The Best Damn Gluten-Free Buffalo Wings

Is there anything better than hot wings? (Hint, the answer is no; there isn't.) And when you're gluten free, buffalo wings are one of the first things off the menu. But with this easy recipe, you can enjoy hot wings again and these are so good you can even serve them to your friends who can eat gluten and they won't notice a difference!

Gluten Free Buffalo Wings Recipe

These wings are baked in the oven and are still crispy even though they're smothered in spicy sweet buffalo sauce, but if you'd like them especially crispy, swap the oven for a deep fryer and revel in the crunch. Like any proper American buffalo wing, these are served with raw celery and carrots and a dipping sauce. Buffalo wing purists will attest that blue cheese is the sauce du'jour for dipping, but I'm a ranch dressing girl. Feel free to use your favourite sauce; no judgement here!


For the buffalo wings
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic granules/powder
1/4 teaspoon gluten free Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon sunflower oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 kilo chicken wings, cut into flatsand drums
40 grams butter
250 grams chickpea flour
300 ml hot sauce
ranch dressing or blue cheese

Gluten-Free Crispy Buffalo Wings

Gluten Free Crispy Hot Wings

Traditional buffalo wings rely on flour to make them crispy, but those who follow a gluten-free diet cannot eat flour and rice flour just doesn't crisp up the same way. But a few years ago, I stumbled across the perfect gluten-free flour that produces amazing gluten free fried chicken. The secret is chickpea or besan flour. Trust me, once you fry chicken with chickpea four, you'll never miss fried chicken again!

Get ready to make this your go-to buffalo wings recipe; you'll whip it out for any party you have coming up - New year's Eve, for watching the big game or whenever you need a party platter!


  1. Preheat the oven to 200c/400f.
  2. Joint the chicken wings by cutting them into drumsticks and flat pieces, wash and drain.
  3. Rub the chicken wings with oil and set aside.
  4. Add the chickpea flour and salt to a large zip seal bag and add the chicken wings. Close the bag and toss to evenly coat the wings in the seasoned flour.
  5. Shake off the excessflour from the wingsbefore arranging on baking trays lined with foil or greaseproof paper. Don't overcrowd the trays.
  6. Bake the wings for 10 minutes, turn over and bakefor a further 10 minutes.
  7. Make the buffalo sauce while the wings bake by whisking all the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl.
  8. Divide the sauce evenly between two bowls and toss the cooked wings in one bowl before returning to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
  9. Remove the wings from the oven, coat in the remaining sauce and serve.
