If you’ve ever been to Maryland, you know there are two things Maryland is well-known for: Blue crabs (either steamed or crabcakes) and Old Bay seasoning.
When I moved to Maryland 7 years ago, I noticed the locals put Old Bay seasoning on EVERYTHING! They season corn-on-the-cob, french fries (which is actually not too bad), popcorn, pasta, cocktails (Old Bay Bloody Mary, anyone?), and even on ice cream (gasp)!
Since I live here, I thought sharing an Old Bay Buffalo Wings recipe from Food and Wine would only be appropriate. To help with the guilt-free feeling, these are baked to crispy perfection (not fried), which makes this recipe even more of a winner in my book!
You may find the original Old Bay Buffalo Wings recipe from Food and Wine here.
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
- 2 pounds chicken wingettes and drumettes
- 2 1/2 tablespoons red hot sauce, preferably Frank’s Red Hot
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Preheat the oven to 450° (original recipe calls for 500°, but I usually bake at 450° and it turns out great).
Use a heavy-duty pan that can withstand high heat (you don’t want your pan to warp).
Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with vegetable oil.
Pat the chicken wings dry. Mix the flour with the salt and Old Bay seasoning in a bowl. Add the chicken and toss to evenly coat.
Place the chicken wings on the baking sheet in a single layer (make sure to spread them out, so they will evenly cook) and spray or lightly brush with vegetable oil.
Roast the chicken for 35 to 45 minutes, turning at least once, until nicely browned and crispy.
In a bowl, toss the baked chicken wings with the hot sauce, butter, and Worcestershire sauce and serve immediately.
Serve with whatever dip you want – ranch, blue cheese – or eat as is, it’s a buffalo wing recipe worth keeping in your rotation!

I am originally from MD & love Old Bay. I would have never thought of adding to buffalo wings! Thanks for giving me the idea & recipe!
