  • 2 pounds drumstick chicken wings
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce or Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat grill to medium high.
  2. Season chicken wings with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper
  3. Spray the grill grate with cooking oil until glossy.
  4. Use tongs to place the seasoned wings on the grate and grill, covered, flipping occasionally for about 20 minutes or until the wings are golden brown and completely cooked through.
  5. While the wings are cooking, combine the buffalo sauce and butter in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the butter is completely blended into the sauce.
  6. When wings are done, dip into the sauce to coat and serve immediately.


For an oven method: Place chicken wings in a large pot. Fill it with water until the wings are just covered by the water. Add a pinch of salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, drain, and transfer wings to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. (Use two baking sheets if necessary.) Place the wings on the middle rack of your oven, broil on high for 12-15 minutes per side. If your wings are closer to the broiler, cut down the time to 7-10 minutes per side.
