I honestly thought that once summer was officially over we would be less busy. I don't know where this crazy idea came from, I just had it in my head that fall = more time. Turns out, its not true. At all. At least a good portion of our time has been enjoying the beautiful outdoors lately! Another thing we have been enjoying are these chicken wings (awesome segue, huh?). They are very quick (and cheap) to throw together, and are so delicious we have eaten them at least three times in the last month. Sweet and just a little spicy, these wings really hit the spot!
Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings (slightly adapted from Damn Delicious)
yields: 4 servings
2 LBS chicken wings
2 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Preheat the oven to 425F.
In a large ziplock bag, combine all of the ingredients and squish around really good until the chicken wings are completely covered in the seasonings.
Line a baking sheet with foil and place the chicken wings on top (do not skip the foil, it will make a seriously ridiculous mess if you skip it!)
Bake for 25 minutes, turning over halfway through.
Serve immediately with the dipping sauce on the side.
