Spicy Herb and Garlic Wings

I’m not sure what happened. Something came over me when I was making the sauce for these spicy herb and garlic wings. The aroma was crazy good. My mouth was watering. I was so anxious to try it on wings. Though I admit to having quite a few ‘samples’ of the sauce as the wings cooked…. This stuff is great. Savory, herby, garlicky with just the perfect amount of heat.

Spicy Herb and Garlic Wings

There’s absolutely nothing I’d change about these spicy herb and garlic wings. I really liked them. If you aren’t a fan of heat, you can definitely leave out the cayenne. But I liked it. It’s not overpowering by any stretch. And of course you can add more, or use less.

You’ll enjoy these wings as much as I did.

Baked Salsa Verde Wings

Oh, yum! Juicy, flavorful wings! I had no idea how great of a marinade salsa verde could be. It really added a fantastic flavor to these wings. They were so tender, yet still had a nicely crunchy skin. Served with citrus salsa verde cream sauce for dipping, I really enjoyed these wings!

Baked Salsa Verde Wings

If you have any juices on the baking dish as the wings cook, brush it back onto the wings for extra flavor. I found it important to turn the wings often to get a nice even cook and also crunchy skin. I did not have to put the wings under the broiler to crunch them up, these baked salsa verde wings didn’t need it!

Buffalo Wild Wings Desert Heat Dry Wings

The desert heat wing seasoning from Buffalo Wild Wings makes for some of the best dry wings you’ve ever had. Sure, you can use it as a seasoning on wet wings too. I’m such a fan of dry wings that that’s how I prefer it. Time and time again. A little (ok, a good bit of) spiciness combines with a wonderful smokiness that makes these wings fantastic.

Buffalo Wild Wings Desert Heat Dry Wings

I season my wings with Buffalo Wild Wings desert heat wing seasoning before I cook them and after they’re done. If I’m deep frying the wings I’ll mix the seasoning in with the flour mixture first. I am pretty heavy-handed with the seasoning before and after the wings are cooked. I really like this stuff.
