  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup wing sauce I like Frank’s Red Hot
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 395F.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with foil and place a baking rack on top.
  3. Pat chicken wings dry (remove as much moisture as you can). Season with sea salt.
  4. Place chicken wings on the rack making sure they are evenly spaced out.
  5. Bake chicken wings for 15 minutes. Flip and bake for another 15 minutes.
  6. Turn the oven on high broil and broil for 5 minutes until the skin turns golden brown. Make sure to watch it closely so it doesn’t burn!
  7. While chicken is cooking, heat a small pan over medium-low heat.
  8. Add wing sauce, ghee, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and black pepper. Mix well.
  9. Simmer until it slightly thickens, about 5-8 minutes.
  10. Once the chicken is cooked, toss it with the maple buffalo sauce until evenly coated.
  11. Serve immediately.
