I have to admit, until recently, wings were another bullet point on my list of things I "don't do". Old black and white films, nonfiction bestsellers, eggplant, and smoothies (also until recently) are just a few other items on this rapidly decreasing, apparently utterly ridiculous list. Because let's be serious. Wings are delicious. Which is why I'm so exited to share these Sweet and Spicy Baked Orange Chicken Wings with you.
In case you'e flipping out about that first sentence where I said chicken wings weren't my thing, don't fret! I think I've figured out my issue: if they're not crispy, it's not happening.
It's like a mealy apple. You take a bite of that awesome looking, shiny piece of fruit aaaaand it's mushy and gross. Same with an "un-crispy" chicken wing. I can't handle it. Do you agree? Well never fear! I've discovered that by baking them, like these Sweet and Spicy Baked Orange Chicken Wings, you not only skip the fattening fry step but pretty much guarantee a perfectly crispy skin on every piece!
This is actually one of my favorite go to recipes because these wings can be served either as a snack slash appetizer or pile them on top of rice for a delicious entreé. Easy to make AND easy to clean! None of that deep frying mess and you get to nix those unnecessary calories. Dan even loved these! And he's a die hard chicken wings fan 😉 usually the spicier the better!
