Ain't no thing but a buffalo wing

Buffalo wings are entirely necessary for important (and not so important) football games. We didn't make it up, folks, it's science. Maybe even fate. The combination of pigskin, yelling, love for one's team and pride in one's enormous flatscreen can be matched, if not surpassed, only by a classic, spicy buffalo wing dunked in creamy blue cheese dressing (which you should also make yourself if you're doing the whole make-it-yourself thing).

1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup Frank's RedHot Sauce
  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease with cooking spray. 
  2. Mix flour, cayenne pepper and garlic powder in a medium bowl. 
  3. Dip each chicken wing into the mixture and coat completely. 
  4. Place the wings onto the baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
