Crispy Turkey Wings


Happy Thanksgiving! I thought I’d try something new and a little different. Since we live in Canada now, and celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving in October, I don’t feel like cooking a whole turkey three months in a row. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love turkey, but that’s a lot of work! So here’s a little non-traditional turkey treat that didn’t take any real time to prepare, and I will be making it on a regular basis now, because we all loved it, and it a was inexpensive turkey dinner.

I picked up a package of turkey wings from the Asian market while I was there yesterday, and couldn’t wait to try to make them like chicken wings.

It’s super simple!

  • Dissect them into the three pieces. I like the pointy part too, but some people don’t. chicken1
  • Sprayed a 9x2x13 inch pan generously with olive oil, then season the wing pieces fairly heavily with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. (I think I’m going to try other flavors next time.)
  • Lay the pieces in the pan, and spray the tops with olive oil.
  • Cover and bake in a 375 degree pre-heated oven for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and transfer chicken to a baking sheet with wire rack.
  • Spray again with olive oil.
  • Turn oven up to 500 degrees and bake for 10 minutes until crispy.
  • Comes out golden brown, crispy on the outside and moist meat. So good!

One good sized wing (all three pieces) was enough protein for dinner for each of us.
