Zesty Baked Chicken Wings

Leave a comment

I was vegetarian for years and during that time, still craved the savory taste of chicken wings.  When I began to eat poultry again, this was the first thing on the menu.  Most wings in restaurants are breaded and fried, so I came up with a recipe that removes the breading and oil from the frying.  Trust me…these are good!

Makes about 30

In a small bowl blend the following:

  • 1 T chipotle powder
  • 1 T smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • If you like it spicy – add in a few shakes of cayenne


  • 2 ½ lbs pounds chicken wings, drummies and flats separated
  • Olive Oil spray


  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Spray oil to cover the bottom of a flat baking dish
  • Clean and prep the chicken wings.  Pat dry and spray lightly with the spray oil.
  • Place the wings in a large zip lock baggie.  Sprinkle the seasoning in the bag and shake to coat all wings.  You can marinate in the rub overnight, or use immediately
  • Place wings in oiled pan in a single layer
  • Bake wings until cooked through and skin is crispy, 30-40 minutes. Check biggest wing to make sure it is cooked through.  You can flip these half way through.  I like to utilize the last 5 minutes to put a quick broil to crisp up the skins.

Serve hot, dig in and enjoy!
