MVP Baked Chicken Wings | Indianapolis Food Blogger

Chicken Wings reign supreme. This is a fact. Please don’t debate me.
Hello, Hi. I’m Candace and Chicken Wings are my favorite food. No really. They are. Chicken wing connoisseur here. I’ve never met a wing I didn’t love. Well,  I’ve meat a few unseasoned ones, but that isn’t the purpose of this post. I’m writing to share my recipe for my favorite baked chicken wings. Yep, baked. Crispy and full of flavor, these are the wings I make for every function we have. As much as I love a fried chicken wing, I know I can’t indulge in those every day. Enter my oven. My high powered buddy. The ruler of the roost. MVP of my kitchen. Because of my oven, I can have crispy wings without the guilt. I call these my MVP Wings.

Why do I love these wings so much? Let me tell you. They’re  tried and true, and so good. Even the picky toddler takes a drum or two. Packed with the flavor of a great seasoning blend, I don’t need a fryer to make greatness happen. The best part of the recipe is that your oven will do all of the work. Another fun fact is this recipe is easy enough that you can make these for a weeknight will time to spare. Gearing up for the big game? Add these to your Super Bowl Party Menu, your guests will thank you! If you’re looking for a host of recipes for the big game, head here and here. There is something for everybody!
