Twice Cooked Chicken Wings


Serves 4


2lbs. Chicken Wings (separated at joints)

7 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning

1 tsp Chinese 5 spice

1 cup Dark Brown Sugar

1 tsp Paprika

Fresh Cracked Pepper (to taste)

Kosher Salt (to taste)

Parchment Paper


  1. Rinse wings under cold water
  2. Dry well with paper towels and place wings on a wire rack for about 10 minutes
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  4. In a bowl add all dry ingredients and mix well with a whisk to make rub. Taste rub to determine if heat is at a desired level, more heat needs more Old Bay less heat requires more Brown Sugar
  5. Transfer all of the rub to a loaf pan (or something close in size)
  6. Line a large rectangular baking pan with parchment paper and place wire rack inside
  7. Adding 1 wing at a time to loaf pan, shake…..coating both sides of the wing evenly and densely, pushing down at times to get a good coat
  8. Transfer coated wing to wire rack, leaving room between wings (use 2 pans if needed). Repeat until all wings are coated 
  9. Place pan(s) in oven for about 15 -20 minutes (until almost fully cooked)
  10. Remove pans from oven and let wings sit for at least 5 minutes on rack
  11. Add wings to deep fryer in small batches (careful not to crowd) set at 375 degrees and cook until dark (about 5 minutes)
  12. Let wings cool for 5 minutes for that crispy texture.
