Baked chicken wings
Baked chicken wings with a chipotle dry rub

Superbowl Sunday is close, and what goes hand in hand with the big game?  You guessed it chicken wings!!!

Besides Thanksgiving, Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest eating day of the year, and chicken wings are the most popular dish.  In fact, over 1.23 billion wings will be sold this year.

Jim and I both love traditional chicken wings, however, we are also know that deep fried foods are one of the “not so good” things you can eat.  So our solution – Baked Chicken Wings!  And by substituting a dry rub for the traditional hot sauce, we will also save some calories without sacrificing the flavor or the heat.   Here’s to the big game, and the ability to enjoy it with a little less ‘post game guilt’!

Chipotle Dry Rub, Baked Chicken Wings

Ingredients:

2 pounds of Chicken Wings – tips removed
2 Tablespoons Ground Chipotle Pepper (or 2-3 dried chipotle peppers:  click here-How to Make Your Own Chipotle Peppers)
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper 2 teaspoons olive oil

Instructions:

1. Remove tips from chicken wings (and save for stock later).  Thoroughly dry the chicken wings with paper towels to remove any excess liquid and let rest.

2. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.  Mix well.

3. Place chicken wings in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and rub evenly into chicken wings.

Wings placed on a baking rack over a cookie sheet to allow for a crisper texture.

4. Sprinkle half of the dry rub on top of the chicken wings.  Rub it in with your hands.  Flip wings and sprinkle the remaining rub onto the wings.  Rub evenly.

5. Place a baker’s rack over the top of a cookie sheet.  Line the rack with the wings.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, flip, and bake for another 10 minutes, then turn the broiler on for an additional 10 minutes to make crispy.   Make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

7. Remove from oven, let cool and serve.  Great if served with celery and ranch/blue cheese dressing.

    yum! I love making wings at home. I’ve grown ghost chili peppers this year and wow are they hot! I’m going to dry them and make ground peppers out of them. My question is your recipe calls for 2 tbsp of ground chipolte peppers. How much do you think I should use with the ghost peppers? Not sure how much hotter they are than the chipolte? Thanks!!

      wow – ghost peppers are hot!!!! I think they are about 100 x’s hotter that chipotle on the heat scale – so i would use them sparingly 🙂
