Baked Chicken wings

My dear friend turned 50 today, hard to believe we've been friends since 1976! The invite to the party said bring an appetizer and a bottle of wine.

Wings always go over very well, and they are a snap to make. My only complaint is that they used to be very inexpensive and in the last couple years the price hase risen beyond that of chicken legs.  Seem ridiculous to me.

Preheat oven to 350F.

I bake these, though traditionally they are fried. 

I shake them in a mixture of flour, salt, garlic powder, hot paprika, chili powder, and black pepper.

These are some big wings!

Separate them at the joints, reserve the tips for stock.

Put the flour, spices, and salt into a large plastic bag, shake to combine.

Add the cut wings - except for the tips in the bag. Toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake in the oven for an hour. Turn once at 30 minutes.

Toss in a large bowl with your favorite sauce. Traditional is a mix of hot sauce (vinegar based) and melted butter. I used Flaming Joe's Original Style Carribean  Jerk Sauce.

Serve with Celery sticks and bleu cheese dressing.

They were a big hit, and were gobbled up quickly. I love bringing home a clean plate!

Until next time Eat Well & Keep Digging!

  1. Those look wonderful. It is ridiculous how expensive wings have gotten. One more reason that raise my own chicken.

  2. Of course the same technique can be applied to chicken legs.

  3. David, your culinary expertise would make you my ideal party guest for a "Bring a bottle and an Appetiser" party...

  4. now i needs me some wings.. hey chickens!

  5. That's a problem, I'm guessing wings were not a popular snack until industrial chicken farming made the parting of birds economically viable.
