Crispy Dry Rub Chicken Wings



2 lbs chicken wings, split at joints, tips removed

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons paprika

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for spiciness)

Optional: additional seasoning like smoked paprika, chili powder, or cumin for extra flavor


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, toss the chicken wings with olive oil until evenly coated.


In a separate bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Sprinkle the dry rub mixture over the chicken wings, making sure to coat them evenly. You can adjust the amount of seasoning according to your taste preferences.

Arrange the seasoned chicken wings on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, leaving some space between each wing.

Bake the wings in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking, until they are crispy and golden brown.

Once cooked through, remove the wings from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

Serve the crispy dry rub chicken wings with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, or barbecue sauce.

Enjoy your delicious homemade chicken wings!
