I’m back with another awesome wing recipe for you today! These simple salt and pepper chicken wings are everything you could ever want in a wing. Crispy, flavorful and easy to make. You’re gonna want to double the recipe, especially if you’re making these for game day or for more than two people because I kid you not, my boyfriend and I finished these babies off in 15 minutes while standing at the kitchen counter.
If you’ve never had salt and pepper chicken wings before, first of all, skip all this and go make them right now. Kidding… kind of. Salt and pepper chicken wings are a really common menu item at almost every Chinese food restaurant. Unlike this recipe for them though, your local Chinese take-out joint fries them to make them crispy and there’s probably a hearty dose of MSG. These wings are baked and only uses a small handful of healthy ingredients.
I prefer to use finely chopped green onions in this recipe but I will say that parsley is a good alternative. I’m a big fan of using what you already have on hand, and because the salt and pepper chicken wings don’t require many ingredients, you’ll probably already have everything you need. Aside from the green onion, and if that’s the case, switch it out for something already hanging out in your fridge. Or skip it all together. They’ll still be delicious.
