New Orleans-Style Blackened Chicken Wings

After picking up a blackened seasoning mix from New Orleans, we decided to throw it on a batch of wings to see how it would turn out — the skin was crisp, flavorful and absolutely delicious.

Alternatively, you could make a spice mixture of your own, or use a pre-made cajun seasoning mix for this recipe.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the broiler on high. Wash and pat dry the wings. On a foil-lined baking sheet or tray, toss the wings with the olive oil and generously season with the seasoning mixture. Cook for about 8 minutes on each side, re-seasoning a little halfway.

Remove from the oven and enjoy immediately!

Blackened Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Blackened Chicken Cooking Tip

Legs take longer than breasts to cook. For more consistent results, mark the chicken on the grill and then finish cooking them in an oven.
