Oven baked chicken wings Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken wing portions
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground mustard
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil or parchment paper and placing a wire rack over it.
  2. Dry the chicken wings thoroughly using paper towels.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken wings with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  4. In a separate small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, ground mustard, paprika, salt, chili powder, and red pepper flakes.
  5. Generously sprinkle this spice mixture over the chicken wings, tossing them to ensure an even coating.
  6. Arrange the wings skin side up on the wire rack and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. After 20 minutes, flip the wings and continue baking for another 15 minutes until they are crispy and cooked through.
  8. Serve the wings hot, accompanied by ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.

Notes:

  • Olive oil not only helps the dry rub adhere to the wings but also aids in crisping them up in the oven. You can opt for a spray version of olive oil if preferred.
  • The recipe uses a savory-sweet dry rub. Feel free to substitute it with 2 ½ tablespoons of your favorite wing rub.
  • For spicier wings, consider adding ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the spice mix.

Oven baked chicken wings FAQS

Why are my chicken wings not getting crispy in the oven?

There could be several reasons why your chicken wings aren’t getting crispy in the oven. Firstly, the wings might be too wet; moisture on the skin can prevent it from becoming crispy. Patting the wings dry thoroughly with paper towels before cooking can help. Secondly, overcrowding the pan can cause the wings to steam rather than crisp up. Make sure they’re spaced out evenly on the rack. Additionally, the oven temperature might be too low. Cooking at a higher temperature can help achieve a crispier skin. Finally, using a wire rack in the baking sheet ensures heat circulates around the entire wing, aiding in crispiness.

How long to cook chicken wings in the oven Jamie Oliver?

Jamie Oliver’s recipes for chicken wings can vary, but a general guideline for cooking chicken wings in the oven, as per his style, would be about 30-40 minutes at a high temperature (around 400°F or 200°C). It’s always best to check the specific recipe for precise cooking times and temperatures.

How long do wings have to be in the oven?

Typically, chicken wings need to be in the oven for about 40-45 minutes at 400°F (205°C). This time can vary slightly depending on the size of the wings and your oven’s characteristics. The wings should be flipped halfway through the cooking time to ensure they are evenly cooked and crispy.

Is it better to bake chicken wings at 350 or 400?

Baking chicken wings at 400°F is generally better for achieving crispy skin. A higher temperature helps to render the fat more effectively and crisp up the skin. Baking at 350°F can still cook the wings thoroughly, but they might not be as crispy as they would be at a higher temperature. If you prefer a balance between ensuring they are cooked through and achieving some crispiness, starting at 350°F and then increasing the oven temperature towards the end of cooking can be effective.
