Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe:

Grilled Chicken Wings with Buffalo Sauce is a family favorite. We love making chicken for game day, for a snack or as a main dish. These Buffalo Chicken Wings are simple to make with easy ingredients.

Buffalo Sauce is one of our favorite sauces. We use it in a lot of recipes, but tossing them with grilled chicken wings is my family’s favorite. You can easily serve chicken wings plain, but adding the buffalo sauce takes your wings to the next level.

We recommend adding the sauce after you done grilling them. Once the chicken wings are removed from the grill, place the wings in a large bowl and pour the buffalo sauce over the top.

Coat the wings completely with the sauce for amazing flavor.

How to Make Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wings:

How to Grill Buffalo Chicken Wings:

Grilling Chicken Wings is easy to do and the results are amazing. There is no fuss or mess when grilling chicken wings. Prepare the grill by preheating it and oiling the grates. This prevents the chicken wings from sticking to the grill.

Make sure the chicken wings are dry and season with any type of seasoning you prefer. We used salt and pepper and garlic pepper. Then place the chicken wings directly on the grill over the heat.

Close the grill and allow the chicken wings to cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

How Long to Grill Chicken Wings:

After preparing chicken wings with seasoning, place the wings on the grill over direct heat. Make sure to use an oil with a high burn rate. Olive oil, Avocado oil, vegetable or coconut oil all work great.

Cover and cook wings for about 15 to 20 minutes total. Every few minutes we recommend flipping wings and continue cooking until chicken wings are finished cooking.

Since the grill is high in heat, it doesn’t take long for the wings to get a golden brown. Use a instant read thermometer to check for doneness.

This cooking process is much less messy then deep fryer them. This recipe is super easy to make and always a crowd favorite.

Can I Bake Buffalo Chicken Wings?

  • Prepare Chicken Wings – Dry and season your chicken as the recipe card indicates.
  • Baking Sheet – Place chicken wing on a sheet pan in a single layer lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake – Place chicken wings in the preheated oven of 425 degrees. Bake for about 40 minutes. Make sure to flip half way through the cooking time.
  • Add Sauce – When Chicken wings are done cooking, toss in buffalo sauce.
