Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (210°C). Line a large baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. If wings are not already divided into drumettes and winglets, cut wings in half at the joint and slice off tips. They tend to burn and don’t have much meat on them.

  2. Place wings in a large bowl. Sprinkle with cayenne, paprika, cumin and salt. Rub over chicken as evenly as possible.

  3. In a small bowl, stir Tabasco with melted butter and vinegar. Pour over wings. Toss to coat. Place wings on the wire rack. Don’t crowd.

  4. Bake in centre of 425°F (210°C) oven until browned, from 40 to 45 minutes. (If wings are on a rack, they don’t need to be turned.) Great served with a blue cheese dip as is the custom at the famous Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York.
