25 May Old Bay Chicken Wings
We moved to the DC area a little over a year ago and, I have to be honest, I’d never really had Old Bay seasoning until we got here. But my God if I’m not addicted now. Well, there is this bar downtown that serves Old Bay wings (and this amazing mango jalapeno martini) that I have to get at least once a month. They are really that good. I knew they couldn’t be that hard to make at home, right?!
Lucky me, they aren’t!
If you like a dry rub and wings with a delicious, salty, crispy skin – this recipe is for you.
- 2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3 pounds chicken drumettes, wingettes, and drumsticks (wingettes and drumettes are often sold separately.)
- Preheat the oven to 500°. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with vegetable oil.
- Mix together Old Bay, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. Place wings in a large bowl and sprinkle with Old Bay mixture, tossing to coat evenly. Arrange wings in a single layer on wire rack coated with cooking spray and placed over foil covered baking sheet.
- Roast the wingettes and drumettes for 20 minutes (drumsticks for 45 minutes), turning once or twice, until browned and crispy.
