Dry Rub Hot Wings

Smoky and spicy dry rub hot wings that will impress a crowd - who needs sauce?!

Are these any less messy than sauced wings? No. Are they just as good without sauce? YES! This is another food that I really didn't like at all up until the last few years. I really can't explain why I didn't like wings. I grew up eating chicken drumsticks and they are just slightly bigger than these little ones. I think I just didn't care for them because of the flavors. I have made and also eaten some banging wings recently. My sister-in-law makes some mean wings and I think hers are my absolute favorite. It just seems like homemade is better. Every time I've thought I didn't like a food was because it was something that wasn't homemade. The dry rub on these wings is great and I highly recommend making some of these dry rub wings next time you're entertaining a crowd. They won't last long!

What you need:
  • 2 lb chicken wings (mix of wings and drumettes)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika 
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. cayenne
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  1. Pat wings dry with a paper towel. Then place in a bowl and rub with olive oil as evenly as possible.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all seasonings.
  3. Sprinkle half of the mix on top of the wings and rub in.
  4. Flip wings and sprinkle with other half and rub in.
  5. Place a wire rack onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Put wings on rack
  6. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Flip and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Turn the broiler on LOW and cook for another 10 minutes.
Recipe from Low Carb Yum

The last time I posted a wings recipe was 2 years ago and they were Air Fryer Hot Wings - you can 100% adapt them to cook in another way if you don't have an air fryer. One of my favorite types of wings is lemon pepper so I know I will find another keeper recipe in these Lemon Pepper Wings from Carlsbad Cravings.
