Why I make Gluten-Free Wings:
I didn't add flour to these wings I just baked them on a rack to help keep them from getting soggy. I made these for my dad who is allergic to flour so I made them gluten-free.
How to prepare for making your wings:
I started by preparing my baking sheet. I lay down foil and then place a baking rack on the baking sheet.
I little seasoned each wing with a little seasoning salt and garlic powder then placed them on the rack. The sauce is just as simple.
While your chicken is baking just melt butter then add hot sauce. You can add more or less hot sauce depending on how much spice you want.
Once your chicken wings are done just toss them with your sauce.

Tips and FAQ:

Typically a chicken wing consists of the entire wing area from the joint to the tip. Buffalo wings are the smaller portions of the whole wing, so the drum and the flat.
Why are they called Buffalo wings?
One theory is they were created back in the 1960s at a bar in Buffalo, New York.
