HOW DO YOU MAKE BAKED CHICKEN WINGS?
This recipe starts with our main ingredient, chicken wings. The wings are cleaned and then tossed in grapeseed oil or vegetable oil. They are then coated with the seasoning rub and baked on a rack until golden brown and crispy.
TIPS FOR BAKED CHICKEN WINGS
- I highly recommend thoroughly thawing the wings if they are frozen. This will avoid having too much moisture.
- Remove all the feathers
- You can remove the wingtips if you want, but not recommended. I removed the wings tips in this recipe because I wanted to make chicken stock.
- Planning a party, purchase “party style wings” at your local supermarket, Costco or BJ’s store.
- Always coat the wings with light oil for the best results. Use vegetable oil, coconut oil or grapeseed oil. You can use olive oil if that’s what you have but the seasoning blend will stick better when light oil is used.
- Noubess Poultry Seasoning, Noubess Garlic, and Herb Seasoning and Noubess BBQ Seasoning are perfect for baked chicken wings.
HOW CLEAN AND CUT CHICKEN WINGS
You probably have read somewhere on the blog that cleaning chicken wings or poultry is essential. In the Caribbean, cleaning any type of poultry, meat and seafood include lemon, lime or vinegar. Some people will create an acidic bath (with lemon juice or vinegar mixed with water) to rinse the chicken wings. Other people will rub lemon or lime on each chicken wing and then rinse with room temperature water.
Whatever option you choose is up to you. But at least please do give the chicken wings a good rinse. You do not know how your chicken wings were handled during packaging.
Cutting the wings is easy and may require some skills if you are unsure of yourself. If you don’t like to cut meat, it is best to buy chicken wings that have already been separated, wings tips, wingettes, and drumettes.
On a clean cutting board, stretch out the chicken with the inside portion facing up. Make a small incision at the joint between the wingtip and the wingette and push your knife through. Repeat the same step for the joint between the drumette and wingette. You may have to push your knife down if you feel a little bit of resistance.
HOW LONG DO YOU COOK CHICKEN WINGS?
Normally chicken wings take about 45 minutes to 1 hour in a 400 degrees F oven depending their size. Not all oven temperatures are the same. You will have to keep an eye on the wings so they do not burn.
Cooking the wings on a rack will ensure that the heat will evenly circulate when baking at high heat.
If you’re looking for an easy snack to make kids eat their vegetables (carrot and celery sticks), make this recipe. This recipe will be a crowd-pleaser at your next gathering.
- Clean and cut the wings to separate the wingettes from the drumettes. Pat dry.
- Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil sheet(s). Place an oven-safe cooling rack on top of the prepared baking sheet and spray it with non-stick cooking spray, and set aside.
- Combine all dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken wings and drizzle the oil. Use a rubber spatula to toss gently and to coat each piece.
- Reserve about 1 – 2 tablespoon of the seasoning blend to sprinkle on the cooked wings later. This step is optional
- Sprinkle the dry seasoning mixture and use either the rubber spatula or your hands to massage all of the chicken wings, coating evenly.
- Add the chicken wings to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or up to one hour, depending on the size of the wings.
- Serve with your favorite dipping sauce with a few sticks of celery and carrots.
