Dry Rub, Fall-Off-the-Bone Chicken Wings

These wings are fall-off-the-bone tender and amazing. They are extremely easy to make and turn out perfect every single time. They are nice and spicy but if you are more fainthearted, you can leave off the cayenne pepper and go light on the hot pepper sauce. Feel free to change up or adjust the spices and sauce mixture to your liking. These are great for parties or as a meal served with some veggies


4 pounds organic chicken wings

Dry Rub:
1 tbsp granulated garlic
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp dry mustard
1 tbsp freshly cracked black pepper
2 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp organic butter
2 tbsp reserved dry rub
1 (12-ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce (check ingredients)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar


Combine all dry rub spices in a large bowl. Reserve 2 tbsp of the mixture. Add the wings to bowl and mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Lay all wings flat on the baking sheet and bake for an hour turning halfway through.

When the wings are almost done, melt the butter and then add other sauce ingredients.

When ready to serve, add the wings to a large serving bowl, pour sauce over the wings and toss.
