Spicy Ranch Chicken Wings

“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.
  • Makes
    about 4 dozen


  • 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


  • 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.
  • Place chicken on racks in two greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Sprinkle with dressing mix and paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until juices run clear.
Editor's Note
Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

    Pretty simple recipe. They were good but not the best. I guess I was looking for something with a littl crispness and these were not crisp at all.
