My son is fairly sure he’s found his favourite recipe now… one that he thinks he can make for meals when he cooks on Tuesday nights. Baked Chicken Wings. When I first made this recipe I made enough for me and a couple for the lad. Hubby snagged a couple off my plate and before I knew what was happening I was making up another batch… They are considerably less fatty than any fried ones I’ve come across which is an added bonus.
This is a very simple recipe to make and would be easy to change up for the spices that you like best, to add a dipping sauce if you are inclined to have one, and add garnishes etc..
This is how we made it.
For every two pounds of chicken wings/drumsticks you’ll need
2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp sea salt (we used himalayan), and 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper.
You’ll need a baking sheet topped with parchment paper for ease of clean up.
Turn the oven on to 425.
Put your chicken into a bowl, drizzle them with the olive oil and mix well.
Then grind up your sea salt and sprinkle over the chicken and mix it up well, then add your pepper and repeat.
Lay out on your baking sheet, pop into the oven for 45-50 minutes (depending on your oven).
Turn at the halfway mark.
Then listen to the oohs and aahs of your family as they gooble up every ounce of meat … even a hubby who always leaves what I think is loads of meat behind.. they’ll clean the bones off so well you’ll be shocked!
