Made using the world famous Cooks’ Illustrated technique, the skin is so shatteringly crisp, it’s hard to believe they aren’t fried. Unbelievably easy to make, try this once and you’ll be converted for life. Watch the quick recipe video to hear how crispy these really are!
The great thing about the internet is that there are loads of options for any recipe your heart desires. The bad thing about the internet is sifting through all those Google search results to find a recipe that actually works as promised and is exactly what you are after.
So here is what I promise you: If you love perfectly seasoned crispy buffalo wings, tossed in a classic spicy, buttery Buffalo Sauce with a tinge of sweetness and prefer to avoid the mess and calories of deep frying, this is The One.
Hand on heart, these aren’t just “quite crispy but still not like they’ve been deep fried”. These wings are seriously crispy. The skin is paper thin and shatteringly crisp, honestly like they’ve been deep fried. No exaggeration. You can read the hundreds and hundreds of testimonials in the original Truly Crispy Oven Baked Wings recipe that I shared if you want assurance.
