Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings

© 2024 |

Thanks to a wonderful homemade spice rub, these chicken wings are perfectly crispy outside and very juicy tender inside. The trick to crispy flavourful wings are to pat the wings dry with paper towels and marinate them in the fridge overnight. You don't even have to toss them with baking powder, which is another widespread hack to crispy up the wings. Enjoy them as an appetizer or party snack!

Spice Rub
  • 800 g Chicken wings without tips and halved at joints
  • 4 tbsp Tallow, melted (or olive oil)
  • 1 Lemon, cut into wedges, to serve
  • 1 tbsp Cilantro, chopped, to serve
  • 1+1/2 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1+1/2 tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika
  • 1/2-1 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1+1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Freshly milled black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  1. In a small bow, combine garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, Cayenne, pepper, and salt.
  2. Arrange the chicken wings in a large bowl or tray, drizzle with melted tallow or olive oil, and sprinkle with the spice rub. Mix thoroughly so the chicken is thoroughly coated. Allow to rest for at least an hour or up to overnight in the fridge, if possible.
  3. Preheat your oven to 230C/450F and set the rack to the middle position.
  4. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking tray and place it in the hot oven. Bake for 45-55 minutes until deep golden and crispy. Garnish with lemon wedges and cilantro.

Nos encantan las alitas al horno con especias, utilizo las que tengo en casa y quedan igual de doraditas y ricas que las tuyas que tienen un aspecto estupendo.

Gracias por la receta. Me gusta el pollo. Te mando un beso.

Eva Taylor 2/7/24 17:06

I adore chicken wings and your's look so plump and juicy with crispy skin. I've always used the baking powder trick but I will try drying them in the fridge overnight next time.

I often buy grilled chicken wings at my local supermarket; They are the cheapest and tastiest grilled product!

These crispy chicken wings sound absolutely delicious! The homemade spice rub with garlic, onion powder, smoked paprika, and a hint of cayenne must give them an incredible flavor

Granny Sue 3/7/24 14:52

A fan of chicken wings and I also like using dry spice rub - garlic powder, onion powder, curry power, turmeric, black pepper

Hi Angie, Great looking chicken wings! We never thought about making them in the much easier and less messy too. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
