Not So Hot (Spicy) Oven Fried Hot Wings

I am still trying to find a healthier alternative to deep fried buffalo wings. There were baked in the oven at a high temperature which made them crispier than usually but they did not have enough heat for our liking. If you like mild buffalo wings these would be a hit. Next time I will add extra hot sauce or some chili powder to the mix.

Oven Fried Hot Wings
2 Tbsp flour 
1 tsp kosher salt
2 lbs chicken wings separated into wingettes and drumettes 
2 1/2 Tbsp red hot sauce (I used Big Pappi's Original because it was open.)
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 500°. Line a large baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt (Next time I would add 1 tsp chili powder at this point). Add the chicken and toss to coat. Spread the chicken on the baking sheet in a single layer and spray with cooking spray. Roast the chicken for 45 minutes, turning once or twice, until browned and crispy.
Meanwhile, combine the hot sauce and butter and mix until well combined. When the wings are done toss them in the hot sauce mixture. Return the wings to the baking pans and place in the oven just long enough to all the sauce to set 1-2 minutes. Makes the wings a little less messy to eat for those of us who do not like to get out hands dirty.
Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping.
