Hello, Super Bowl Sunday! Sadly, the Carolina Panthers are done for the season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have friends and family over to watch the big game. There are a few foods that always remind me of football season and football parties and these baked wings are one of them.
My dad was baking wings before baking wings was cool. I didn’t even know that chicken wings were fried until I went to college. True story.
These chicken wings have all of the crunchy, crispy flavor you love about chicken wings, but none of the oil. These wings are a house favorite around here and we definitely don’t just enjoy them during football season. They make a regular appearance for dinner, too.
If your kids don’t love spicy buffalo wings, just leave off the buffalo sauce and serve them crispy right out of the oven. My twins are gluten-free so I make these crispy wings using gluten-free breadcrumbs from Ian’s, but you can use whatever breadcrumbs you have on hand.
I usually make about 4 to 5 pounds of chicken wings to feed my family – that works out to about two trays of wings – I lay my wings out on cookie sheets lined with foil for baking. (The foil also helps with easy clean-up!)
I like to keep one tray plain and the other tray tossed with buffalo sauce so everyone can be satisfied. Add some bleu cheese and celery sticks and you’ve got yourself an awesome football party snack!
