Just Wing It

baked hot wings

Like many signature dishes, this tasty treat was served up by an industrious chef, looking for a new way to cook up ingredients already on hand. Before the legendary invention, chicken wings were designated scrap for soup stock. An alleged over shipment created one of the greatest bar foods known to man, and catapulted the little Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY into history books. While the actual details of the fated night remain in question, one thing’s for sure, it was a darn delicious idea.

To make it Mary, and a little better for your heart, try my baked recipe instead of breaking out the deep fryer. I guarantee you won’t miss any of that saturated fat with flavor like this! You can also cut even more calories by making your own low fat ranch to dip and cool off those wings.

Baked Hot Wings

3lbs chicken wings
Cajun seasoning
salt and pepper
olive oil
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot
2 tbsp margarine

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil to make it easier to clean and arrange chicken wings. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and apply liberal amounts of Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. Turn to coat on both sides. Bake in oven for 45 minutes. While the wings are baking, melt 2 tbsp margarine in a small saucepan and mix in hot sauce. Once wings are done place in a metal bowl, pour hot sauce mixture over and toss together.

Low fat Ranch dip

1/2 cup low fat Greek style yogurt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp dill
1/4 tsp pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and serve with hot wings

  • Wow, Wonderful recipe for Wing Chicken recipe


  • I just found your blog from foodblogs.com… I love the clever title names you post for each recipe!! This recipe sounds great. I have never made hot wings from scratch before…I’m going to put this on my “must-make” list!! How much cajun seasoning do you think you use for a liberal amount?

    BTW- I would love if you would link up this recipe on Monday to the “Look What I Made” link party. I would be a great addition!

    • Thanks Holli I will link up as soon as I can thanks for the offer. Once you make the wings once you will make them all the time. I just shake on enough seasoning so that the wings are all covered in a light dusting. Let me know what you think!
