Directions for Making Chicken Wings at Home

Wing Sauce: Combine all of the spices together with water, brown sugar, tomato paste, and olive oil in a large bowl

Marinade: Coat the chicken wings with the spice mix. Let stand for at least 30 minutes. The longer you marinate, the more flavor the chicken wings will have. You can even marinade it for a day or two before baking.

Bake: Preheat the oven to 350F. Spread out the chicken wings on a baking sheet, or first place a wire rack on a baking sheet and then place the wings. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Flip the wings over halfway through. If you are like me and like crispy baked chicken wings, then you can set the oven to broil for another 2 minutes for each side.

When should you replace your spices? 

It’s very possible that you are not using all the spices you have there in your cabinet. It is recommended that you switch out ground spices every 3-4 years. Whole spices about every 4 years, and dry, leafy herbs every 1-3 years at the most.

  1. I love the idea of baked chicken wings instead of fried. Might try these with the addition of some buffalo hot sauce for an extra kick of flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
