Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

Grab those extra napkins as these delicious finger licking baked wing dings are going to be the perfect solution for tonight's dinner, an appetizer or even your next game day or party. These chicken wings are just to die for are and super simple to make.

Every day my boys text me after school, "Whats for dinner?" It is much simpler for me to text wing dings or just wings so the name has just stuck.

With just 6 little ingredients and 45 minutes you can have these baked chicken wings on your table for the whole hungry crew. The skin is crispy and savory and too irresistible just to eat one. Tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. My boys love them so much they eat 20 chicken wing dings per hungry teenager in one sitting, maybe even more.

Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

Isn't it just purely amazing the amount of food hungry teenage boys can pack away in one sitting. I always warn my husband to keep his hands and feet away from their mouths or he could lose a digit. It is almost like watching a horror film, a shark in a feeding frenzy or maybe even a lion going in for the kill. Scouts honour, I really do feed them 3 square meals but you would think they have been stranded on a desserted island for years and this is the first time they have seen real food.

Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

My favourite question that always happens at the dinner table is..."Mom, are you going to eat that?- as the point to something on my plate... I have learned my lesson the hard way for many years and now always, always, always serve my self first and put my food on my plate before bringing it out to the cleanup crew. Do teenage boys even chew? One utterly important question, do teenage boys eat like this in front of their girlfriends too?

Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

I used to spend time trying to make deep-fried chicken wings with the spicy hot sauce to dip in but that has cardiac arrest written all over it. This is the baked slimmed down version of wing dings. These wings are so tasty you do not even need dipping sauces. These easy baked wing dings are gluten-free, lactose free and egg free so they have that going for them as well.

Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

The secret to tasty chicken wings is the longer marinade time. I like to marinade my wings for at least 4 hours. So, if you can do this before you go off to work or school, then you are good to go. The marinade needs time to penetrate the chicken so it is not just a layer of flavor on the top but you can taste it all the way through the wing. This is the secret to delicious wings.

I like to the use the chicken wings mid joints section as these are the meatier section of the wing. I guess you could really use any portion of the chicken you wish but you may have to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

So are you ready to make some rocking good wings for your hungry crew?

My easy wing ding marinade is super easy. You just wash and dry your chicken wings well and put them in a zipper plastic bag. Add a little olive oil, seasoned salt, paprika, garlic and pepper and shake well. If you like them spicy, then add a little of Kick n Chick seasoning by Weber. Bake and Enjoy!

Super Easy Baked Wing Dings

By HWC Magazine  , , , , ,

March 3, 2014

The skin is crispy and savory and too irresistible just to eat one. Tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Makes about 44 chicken wings, give or take.

  • Cook: 45 mins
  • Yields: 4 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager

Ingredients

Chicken mid-joint wings - 5 pounds (I used Tyson Frozen midjoint wings)

olive oil - 2 tablespoons

seasoned salt - 1 tablespoon

paprika - 1 teaspoon

garlic powder - 1 teaspoon

pepper - 1 teaspoon

Kick N Chicken Weber's Seasoning - optional (if you like spicy or can add dried red chili peppers to taste)

Directions

1Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F (232 degrees Celsius)

2Wash and dry your mid-section chicken wings. In a sealable plastic bag, add your chicken wings, olive oil, seasoned salt, paprika, garlic powder and pepper. Shake well to make sure the marinade is evenly distributed among the wings. Place marinating chicken wings in the refrigerator on a plate (in case of leakage) to chill for at least 4 hours.

3Place chicken wings on a greased pan. (I have to emphasise that whole greased pan thing so do it well as they do like to stick. In addition when you go to turn them be careful so you don't rip off the delicious crispy skin as this is the best part.) I like to put my wings on the pan with skin side down first. If your family/friends like their wings spicy, then you can add a little sprinkle of Kick n Chicken spice or dried red pepper flakes to add a little punch. If you like them mild, like me, then these are just perfect as is.

4Turn the wings after about 30 minutes of baking. Bake for another 15 minutes or until the wings are super crispy on the top. Remove from oven.

5Serve wing dings hot out of the oven with your favorite beer or rootbeer for the kids. Enjoy!

    YUM! These sound/look incredible!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  • Great!

  • Your wings look so crispyโ€ฆI can see why they would disappear quickly from your table.

  • It does seem that teenage boys have hollow legs, although I would be super happy to munch on these as much as your boys.
    ๐Ÿ™‚ Mandy xo

  • I remember my two brothers ploughing through their food at the dinner table and my sister and I just staring at them in shock, lol. My mother could never get the groceries from the car all the way into the kitchen without them tearing at the bags!
    This is a fantastic recipe, BAM, and I’m going to email and pin to my many cousins who eat gluten free. So easy, too! I love chicken wings but seldom make them but I will now! Perfect for game days and birthday parties.
    Have a great week!

  • Yumโ€“I am getting hungry looking at your photos! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ohlidia

    OMG Bam! LOVE the look of those wings! How delicious they must be!

  • YOu have me hankering after wing dings now! and when I get the chance, and soon, I will make them – love the idea of adding paprika to the mix. and as I’m the only meat eater in my home, and neither of us are teenagers anymore I can get to pig out all by myself ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I love the scene you described. I’ve never seen teenage boys eat like that, so maybe they don’t eat that way in front of girlfriends. Looking back I don’t remember anything like that. You’re preparing me for the future of Mr. N though. That will be interesting no doubt! And I’m sure he would love these wings too. They look delicious Bam!

  • kitchenriffs

    I certainly could inhale dinner when I was that age. Not to mention breakfast and lunch. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love your lightened up wings. The deep fried ones are great, but I just can’t handle that much fried stuff anymore (so I save frying for things like fries). These look terrific. Good recipe, fun post — thanks.

  • Love the fact that these are baked, just pinned. These look amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  • Easy and delicious? These sound great!

  • Eha

    These DO look scrumptious and not just for teenage boys! I must admit to buying wings lately to make stock only because of the fat content of the skin, but marinading and baking them will definitely take some of the ‘sin factor’ away and next time some are in the basket, shall make them and smile northwards towards you ๐Ÿ™‚ !

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Eha! That is a great idea to use chicken wings to make a rich and delicious stock. Hey, I was just reading in the “South Morning Post” today as they listed the top most expensive places to live and Sydney was number 5 and Melbourne was listed as number 6. Hong Kong was listed as number 12 or something like this. Of course, Singapore was number one for increased cost of living. One day we should just do some price comparisons of common food items and compare Auzzie dollar vs HKD on standard items like milk, bread or a 5 pound bag of chicken wings etc. Wishing you a super week. Take Care, BAM

  • I bet your boys can go through a ton of these delicious morsels.

  • I definitely have a boy that can take care of a batch of these in no time flat! So glad you’ve shared.. I think he’s getting a little tired of all my healthy recipes, lol! I love that these aren’t fried too! xx

  • Buongiorno, BAM! I stopped deep frying wings a while ago. There’s just too many negatives involved. Baking them now is the only way to go and your recipe sounds delicious. Of course they disappear. I understand that films of teen-aged boys eating lunch are used as training films for locusts. And the locusts can’t believe what they’re seeing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Bams Kitchen

      Buongiorno John, thanks for following along and giving me a little laugh today. Let this post be an eye opener for all of those mom’s and dad’s with young pre-adolescent boys. Start saving now, get that extra night job, not to save for college but just to feed these hungry teenage boys from about age 12 and on. However, most importantly don’t ever take your eyes off your plate of food as it will becomes central property if not guarded and protected. Have a super week! Take Care, BAM

  • OMG, they look so perfectly baked and crispy and juicy!

  • Gold – they look like tasty gold! I haven’t made chicken wings in a while so I’ve just put this on my grocery list for next week – thank you.
    Of course your boys eat like that in front of their girlfriends – if the girlfriend can’t handle it then she’s not a keeper. I’m picturing you disappearing someday so don’t go too long without a post or we’ll have to send someone to check on you. Now, can you imagine my mother’s face when Uncle Arthur brought 7 eating machines every Sunday? She only had 3 fussy girls to try to force feed so it was a horrifying experience for her I’m sure.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Diane, Thanks for your message. If you don’t hear me for awhile you should probably send somebody over to check on me as I most likely have been chained to the stove… LOL You should see the honey wish list my teenage boys have picked out for dinners and desserts and all kinds of kitchen activities. Both of my boys are huge foodies and love to cook as well and of course eat as you guys already know. I can’t even imagine having an extra 7 hungry teenage boys just pop over unplanned for Sunday dinner. Your mom was a saint.

  • I love the look of the glaze on these wings!

  • Very tasty looking indeed. I never cook these because they seem too fiddly. Now I can get stuck in and try something tasty indeed.

  • Lucky boys!

  • You have no idea how obsessed I am with these baked wings! SWOON! Gotta eat them soon.

  • I know what you mean when it comes to hungry teenagers- mine used to devour the freezer content (without warming it up!)until their eyebrows were frozen .
    The chicken wings look fantastic, perfect color and flavor.

  • I know how much boys can eat! My oldest was over for dinner yesterday and his plate was piled so high with food, I almost gasped! And he’s not a big guy…LOL…just good metabolism! We’d love these wings at our house!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hi Liz, I bet your son misses mom’s cooking very much so of course he is going to pile his plate high. My youngest teenager not only piles his plate high but has about 3 dinners when he comes home. I am not joking. He is super tall and thin and has a metabolism of a hummingbird. Take care, BAM

  • Yum! I could eat 20 or so myself! These look TASTY ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wow Bobbi, yours wings look so crispy on the outside! The spice blend looks absolutely delicious!

  • My kids, both a boy and a girl ate-a lot! They both had sports after school and both were starving when they got home. And if they didn’t eat they were hangry. And I tried to stay away from hangry ,so I cooked. Truth is they both still get crabby if they don’t eat! These wings look great. I love crispy!

  • I’d definitely make a meal out of these! They look perfect!

  • These do look finger licking good! I need to get my hands on some “Kick N Chicken Weber’s Seasoning” pronto!

  • The skin looks so crispy and delicious!!! We can eat wings every day if there are wings at home! ๐Ÿ˜€ Love paprika and garlic powder combo – I’ll give this recipe a try soon!

  • Juliana

    Yum! These wings sure look delicious! And so simple to make…
    Hope you are having a great week ๐Ÿ˜€

  • These look amazing! I know my whole family will love this!

  • I love chicken wings, and this recipe sounds perfect! Boys don’t stop eating for a long time ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Funny name sounds like a font, but looks so delicious

  • These wings look incredible! I am baking chicken wings tonight incidentally but it won’t look like these! Years ago, I loved going to tea shops with my husband and having bubble tea (hot or cold) and little eats such as wings that looked like these. Brings back good memories!

  • You are right about the marinating time! I try to marinate the wings early in the morning for dinner..and the flavours just penetrate through the wings..
    Your wings look great..the perfect beer snack..impossible to stop eating once you get started!

  • Paprika is something which does the trick to even a simple dish! I am sure these chicken wings are among the best in the town!!

  • Kathleen Richardson

    I’m sure, BAM, that my SIL and grandsons would love these. Not so, my vegetarian daughter ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I have a current obsession with midjoint wings and mine are sticky and gooey but I do miss the crispy skinned type – just never have had the courage to actually deep fry anything. These look AMAZING and will definitely be on in next week’s dinner !!

  • Isaac

    Awsome easy recipe made with ingredients that you have around the kitchen. Baked them then tossed in some Sweet baby rays. The skin stayed crisp just how I like. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

  • Amanda

    Second time I’ve made these and they are to die for. Seasonings are perfect & the wings turn out REAL crispy, just like the recipe says. The only thing I changed was I used the whole wing, including the tip, love that crunchy part. To those who write about how good they LOOK-do yourself a favor and make them. Thanks so much for this recipe, this is the only way I’ll make crispy wings.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Amanda thanks so much for your kind comment!! I am so delighted to hear that your family likes this recipe. Happy cooking and have a super holiday! Take Care, BAM

    These wings are to die for!!! That marinade made all the difference. I did add 1 tsp. of lemon pepper seasoning to my spices. After 1 hour in the oven, the wings were crispy, yet so tender on the inside. My boyfriend and I took them out of the oven, and ate them straight from the baking pan. Seriously, they didn’t even get served on a plate. I easily had consumed 15 wings. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe. And if your debating on making this recipe, Go For It! You will NOT be disappointed.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Dear Sherese thank you so much for your kind comment and I am so glad that you and your boyfriend like our Super Easy Baked Wings Dings. I like your addition of lemon pepper seasoning, I will have to try that one next time. These super easy baked wing dings are kind of addictive. I can never seem to make enough to satisfy my growing teenage boys. Heck 15 for them is like just a little taste tester… Thanks again for stopping by and wishing you a super week!
