Old Bay Chicken Wings

It’s finally football season, and with that said there is always a discussion on Saturday afternoon, if not sooner, as to what we are going to eat while watching the football game(s).  Default items are always things like chili, or nachos, but if I event mention chicken wings around my oldest son, well I have to make them. As much as a picky eater as he is, I’ve always been surprised that he likes chicken wings, you know because he eats the chicken down to the bone. But I’m also extremely happy as he is going out and trying new things.  If you have been following me for some time, you know that I go out and experiment with an array of chicken wings.  My oldest is not a sauced wing kind of kid,  so I have been tinkering with dried spices. We all devoured my recent creation of the baked garlic and parmesan chicken wings, so I figured I would go out on a limb and try making old bay chicken wings.  They were a total hit.

Old Bay Chicken Wings

Let’s get started.

  • 2 lbs of chicken wings, drumette and wing separated
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
  • celery sticks, optional

I like to keep the wing tips in tact when cutting the chicken wings, but you do whatever you feel is best.

Place the wings in a sealable bag and add the soy sauce and garlic powder. Seal the bag, and move the wings around to get the wet and dry ingredients incorporated. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for a couple of hours.

When you are ready to make the wings, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. You can fry these in oil if you desire. I have been into baking them lately, but you do what you want to do.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the wings. Bake for about 1 hour, or until they are golden and crispy. I like my wings a bit on the dry side, over cooked if you will, but you cook them to your desired doneness.

How to make Old Bay Chicken Wings

Once cooked, add them to a large mixing bowl.

Pour on the melted butter, then add the Old Bay seasoning and give it a good toss, making sure the wings are nicely coated with the seasoning.

Dig in.

These are divine. If you have never had Old Bay seasoning, it’s a must try. I typically use the seasoning on shrimp or crab boils, but it works really well with these chicken wings.  Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
