Old Bay Chicken Wings

What’s a Super Bowl without wings? Here is the second recipe in our homage to the teams in the XLVII Super Bowl—chicken wings, tossed in a sauce of butter and Baltimore favorite Old Bay seasoning, baked and broiled, and then served with cocktail sauce. Hank wanted to call these “Raven Wings”, but I objected thinking that people might actually believe we are cooking and eating large black flying birds, which we are not. Yes, serving cocktail sauce with chicken wings is a little weird, but it’s good! Especially with the Old Bay.

Old Bay Chicken Wings Recipe

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

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 Melt the butter in a small pot and whisk in the Old Bay and lemon juice. Let it cool enough to feel lukewarm. Mix it again and toss the chicken wings in half the sauce. Arrange in one layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or Silpat and bake for 25 minutes.

3 Take the wings out of the oven and switch it to broil. Set a rack about 6 inches under the broiler. Flip the wings and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until they are nicely browned.

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

    You could have called them “Charm City Wings.”

    I made a version of these for our superbowl party today and they disappeared faster then I could take them off the baking sheets. Thanks for the inspiration!
