We are making the effort to be more healthy lately so when it came time to dredge the wings in flour, I reached for the whole wheat flour instead. The boys claim that these wings were the crispiest wings ever...even better than the other wing recipes I've posted about such as this post, this post, or this post. Just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I made these wings again last night with the same crispy baked goodness. This is another one of those recipes where I didn't really measure too closely on this one.
Crispy Baked Chicken Wings - printable recipe
|Big ole package o' wings|
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp dry mustard powder
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp black peper
- (If you have it on hand, 1 tbsp smoked paprika goes well with this mixture too!)
- 1 pkg chicken wings and drumettes (This was a Costco size package)
Line 2 baking sheets with a sheet of foil and a sheet of parchment paper. I find the wings get crispier on parchment then they do if you use a silpat or silicone sheet liner.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients until well blended.
Rinse the chicken wings with cold water and drain.
Dump the wings into the flour and stir to coat all of the wings. Use your hands or a fork...what ever works to get each wing coated.
Shake the excess flour off the wings.
Spread the wings out on the sheets. If the wings are too crowded together, they will not crisp properly so make sure to give each of them their space.
Bake for 25 minutes then flip the wings over and rotate the pans.
Bake for another 25 minutes.
Once these wings are done you can douse them with your favourite hot sauce. (Or any sauce you like)
I opted to toss some of the wings with some Hawaiian black lava sea salt and pepper for the most amazing salt and pepper wings EVER! (If only I had a lemon to zest and add to the salt and pepper....mmmmmm)
Tasty, tasty, tasty...
Until next time, stay warm and eat well!
