Old Bay Spiced Chicken Wings
With the holidays here along with football, there is probably no shortage of chicken wings being consumed this time of year.
I love chicken wings, hot wings or wings flavored with delicious spices, they are one of my favorite things. Especially if they are crispy on the outside and seasoned with a great flavor.
These Old Bay wings were a big ol’ hit when I first made them. Hubby was totally impressed ( hard to do after 25 years of cooking for him). And the kiddos loved the seasoned wings too. Old Bay reminds us all of summer crab feasts, steamed shrimp and enjoying the summer weather.
I’m a Baltimore girl, where Old Bay is from the Baltimore McCormick Spice company. We couldn’t go a summer without our delicious Old Bay Seasoning and these Old Bay Spiced Chicken Wings are a delicious substitute during the winter months.
One of the best things about these wings is that they are marinated in Apple Cider Vinegar. The vinegar makes the meat tender and succulent without over powering the taste of the seasonings. And if you are a steamed seafood lover, you are probably used to using some vinegar in your steam liquid for flavor. Eating these wings might almost be ( almost I said) just like sitting down at the picnic table, covered in newspaper, a beverage of choice, and a mound of crabs, corn and maybe some hush puppies. Brings me back to summer when I was a kid,sitting with he adults at the table until us kids got bored and went to play.
I even made a delicately spicy seafood sauce to dip your chicken pieces in.
First, gather your chicken wings and put them into a ziploc baggie. I made 24 wings.
Into the baggie, add 1/2 cup each of apple cider vinegar and 3 tablespoons of Old Bay Seasoning. Place into a bowl ( in case of leaks) and leave in fridge over night.
When you are ready, preheat your oven to broil on HIGH. Then put the wings on a rack. I cover my sheet pan with foil for easier clean up.
Sprinkle the wings with Old Bay Seasoning, add a lot or a little, for your taste. Mine were both sprinkled a little and a lot when I got happy with the seasoning, and we loved them all.
Broil on High until one side is crispy and browned. Turn each wing over and broil until that side is brown and crispy.
For the easy cocktail sauce dip.
1/3 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
a splash of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons horseradish.
Stir together and serve as a dip for these Old Bay Chicken Wings
