Homemade Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks

No Super Bowl Sunday is complete without Buffalo sauce! These homemade Buffalo chicken drumsticks are the perfect way to get your fix.


For the Drumsticks:

  • 1 lb chicken drumsticks (approx. 4)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp salted butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp Buffalo sauce

For the Ranch Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp red onion, diced very finely
  • 2 tbsp water (you may need more or less)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400F. In a large mixing bowl, toss the drumsticks together with the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder until evenly coated. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until cooked through and the internal temperature reads 165F.
  2. 10 minutes before the chicken is finished cooking, melt the butter and mix the Buffalo sauce with it and set aside. In a small to medium sized mixing bowl, mix together all of the ranch sauce ingredients. Gradually mix in the water, until you reach your desired consistency. Set aside for serving.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, let it cool for 3 to 5 minutes. Toss the drumsticks with the butter and Buffalo sauce mixture until evenly coated. Serve with the ranch dipping sauce and enjoy!
