Spicy Ranch Chicken Wings Recipe

Spicy Ranch Chicken Wings Recipe

“My mother gave me this recipe more than 10 years ago,” writes Tracy Peters of Corinth, Mississippi. “Since then, I’ve made these lip-smacking wings for all different occasions.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Bake: 40 min. YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds whole chicken wings
  • 3/4 cup hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Directions

  • 1. Cut the chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a gallon-size resealable plastic bag, combine the hot pepper sauce, butter and vinegar. Add chicken wings; seal bag and toss to coat evenly. Refrigerate for 4-8 hours.
  • 2. Place chicken on racks in two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Sprinkle with dressing mix and paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until juices run clear. Yield: about 4 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
