The men in my life are total fans of hot wings. I seriously think that between the two of them, they could eat a dozen a piece and call it a meal.
While I love the many flavors of hot wings, I’m not a fan of having to work for my food. Instead, I prefer boneless wings, which my son refers to as fancy chicken nuggets. My kid has a point.
When I made sweet and sour chicken wings, they fell in love with them. Yesterday I made these cajun hot wings and the reaction was pretty much the same – love at first bite.
First, you want to start with making my homemade cajun seasoning recipe, because it’s better than store-bought.
After you rinse, drain and dry your wings, I used wings with drums, drizzle them with enough olive oil to coat.
Make sure you coat them well since this is what causes the seasoning to stick to the hot wings.
Doesn’t this cajun seasoning look fantastic?
Heap a bunch of it on your wings and toss. Add less for milder wings and more for hotter wings.
Toss that up in the bowl so that the wings are nice and covered. A sealed bag works nicely, too.
Place them in a single layer on a baking pan. I love my stoneware pan, you can bake anything on it and it won’t retain oils, smells or flavors.
It’s perfect for all your meats and baked goods. I even use it for homemade pizza!
You’ll want to oil it up a bit so that the chicken doesn’t stick.
I baked these at a high heat – 450º – and they were cooked to perfection in just 30 minutes. I love all that crispy, crusty goodness that forms on the skin! These go perfectly with a side of french fries or a healthy green salad.
Personally, I prefer fries, but a girl’s got to watch her figure.
