Crispy Baked Ghost Pepper Chicken Wings with Buffalo-Blue Cheese Sauce
These chicken wings are rubbed with ghost pepper spice then baked to crispy perfection, served with a buffalo-blue cheese sauce and crumbled blue cheese.
- 2 pounds chicken wings separated and wing tips removed
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ghost pepper powder or more!
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup Louisiana style hot sauce
- ½ cup blue cheese dressing
- 1 or 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
Pat the wings as dry as you can get them. This will help with the crispiness.
Set the wings into a large bowl and season with baking powder, garlic powder, ghost pepper powder, and salt. Toss to get them nice and coated. The baking powder helps with the crispiness.
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Set the wings onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
Increase oven heat to 425 degrees and bake another 30 minutes, or until the wings are cooked through and the skins are nice and crispy.
For the sauce, add the butter to a small pan and heat to low. Melt the butter and add hot sauce and blue cheese dressing. Swirl and heat to combine. Remove from heat and add the crumbled blue cheese.
Toss with the wings and serve, or serve the wings with the sauce on the side!
