I would never say no to the drumette ha!

Buffalo chicken wings in a sauce or marinade?
Most buffalo wings are deep fried and tossed in buffalo sauce. I am not a huge fan of the wet wing. So I prefer to dip the wings in the sauce and then bake them. Then I drizzle some extra sauce over the top, just for a little extra kick.
Crispy wings baked with buffalo sauce on them. Perfect for game day food, party appetizers, or like my family just a craving period. We love all types of wings.
Make these hot crispy oven-baked buffalo wings for your next party appetizer. Don't forget a side of ranch or blue cheese dressing.
