Oven Baked Chicken Wings

Chicken wings have become so popular that they are serving it at a lot of restaurant but I am not a fan of their wings. I find them too hard and too dry for my taste. I like my wings to have crispy skin, fall off the bone, and finger licking good. These easy wings are crispy without being fried. What is great about this dish is that you can serve them hot or cold. It works great wheather you are having a Super Bowl Party or just a something delicious to snack on. They only take 10 minutes to prepared and let it marinate for an hour or two and pop it in the oven. For this recipe you can add more cayenne pepper or sugar if you like it spicier and sweeter.

Ingredients:

10 – 12 chicken wings
3 tbsp of soy sauce
½ tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
2 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash and clean the chicken wings to make sure there are no stray feathers. Cut wings into portions through the joints, discarding wingtips (I left wingtips on).
2. Combine all the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Add wings and coat in mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or overnight, stirring occasionally.
3. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Cover a baking dish with aluminum foil. Drizzle it with some olive oil. Spread wings over the base, brush liberally with marinade. Roast for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the wings half way through the baking. Serve warm or at room temperature

Zurin, thanks for stopping by and thank you so much for the award.

Maybelle, I always find them too hard and dry for my taste :)

Cindy, paprika is for color and cayenne is for spiciness.

Chakhlere, thank you.

Food For Tots said...

These wings definitely are having "crispy skin, fall off the bone, and finger licking good". So irresistable to me!

Sophie said...

These do sound good, I don't like it when wings are dry either. These sound moist in the middle and flavorful, the flakey skin looks delicious.

Beachlover's Kitchen said...

your wing baked always look shinny and moist!! yummy!!

noobcook said...

I loved baked wings. Less hassle and cleaning up, crisper too :D

yyyap said...

I just discovered your blog, too!
I'm from Kuala Lumpur and am totally amazed at your ability to cook, take good photos, write simple recipes to follow and the sheer number of postings. I'm a big fan already.

ICook4Fun said...

Amy, yes I do. I will post it up soon.

Food for tots, yes this is really good. Crispy skin and fall of the bones.

Sophie, for me baking the wings is much better frying it.

Lesley, thank you.

Yyyap, thanks for stopping by and your kind words.

Noobcook, yes I like them too :)

The Little Teochew said...

These look really good!!! Perfectly and evenly browned. I never have luck with baked chicken wings, always end up frying them :( Am very tempted to give yours a try and see ...

Just a Plane Ride Away said...

Cheers from Holland! :-)

hi, i'm a filipino living in canada. i came across your blog when i was looking for a recipe for roasted chicken thighs. well, i like some of your recipes and i observed there is always a chili or hot pepper in the ingredients...just like how i'm used to because i grew up in a region where chili is very much important in every dish...and i like it. anyhoo, i'm always looking forward to your new recipes...and Thanks a lot!

Christelle said...

Totally agree with you, restaurant chicken wings don't do it for me either, I cook my own too. I tend to change the recipe to my whim a lot too :)

Quinn said...

Gertrude, thanks! Just so you know this tasted so good on my pork ribs and I was showered with praises all thanks to your recipe. You deserve a share of my praises... *blush!

These were great! I used the marinade for Super Bowl Sunday and my husband and I really enjoyed. I omitted the cayenne pepper because I didn't have it on hand, but they still came out very flavorful. Thanks for the recipe.

Hi, I tried this recipe and the wings came out perfect! I'm not buying wings again. I posted the recipe with a link to yours at http://mihaelapd.blogspot.com

Phillip said...

I tried the recipe and it tasted great. Cut back a bit on the cayenne, and added two tsp apricot jam (sweet tooth) to the marinade. excellent dish, thanks for the recipe.

I just ran across this recipe a couple of days ago and tried it today. I didn't have enough soy sauce so I had to improvise a little, but WOW! What delicious wings! Even my husband - who does not particularly like chicken wings - loved it! Next time I will have enough soy sauce on hand so that I can make this recipe as originally written.
