So, I was working on a recipe for chicken wings when not long after I started, my husband basically took over. Just for the record my husband CAN cook, and I love it when he does – it just doesn’t happen all that often anymore! So I did not argue and said, “Yes, I’d love for you to take a shot at developing this baked chicken wings recipe” (i.e. make dinner tonight – wink wink).
Recipe for The Best Oven Baked Chicken Wings
And I must say they turned out to be the best oven baked chicken wings I’ve had and definitely rival the smoked wings we recently fell in love with at one of our favorite Charlotte restaurants, Rooster’s.
How to Get the Taste of Smoking Chicken Wings
Baking this knock-off version at home by emulating the flavor of their wood burning fire with smoked salt makes our house smell almost as good as their amazing restaurant, and it only takes 45 minutes to bake (instead of hours to smoke…not to mention you don’t have to tend a fire!). So, just in time for the Super Bowl – enjoy!
What to Serve With These Homemade Wings
Chicken wings make for an awesome family meal that just about everyone loves! Here’s a few ideas for side dishes you can add to make it a complete, whole food meal to satisfy even the hungriest diners. Try some slow cooker baked beans, oven baked cheese fries for some extra crunch, and Mexican street corn salad to bring it all together!
