I should make more chicken wings than I do. My son can eat his weight daily in the little finger foods and they do fit nicely into my keto diet. It would be a great idea to just have these Easy Baked Dry Rub Chicken Wings ready to go at all times in the fridge. Maybe if I did he would lay off the cookies and ice cream and potato chips. Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking. The kid has literally grown an inch in the last 4 weeks. Pretty soon there won’t be any food left in the house at all.
When it comes to making chicken wings at home, I want them to be easy. I do love the deep fried and tossed in buffalo sauce classic, but I don’t enjoy the mess that it creates. Roasting wings in the oven is the easiest way to go and the amount that you can make at one time is only limited by the size of your oven. The trick to crispy all the way around wings, is to put them on a grate so that the hot oven air can circulate all the way around. A little bit of cornstarch helps, too. And even though they are tiny, chicken wings are a tough part of the bird so they require a much longer cook time than you would think, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t easy to make. You don’t have to use this dry rub recipe, you could use any seasoning blend you have lying around. Ones with a little bit of sugar will brown up the best. Make a big batch of these Easy Baked Dry Rub Chicken Wings for your next get together or just to have at the ready for snacking.

- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (if you have a convection oven, now is a great time to use it). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and then top with a grate.
- In a small bowl combine all ingredients through the cornstarch and mix until well combined. Add the chicken wings to a large bowl. Sprinkle over the dry rub and the olive oil and toss with your hands until everything is coated evenly in the spice mixture.
