Oven-Baked Hot Wings


3lbs chicken wings (look for the pre-cut wings so you don't have to deal with cutting them. They should come with wing pieces and drumettes)

  • 6 oz. vinegar-based hot sauce
  • 1/2 cube of butter
  • 1/2 cup of Italian salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives or scallions


Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees

Place chicken in a plastic zipper bag with salad dressing and garlic and marinate for 2+ hours. Bake chicken pieces for approximately 20 minutes and then flip chicken pieces and bake for an additional 20 minutes (you may want to use a rack so that the pieces get crispy)

While baking chicken, prepare wing sauce by melting butter in a small saucepan and then add hot sauce to melted butter and mix well.

When chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the oven and place it in a mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over the chicken and toss. Sprinkle with chopped chives or scallions.
