the best buffalo wings

Whaaaaaaaaaat? Lets have some wings. The best ever wings? I think so. Mr. D thinks so. Debo thinks so. And well - I hope you think so, too.

Its football season people. You need to consume wings. Or make your loved ones consume wings if you're not a wing sort of person. Either way - its going to be wing making day in your house this sunday and you're basically going to blow the minds of those around you.

I pinky promise.

the best buffalo wings

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon lawrys season salt
1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning 
1 tablespoon paprika
1 cup franks hot sauce
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

preheat your oven to 425.
after you have washed and dried your wings, place them in a ziploc bag. to the bag, add lawrys season salt, cajun seasoning, olive oil, and half of your garlic powder. seal and shake all ingredients together being sure to coat the wings.

line a baking sheet with tin foil, then add your wings one by one in a single layer. sprinkle on your paprika and bake for 1 hour flipping them over half way through.

when wings are just about finished, add your butter to a saucepan. allow to melt then remove from heat. add in your hot sauce, black pepper, and remaining garlic powder. stir to combined.

pour sauce over wings, toss to coat, and enjoy!
