Buffalo Fig Wings

Not your usual buffalo wings! These wings are dressed up with fig preserves, giving them a hint of sweetness to go along with a fiery spice.


  • 3 pounds chicken wings, cut at the joint
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons hot sauce (preferred brand: Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1/4 cup fig preserves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed sheet tray with foil and lightly spritz with nonstick spray.

Add the wings to the prepared sheet tray and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Bake until golden and crisp, 45 to 50 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through baking.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the hot sauce and fig preserves and stir until melted together. Simmer over medium heat, until just thickened, about 2 minutes.

Place wings into a large bowl, drizzle with the sauce and toss.
