Prep 5 min
Total 45 min
Makes 24 wings



2 kg
chicken wings, or drumettes, about 4 lbs
2 tbsp
Montreal steak spice, Montreal chicken spice or Homemade Spice Mix (see below)
1 tbsp
1 tbsp
cider or white vinegar
1 tbsp


  • ARRANGE racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat oven to 450F (230C). Line 2 baking sheets with foil. For crispier wings, place chicken on a wire rack on each sheet. Cut off and discard wing tips, as they tend to burn and don’t have much meat on them. Place wings in a large bowl. Sprinkle with Montreal steak spice and drizzle with Tabasco, vinegar and oil. Toss to evenly coat wings.
  • SPREAD wings out on racks. Roast in preheated oven until skin is crispy and brown, 40 to 50 minutes. Don’t turn wings over during roasting. Remove from oven. Fantastic with beer and tangy coleslaw.
