    Nice and easy recipe and tasted good. The only thing I changed is to put the wings under the grill for the final step, I prefer wings with crispy skin.  -  25 Jul 2016


    From the "inventor": The ingredients are key... allrecipes didn't mention my notes (if you want to taste them the way I intended). Instead of "3/4 cup tomato sauce", use 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon "no salt added" tomato sauce (proportion is critical), Franks Red hot cayenne sauce (nice vinegar/pepper balance), Tone's Chili powder (seems to have proportionally less salt than average). I usually deep fry the wings for 10 minutes. Baking is lower fat, but 30 minutes is a probably a little too short. I like spicy food, and with the called for 1 tsp ground cayenne with the other proportions gives a good "bite" IMHO. Hope you all enjoy... thanks for the nice comments!!!  -  19 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent!!!! However, I did change the recipe to: 1 bottle Franks (12 oz), 1 (8 oz) can Hunts No Salt Tomato Sauce, 1/3 cup Unsalted Butter, 4 dashes Cayenne & 1 1/2 Tbsp Chili Powder. Baked in preheated 400 F oven for 45 min - dipped in sauce which I boiled over med. temp for 5 min.; replaced on clean 11 x 17 pan, baked add'l 15 min, Dipped again in remaining sauce, baked for 10 min. Then removed from oven and the meat was sooooo tender! (Probably should bake on a broiler pan to keep as much fat separated from chicken to make crispier) But loved it - all my guests raved and asked for the recipe! Hurray for a tasty buffalo wings that you can bake and not have to fry! Thanks for all the reviews who contributed to the outcome of this recipe!  -  01 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
