The ultimate chicken wings

I wanted to write about these little guys back when the superbowl was happening but they wouldn’t of gotten the attention they deserved as everyone was writing about their superbowl recipes.  Plus, I was stuck in bed sick and not able to cook anything.

So a few weeks back,  at the  anti-valentines day’s potluck ( Yes, this happened, we all wore black and drank lots and lots of wine), I made chicken wings. How appropriate right?  Actually, they were drummettes but wings sound better and the recipe still applies.

I got this recipe from my brother in law who actually got it from his mother.  As soon as I had them, I knew I had to have the recipe.


Mini Chicken Wings or Drummettes
garlic salt
garlic powder
celery salt
onion powder

These are the 5 top seasonings I use, but you can substitute one or two with one you prefer. I know this seems very sodium heavy, but they are really delicious so you must try them, just don’t eat all of them to yourself. It will be hard but trust me its for the best.



  • Preheat Oven at 350 degrees
  • Using a Cookie Tray – lay out the chicken drummettes evenly on the pan

Sprinkle each seasoning on the individual chicken pieces, then flip each piece over and sprinkle the other side.

Cook for 45 minutes in oven.  Mid-way thru flip over each drummete. While baking, the chicken will create natural juices and will be flavorful inside and out.

  6. My husband could eat ALL of these, no problem. We love chicken wings but I don`t make them that often for some reason. I love all the seasonings – perfect!

  7. I adore any kind of chicken wing. In fact, my mom and I used to fight over the ones on a whole chicken whenever she’d roast them. Your spice combination looks absolutely wonderful. Yum!

  10. These look great. Glad you are feeling better now. I am going to try them. You make it sound so simple. I may add fresh lemon on top as well as see how that goes.

  12. Man, I love food blogs! So many great ideas. I know I’d have to sprinkle or douse mine in some hot sauce or bbq.
