Recipe of the Week

Buffalo Honey Hot Wings and Traditional Buffalo Hot Wings
 Prep time Cook time Total time 10 mins 60 mins 1 hour 10 mins
 Serves: 4­6 Ingredients: 24 chicken wings with skin (approx 3 pounds), rinsed and patted dry.

 2 tablespoons baking powder
 2 tablespoons brown sugar
 2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
 2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground celery seed

 Traditional Buffalo Hot Wings Sauce
Hot sauce unites with a touch of molasses for the traditional hot wings flavor
2/3 cup Frank's Hot Sauce (NOT hot wings sauce) mixed with
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon butter

 Buffalo Honey Hot Wings Sauce Honey
is the dominant ingredient in this sauce for sticky hot wings while still being hot by using Hot WINGS sauce
2­-3 tablespoons Frank's Hot WINGS sauce (NOT traditional hot sauce like above) mixed with
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons molasses

 Buffalo Mild Honey Hot Wings 
This sauce is the "in between" of the above sauces ­ more mild heat than traditional hot wings due to the addition of honey and the use of regular hot sauce (NOT hot wings sauce). If you like hotter wings add some Hot Wings Sauce
2/3 cup Frank's Hot Sauce (NOT hot wings sauce) mixed with
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon butter
 Optional for hotter wings: 1+ teaspoons Hot Wings Sauce

 1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Top baking sheet with baking rack/oven proof cooling rack and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together Rub Ingredients. Add half of the Rub to a large freezer bag. Add half of the wings and shake until coated evenly. Line wings on prepared baking rack so they are not touching. Add remaining Rub ingredients and wings to freezer bag and repeat.

 3. Bake on upper middle rack for 45-­50 minutes. Move oven rack approximately 6­8" from broiler and broil to desired crispiness, watching closely so they don't burn. Flip chicken wings over and broil the other side until crispy.

 4. The prep for all of the sauces is the same. **While wings are cooling, melt butter over medium heat. Add remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce to a simmer until slightly thickened, approximately 3­5 minutes. Taste and add additional hot sauce for spicier sauces/more honey for sweeter.

 5. When chicken is done, add to a large bowl and pour over sauce. Gently toss wings with a spatula until evenly coated. 

 6. Serve with desired Blue Cheese/ Ranch Dip, etc. dip

7. Dig in! Notes Start with the Buffalo Honey Hot Wings if you aren't sure what to try first :)

**You don't want to make the sauce in advance or it will become too thick.
