These Cajun-flavoured wings bake up beautifully then get a sweet glaze and a spin under the broiler to give them a crispy blackened skin. Recipe by Tablespoon.com.
August 1, 2017

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 3 lb (1.5 kg) chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Position oven rack 4 inches from broiler. Heat oven to 425°F. Line large rimmed baking sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix hot sauce and Cajun seasoning. Add wings; toss to thoroughly coat. Pour onto baking sheet; arrange in single layer.
  • 3
    Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and juice of wings is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F). Remove baking sheet from oven; turn wings. In small bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and tomato paste. Brush wings with butter mixture.
  • 4
    Set oven control to broil. Broil wings 2 to 4 minutes or until crispy and blackened in spots. Top with green onion.

  • Can’t have wings without carrot and celery sticks? Make it Cajun with celery, green bell pepper and green onion sticks.
  • These wings reheat well – but be sure to use the oven instead of the microwave to make the skins crispy again.
