Crispy Crunchy Dry Rub Oven Baked Wings

What You'll Need

-4 lbs. chicken wing sections ( I prefer the smaller wings for extra crispiness )

-1 celery bunch  cut into long strips  for side serving

-1 small bag of baby carrots for  side serving

-Ranch dressing (make sure to choose a healthy ranch, no added sugar)

-2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

(for the dry rub)

-2 Tbsp. chili powder

-2 Tbsp.  smoked paprika

-1Tbsp cumin

1 tsp Italian seasoning

-1/2 Tbsp. onion powder

-1 tsp garlic powder

-1/2 Tbsp.  salt

-1/2 tsp dried mustard powder

-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper or black pepper  (cayenne for a more spicy option)


Preheat the oven to 400 F degrees.  If you have convection or air bake mode use this for added crispiness.  Line a large cookie sheet, with sides ,with  aluminum foil. Place a baking wire rack on a cookie sheet so wings do not touch the foiled sheet. Coat wire rack with non-stick spray.

Wings need to be fully thawed and dry.

In a small mixing bowl combine all dry rub ingredients, stir and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, toss wings with olive oil to coat them all.

Divide the dry rub into 2 portions, that  way if it becomes clumpy you have more fresh to use for better coating of the wings.  Place the 1st half of the dry rub in a small shallow bowl and dip a few chicken wings at a time, roll them to fully coat then place on a wire rack on a baking sheet. Repeat until all wings are rubbed.

Place in the oven. Cook for 45-60 min depending on the size of the wing.  Allow to cool, move to a plate, serve with the side celery and carrots and a healthy ranch for dip.
