We like to find easy to do, simple to make, quick to buy recipes for the busy New Yorker. This easy baked chicken wing recipe only takes 10 minutes of your hands-on time. That’s pretty quick! All of the ingredients are available at Morton Williams.
This recipe curtesy of Street Smart calls for a few savory dried spices emphasizing a smoky cumin flavor. Rubbing the spices on the wings and brushing with melted butter is basically all you need to do. Your oven will finish off the cooking job nicely! Not a big fan of cumin? Substitute with thyme or rosemary. They’ll still be fantastic.
One thing to note is that you want to make sure the chicken wings are arranged in a single layer prior to baking. This is an important step for making the skin crisp. Otherwise, your wings would be steamed instead of baked, just like microwaved ones (we don’t want that).
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, the chicken wings will turn out extremely tender inside with a savory crispy skin that locks in all the flavor. Serve these healthy baked chicken wings with any greens such Green Beans! You now have a nutrition-balanced hearty homemade dinner!
