Buffalo Wings Recipe

One of the most popular bar snacks in the U.S. was actually born in a small Buffalo, NY, bar in 1964.

Many a game-day, bar-hopping American would never know you could mix crispy wings doused in sweet-hot sauce if it weren't for the Anchor Bar and its owner's inventiveness.

2 lb. chicken wings
2 tbsp. Vegetable oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper


1/4 c. hot sauce (such as Frank's)
2 tbsp. honey
4 tbsp. butter
Ranch dressing, for serving
Carrot sticks, for serving
Celery sticks, for serving

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and set a wire rack over a baking sheet. 


2. Toss chicken wings with oil in a large mixing bowl and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place on a baking sheet that has been prepared.

3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the chicken is brown and the skin is crisp, rotating the wings halfway through.

4. Whisk together the spicy sauce and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a low simmer, then add the butter.
