  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (like Frank’s RedHot)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional, for extra heat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Creamy Ranch Dip

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (or 1 tsp dried dill)
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (or 1 tsp dried parsley)
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped (or 1 tsp dried chives)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (optional, for tanginess)

Instructions

Buffalo Wings

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top.
  2. Prepare Wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. Place them in a large bowl and toss with vegetable oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Bake Wings: Arrange the wings in a single layer on the wire rack. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, turning halfway through, until the wings are crispy and fully cooked.
  4. Make Sauce: While the wings are baking, combine the hot sauce, melted butter, white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper (if using) in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until the butter is melted and the sauce is well combined.
  5. Coat Wings: Once the wings are done, transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the hot sauce mixture over the wings and toss to coat evenly.
  6. Serve: Serve the wings hot, garnished with chopped parsley if desired, alongside the creamy ranch dip.

Creamy Ranch Dip

  1. Mix Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk until smooth.
  2. Add Herbs and Spices: Stir in the dill, parsley, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
  3. Optional Tanginess: If you prefer a tangier dip, add the lemon juice and mix well.
  4. Chill: Cover and refrigerate the dip for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
  5. Serve: Serve the ranch dip cold with the hot Buffalo wings.
