Easy Ingredients, Easy Wings

These Old Bay wings are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. And the biggest bonus is that you don’t need much to make them! Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb Chicken wings, raw
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 4 tbsp Old Bay
  • 1 gallon size Ziploc bag
  • cooking spray
  • baking sheet

Yup, that’s really all you need! Of course, if you want an easy, mess-free clean up like I usually do, then you’ll want to grab some aluminum foil, too. Once you’ve gathered all of your ingredients and materials then it’s time to get cooking.

Make Those Old Bay Wings

Making the Old Bay wings is just as easy as gathering the materials. First, you’ll want to start by putting the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, water and Old Bay in the gallon sized Ziploc bag. Next, you’ll need to remove your wings from the packaging and make sure that they’ve been cleaned. Once you know they’re clean, put them in the bag with the vinegar/oil/water mixture.

Prepping the Old Bay wings

Once the wings are in the bag, make sure it is sealed really well. Give the bag a few shakes. You can even take it a step further and massage the marinade into the chicken. You want to make sure that every wing is covered in the marinade. Once you’ve done this, put the wings in the fridge for 2.5 hours.

Get to Cooking

After the wings have sat and marinated for a couple of hours, remove the from the fridge. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Before you take your wings out of the bag, make sure that you have your baking sheet out and ready. Spray the baking sheet with cooking spray prior to putting the wings on it. Next, take the wings out of the bag and line the baking sheet with them, skin side up. Dust them with some extra Old Bay if you’d like. Throw the bag and excess marinade away.

Once the oven is ready, put them in the oven for ten minutes. Chicken wings are small, so it won’t take them long to cook. Once the ten minutes is up, switch your oven over to broil. Broil for no more than 5 minutes. You’ll want to keep an eye on them so that they don’t over cook. You want your chicken skin to be golden and crispy.

Get to Eatin’

Once those Old Bay wings come out of the oven, it’s time to get to eatin’! Serve them warm with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ranch or bleu cheese. If you want them a little spicier, mix some Old Bay Hot Sauce in with your ranch for a great zesty dipping sauce. Take a bite and get back to rooting for your team!
