Perfectly tender, spicy and juicy, these world-famous and delicious wings are one of my firm favourites! I prefer oven-frying these (which basically means I bake them on a greased tray and lightly spray or brush oil over them) as opposed to the more common regular frying, so they are relatively healthier without any compromise on the amazing taste!!

Ingredients for Marinade
chicken wings, cleaned and divided into flats and drummettes
- marinate the wings for at least 2 hours in the ingredients below
1/2 tsp.
1/2 tsp.
1/2 tsp.
chilli powder
1 tbsp.
tomato sauce/ketchup
1 tbsp.
Ingredients for Buffalo Sauce
4 tbsp.
butter or oil
1 tbsp.
honey or brown sugar
1/4 cup
1/4 cup
2-3 tbsp.
hot sauce/chilli sauce
1/2 tsp.
cayenne pepper or chilli powder for extra hot wings
1/2 tsp.
garlic paste
1 tbsp.
salt to taste

Prepare the Buffalo Sauce while chicken is baking

For the Chicken Wings

When ready to cook, preheat your oven at 180 C.

Take a big plastic bag, add half a cup of all purpose/plain flour into it. Drop the wings into the bag in 2-3 batches, and shake until the flour coats all the wings perfectly.

Remove the wings and place them on a greased tray. Lightly spray the wings with some oil. You can also use a brush and brush the wings lightly with oil.

Bake for about 25 minutes. Remove and turn the wings. Put them back in the oven and bake for another 25 minutes.

For the Buffalo Sauce

Heat the oil or butter. Add garlic and stir fry until fragrant. Add all the other ingredients and simmer until thick and saucy. Adjust to your taste and consistency.

Once the wings are ready, toss them in this sauce and then spread them out on the tray for a few minutes to absorb the flavor and cool slightly.

Serve and Enjoy!! :)



Dear Fauzia, Asalamwalaykum
Another hit!! I fried the chicken instead of baking, but wow what a hit! I myself went crazy on them. In laws loving every recipe!! :-D
Allah Hafiz, Huge Fan, Sarah

can i use dis recipe for all chicken pieces , instead of only wings?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes, perfectly ok to use any chicken pieces. Just remember that bigger pieces like thigh or drum-stick may take longer to get fully done so allow some extra baking time for those.

Can i do dis wit chicken neck?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Never tried it.

Salams fauzia, the wings u used for this dish , are they with or without skin?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, with skin. Difficult to get the skin off wings, and they taste awesome with them anyways.

AMAZING recipe! Made it for iftaar yesterday n it was "finger licking good"!! Thanks!!

How many people does this serve?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Depends on what else you are serving with this dish. Should be enough for 2-3 people.


If I use one kg wings should I double everything for the sauce?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes please.

Assalawalaikum Fauzia can I make this in boneless ckn? Will it taste as good?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes that is fine.

veryyyyyyy tasty . im in love with the sauce. i used chicken pieces (as i didnt have wings) plus i fried them instead of baking. a delicious addition in my collection. im in love trying ur recipes.


Can we freeze the wings? If yes, what is the best way to do that?

JazakAllah Khair

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, cook them then wrap them in foil and freeze. When needed, simply thaw them out and warm them in the microwave or oven.


I sent a message yesterday and didn't get any reply till now. Can you please pry back soon as I need to make them today InshaAllah.

JazakAllah Khair

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, sorry dear I was away for a few days. I check in when I can. Have responded.


One more question. Can we prepare the sauce and refrigerate? If yes, for how long can we refrigerate?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes you can. For a 5-7 days in the fridge, up to a month frozen.

Ok JazakAllah Khair :)

made for iftar yesterday, turned out awesome, thou i did increase the amount as i made whole chicken pieces and as you stated baked for some more time.
thank you

wow, I have being searching for this receipe for a quite some time , definetely will try today thank u fauzia for making ths website and posting all these amazing receipes. I just have a couple of questions like, can we bake them in electric oven and if yes for how long, further wont the wings stick to the tray despite greasing them and furthermore do we have to brush them with oil rite after tossing them in flour and placing them in the tray?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Thanks! Yes you can bake them in an electric oven, same temp and time as the recipe states. If you grease the tray they will not stick. And yes brush them after tossing them in flour when they are on the tray.

Asak fauzia...tried this recipe alhamdililah turned out great...hubby n family loved it.this is an awesome blog for newbies like me.jazak allah Khairan.

A/Salam , Sister Fauzia,
I made these wings today, they were great. Better than restaurant wings. Jazakallah Khair. May Allah bless you and your family with all the happiness, health and prosperity.

Salam Fauzia

If I try this recipe,with boneless chicken strips from breast pieces, will the baking time remain the same?


Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, about 15 minutes per side will be enough for boneless strips.

Salam Fauzia. I officially have a Fauzia recipie addiction lol. I wanted to know if I use 500 gr drumstick in stead will I have the same result, And is it ok if I remove the skin...or wouldn't it taste nice then...? Plz reply ASAP as want to make it for Iftar ....thank youuuuu

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes you can use drumsticks and yes you can remove the skin. Just make sure you bake them about 5-10 minutes longer because they are thicker than wings and will need a bit more time to cook through. :)

Assalamu Alaikum

Wanted to ask is the coating in flour necessary or can I just marinate and cook? Both times i've made it, after cooking the chicken in the oven the coating goes lumpy and soggy in the sauce. Jazakallah

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam. Did you bake the wings long enough before baking? Normally it gives a good crisp coating on which the sauce sticks, have never had any issue of it getting soggy or lumpy. Yes you can try without the flour coating if you like. :)

I tried frying these and it was so gud.. I want to try it using chicken breast. Can i boil the chicken in water and then marinate? Will the flavours infuse into the boiled chicken?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Do not boil chicken before marinating, it would be then pointless to marinate as the purpose of that is to tenderise the meat and infuse flavour into it. Boiling first will just make it bland.

In the sauce can i replace the hot sauce/chilli sauce with barbeque sauce?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can.

Salam fauzia
I really like your recipes.and I tried these buffalo wings really tasty.but only one problem my coating goes off when I toast them in sauce and remaining coating goes soggy please advise.thankyou

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, could it be that the sauce was very thin in consistency? Also always make sure the chicken wings are dry when you coat them before frying or baking as this ensures that the coating adheres well to them.

Aww. Tried almost everything from fkf. Jazakallah.

Hello, i want to know if i can marinate and freeze these wings for later use? Like for ramzan i have made three batches to be baked later

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Hello, yes that is ok.

Salaam Fauzia,
Can I grill instead of baking?will it yield the same results?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, no that is fine, you can grill instead of baking.

Assalaamu'alaikum Fauzia, I just recently came across your Instagram and I'm addicted! I've taken down loads of recipes to try and have been ranting on about you to my mum and now she's hooked! Lol. Jazak'Allah for sharing such great recipes.

I just wanted to know if I fry these shall I do a shallow or deep fry. Sorry I'm new to cooking! X

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, thank you so much Sanah!! You will need to deep fry these to get that awesome crisp coating that we love on buffalo wings. :)
