Epic Dry Rubbed Chicken Wings
From Susan Lee-MacDonald: One of my favourite chicken wing recipes. Even kids like it. Full flavour but not spicy. https://www.thechunkychef.com/epic-dry-rubbed-baked-chicken-wings/
Ingredients EPIC DRY RUB:
▢ 1/2 Tbsp ancho chile pepper
▢ 1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika
▢ 1/2 Tbsp onion powder
▢ 1/2 Tbsp kosher salt
▢ 3/4 Tbsp light brown sugar, packed
▢ 3/4 tsp chili powder
▢ 3/4 tsp paprika
▢ 3/4 tsp cumin
▢ 1/2 tsp garlic powder
▢ 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (less if you're worried about the heat level)
▢ 1/2 tsp dried mustard powder
▢ 1/4 tsp black pepper
▢ 1/4 tsp dried oregano
▢ 1/4 tsp dried ground thyme
▢ 4 lbs chicken wings, thawed completely if using a frozen bag
▢ 2 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil
Instructions MAKE DRY RUB AND CHICKEN WINGS:
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with 2 sheets of aluminum foil (or 1 heavy duty sheet). Top that with an oven safe cooling rack and spray it with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Combine all dry rub ingredients in a small mixing bowl, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add chicken wings and vegetable oil. Use a rubber spatula to toss gently to coat.
Sprinkle in about half to 2/3 of the dry rub mixture and use your hands to massage it into all of the chicken wings, coating evenly. Feel free to use all the dry rub, but for a coating like in the photos, 1/2-2/3 of the mixture does just fine.
Add chicken wings to prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
