Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings


Happy New Year everyone. I hope all of you are looking forward to year 2014. I know I am :) Let's start the new year with something healthy. I am sure most of us love fried chicken wings. I know I do but I am trying to lessen our consumption of fried foods so I’ve done a few trial runs on creating crispy oven bake wings. I am trying to get it as crispy as the fried ones but minus all the oil. Well, I came up with this. It has crispy coating, juicy and tender meat and yes way less calories than the deep fried ones. I have to warn you. This is highly addictive so don’t overeat.

 

Ingredients:

6 – 8 whole chicken wings

Marinate:

1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
½ tsp cayenne powder


Coating:

½ cup rice flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Olive oil or canola oil spray


1. Clean the wings and cut it into three pieces through the joints. Discard wing tips; add remaining “drumettes” and “flats” to mixing bowl with marinade, making sure the marinade covers the wings. 2. Let wings marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hour. If you have the time you can let them marinate overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and put a rack on top of it. Set it aside. 4. In a shallow bowl, rice flour, combine cornstarch, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix well. Coat the each piece of the wings with the flour mixture. Dust off any excess flour. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Make sure each piece is not touching each other and has enough space around.
 5. Lightly mist the coated chicken with oil spray. Bake for 45 - 55 minutes until the chicken has a golden brown color. Turn it wings over half way through the baking.
  6. Take out of the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite sauce
