  • 20 chicken wings, cut into drumettes and flats, or 40 pieces
  • 2 tbsp vegatable oil, or enough to coat wings
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp fine kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme


  • Combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Place wing pieces in a large bowl with vegatable oil, and mix to coat.
  • Sprinkle rub mix onto wings gradually, mixing to coat, until the wings are just nicely colored up, as pictured. (The amount of rub in this recipe will coat more than the 20 wings or 40 pieces, so don't use it all at once).
  • Place wings, not touching each other, on non stick sprayed rack placed on a foil lined cookie sheet. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes, until nicely browned.
