My Dad can eat these delicious baked wings 7 days a week. They are his very favorite part of the chicken. They are healthy, and easy to prepare. I brine them first, so they are plump, tender, and luscious, and bake them with just a hint of heat from chili powder. I hope you will Enjoy them, too.

How to Make BONNIE'S WINGS AND DRUMS-- TWO RECIPES!

Step-by-Step

  1. COOK'S TIP: This recipe is actually 2 recipes in 1. If you omit the McCormick seasoning, and increase the chili powder by 1 to 2 tablespoons, you have delicious buffalo-style wings. Serve with blue cheese dressing and carrot and celery sticks. Or make them with the McCormick seasoning and serve with mashed potatoes and a salad. You can also serve BOTH recipes on one platter for a variety for everyone. Two great dinners in one recipe!
  2. BRINE THE WINGS OR DRUMSTICKS:
    Brine:
    Take a one gallon pot of cold water, add 1/2 cup of kosher salt, stir until the salt has disolved. (Do not use iodized salt.) Submerge the chicken pieces in the brine water. Refrigerate. Brine for no more than 2 hours, then remove the chicken pieces, rinse them and put them in the refrigerator until it is time to cook the chicken. Discard the brine.
  3. MIX THE INGREDIENTS IN A BAG:
    Add chili powder, garlic powder, and olive oil to the bag, knead the bag gently to mix.
  4. COAT THE CHICKEN:
    Add the brined chicken, pat dry, a few pieces at a time to the bag, kneading until coated, gradually adding all the chicken, and with the air out of the ziplock bag, you should be able to knead and coat the chicken thoroughly.
  5. PREHEAT THE OVEN:
    pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet (with a lip) with tin foil for easy clean-up. Spray with Pam.
  6. BAKING THE CHICKEN:
    Place the coated wings (and drumsticks if you are having them) on the cookie sheet skin side down. Salt and pepper the wings, and sprinkle McCormick chicken season liberally over the wings. Bake 1 hour in the oven, TURNING the chicken after 35 minutes, or until brown on the underside. Once you have turned the chicken, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and the McCormick chicken seasoning. Finish baking 30 to 40 more minutes until done and nice and brown.
