Old Bay Chicken Wings

What’s a Super Bowl without wings? In this chicken wing recipe we are seasoning the wings with Old Bay, a favorite spice blend for crab which works just as well with chicken.

The wings are tossed with in a sauce make with Old Bay, butter, and lemon juice, then baked, broiled, and served with cocktail sauce.

Yes, serving cocktail sauce with chicken wings is a little weird, but it’s good! Especially with the Old Bay.

  • Prep: 15 minutes
  • Cook: 30 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chicken wings, separated tips from drummettes
  • 8 Tbsp (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp Old Bay seasoning, plus more for dusting
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Cocktail sauce for dipping

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 425°F. Allow the wings to come to room temperature (or else the sauce will be more difficult to spread on them). Pat the chicken wings dry.

2 Make Old Bay sauce: Melt the butter in a small pot and whisk in the Old Bay and lemon juice. Let it cool enough to feel lukewarm.

3 Mix the sauce again and toss the chicken wings in half the sauce.

4 Bake: Arrange the wings in one layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, aluminum foil, or Silpat and bake at 425°F for 25 minutes.

5 Broil: Take the wings out of the oven and turn on the broiler. Set a rack about 6 inches under the broiler. Turn the wings over on the baking sheet and put under the broiler for 3-4 minutes, or until they are nicely browned.

6 To serve, toss in the remaining sauce and set on a plate. Dust with more Old Bay and serve with your favorite cocktail sauce.
