Chicken Wings:

  • 2 ½ pounds chicken wings

  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Yogurt Dip:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

  • ½ teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, or more to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with nonstick aluminum foil.

  2. Place chicken wings into a large bowl, drizzle with oil, and toss until thoroughly coated.

  3. Stir paprika, cumin, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and black pepper together in a small bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture over wings and toss to coat.

  4. Arrange wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them apart so they aren't touching.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 40 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  6. Meanwhile, make the yogurt dip: Stir yogurt, lemon juice, honey, mint, cilantro, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Taste dip and season with additional salt and pepper as desired.

  7. Remove wings from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Serve with yogurt dip.
