Juicy, crispy, spicy & EASY! These wings will be a hit at any party or as an appetizer for dinner... or have them as a light snack. The best part? They're baked, not fried! 

Time: 1.5 hours total



  • 1 pack Purdue wingettes
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper  
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder  
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder 
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder  
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme  
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili (finely chopped)  


  1. Bring 3 cups of water to boil in a large pot. 
  2. Add garlic powder & onion powder - stir & add wings. 
  3. Boil for about 15 - 20 mins, not completely cooked through.  
  4. Preheat the oven to 375.  
  5. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Then, put a wire rack on top of it. Spray the wire rack with cooking spray. 
  6. Strain the chicken wings & use tongs to place them evenly on the wire rack.  
  7. Bake on 375 for 40-45 mins or until golden brown, cooked through. 
  8. Use a small bowl to mix all of the remaining spices together.  
  9. Take the wings out of the oven & dip each of them in the spice rub one by one. You want to roll them around so they're coated evenly. 
  10. Serve alone or with your favorite dip!
