READY IN: 55mins




  • Place a 6-quart saucepan with a steamer basket and 1-inch of water in the bottom, over high heat, cover and bring into a boil.
  • Remove the tips of the wings and discard or save for making stock. Using a sharp kitchen knife, separate the wings at the joint. Place the wings in a steamer basket, cover, reduce the heat to medium and steam for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the wings from the basket and carefully pat dry. Lay the wings out on a cooling rack set in a half sheet pan line with paper towels and place in the refrigerator until cold.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Replace the paper towels with parchment paper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn and cook another 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While chicken is cooking, melt the butter in a small bowl along with the garlic.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and add hot sauce and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Remove the wings from the oven and add to the bowl and toss with sauce.
  • Serve with desired condiments ie Ranch, Bleu Cheese, etc.
