Spicy Baked Chicken Wings
Making baked chicken wings is easy . You simply fry up the chicken pieces in a little oil until golden, then add in spices and seasonings. These flavors meld perfectly together to create one of the most aromatic, fragrant and mouth-watering dishes you will ever taste. Then, add in your favorite sauce and you’ve got yourself one amazing dish. The secret to these wings is the low temperature of the oven. You want the outside of the wings to be crisp, the inside to be moist and flavorful. This is how you achieve the perfect balance of sweet, savory and spicy.
You would think that baking the wings would make them dry and tasteless, but that is not the case at all. The pastry-like texture of the outside layer of the wing is exactly what makes these wings so addictive. If you are not a big fan of spicy foods, you can definitely leave out the chilies and spices, but the combination of them, especially the chipotle, gives these wings a spicy bite that is so good. The ancho chilies in this dish also provide a lot of heat, but are remarkably balanced out by the other flavors.

Place the wings back on the wire rack, then place them in the oven to broil for 5-8 minutes on low to let the sauce caramelize. Keep a watch on them to make sure they don’t burn. Take your wings out.
