Delicious Baked Chicken Wings

I love chicken wings. They are one of my absolute favorite indulgences – they are crunchy, full of flavor, great for parties – and perfect for football gameday!

Wings are the best things to eat at any party – and while its daunting to make them at home, these wings are crazy easy and simple – they don’t take a long time to prepare, and are no-fuss!

These are perfect – so you can get back to prepping your party in no time!

Just pop them in the oven and coat when done – and let your guests think you slaved away for hours over hot oil!

The only problem with wings is deep frying them – not only is it way more calories – but it is kind of a pain in the butt!

These wings are crispy, crunchy, and taste just like they are fried – but with no oil! They are crunchy and delicious, right out of the oven.

What to enjoy with Baked Wings

Sweet and spicy baked chicken wings pair well with a variety of accompaniments, including:

  1. Cooling Dips: Ranch, blue cheese, or yogurt-based dips to counteract the heat.
  2. Vegetable Sticks: Celery and carrot sticks are classic choices.
  3. Starchy Sides: Potato salad, coleslaw, fries, or roasted potatoes can complement the wings.
  4. Pickled Vegetables: Pickles or kimchi provide a tangy contrast.
  5. Salads: Simple green salads with a vinaigrette dressing or a refreshing cucumber salad.
  6. Breads: Cornbread, dinner rolls, or garlic bread.
  7. Grains: Rice, especially if it’s a flavorful pilaf or a mild coconut rice, can balance out the spiciness.
  8. Beverages: Cold beers, sodas, or iced teas can help quench the heat.

You can mix and match these suggestions based on personal preferences and the exact flavor profile of your wings.
