You're right--they are awesome. I didn't use as much cayenne as called for and they were still plenty hot for me. I baked them at 450 degrees and they came out nice and crispy. Thanks for the recipe!
After seeing Bergy's photo I knew I had to try these wings. I too made a smaller batch, but I wish I had made more! These were very good and I didn't marinate them overnight. Great punch of flavor from the spices. The heat level was very spicy, but could be cut back if you are not a spicy food fan. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
These are indeed AWESOME wings - I cut the recipe back to apprx 12 1/2 wings - tips removed. Kept a high level of Hot Paprika & Cayenne - the result was fiery hot wonderful wings - Loved them Thanks Suzanne P for a keeper of a recipe
This sounded like a good recipe, so I gave it a try. I made it for a group of friends that we get together with on occasion. Now they request these chicken wings every time we get together! I have always baked them at 425 degrees. They are hot and spicy, but delicious.
This is a winner! Made these for my husband's Mardis Gras-themed birthday party and they were a hit. I used a little less cayenne pepper and replaced the garlic powder with fresh garlic (crushed and blended to a paste).<br/><br/>Looking forward to making these again and experimenting a little with the recipe.
These wings are described perfectly, AWESOME! Made them tonight by cutting the recipe in half as I cook about 20 wings. Marinated them for about 5 hours in ziplock bag in the refrigerator. Baked in oven on 400 for 45 mines. Broiled them for about 5 minutes just to dry out a little bit. These were such a hit. My family loved them. I will make again and try to finish them off on the grill for the smoky taste.
This recipe is AMAZING!!!! however i usually use a little less cayenne, a two tablespoon of garlic powder instead!
This recipe is the bomb!!! I got this recipe about 3 years ago and make this for the family. I have shared this recipe also and everyone loves them. We like them best cooked on the BBQ, I have tried them in the oven and they are not as good. You won't go wrong with this wonderful wing recipe...Ya just have to try them once!!
We love this recipe! The cajun seasoning is very authentic and just right for our taste. My husband and I decided to start a Sunday night wing tradition with the idea of trying a new recipe every week. This was about the third one we tried, and now we just go back and forth between these and the equally excellent Oven Crisp Chicken Wings. Turning them once part way through the cooking time really crisps them up all over. Good left-over, too!
I used only 1/3 tsp. of cayenne in this recipe, because my family is mostly spice-phobic. I thought they turned out perfectly seasoned and will make them again this way in the future. My only obstacle is remembering that they need to sit overnight and not waiting until the last minute.
