I shared a picture of this prepped pan of chicken wings on my IG and FB fan page earlier this afternoon and promised to share the recipe to everyone who liked the pic. So here we go.
Step 1 – Clean your raw chicken wings in water and vinegar in a large bowl and then drain.
Step 2 – Season your chicken wings. Sorry loves, but I don’t measure seasoning, I cook like my mom, I just open the bottle and shake until it feels right. I used Adobo with pepper (no MSG), Olde Cape Cod Teriyaki Marinade (use any brand teriyaki marinade you can find), and red pepper flakes–I put this ish on everything! Mix up the chicken until its evenly coated with your seasonings. I place a plastic bag over the top of my bowl and then shake my bowl up and down vigorously.
Step 3 – Pour the chicken into a baking dish. Set the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 45 minutes on the top rack
Step 4 – Take the chicken out of the oven. At this point the wings are done, but we are going to intensify the flavor by broiling them. This will also add a beautiful browning to the wings.
Step 5 – Set your oven to the broiler setting. If you have an option of high and low, select high. Broil for about 7 minutes or until you smell the chicken burning, whichever comes first. In this pic above, the chicken has been broiled on one side only. Remove the chicken from the oven and Using a chicken baster, baste the chicken with the juices in the pan. I like to tilt my pan to one side and allow the broth to collect in one side of the dish and suck up the juice from that side.
Step 6 – Flip each chicken wing over to the side that has not been basted. Return into the oven on the broil setting and broil for about 7 minutes or until you smell the chicken burning, whichever comes first. Remove the chicken from the oven and once again baste this side of the chicken.

Side Option Ideas: I will eat these wings with a cup of brown rice and a cup of california blend veggies. You could also eat this with a baked potato and some steamed broccoli. Try it with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The options are endless.
