  • 5 pounds jumbo chicken wings
  • 2 1/2 cups buffalo sauce (plus additional for dipping)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the wings in a single layer in an 11x15 baking pan. You can use 2 9x13 pans if you'd like.
  • Pour 3/4-1 cup buffalo sauce over the wings.
  • Bake the wings for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the wings over and brush them with an additional 1/2 cup buffalo sauce.
  • Bake them for another 30 minutes.
  • Pour off any extra chicken juices if desired (this will allow the skin to get a little crispier than if it would continue to cook in the juices. This step is optional!).
  • Turn the chicken wings over again, brush them with sauce and bake them for 25 minutes.
  • Broil the chicken wings on low for 5 minutes so that the tops get a little browned.
  • Toss the wings with additional buffalo sauce once they are done.
  • Serve immediately or place the wings in a slow cooker on warm until you are ready to serve them. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container.
