How to Make Chicken Legs That Taste Like Wings

by Laura Dobrozsi

An easy alternative to cutting all those wings by, you save money. These taste better than most wings I've had in restaurants, and they're a hit for the whole family.


  • 4 ½ Pounds Chicken legs
  • ½ Cups Frank's Red Hot wings buffalo sauce
  • ⅓ Cups Butter
  • Olive oil spray
  • Roasting pan
  • Microwaveable bowl
  • Tongs
  • Blue cheese dressing
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Only four ingredients, plus blue cheese dressing for dipping when finished.

    Step 2

    Heat oven to 500 degrees.

    Step 3

    Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil. Spray foil with olive oil.

    Step 4

    Place chicken legs on oiled foil, and spray chicken with olive oil. This makes the chicken crisp on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside as they bake.

    Step 5

    Place in oven and set timer for 25 minutes.

    Step 6

    Meanwhile, start mixing your wing sauce. Place 1/3 cup of butter in microwaveable bowl, large enough to toss your chicken in. Melt butter in microwave.

    Step 7

    Measure 1/2 cup of Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce.

    Step 8

    Pour wing sauce into melted butter.

    Step 9

    Whisk together.

    Step 10

    Turn wings over after 25 minutes.

    Step 11

    Back to the oven for 20 minutes.

    Step 12

    Remove from oven when timer goes off.

    Step 13

    Toss chicken in sauce.

    Step 14

    Don't forget the napkins! Tip: my youngest daughter doesn't like wing sauce because it's too hot. She loves hers with ranch to dip in.
