Baked Garlic and Onion Wings

If you want to make your belly happy and as a bonus make your house smell amazing, make yourself a batch of these baked garlic and onion wings. Lots of garlic. Lots of onion. Heck, I’m not always a fan of baked wings but these made a believer out of me. They’re very flavorful. They’re cooked perfectly. Nice and tasty, I’d make these again.

Baked Garlic and Onion Wings

Leave ’em alone

I do have one suggestion when you make your baked garlic and onion wings. Don’t flip them while they are baking. Just let them be. You turn them and they’ll lose a bit of that flavor. Not much, not enough to really notice, but you’ll see it. Heck, you can see it my picture. Believe me, they were still great, but if I learned something from a recipe, I’ll pass it along!

Crispy Baked Honey BBQ Wings

These crispy baked honey BBQ wings made a believer of baked wings out of me. I rarely make wings in the oven. Or rather, I used to rarely make wings in the oven. These wings were delicious. They were cooked just right. The skin had the perfect bite. Man, there’s just nothing worse than rubbery wing skin. Not a worry here, that’s for sure. And the sauce? Oh me, what a great combination of sweetness, smokiness and just a bit of heat.

Crispy Baked Honey BBQ Wings

A Real Crowd Pleaser

This recipe for crispy baked honey BBQ wings scales really easily. So if you need to make a bunch of wings for a bunch of people, all you gotta do is double it or triple it or more. The sauce is also great on the sauce for dipping the cooked wings, so make extra. It’s really good stuff, and people are likely to want more of it. I did.

I used Sweet Baby Ray’s for the barbecue sauce in the sauce mix, but you can use your favorite. Since you’re adding honey and a little heat, I’d opt for a more traditional BBQ sauce versus a sweet heat version.

Instructions

For the wings

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with non-stick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, garlic powder, chili powder and black pepper.
  • Add the wings to the bowl (working in batches if needed) and toss to coat well. Transfer the wings to the baking sheet. Do not overlap the wings or let them touch.
  • Spray the tops of the wings with a little non-stick spray. This is optional but I think it gets the wings a bit more crispy.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the wings and bake another 20 minutes.
  • Brush the tops of the wings with half of the wing sauce. Bake another 5 minutes.
  • Flip the wings and brush with the remaining sauce. Bake another 5 minutes.
  • Optional: If you want a little more color to your wings, place under the boiler for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them, though. You do not want to burn the sauce.

For the sauce

  • Meanwhile, combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat to keep warm until the wings are done, stirring often.

Baked Spicy Buffalo Ranch Wings

The problem with most baked Buffalo-style wings is that the flavor is only skin-deep. The wings are cooked then tossed in a sauce then served. Problem is, that sauce never gets a chance to flavor the meat. You take a bite. Yummy. Take another. Sadness. Nada. Nothing. The sauce is gone and so is the flavor. These baked spicy Buffalo Ranch wings are not those wings. These wings are marinated in Buffalo sauce. That sauce gets ‘down in there’, flavoring the wings all the way through. The result is bite after bite of Buffalo wing goodness.

The Easy Way To Please A Crowd

You can easily scale this recipe for baked spicy Buffalo Ranch wings to feed a bigger crowd. For those that want even more heat, use a hotter hot sauce. Of course you can use a tamer sauce for those that don’t like that spicy kick.

These wings have a skin that is ‘bite through clean’. No yucky chewy chicken skin here. They aren’t going to be crunchy, but you can give them a little bit of a crunch and color by placing them under the broiler just before serving them. Just don’t leave them under that high heat for long.

Baked Taco Wings

Yowsa. I could’ve eaten an obscene amount of these baked taco wings. I really wasn’t expecting them to be so great. Boy o boy, I could not get enough of them. Great taco flavor with a lightly crunchy coating. And easy? It’s hard to get any easier to make. And on the side, a just-as-easy Ranch and chile pepper dipping sauce. I liked the sauce to much that I went on to make more and used it as a salad dressing!

Baked Taco Wings

A Great Party Appetizer

The coating on these baked taco wings is pretty delicate, so be careful when flipping them. Just take a little extra time and they’ll be fantastic. I’m a big fan of taco seasoning, so I might admit to adding a bit extra for a little more flavor. These wings would be excellent as an appetizer at a party. The flavor is definitely different than traditional Buffalo wings. The dipping sauce has a nice chile pepper flavor to it, combined with a more traditional Ranch dressing.

Baked Coconut Mango Wings

I’m gonna be straight-up. I thought these baked coconut mango wings were delicious. I loved them. I’m not usually a big baked wings fan, but they were packed with island-inspired flavor with golden-brown lightly crunchy skin and moist, tender meat. It was the dipping sauce that threw me. Maybe it’s because 99% of the time I dip my wings in blue cheese or ranch salad dressing. I’m not sure, but I wasn’t a fan. I’d make these wings again, but I’d use the sauce as additional marinade instead. You might feel differently, but it’s my job to be up-front and honest.

Baked Coconut Mango Wings

Delicious… and Pretty

The gorgeous color on these baked coconut mango wings comes from the annatto in the Sazon seasoning. It’s the same stuff that’s used to color other foods, like making cheddar cheese orange. Yeah, it’s really white. Go figure. Why do orange-ish foods taste better? I’m not sure, but they do. And they look better too.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings

It’s not like I hadn’t eaten in weeks. So only one thing can explain how quickly these oven baked garlic Parmesan wings disappeared. There were fantastic! I’d been on an air and deep fryer wing binge for a while. Time to change things up and go baked! And how glad am I that I did! Lightly crunchy chicken wings, with the perfect bite-thru skin and oh, flavor! So much flavor! Garlic, Parmesan and just the slightest bit of spiciness.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings

Super Tasty with the Right Crunch

I used a wire baking rack when I made these baked garlic Parmesan wings, but you can cook them directly on foil or parchment paper. And in fact, I think you’ll find cleanup to be a lot easier if you skip the rack. And make sure you shake off the excess butter. If the chicken wing skin gets super oily (from the butter) it won’t crisp as well. Not a big deal, but something you might want to keep in mind!

If you’re into ‘wet’ wings, try Kosmos Q Garlic Parmesan wing sauce.

  • Preheat your oven to 450 F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. You can also use a wire rack with foil underneath.

  • Remove the wings from the oven. Working one at a time, using tongs, grab a wing and dunk it into the butter mixture. Flip to coat it well then shake off any excess. Transfer to the cheese mixture and roll to coat. Shake off the excess and return the wing to the baking sheet.

Crispy Convection Oven Wings

Most of the time I make wings either on a charcoal grill using the Vortex insert, on my Char-Broil Big Easy, in an air fryer, or I deep fry them. But sometimes none of those options are available. That’s when I ‘fire up’ my convection oven. And you know, the wings are actually pretty darned good! Nothing will ever match deep frying wings in oil, but this is close enough when a deep fryer isn’t available. These crispy convection oven wings satisfy my wing craving just fine, thank you!

Crispy Convection Oven Wings

No Sad Wings!

When your crispy convection oven wings are done, don’t make them sad by adding cold wing sauce right out of the fridge! That cold sauce will kill some of that crispiness that you had, and it’ll make your wings mighty darned cold! So if you’re using leftover, refrigerated sauce, warm it up while the wings are cooking. Then sauce those little beauties right out of the oven!
