We have always been a fan of the Costco Spicy Chicken wings. After some trial and error with fresh chicken wings, spices and sauces, this recipe is a keeper. We will not be buying frozen ones anymore!
You can always mix and match the dry rub and sauce to make a variation each time you want something new.
- 2lb/1 kg chicken wings.
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- Cooking spray
For the dry rub:
- 1/2 Tbsp. pepper powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp. paprika - for color
- 1/2 tsp cayenne or chili powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp. chili garlic paste
- 1 Tbsp. sriracha sauce
- 1 Tbsp. vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- Bring the wings to a little below room temperature. Pat them dry.
- Combine the dry rub ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.
- Place the chicken wings in a large bowl. Add half the dry rub and massage it into the wings.
- Drizzle some oil over it and add the remaining rub, massage it all into the wings. Set aside.
- Prep a baking sheet with aluminum foil and a wire rack. I improvised with a regular sheet pan and cooking spray. The rack allows the wings to cook evenly all around.
- Bake the wings on 400 F for 25 minutes on the middle rack.
- Flip the wings over and bake for another 25 minutes.
- In the meantime, prep the spicy sauce. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
- Remove the wings, brush them with spicy sauce on both sides and set it in the oven on broil high for 2-3 minutes. Place it in the top rack. Ovens are different, so watch not to burn it.
- Arrange the wings on a serving platter and give them a generous coating of the remaining sauce.
- Enjoy the spicy, finger-licking wings hot!
