Make Buffalo Wings with Hot Sauce Expert & HEATONIST Founder Noah Chaimberg
For years, hot sauce lovers have asked us one question more than any other: “How do I make chicken wings!?” With the release of our first ever Hot Ones Buffalo Hot Sauce, we knew it was finally time to share our HEATONIST HQ secret recipe. Learn how to make crispy wings at home with HEATONIST’s Founder and OG Hot Sauce Sommelier Noah Chaimberg:
For this hot wing recipe, Noah takes a three step approach to get his wings extra-crispy using appliances found in most home kitchens. First, Noah creates a dry-brine using just baking powder and salt, then leaves the chicken wings uncovered to dry in the fridge overnight. Next, he steams the wings for 10 minutes to remove some of their fat before oven baking at 420* for 36 minutes until the wings are sizzling and golden brown.
Hot sauce lovers have asked us again and again, “How do I make the wings?!” HEATONIST Founder Noah Chaimberg has a secret recipe for making the crispiest hot wings at home - no frying required.
Then comes the most important part - the sauce! Noah uses Hot Ones Buffalo Hot Sauce to achieve Buffalo wing goodness without ever having to melt and add butter - the butter is already baked into every bottle of Hot Ones Buffalo sauce - to his hot sauce. If you’re using a different sauce at home, go ahead and melt 1 tablespoon of butter to mix with every tablespoon of hot sauce. At HEAT HQ, our preferred sauce to wing ratio is 5 fl oz (one bottle) of hot sauce for every 2 dozen / 24 wings. But if you like it extra saucy, go ahead and get wild!
