Crispy Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings
Total time: 1 hour, 25 minutes
4 pounds chicken wings
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Nonstick cooking spray
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup hot sauce
1/2 cup Litehouse Chunky Blue Cheese or Homestyle Ranch Dressing
1/3 cup Litehouse Blue Cheese Crumbles
Lay wings on rack on rimmed baking tray and let dry in refrigerator overnight, or pat dry with paper towels.
Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Put one oven shelf in lower quarter of oven and one in top quarter.
Place wings in large re-sealable bag. Add baking powder and salt. Shake bag to coat wings evenly.
Line tray with foil. Spray rack on baking tray with nonstick spray. Place wings skin side up on rack. Bake on lower shelf 30 minutes.
Move tray to higher shelf and turn oven up to 425 degrees F. Bake 40-50 minutes, rotating tray halfway through. Wings are done when they are dark, golden brown and skin is crispy.
While wings bake, whisk together butter and hot sauce; keep warm.
Remove wings from oven and toss with hot sauce; sprinkle immediately with blue cheese crumbles. Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing, carrots and celery sticks.
