The holiday season is here and although these holidays may be a little different for most of us, we still need to eat, am I right? Alright, I know a lot of people’s New Years resolution typically is to get healthier so I have you covered with this recipe. These Buffalo wings are baked instead of fried, there’s no butter and I think they taste better than the fried ones. I doubt that you will miss the deep fryer because these bake just as crispy.
I’m a huge fan of Buffalo wings and my husband is an even bigger fan. We really enjoy the typical wet rub Buffalo wings but we LOVE the dry rub even more and we believe this recipe is better than any other dry rub wings we’ve tasted. My husband likes his wings extra crispy and that’s exactly how I bake them. If you’re not a huge fan of crispy wings, just take them out of the oven after they’re done baking but before they get too crispy.
The dry rub I used in this recipe is made from ingredients I use on a regular basis. The heat level varies depending on who I’m making them for. If you’re not a huge fan of spicy foods, just omit some of the chili seasonings. I also use Aleppo pepper in the recipe. Aleppo pepper is made from dried, coarsely ground Halaby chile peppers and is used much like crushed red pepper. Its named for Aleppo, a town in northern Syria, this spice is a staple in Middle-eastern cooking. My husband introduced this to me over 34 years ago. I can tell you from experience, Aleppo pepper that comes from Aleppo, where my husband is from, tastes much spicier and the flavor is better than what we get here in the States but it’s still very good, it’s still very spicy and we use it often. You can find the pepper in middle-eastern markets.
The dry rub will be enough to save for later. You will only be using some of it for this recipe. The rest you can store in a covered container. I keep mine in a Mason jar.
Thank you for stopping by.
