Father-son teamwork over the summer of 2012 produced our favorite wing recipe after many fun weeks. The wings are baked to a crispy perfection with just the right amount heat and maintain a robust flavor that will make this a recipe a favorite. Serve with sliced carrots and celery for cool crunching and blue cheese or ranch dressing for those who need it.

  • Mix flour, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl.

  • Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. Dip in the flour mixture until thoroughly coated. Transfer floured wings to the baking sheet; spray lightly with cooking spray.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, without turning, until browned, about 48 minutes. Preheat the oven's broiler. Broil wings until crisp and browned, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine hot wings and hot sauce in a large bowl; toss until evenly coated.

Cook's Notes:

We use Defcon 2 sauce, which you can order online.

If frozen, thaw chicken wings in the refrigerator, in a large bowl covered with plastic wrap, 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
