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.
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.
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.
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!
