Keegan’s Best Chicken Wings Recipe


My 18 year old nephew, Keegan, loves to cook, and this chicken wings recipe is one of his favorites, which he came up with himself!

Keegan’s Chicken Wing Sauce for about 15 Wings

  • 3 T. butter
  • 1/3 c. Franks red hot (I checked the ingredient label: Aged Cayenne Red Peppers, Vinegar, Water, Salt and Garlic Powder – looks great!)
  • 1/3 c. ranch dressing (I make my own ranch dressing to avoid the soybean oil in the brands at the store.)
  • 1/4 t. black pepper
  • 1/2 t. lemon pepper
  • 1/2 t. garlic salt

“I bake the wings in a deep baking pan to catch the liquid as the chicken cooks. I think it’s a 425* oven for about an hour but I’m not sure.  Mostly I try to get the wings to have a crispy outside without burning.  You could also grill the wings, but it’s just easier to bake them. As soon as I take the wings out of the oven I throw them in the bowl of sauce, cover with a tight lid, and shake ‘em around.  Obviously if they are too spicy or not spicy enough, all you have to do is add more butter or use less sauce.  P.S. If you want to make good BBQ wings, replace the ranch with honey and hot sauce with BBQ sauce.”

Notice I don’t have a picture of these wings, if anyone tries them and would be willing to send me a picture, I’d appreciate it!  I think I’ll add this recipe to my Superbowl snacks list, too…

Thanks, Keeg!!  :)

    We made almost the same thing last night. Minus the ranch…we just do that on the side but I am thinking next time I will add it in! :) Thanks.

    My sister used to do this all the time when she had abnormal cravings for hot wings :) Her other favorite thing to do was bake chicken breasts and douse them with the hot sauce and use that to top a salad with bleu cheese. A hot wing salad! Great recipe, thanks Keegan!
