Spice-Drawer Chicken Wings

Spice-Drawer Chicken Wings

This dry rub is great on any cut of chicken, including whole birds for roasting (make a double batch). This recipe is from Where Cooking Begins by Carla Lalli Music.


  • 4 tsp. kosher salt, plus more
  • ½ tsp. MSG, plus more for serving
  • 1 cup mint and/or basil leaves
  • Limes and small Persian cucumbers, cut into wedges (for serving)

Recipe Preparation

  • Mix oregano, granulated garlic, paprika, sugar, 4 tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. MSG in a small bowl. Arrange chicken wings on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Season all over with spice mix. Let sit at room temperature 30 minutes, or cover and chill up to 2 days.

  • Place racks in center and upper third of oven; preheat to 375°. Drizzle wings with oil and toss to coat. Bake on center rack, turning with tongs halfway through, until cooked through and skin is golden brown, 30–35 minutes.

  • Remove from oven. Heat broiler. Broil wings on upper rack, turning every 2–3 minutes, until skin is deeply browned and starting to char at the edges, 5–7 minutes (watch them closely).

  • Transfer wings to a platter, season with salt and a little more MSG. Top with herbs and lime and cucumber wedges.

Recipe by Carla Lalli MusicReviews SectionMade these with some hefty full size bone-in-skin-on wings from the farmers market and they turned out perfectly! Didn’t use the MSG (does anyone else get bad dreams when they eat msg?!) and it Seemed a little under seasoned but overall very very good. Didn’t use any fresh herbs or the cukes either and we still raved about them. Definitely the longer ahead of time you spice them the better!AnonymousSpokane , WA06/19/20these are amazing - i made them two nights in a row!!! i followed the recipe exactly (except for the MSG) and thought they were so perfectly flavorful. The broiling at the end made the skin so nice and crispy. 5 minutes for me was perfect, flipping halfway through. Careful not to burn them!can the spice rub be made without the MSG?These are TO DIE for! I cannot recommend these enough. They're so easy, but packed with salty and umami goodness. The hit of acid with the lime at the end brings the dish home. 10/10 - will make again in a heartbeat. I'd even proudly serve these at a party. Great job, Carla!AnonymousMichigan09/02/19
