This past summer, when I shared my favorite chicken wing recipe, I said that I’d probably share others. Here I am, making good on that. And usually I’m all about a great sauce on my wings, but every so often, we opt for the dry rub. And I have a pretty rockin’ dry rub. Check it.
Here’s what you need to do for the dry rub:
• 1/2 tsp dried oregano
• 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
• 1/2 tsp dried thyme
• 1/2 tsp dried basil
• 1/2 tsp fennel seed
• 1 tsp dried parsley
• 1 tsp Italian seasoning
– mash together the above ingredients in a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder or something, then mix in the following:
• 1/2 tsp cumin
• 1/2 tsp paprika
• 1/2 tsp onion powder
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp ancho chili powder
• 1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
• 1 tsp brown sugar
• 1 1/2 tsp salt
This is a pretty good rub you can use for all kinds of stuff, but this time, specifically, wings. This is enough rub for 24 wing sections (12 full wings). The routine is the same as my barbecued wings, plus a few spices, minus the sauce at the end. Here’s a little refresher.
First, place an empty pan in the oven and preheat to 450. Put the wings in a bowl or ziplock bag with 2 Tbsp cooking oil. Mix around to coat the wings with the oil evenly, then add the rub and mix again. Let the wings sit in the bowl/bag for 15 minutes or so, while the oven preheats.
Remove the pan from the oven quickly and close the oven door. Put the chicken directly on the hot pan and spread it out evenly in one layer, but not too close together. If the chicken pieces are too close together, they’ll steam and not get crispy. Place them back in the oven (on the center rack) and bake for 20-30 minutes, until they’re browned well. Heads up, the oven is gonna smoke. A lot. Just crack open a window, because it’s worth it.
Once the wings are done cooking, serve ’em up!
Welp, there ya go. Dry-rubbed wings. Have you ever baked chicken wings? If not, you should try it out. Not nearly as heavy as fried, and not nearly as gross as steamed or stewed or whatever other cooking techniques make them soggy. Enjoy, friends!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA.

We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
