Chicken Wings

 My husband loves this chicken wing recipe. Although, I don’t know of many chicken wing recipes that he doesn’t love. 🙂 This particular recipe came from my grandma. She has since passed but I have vivid memories of her making these wings for my grandpa. He too loved them and one time I remember my husband and him having a playful competition to see who could eat more. I believe Jason won that competition with pride. 


This recipe is super easy to prepare and doesn’t take long to bake either. I often serve ours with french fries or a baked potato and macaroni and cheese.


 I’m a wee bit of a baby when it comes to hot/spicy foods. I truly can’t handle the heat. So, I like to dip my wings in ranch dressing.


Chicken Wings


  • 2 pounds of chicken wings approx 16 If not already done cut apart wings and drumettes
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 package of Onion Soup Mix dry
  • 3/4 cup of hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • olive oil


  • Place butter,soup mix, cayenne pepper and hot sauce in a sauce pan and turn to medium heat.
  • Allow butter to melt and stir often.
  • Brush chicken wings with olive oil and place under the broiler for about 2 min. Just to get the skin lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and turn oven to 400 degrees.
  • Brush the hot sauce mixture onto the wings.
  • Place in 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  • About halfway through the cooking process I brush more hot sauce on the wings.
  • Remove wings and place on a serving platter.


I used a wire rack that I sprayed with nonstick cooking spray but parchment paper or foil will also work. I suggest spraying whatever you use to help the chicken not to stick.
