STOP. DROP. AND COOK these Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings.

I mean it. Make these absolutely RIGHT NOW. This is me bossing you around. Go to the store, get thee some chicken wings and make these this weekend. I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys that I am typing this up as fast as my wee fingers can. I have a pile of kids Cub camping gear to pack, my own things to pack for this weekend and a dirty kitchen (well, that’s nothing new) and I am seriously ignoring my mile long To-Do list in order to get this recipe to you STAT.

Do any of you like the salt and pepper squid from most Chinese restaurants? It is the one thing that my sister and I agree on when it comes to food. She hates anything spicy, but will eat that squid.

These wings mimic that squid – minus the breading!

 

 

I have been looking for a mind-blowing Salt and Pepper Chicken Wing recipe for as long as I can remember.

Dudes.

This is it.

Just look. And drool.

How to Make Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Combine salt and pepper together in a bowl. Place chicken wings on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Sprinkle the wings with the salt and pepper, then shake on the baking tray to cover completely.
  • Bake for 15 minutes then turn and bake for another 15-20 minutes until crispy and cooked through. We like our wings very crispy.
  • As soon as the wings are close to being done, heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat then add the garlic and onions. (jalapeno as well if you are adding it in.)
  • Cook until the garlic has browned slightly.
    Remove chicken wings from oven and place in a large bowl.
  • Toss the chicken wings with the garlic oil until completely coated.
  • Place on a serving platter, spooning any leftover garlic oil over the top.
  • Serve and enjoy!

These wings are so simple that I literally had all the ingredients in the fridge. The addition of sesame oil, green onions and garlic is brilliant. Sure, maybe some of you knew this already. I didn’t. This is a slightly Asian inspired take on Salt and Pepper Chicken Wing and it makes all the difference.   Close up of Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings with Garlic Oil and Chopped Green Onions on Top

Now you. Reader you. Go and get the ingredients for these and make them this weekend. This is a large recipe that makes approximately 36 wings, so enough for 6 people to have as a snack.

I also have a high salt ratio, as I like salty, salty wings. If you want less salt, leave out one teaspoon. Mike and I had these for dinner and then ate them the next day as well.Do you even want to know how they tasted cold?

Better than hot. Oh em gee you guys, the best cold chicken I have ever eaten! The flavors just soaked in overnight and well.. it took all my willpower to leave some for Mike for his lunch. Don’t be scared of red pepper flakes, that is a classic combination – sesame oil and red pepper flakes, just like my favourite Chinese dishes!

Happy cooking!

Love you more than chocolate,

    These have totally become my go to chicken wing recipe. They are a special treat for “Walking Dead” eating…you are da bomb for sharing this recipe. 

    • HeatherGriffin1 says

      LindaCovello Perfect. I felt like a chef…tossing them after the fact. JUST brilliant.

  3. Russ says

    I cooked these tonight and they were absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  4. SashaHoney says

    Wow! I do not know where to start. Well first of all a big thanks to you for posting this recipe! 

    I cannot believe how authentic these wings taste! I’ve spent a small fortune on S&P Chicken Wings from our local Chinese so to be able to make these wings as good as (Or forgive me for boasting, but better than!) the takeaway is mind blowing to me! 

    I cannot wait to show these off to all of my family and friends. My daughter was so impressed by me last night when I made these I felt so proud! 😀

    As you can see by the photo they turned out fabulous! 

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      SashaHoney AWESOME!!! I love seeing photos! Yummm!

  5. The Kitchen Magpie says

    They are plain, but only one of my picky eaters will eat them. Depends on the kid entirely!

  6. Carmin Misner says

    New to your blog and page, excited about a few things I’ve checked out already, and love that you’re an Alberta girl too!

  7. Merrianne Hrycin says

    Always looking for new chicken wing recipes. And this one is so simple. Can’t wait to try.

  8. Shelley Jones says

    OMG, yes! I need to make these. Thank you!

  9. Podlfc says

    We loved these wings so tasty, I added a touch of ginger and it takes them to a whole new level of flavour.

  10. Alfeezgirl says

    Well I’m new to this site, but OH BABY!  Yes!  This recipe for wings is the bomb!!  That’s all, just the bomb!  Easy as can be and tasty as ever!!  Thanks for being bossy!

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      @Alfeezgirl I am SO glad that you liked them!! Welcome to the site, I hope you find many more recipes that you love! 

  11. 1DragonObserves says

    My husband and I loved this recipe. However my son did not. Do you have any kid friendly food recipes?

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      1DragonObserves My trick is to cook part of the meal plain for my picky eater.  Most kids will eat plain chicken wings roasted, no problem. Making pasta? Leave aside some plain for them to have with butter. Eventually they will start eating the same as you, but for now, it’s best to eat what you like and leave a portion plain, unsauced, etc for them!

  12. Ethel MacDonald says

    I have all ingredients except the wings of course. I will let you know how it goes 🙂

  13. Ethel MacDonald says

    Bookmarked this! The best salt and pepper wings I ever had were at a scottish pub in Edmonton (I forget the name) when I used to live there. The waitresses wore kilts (rather shorts ones….). I will have to give these a go.

  14. Sarah [NurseLovesFarmer.com] says

    These were SO great, thanks! I thought I would maximize my salt & pepper so I just tossed them in a bowl….but I will follow the instructions as is next time because they were AWESOME but definitely too seasoned, just going to sprinkle instead of toss. Thanks!

    • Karlynn Johnston says

      I’m so glad that you liked them! And yes, the sprinkle part works the best. It just gets them enough for taste!

      • PatBerrigan says

        @Karlynn Johnston  I make my own organic lemon pepper seasoning (no salt) and want to try this recipe with my seasoning!
