Spicy Buffalo Wings

Alright here we are, a day before the Super Bowl and I saved the best for last. What Super Bowl party would be complete with out buffalo wings? Now I like my buffalo wings spicy so these are no exception as they are not for the faint of heart.  I use a habanero pepper, chili paste and seasonings to coat perfectly seasoned oven fried wings.

Spicy Buffalo Wings Recipe

Serves 2 - 4 Prep Time: Cook Time:


  • 1.5 to 2 lb chicken wings, tips trimmed and cut at the joint (Note: Sometimes you can find "party wings" at your local store, or the frozen drumettes, you can use them if you prefer)

  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
