This Easy Chicken Wings Recipe is a healthier and more flavorful way to cook your favorite appetizer recipe.
I’ve been experimenting with easy chicken recipes lately, and I think I’ve found a new favorite chicken recipe to add to the list. I love that this recipe is healthier than traditional fried wings because it’s baked in the oven instead of fried.
The Best Chicken Wings Recipe
We already know we love Oven Fried Chicken, so I thought it would be perfect. This will make any wing-loving husband (or wife!) pretty darn happy on Valentine’s Day. You’re welcome, Pat!
Baked Wings (Instead of Fried)
When someone says wings, your mind probably immediately goes to the fried kind you order at restaurants. Don’t get me wrong, those are AMAZING.
I’ll eat them any day and be perfectly happy. But what I love about this recipe is that they are baked instead of fried.
Baking chicken wings in the oven instead of deep-frying means they are that much healthier, and they’re so much easier to make too. Less mess and cleanup! Win win.
Cover these babies in the most deliciously simple seasoning, bake, and serve!
Dry Rub Seasoning and Dipping Sauces
This Oven Baked Chicken Wings Recipe is a great base that goes with any type of dipping sauce.
That’s really all they need. They come out of the oven crispy (YES, it’s POSSIBLE!), delicious, and with just the right amount of spice. See the recipe card for all the tips and tricks.
Even though I love to dip these, you don’t need to. The simple seasoning blend we have used has SO much flavor, and it is so easy.
I love the simplicity of the chicken spice rub. The wings get a coating of just flour, paprika, garlic, and salt and pepper.
