Hot Wings

Hello all,

I was recently reminded, that I have not made Hot Wing’s in a long time. So I decided that since my oldest is learning to cook she should give it a try.  She has already mastered my Oven Fried Chicken, so I knew she could handle making the Hot Wing’s. I am happy to say that she did a phenomenal job and the Hot Wing’s were delicious.

So let’s jump in and see how this tasty dish is made.

I use frozen Natural wingettes from Costco. In a large bowl I soak about 24 wingettes in cool water and ½ cup of apple cider vinegar.  The vinegar helps in pulling out and impurities.  I use vinegar when cooking chicken or turkey.  After the chicken has unthawed we are officially ready to begin.


Chicken Wingettes of course (I used 24)

1 TBS of the following spices

Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
No-Salt Seasoning (like Mrs. Dash or Trader Joe’s 21 Salute)

½ tsp Black Pepper

Grape Seed Oil (or oil of your choice)

1/4 Cup of Franks Hot sauce

1 TBS of butter


Pre-Heat the oven to 450°

Take a sheet pan and line it with parchment paper

Drain the chicken and pat dry with paper towel and put back into the bowl

Get a small bowl and pour all your spices into the bowl and stir to get everything evenly mixed together.


Your chicken should be dry in a large bowl.  Add all your spices from the bowl.  Now take your hands and massage the spices all over the wingettes.  Be sure that each wing is evenly coated with seasoning.

Next transfer the chicken onto the sheet pan lined with parchment paper.  Once you have all the chicken onto the pan drizzle with grape seed oil (or oil of your choice)

Place into your Pre-heated 450° oven for 45 minutes to and hour.

5 minutes before your wings are done, make your hot wing sauce. In a small pot on medium high heat add your hot sauce and butter. Once the mixture is warm and butter melted it’s done. This takes 5 minutes or less.

Once the wings are done and removed from the oven. Pour your sauce over the chicken and place back into the oven for 5 minutes longer. Once they are down allow the wingettes to cool and enjoy with your side of choice or as an appetizer.


Until Next Time,
