Just a few seasonings straight from the spice cupboard are enough to liven up chicken wings. This is a fiery dry rub, so be sure to have a cold beer on hand.

Indoor Oven Sizzle

Skip grilling and roast wings instead. Position oven racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Line 2 baking sheets with foil. Roast in 375F (190C) oven until skin is crispy, 30 to 40 minutes. There’s no need to turn wings over during roasting.
