Sweet And Sticky Chicken Wings
These wings are so tender and juicy and the brown sugar glaze gives a nice sweetness that compliments the flavor of the rest of the spices.
- 2.5 - 3 lbs split chicken wings
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 Tablespoon paprika
- 1.5 Tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried crushed pepper flakes optional***
Place the chicken wings in a large bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. Pour mixture over the chicken and coat the wings evenly. Make sure every single part of the meat is well coated.
Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a rimmed baking pan (I used a 12x18 cookie sheet) with parchment paper. Spread the chicken wings evenly on the prepared pan. When the oven is up to temperature, bake (middle rack) for 20 minutes then flip over to cook the other side for another 7-10 minutes or until chicken wings are beautifully glazed and shiny.
*You can use other parts of the chicken like thighs or drumsticks but make sure to increase the cooking time
**Aluminum foil can be used instead of parchment paper but spray it first with cooking spray before laying the chicken wings on it to prevent sticking.
***add some dried hot pepper flakes to the spices if you want it spicy
