These spicy buffalo wings (or drumsticks) are a delicious and fun meal to make. They are tangy and depending on what hot sauce you choose can be as spicy as you like. If you are using drumsticks instead of wings double the ingredients for the powder coating. I suggest serving this meal with rice and greek yoghurt or just chips if that is what you prefer.


  • 3/4 cup Plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 20 Chicken wings or 12 drumsticks
  • 1/2 cup Melted butter
  • 1/2 cup Hot sauce your preference however I use Culley's Buffalo Wing Sauce


  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and lightly grease with cooking spray. Place the flour, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt into a large resealable plastic bag, and shake to mix.

  2. Add the chicken wings, seal, and toss until well coated with the flour mixture. Place the wings onto the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.

  4. Whisk together the melted butter and hot sauce in a small bowl.

  5. Dip the wings into the butter mixture, and place back on the baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, and crispy on the outside, about 45 minutes.Turn the wings over halfway during cooking so they cook evenly.

  6. Remove from oven and serve.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
