  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line 18x12-inch rimmed sheet pan with foil. Place rack on top of foil. Spray rack and foil generously with cooking spray. In small bowl, stir together ranch dressing and hot sauce; cover and refrigerate.
  • 2
    In gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix flour and taco seasoning mixes. Add chicken to bag; seal, and shake to coat chicken. Place in single layer on rack. Discard any remaining flour mixture. Brush both sides of chicken with melted butter.
  • 3
    Bake 25 minutes. Turn chicken. Bake 18 to 22 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F). Transfer to serving platter, and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with dressing.

Expert Tips

  • Patting the chicken wings dry before coating in the flour mixture ensures even coating. If using frozen wings, thaw completely before patting dry and coating in the flour mixture.
  • No green chile sauce? Standard red will work just fine as a substitute, but be careful! Heat levels can vary widely.
