Restaurant Style Spicy Chicken Wings and it’s Baked!

Wohoo! Finally, I made restaurant style chicken wings in my kitchen, it’s crispy, juicy and it’s BAKED!!!

I know there are throngs of people out there just like me who find it absolutely hard to resist chicken wings. To stop with just three or four wings is a tough thing to do. I’ve experienced that the complete pleasure is achieved only if the whole plate of wings is emptied in one sitting, any different opinion?

Whenever I indulge myself in chicken wings, my husband will shoot this comment : “You can’t eat wings like this, this is meant for guy’s” and he earns all my hatred at that moment. My reply would be “I don’t give a damn” !! Yes, I love chicken wings and I am sure there will be many women who are die hard fans of wings. The only difference is that men enjoy it without much guilt and women enjoy each and every wings with too much guilt. Chicken wings, purely a guilty pleasure!

I had a misconception all these years that making restaurant style chicken wings in my kitchen is almost close to impossible. But after making this, I am out of this thought and now I know that I can make it in my kitchen just like restaurant style. And the best part is it’s baked, not at all fried…

Wohoo! what more do I need than a baked, crispy, juicy and spicy chicken wings just like restaurant style? I adapted this recipe from Allrecipes.com. The original recipe called for frying the wings, but I baked it. I was spell bound to see that even the baked ones came out crispy, juicy and tasted just like fried ones.

I made a spicy sauce to coat the baked chicken wings as well, this enhanced the taste of the wings a million times.

Note: To make crispy baked wings: you must marinate the wings for at least an hour or an hour and a half. This is the key to making the wings crispy. So, please don’t fail to do so.

Baked Spicy Chicken Wings- restaurant style

Ingredients:

  • Chicken wings, skinless or skin-on- 12 (skin-on wings turn much crispier and tastes better)

For marination:

  • All-purpose flour- 1/2 cup
  • Paprika- 1 tsp
  • Cayenne pepper or chili powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Salt- 1/4 tsp

For making the hot sauce:

  • Butter- 1/4 cup
  • Hot sauce- 1/4 cup
  • Ground black pepper- 1/4 tsp
  • Garlic powder- 1/4 tsp

Instruction:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Clean the chicken wings, if you want you could remove the skin or keep it (it’s up to you).
  • In a small bowl, combine all-purpose flour, paprika, cayenne pepper or chili powder and salt.

  • Place the chicken wings in a large glass bowl.
  • Coat the wings evenly with flour mixture.

  • Cover the dish with a plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator.
  • Let marinate for an hour or 90 seconds.
  • Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray, preferably Pam. Or line the baking sheet with aluminum foil greased with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place the marinated chicken wings on the sheet and lightly spray the wings with non-stick cooking spray.

  • Bake for initial 45 minutes at 350F.

  • After 45 minutes of baking, increase the oven temperature to 375 F.
  • Take the wings out and spray them with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Bake them again at 375 F for another 10 minutes, this would make the wings crispy.

Making the sauce:


 

  • Make the sauce while the wings are baking.
  • Heat a saucepan over low heat, add the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper and garlic powder, stir together.
  • Let the butter melt and stir till the mixture is well blended.
  • Remove from the heat and pour the sauce over the baked crispy chicken wings.
  • Serve the wings along with hot sauce on the side. Dip the wings in hot sauce if you want it to be more spicy.

Tips:
