Simple Savory Chicken Wings


Hey guys,

I’m excited to be sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes with you guys. It’s so simple and so perfect for when you’re craving something fast-foody but are trying to go the healthy route.

This wing recipe is my go-to on days when I want something tasty and comforting but I don’t want to put in too much energy. What I love about wings is that, unlike other cuts of chicken, they are super flavorful without marination. I highly recommend keeping some in the freezer. On the day when you wake up with wings on the brain, throw them in the fridge to thaw. Come home from a hard day of work (or play), season them, and bake. No complicated marinade necessary.

The most “difficult” part of this recipe is the porcini mushroom blend. I am grateful that I live close to a local spice shop (The Spice Station Silverlake) that carries an amazing blend. Before I discovered their blend, however, I used to make my own using the Magic Mushroom Powder recipe from Nom Nom Paleo. I highly recommend trying this spice blend whether you’re using it for wings or for something else. 

I love eating these wings as is but this seasoning blend also works great as a base blend for sauced wings. Just season them and cook them as directed and then cover them in your sauce of choice. Barbeque wings and this new recipe that I tried last week with shishitos (soon to be published on the blog) are some of the ways that I choose to sauce up my wings.
