    • Saturated Fat: 10-15 g (margarine may vary)
  • Carbohydrates: 3-5 g
    • Sugars: 1-2 g (more if honey is added)
  • Cholesterol: 110-150 mg

  • High Protein: Chicken wings are a good source of protein, essential for muscle repair and growth.
  • High Fat: The recipe contains a significant amount of fat, mainly from the chicken skin and the  margarine used in the sauce. Using margarine can change the type of fats (more unsaturated fats compared to butter’s saturated fats).
  • Sodium Content: Buffalo wings are typically high in sodium due to the hot sauce and added salt. Opting for a low-sodium hot sauce and controlling the added salt can help manage the sodium content.
  • Low Carb: This dish is low in carbohydrates, making it suitable for low-carb diets. However, the sugar content (especially if honey is added) can impact blood sugar levels slightly.


  • 2 lbs kosher chicken wings (ensure they are certified kosher)
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup of kosher hot sauce (e.g., Frank’s Red Hot, check for kosher certification)
  • 4 tbsp kosher margarine 
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • Optional: 1 tsp of honey for sweetness


  • Baking sheet
  • Aluminum foil or parchment paper
  • Mixing bowl
  • Saucepan

Preparation Steps

  1. Preheat Oven and Prep Baking Sheet
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (205°C).
    • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Season the Wings
    • Rinse the chicken wings under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels. Removing as much moisture as possible helps to get them crispy.
    • Place the wings in a large bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, tossing until evenly coated.
  3. Bake the Wings
    • Arrange the wings on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Turn the wings halfway through the baking time to ensure they are evenly cooked.
  4. Prepare the Buffalo Sauce
    • While the wings are baking, prepare the buffalo sauce. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the hot sauce, butter (or margarine for pareve), vinegar, and optional honey.
    • Stir the sauce until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well combined. Remove from heat.
  5. Toss Wings in Sauce
    • Once the wings are cooked and crispy, remove them from the oven and place them in a clean large bowl.
    • Pour the prepared buffalo sauce over the wings, tossing them until they are evenly coated in the sauce.
  6. Serve
    • Serve the wings hot, accompanied by kosher carrot sticks, celery sticks, and a kosher dip, such as ranch or blue cheese dressing (ensure the dressing is kosher and fits your meal’s dairy or pareve status).


  • Crispier Wings: For even crispier wings, you can broil them for the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. Watch them closely to prevent burning.
  • Sauce Variations: Feel free to experiment with different kosher-certified sauces based on your preference, such as BBQ, honey mustard, or teriyaki. Just ensure the sauce is kosher.
  • Serving: If you’re serving a meat meal and need the wings to be pareve, use margarine instead of butter in your sauce.

Enjoy your homemade kosher buffalo wings!
