The big game is approaching. So while I actually have no idea who is playing or where the Super Bowl is taking place, I think I’ve got your back in the food department. And that’s worth something, right?
These wings are replayed around here again and again. I always keep a container of the dry rub to have on hand so getting these in the oven is such a cinch.
They are sweet, smokey and have the perfect crisp crust…Every one of us goes into devour mode when they hit the table. Throw them in a serving dish with bleu cheese dressing and fresh cut veggies and you can call one perfect meal!
Our Favorite Chicken Wings
1/3 Cup Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Smoked Paprika
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
3-4 Pounds Chicken Wing Sections
3 Tablespoons Peanut Oil or other high heat cooking oil
Bleu Cheese Dressing, for serving-recipe here
Preheat oven to 450 and line two baking sheets with foil. Place a baking rack inside of each baking sheet and set aside.
In a small bowl combine the sugar, paprika, garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper. Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle on the spice rub and toss the wings well to ensure they are evenly coated.
Lay wings in a single layer on top of each baking rack. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and skin is deep golden brown, nearly charred, flipping halfway in between cooking. Serve with bleu cheese dressing, if desired.
