three classic chicken wing recipes

Three easy, fast ways to make chicken wings that you'll use again and again! | | #recipes #chicken #wings

Any other football fans out there? We know there are! Sundays here are spent watching football…all day. We are Viking fans AND Packer fans (for those that don’t know-this is a very, very odd combo!) and enjoy football more than most anything. But, football isn’t the same without a cold beer and chicken wing in hand.

I have three standard ways of making wings that I rotate each Sunday. Sometimes I’ll even make all three (they really are that fast!). I make an easy baked chicken wings for when we have a great dipping sauce we want to try. Glazed wings are the favorite when we have company and want to cut down on dishes. I pan-fry wings with veggies for when chicken wings are the meal rather than an appetizer. Today I’m going to give you all three of my basic recipes. These are very, very fast and easy to make!

Gluten-Free Version: Wings are by definition gluten-free, it’s the sauces to be mindful of. Just read ingredients before purchasing and you will be fine. Or, make your own sauces!

easy, baked wings. Super fast and easy recipe! |

These easy Baked Chicken Wings are the most basic version you can do. Serve them up with a great sauce and you can’t go wrong! We love to have Tastefully Simple’s Parmesan-Garlic Sauce with this one! Levi says it’s kinda spicy and sweet…yummy!

Baked Chicken Wings

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
# of servings 8


  • 8 chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Mix the olive oil with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the chicken wings with the oil mixture.
  • Bake on a cookie sheet for 45-55 minutes (or until no longer pink) in a 400 degree oven.
  • Pair with a great dipping sauce.


I use frozen chicken wings, if you use thawed reduce your time to about 30 minutes (but watch them after 20!)

A fast, easy way to make glazed wings! | | #chicken #recipes #wings

Glazed wings are great for football games, parties, and appetizers because you can pack the flavor into the wings and eliminate sauces and dips. Choose a great glaze like Tastefully Simple’s Bayou Bourbon™ Glaze (a fave of ours!).

Glazed Chicken Wings


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup prepared glaze Tastefully Simple Maple Bourbon glaze
  • 8 chicken wings


  • Mix oil, salt, pepper, and glaze.
  • Toss chicken wings with oil & glaze combo.
  • Place glazed wings onto greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes (or until no longer pink in center) in pre-heated oven.


if wings won't take the glaze right away let them sit in the glaze and marinate for a few minutes, turning occasionally.
Feel free to bake BOTH baked and glazed wings in the same pan...just use the 375 degrees instead of the 400 degrees that the baked asks for.

Make wings in pan for a one-pot, easy meal |
The pan-fried wings are great for a full-meal idea. I usually make them with veggies and a sauce, requiring the use of a fork and knife to eat them. These wings are very fast to make and require little prep work. I love using Tastefully Simple’s Honey Teriyaki Sauce for these! Tastefully Simple’s Honey Teriyaki Sauce, onion, carrots, and a little green onion…tasty!

Pan-fried Chicken Wings

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes


  • 1 cup sauce I love Tastefully Simple's Teryiaki Sauce
  • 1 cup chopped veggies I use carrots & onion for my teryiaki version
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 10 chicken wings thawed
  • diced green onion


  • On medium heat, heat oil in a saute pan.
  • Add salt, pepper, and chicken wings
  • Brown the chicken wings on each side (about 2 minutes on each side)
  • Add the sauce & veggies, turn down the heat to low, and cover.
  • Cook covered for about 45 minutes, stirring often.
  • Serve topped with chopped green onion.


Be sure to use veggies chopped rather small so they have time to cook with the chicken.
Add more sauce to yours, if you like.
