I was hanging out on twitter a couple of weeks ago and I saw some talk about chicken wings. Love me some good ole chicken wings. Remember when you were much, much younger and could go to the bars for 10 cent (where the heck is the “cent” key???) wing night? Well I do and still to this day that’s how I like my wings. Fried nice and crispy, smothered in a nice hot sauce that isn’t too thick or too thin but just right…and oh yah, for 10 cents a piece…LOL!!!
Well those days are long gone. I think I have seen them advertised for 35 cents on special nights but to me that just isn’t the same. We do have one wing place where the wings are good, especially if you order them well done! But mostly wings out are a treat and when we do have a craving for them I make them really quick in the oven…watching the waist line you know and then I can have the sauce or the spices (depending on the mood) just right for me…
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Wash wings and remove any feathers that have been left on.
You can cut of the tips and separate them but my family actually fights over the tips (go figure???) so we leave them on.
Place in a large bowl and toss with about half of the spice/seasoning rub and arrange on a foil lined pan for baking.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
Spice/Seasoning Rub for Chicken Wings
1 Tbsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1-1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp paprika
Hot Sauce for Chicken Wings
1/2 bottle of Frank’s Red Hot Original
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 Tbs melted butter
Half of the wings I tossed with the Hot Sauce and the other half I tossed with the remaining Spice/Seasoning Rub.
