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.
- 3 pounds chicken wings, split
- Olive oil
- Blackened seasoning mix
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!
