Buffalo Wings is synonymous with Super Bowl parties | Food and cooking

Americans are expected to eat 1.42 billion chicken wings during Super Bowl LVI, according to the 2022 Wing Report from the National Chicken Council.

With the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams ready to face off next Sunday, I set out on a mission to find a delicious Buffalo wing baked instead of fried. There are some who will say that it is sacrilegious to even consider making non-fried wings. But I hate mess and extra calories and don’t own an air fryer.

The solution is one simple ingredient you likely already have in your pantry: baking powder (not baking soda).

Simply coat the chicken wings with baking powder and some seasoning and bake on a wire rack to remove the excess fat. They will cook for 45 minutes to make sure the skin is good and crunchy.

Once baked, mix with the sauce. The meat is tender and delicious. To top it off, serve it alongside our homemade blue cheese sauce.
