Made without flour, these oven baked hot wings with buffalo sauce taste just like the traditional fried recipe without all the grease. And since they're not breaded, anyone on a gluten-free diet can eat them, too.

Make the buffalo sauce
Melt the butter with the garlic powder in a large frying over medium heat.
Stir in the hot sauce and Tabasco. Cook until heated through.
Add the wings to the frying pan and toss to coat with buffalo sauce.
Serve with blue cheese or ranch dip.
The salt is what removes the excess moisture from the skin making it crispy.
Some people like to include 1 teaspoon of baking powder with the salt to help with the crispiness.
Frank's Buffalo sauce is not very spicy, so the Tabasco sauce adds some extra heat. You can omit if you want mild wings, or increase it for extra spicy wings.
