Old Bay Chicken Wings

Roasted chicken wings flavored with old bay seasoning and butter, then served with cocktail sauce.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 15 minutes
    •    Cook time: 30 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4-6


    •    1 tbsp lemon juice
    •    cocktail sauce for dipping
    •    8 tbsps (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter
    •    1 tbsp old bay seasoning, plus more for dusting
    •    3 pounds chicken wings, separated tips from drummettes


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Allow the wings to come to room temperature (or else the sauce will be more difficult to spread on them). Pat the chicken wings dry.

  2. Make Old Bay sauce: Melt the butter in a small pot and whisk in the Old Bay and lemon juice. Let it cool enough to feel lukewarm.

  3. Mix the sauce again and toss the chicken wings in half the sauce.
  4. Bake: Arrange the wings in one layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, aluminum foil, or Silpat and bake at 425°F for 25 minutes.

  5. Broil: Take the wings out of the oven and turn on the broiler. Set a rack about 6 inches under the broiler. Turn the wings over on the baking sheet and put under the broiler for 3-4 minutes, or until they are nicely browned.

  6. To serve, toss in the remaining sauce and set on a plate. Dust with more Old Bay and serve with your favorite cocktail sauce.
