Honey Ginger Baked Chicken Wings

Many years ago, there was a wing restaurant in my town that had the best chicken wings in dozens of flavors.  On top of that, they also had a 10-cent wing night.  I’m not sure how any restaurant could offer wings at 10 cents a piece, but they were always packed.  Despite visiting that place almost every week for wings, I have never tried making them at home until now. 

When Mr. Spice contacted me about creating a few recipes using their sauces, I thought chicken wings would be a great option.  Instead of frying them, as they’re usually prepared, I wanted to make a healthier baked option that still comes out crispy and this recipe was born. Enjoy!

How to Make Gluten Free Baked Chicken Wings

Getting the crispy outside on your chicken wings could not be easier.

  1. Remove your chicken wings from the package and dry them with a paper towel.
  2. Put the dried chicken wings into a large ziploc bag.
  3. Add paprika, garlic powder, baking powder and salt.
  4. Seal the bag.  Shake and massage the wings to get them well coated in the mixture.
  5. Remove the chicken wings from the bag and place them on a baking rack on top of a foil lined baking sheet.  Leave a little space between the wings so they can get crispy.
  6. Bake until crispy, about 40 minutes.

How to Make Smothered Chicken Wings

Place your cooked chicken wings in a bowl.  Pour the prepared sauce over the wings.

Stir to coat the wings, or if you’re feeling brave give them a few tosses in the air until the wings are smothered with delicious sauce.
