Yield 4
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds chicken wing sections, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons paprika
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar substitute
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne, more to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a wire rack over a baking sheet and spritz with oil spray.
  2. Add the chicken wing sections to a large bowl and drizzle with oil. Toss to coat. 
  3. Add all of the seasonings to a small bowl and stir together to combine.
  4. Sprinkle the dry rub over the chicken and use your hands to massage the seasoning into the chicken, making sure to coat each piece really well.
  5. Arrange wings on the wire rack, leaving a bit of space between each piece for air to flow.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through cooking. 
  7. Serve hot with ranch or blue cheese for dipping.

Notes

We love this combination of spices to make the perfect dry rub for chicken wings, but you can definitely swap things around and use what you have on hand. Cayenne is optional, but we like a bit of spice on our wings.

This rub would work well on other chicken parts as well, such as drumsticks, thighs, or breasts.
