Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings

Here are the baked wings with Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce.
The recipe on the bottle says: Bake wings at 500 F for 20 min then toss wings with this sauce.
I made some changes, I added some seasoning and bake at lower temperature for longer time.
Super easy.

2 lb chicken wings, cut at the joint (discard the wingtips or save for stock)
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Wings Sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons nutella
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon sliced roasted almonds


Set grill to a medium high heat.
Sprinkle pineapple slices with sugar on both sides and place on the grill. After 2-3 minutes rotate the pineapple slices on the grill to create nice grill marks and after another 2-3 minutes turn on the other side and grill for another 5-6 minutes rotating once.
Arrange slices on a plate.
Mix nutella with the almond extract and drizzle it over the grilled pineapple. Sprinkle roasted almonds on top.
