Garlic Ranch Chicken Wings | Let the Baking Begin!

Man food is here, and if you’ve got a sports fan in your house you’ll need lots of it this weekend. My husband likes chicken wings crispity-crispy, so this recipe the way I make it for him. Baking the chicken wings on parchment is a must if you want them crispy, as it makes it much much easier to flip them when you want to crisp up both sides. So get yourself a 5 pound bag of chicken wings at the store and get cooking! Garlic Ranch Chichen Wings| by Let the Baking Begin!_-4

My family enjoys these Garlic Ranch Chicken Wings with mashed potatoes and a side of salad.

What will you be eating them with?

Garlic Ranch Chicken Wings

Ingredients:
5 lbs chicken wings
2 tsp paprika
2 tablespoons dry ranch dressing
1 Tbsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder, or 3-4 pressed garlic cloves
3 tablespoons mayo or 2 tablespoons oil

How to make Garlic Ranch Chicken Wings:
Use a ziplock bag or a large bowl to put all ingredients in, then mix together to coat. For best results it’s best to leave the chicken wings to marinate for a couple hours or even overnight, but I’ve done it right away as well with wonderful results.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper then spread the wings all across. You might need to use 2 baking sheets, as to not overcrowd the baking pan (the picture below shows what overcrowding looks like 😀 I just wanted a lot at once 🙂 ). Allowing the hot air to circulate all around will make the chicken wings more crispy all around.

Bake for 45 minutes in a preheated to 400F oven or until the tops are golden and the skin is crispy. Rotate the pan halfway through. Now, flip each wing upside down and bake on the other side for another 10 minutes to crisp up the bottom. This is when you’ll really appreciate that you had parchment paper – it prevents the wings from sticking and makes it much easier to flip them upside down.

    I’ve made these wings at least a dozen times… I feel compelled to leave a comment here. This is my GO TO wings recipe. the kids love them, the mayo crisps up the skin oh so nicely. I haven’t made any modifications because none are needed. Dee-licious

    These are insanely delicious!
    Due to unfortunate circumstances…(I was too lazy), I marinated them for 24+ hours.
    Awesome recipe. So easy.
    I baked them on a pyramid baking mat so they would star crispy and it worked perfectly.
    This is saved and will be used over and over again!

    • Longer marinating time is never an unfortunate circumstance, but instead a benefit (within reason, of course), so I’m glad you liked them! Pyramid baking mat sounds like a great idea!

    Do you recommend the wings not be frozen when I toss them?

    · Reply
    • Yes it is best if they are thawed. Otherwise it will take more time to bake, which I haven’t done and couldn’t recommend how long to increase the cooking time for.

    I am so making these. I don’t think my husband and I alone could eat 5lbs though lol going to have to cut this in half or something! Can’t wait to try!!!

    • Since wings are a lot of bone, it’s not as much as you think 🙂 Good luck!

    I found mixing the mayo with the ingredients to be a pain. I slathered with mayo then sprinkled spices over. Cant wait untill there done marinating.
