Double Threat Chicken Wings
Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour
Makes about 40 wings
Universal for both
- 4 pounds bone-in chicken wings
- 1 cup course ground prepared mustard
- 0.75 cups extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 0.25 teaspoons ground cayenne pepper
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 cups seasoned Panko breadcrumbs
- Ranch dressing
- Blue cheese dressing
- Carrot sticks
- Celery sticks
Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Next, cut the wings with kitchen shears into the drum and the wing portion. Place half of the wings in one bowl, and the other half in another.
In a medium bowl, stir mustard, olive oil and spices together. Pour half of the mixture in one of the wing bowls and coat well. This bowl is your breadcrumb wings. Pour breadcrumbs onto a flat pie plate. Roll each wing in the crumbs to coat well. Then place them on a baking sheet.
Add the chile wing spices to the remaining mustard mixture. Stir well. Coat the wings from the other bowl. These are your chili wings. Once coated, place them on the baking sheet with the other wings.
Bake the wings for about 45 minutes until browned. Serve with ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, carrots and celery.
