Oven Baked Chicken Wings

I’ll admit, sometimes I just don’t want to go outside and fire up the grill. That’s when oven baked chicken chicken wings happen. A tip on oven baking your chicken wings. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. It makes clean up effortless. I use parchment paper all the time, and for these wings, I much prefer it over aluminum foil. 

Grilled Chicken Wings

Now this recipe can be adapted for your grill too. Just skip the oven baking of the wings and make them grilled chicken wings. Cooking times will differ, but not dramatically. You finished temperature for these wings should be 165. 

Sauces for Chicken Wings

Honestly, just about every single orange slice in this fridge pack is picture perfect and juice just bursts when you bite into them. Makes for great sauces for chicken wings. But, we’re gonna make these oranges into a sticky glaze that’s going to be just spectacular on the wings.

So, as the wings are roasting in the oven, yes, less calories and so simple, you’re going to make the glaze that you’ll coat on the cooked wings. There’s plenty more leftover for dipping. And, you can even use this sauce for other things, like on grilled chicken or pork chops.

You’ll get rave reviews for these wings. And, try making a ‘wing tray bar’ like you see here! It’s nice to have small plates and put all those other bites on your plate that you just love with a bite of the mandarin spicy chicken wing! Enjoy the sunshine on your palate, my friends!

Spicy and Sweet Sauce

Mind you, nothing is more delicious than some sweet with your heat. And, the subtle natural sweetness of the Dole Sunshine Mandarin oranges is perfect in this recipe. Now, we’re going to be using the new Dole Fridge Packs, which come in several varieties including pineapples, mixed fruit, and peaches, as well as mandarin oranges.

These Fridge Packs are perfect for recipes like this where you need not an entire can or jar, but something smaller. And, something that comes with its very own pop top that you can safely store in the refrigerator for using the remaining orange slices.

Easy Spicy Chicken Wings Recipe

  1. Crispy wings… chunky sauce… sweet heat? What a glorious combination of textures and flavors, Ally! (If only I could eat your photos right now — so tempting.) I love that you coat your wings afterwards, too, and offer extra sauce for dipping. That was a phenomenon new to me after we moved away from “drown everything in BBQ sauce” land. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Your recipe highlights the best of both. Thanks for your food creativity and dedication to Dole.

    1. You always have the best words! Thank you, dear Kimmeee! Yes, I love naked crispy wings too. Just a light coat of sauce then let the water decide how much more! Hey, I think Russ might even like these, luv!???
