Baked Chicken Wings
Prep 20 minutes Cook 45 minutes Makes Servings 6
- 3 pounds chicken wings about 3 dozen wings total
- 3 tablespoon pure maple syrup or honey
- Memphis Spice Blend
Place the cooling rack on top of a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and set aside. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Pour the maple syrup into a large mixing bowl. Add the wings and mix with your hands to evenly coat the wings. (Note: If your wings are fairly wet, pat dry with a paper towel first, otherwise don’t waste your time.) Arrange the coated chicken wings on top of the rack.
Evenly spread about half of the Memphis Style spice mixture on top of the wings. With your other “wet” hand, press the spice rub into the wings and then flip them over (we want the thick-skinned side up during baking for extra crispiness). Evenly spread the remaining spice mixture on top with your dry hand.
Bake for 45 minutes on the middle oven rack. Serve warm and enjoy!
