Baked buffalo chicken

Buffalo wings is one of the most popular and tasty appetizers. Especially for us with spicy taste buds, buffalo wings remind us of the spicier foods that is popular in Kerala. I wanted to prepare the wings at home, but was discouraged because most of the recipes, that I went through on the Internet, involves frying the chicken. I decided to experiment with my own recipe and used other baked chicken dishes for approximate baking time. It turned out just perfect !! I hope everyone would try out this healthier version of buffalo wings !

Recipe (Serves 6):

Chicken drumsticks - 6 (approx 1.5 lb)
Hot sauce - 3 oz
Butter - 1 tbsp
All-purpose flour - as needed


Melt the butter in a saucepan, shut off the flame, add the hot sauce to it and mix well.

Preheat the oven to 425F.

Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and spray with cooking oil.

Pat dry the drumsticks.

Dredge the drumsticks with flour on a plate, shake off the excess and place on the baking tray.

Repeat until all the drumsticks are lined on the tray.

Spray the chicken with a bit of cooking oil.

Reserve about 1/3 of the marinade.

Spoon the rest of the hot sauce marinade over the chicken and turn to coat well.

Place the tray in the pre-heated oven and cook for about 10 minutes.

Reduce the temperature to 400F and turn the drumsticks over.

Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

The chicken is cooked when the juices run clear when pierced.

Pour the reserved marinade over the cooked drumsticks and toss to coat evenly.

Serve hot with ranch or blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.

  1. Chicken wings or drummettes can be used instead of drumsticks. Chicken wings would be the best choice for this recipe.
  2. If using boneless chicken, adjust times accordingly and check often.
