Baked Spicy Hot Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing

  • 12 organic or pastured chicken wings
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 2-3 tsp. cumin
  • 1 & 1/4  tsp. sea salt
  • 3 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (or more if you like them really spicy!)
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375°

Cut off wing tips and save for stock. Break down the chicken wings at the joint, separating the small drum from the wing. You should get 24 pieces in total.

Combine olive oil, paprika, cumin, sea salt, chili powder, cayenne pepper and black pepper.

Rub chicken pieces with spicy sauce and marinate 20-25 minutes.

Place wings into 9×12 baking pan and roast 25 minutes. Turn the wings and roast an additional 20 minutes.
