Oh So Good Baked Chicken Wings

I’ve received a lot of requests for this recipe so I thought I would share my first ever recipe here on Let’s Talk Babies!

These chicken wings are so, so good. They are a huge hit with my whole family and we eat them frequently. The added bonus is that since they are baked they are much healthier than traditional wings. I usually serve them with carrots and celery sticks, but have also done them as a more traditional meal with rice and steamed veggies.

What You’ll Need:

– 2lbs of chicken wings

– 1-2 T of olive oil

– Salt and Pepper

– Cooking Spray

– 2 cups of flour

– About 1/4 cup of your favorite wing sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

To begin, cut your chicken wings into 3 sections and discard the wing tip.

Once all your wings are cut, place them in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with approximately 2 T of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. If you like your wings hot you could also add a dash of Tabasco at this point too if you wanted. Toss the wings to coat.

In a large tuperware dish or a large ziploc bag place approximately 2 cups of flour. Transfer the wings to the dish or bag and shake to completely coat in flour.

Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray liberally with cooking spray.

Place wings on the baking sheet, being sure to shake off any excess flour first. Once all the wings are on the baking sheet spray each wing liberally with cooking spray.

Place wings in the oven at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove from the oven, turn the wings over and place back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes.

Once wings are done place them in a large mixing bowl.  If you are going to be using the same wing sauce for all the wings place them all in the same bowl. Since I have no tolerance for spicy things and my husband loves his wings hot I usually use two different types of wing sauce so I transfer mine to two different bowls.

Add your wing sauce to the bowl, use as much or as little as you would like. I typically use a total of about 1/4 cup of wing sauce, a couple of tablespoons per batch of about 8 wings. Toss the wings so they are evenly coated.

Transfer wings to serving dish and enjoy!

These baked wings turn out crispy on the outside and nice and moist inside every time. They are super delicious. I pretty much always have a pack of wings in the freezer for those days when we are all craving them. Maya loves them! Although, I don’t put wing sauce on hers, she likes them plain.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Let me know what you think.
