Liz’s Awesome Baked Chicken Wings

The magic component of these wings is to marinate them for a couple of hours in the fridge in Bolthouse Farms Yogurt based Ranch dressing! It adds an extra layer of flavor and makes them crisp up on the outside while super tender on the inside!! My family cannot get enough!

Makes 30 wings

INGREDIENTS

Buffalo sauce:

1-2 tablespoon salted butter, melted (I like mine buttery!)

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

1/3 cup hot pepper sauce (Like Frank's or Chulula)

Instructions

1. Season wings by tossing them first with the oil, kosher salt and pepper

2. Place wings in a large bowl or Ziplock bag covered in Bolthouse Farms

    Ranch Dressing. Let sit for an hour or more.

3. When ready Preheat oven to 400°F. 

4. Set a wire rack inside or on top of 1 large rimmed baking sheet. *Take a look at my photo. The suspended extra wire rack helps gets the wings super crispy.

5. Mix all buffalo sauce ingredients in a medium bowl except hot sauce; let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in hot sauce; keep warm. 

6. Toss marinated wings in sauce to coat. 

7. Set wings on top of prepared racks and spread out in a single layer.

8. Bake wings until cooked through and skin is crispy, 45–50 minutes.

Serve with a trio of Bolthouse Farms Blue Cheese, Ranch and Salsa Ranch Dressings for dipping and lots of carrots and celery, too (of course, gotta have a veggie with that!)
