BAKED BUFFALO WINGS (Rob Allison's)
Preheat oven to 425°. Line a roasting pan or baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange 8-12 chicken wings in the pan and lightly spray with Garlic Mist cooking and seasoning spray (available at G.F.S. stores) or garlic-flavored non-stick-spray. Sprinkle chicken wings with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and roasted garlic powder (available at Rafal Spice Co.). Bake for 30 minutes, turn wings over and bake 30 minutes longer. Remove from oven and transfer to a very large glass or metal bowl. Toss with a liberal amount of Frank's Buffalo Wing sauce (1/2-3/4 cup) til wings are well coated. Return to oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a serving platter. Garnish the hot wings with a sprinkle of Italian herbs. Finely chop the green part of a green onion (it will look like chopped chives) and sprinkle over the wings. Serve with celery stalks and blue cheese dressing.
