The Best Spicy Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings

These Spicy Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings are so delicious!  As the title states, they are spicy, crispy, and baked in the oven, so they pretty much cook themselves. 

Combine the spices in an extra-large ziplock or bowl and marinate for about 30 minutes.

Line a baking sheet with foil AND parchment paper (trust me on this one, you need the parchment paper it helps with the crispy factor) and throw in an oven set at 420, and in no time at all, you’ll have some AMAZing chicken wings for minimal effort.

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but chicken wings are hard to find right now in stores.  I have a locally owned small grocery store that I’m lucky enough to find wings in most of the time. 

I have noticed that large chain grocery stores I visit rarely have chicken wings in stock. 

According to USFoods, the national-wide chicken wing frozen supply is the lowest since 2012.  Where are all the wings going to?

Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings Ingredients

These wings call for spice ingredients you probably already have on hand.  If you don’t have them, then buy them because you’ll be making these wings over and over again.  They are that good!

Add Chicken wings to the spice mix.

I like to massage the spices into the wings through the ziplock bag to make sure the spices are evenly distributed.  Let the wings “marinate” in the spice mixture for 30 minutes or so.

Baking Spicy Crispy Wings in the Oven

Preheat the oven to 420 (parchment paper can be baked safely at this temperature).  Line a baking sheet with sides with foil for easy clean-up.  Top the foil with a sheet of parchment paper.  To make parchment paper easier to handle, I fold the piece in 1/4ths and then wade it up, so the whole thing gets crinkled.  Then I spread it out, smoothing it on top of the foil.

Dump wings onto the prepared oven sheet.  Take care to space them out so that air will circulate around each wing.

Funny fact – I was showing my husband the images for this Spicy Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings post, and I told him, “As many times as I’ve made this recipe, I can’t believe I’ve never taken a photo of the wings in a bowl or on a serving platter after they have all baked.”

He told me he’d fix that.  He went to the store and bought a few packs of wings, mind you; he NEVER goes to the store.  We live out in the country, and he drove to town to buy ME some more chicken wings so I could get the photo I need.  He didn’t do it for himself or his work lunch tomorrow.  Haa!

Here’s a plated photo from today for this yummy chicken wings recipe
