The Best Chicken Wings Recipe 

This recipe for dry rubbed baked wings is so easy and delicious! 

I’ve been experimenting with easy chicken recipes lately, and I think I’ve found a favorite. I love that this recipe is healthier than traditional fried wings because it’s baked in the oven instead of fried. 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!

And of course, these oven baked chicken wings are the perfect appetizer for game day, Super Bowl Sunday, or any occasion. They make great party food!

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.

I usually serve these with Buffalo Sauce, Ranch, Blue Cheese, and Honey Mustard. I’m the kind of person that likes to have alllll the dipping sauces available when it’s time to eat.

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. 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.

The flavor goes well with literally any type of dipping sauce. We love them with buffalo sauce, but they would be great with honey mustard, garlic parmesan, or anything else you are partial to!

You don’t need to deep fry anything to make wings! That’s what I love about this recipe. Baking chicken wings in the oven is so much easier than frying them, and they are healthier too. This easy wings recipe is a lifesaver!

  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and dot it with butter.
  2. Combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, and salt & pepper in a mixing bowl.

  4. Bake for 30 minutes at 425°F. Then turn the wings over and bake another 15 minutes.
