  • 4 pounds chicken wings I used fresh but you could use frozen, just follow package directions for thawing them
  • 2 Tbs oil
  • 1 Tbs Spanish paprika
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp coarse kosher salt
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 4 Tbs butter, melted


  • Mix together the paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, peppers, coarse kosher salt, dry mustard, chili powder, cayenne powder and cumin in a small bowl.
  • To a large bowl, I added the wings then drizzled them with 2 Tbs oil. Sprinkle the wings with the dry rub over the top. Then rub all the wings with that good flavor.
  • On a prepared cookie sheet I put down tinfoil and a baking rack. Lay the wings out then put into a preheated 400 deree oven for 45 minutes.
  • When chicken is done, melt 4 Tbs of butter. Toss to coat the chicken with butter.
  • Serve with blue cheese dressing on the side. Enjoy!
