Basketball season might be winding down, but it’s also heating up. You don’t want to miss a single game, but you still have to eat. As you know, nothing hits like wings on gameday, and homemade is the way to go. Check out this recipe for homemade buffalo wings to add some flavor to gameday.

Gather the Ingredients

You’ll need to head to the grocery store to gather some ingredients before making these buffalo wings. The recipe calls for the following:

  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 cup of hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of honey

Prepare the Ingredients

Once you have the ingredients, flip your oven to 400 degrees. Then take out a baking sheet and put a wire rack inside it. Next, use a bowl to toss the wings with vegetable oil and add the pepper, salt, and garlic powder for seasoning. Finally, move the wings over to the baking sheet.

Bake the Wings

Next, it’s time for the easy part. You can pop the wings in the oven while you watch the pre-game action. Set the timer to 50 minutes but get up and flip them after 25 minutes. Add some extra time if the wings aren’t crispy and golden after 50 minutes. Depending on your oven, you might need to cook them for as long as an hour.

Make the Sauce

Once the wings are done, you’ll be ready to make the sauce. Add the honey and hot sauce to a saucepan and turn up the heat. Wait until it starts simmering before adding the butter. Keep cooking the sauce until the butter melts. Make sure the sauce is reduced, and take it off the burner.

Put it All Together

Finally, put the wings in a bowl and set the broiler to “low.” Toss the wings in the sauce before transferring them to the rack and popping them in the oven. It takes about three minutes for the sauce to caramelize but keep an eye on it. You don’t want to overcook the wings.

Making these wings is much easier than sinking a jump shot, and the buffalo sauce makes the feeling all that much sweeter. Pick the ingredients up before gameday to munch your way to victory.
