A homemade blend of Cajun spices coats these oven baked chicken wings. A little bit smoky, little bit sweet, and a little bit of heat!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a roasting rack on top.
  3. Cover the roasting rack with another sheet of aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Use a fork to poke holes throughout the surface of the foil.
  4. Rinse the chicken wings under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  5. Place the chicken wings in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag. Drizzle the olive oil into the bag. Sprinkle in the salt.
  6. Seal the bag and shake to coat the chicken wings evenly with oil and salt.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the spices, sugar, and pepper.
  8. Sprinkle the spice mixture into the Ziploc bag.
  9. Seal the bag and shake until the chicken wings are evenly coated in the cajun spice rub.
  10. Arrange the chicken wings onto the foil-covered roasting rack.
  11. Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven.
  12. Bake the chicken wings for 45-50 minutes, until browned and crispy.
  13. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  14. Allow the chicken wings to cool on the roasting rack for 3-4 minutes.
  15. Transfer the chicken wings to a plate and serve.
