What is Old Bay Seasoning

If you have never tried Old Bay Seasoning, I suggest you head out to the store and pick some up. It’s a blend of 14 different herbs and spices and it makes the perfect blend for chicken, meat and even seafood.

These wings would go great this summer alongside some of our great salads like the Creamy Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream and Mayo, the Old Fashioned Creamy Potato Salad or the Greek Style Pasta Salad.

Recipe Notes

  • Pat the wings dry – Don’t skip this step or the dry rub won’t stick easily.
  • Thaw chicken wings correctly – If using frozen wings from the freezer, make sure you have allow them to defrost properly before baking.
  • Bake in a hot oven – I baked these at 425 degrees f. This will ensure they bake properly and get crispy and nice and golden.

Substitutions

  • Chicken wings – If you aren’t a fan of chicken wings, you can use chicken tenders, chicken cutlets, chicken drumsticks, chicken thighs or even chicken breasts. Just keep in mind what cooking time will vary depending on what cut of chicken you use. Chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees f.
  • Old Bay Seasoning – I used a store bought Old Bay Seasoning for these wings. You can make your own seasoning blend if you prefer. Alternatively you can change the flavour all together by using a Moroccan Spice Blend, Homemade Mild Taco Seasoning or the Homemade Cajun Seasoning.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you get the dry rub to stick to the wings?

Make sure your wings are dry. Pat them dry with a paper towel before adding the seasoning. This will ensure the rub sticks to the wings.

How long do you leave the dry rub on before baking?

In my opinion, dry rubs get better with time. You can do this up to 24 hours before cooking. However, you can use the rub just before baking and the wings are still delicious.

Can I cook these wings using another method?

Yes, you can cook these on the barbecue, in a crock pot, a deep fryer or even an air fryer. If cooking in a crock pot, brown them in a skillet first to give them a golden colour.
