Dry Rub Chicken Wings
Dry Rub Chicken Wings


  • 4 lbs wings

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

  • ½ tablespoon salt

  • ½ tablespoon ancho chili powder

  • ½ tablespoon smoked paprika

  • ½ tablespoon paprika

  • ½ tablespoon garlic powder

  • ½ tablespoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder (or more for spice preference)

  • ½ teaspoon dried mustard powder

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • ½ teaspoon oregano

  • ½ teaspoon thyme

  • *Optional: ½ teaspoon malt vinegar powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Top that with an oven-safe rack and spray it with nonstick spray. Set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine all of the spice ingredients (all ingredients minus the chicken and oil). In a large bowl, toss the wings in the oil. Add the rub to the wings and toss (or use your hands) to coat all of the wings. 

  3. Add the wings to the baking sheet, they can be close together but shouldn’t be touching. Bake for 45 minutes, turning them over halfway through. Remove from the oven, garnish with some chive or scallion if you want, and serve immediately - but be careful, they are hot! BON APPETIT!

  4. ** They are great with a ranch or blue cheese dip!
