  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup plus a little extra chili powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 12 chicken wing portions
  • 1 bottle Frank’s RedHot sauce
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Prepare the Spice Mixture:
    • In a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, combine the flour, cayenne pepper, black pepper, chili powder, onion powder, and sea salt.
  2. Coat the Wings:
    • Place the chicken wing portions in the bag with the spice mixture. Seal the bag and shake until all portions are completely covered in the spice mixture.
    • Shake off the excess flour-spice mixture using a sieve. Place the wings on a plate and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.
  3. Prepare the Baking Sheet:
    • Towards the end of the refrigeration time, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • Pour the vegetable oil onto a standard cookie sheet (jelly roll pan) and spread it evenly across the pan.
  4. Double Dip and Bake:
    • After refrigeration, repeat the flour-spice process for a second coating on the wings. Shake off the excess and place the wings on the oiled baking sheet.
    • Flip the wings over once to coat both sides with oil. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes.
  5. Make the Sauce:
    • In a small saucepan, combine the Frank’s RedHot sauce and butter. Warm over low heat until the butter melts, stirring occasionally.
  6. Finish and Serve:
    • After 30 minutes of baking, briefly remove the wings from the oven and turn each portion over to crisp and cook on the reverse side.
    • After a total of 60 minutes of baking, remove the wings from the oven and let them rest for 5 minutes.
    • Transfer the wings to a metal or glass bowl and pour the prepared sauce mixture over them. Toss until evenly coated.
    • Serve the hot wings in a serving dish and enjoy with your favorite beverage.


  • These oven-baked hot wings are perfect for parties, game days, or any time you’re craving a spicy and satisfying snack.
  • Be sure to have extra napkins on hand for messy fingers!
