This pub staple is a definite crowd pleaser and it’s so simple to make. They make perfect appetizers or a fun dinner served with fries and a big green salad.


3 lbs (1.36 kg) split chicken wings
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
chopped parsley and/or chives (garnish)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pat the chicken wings with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture and place wings in a large bowl. Toss the wings in the olive oil, making sure each wing is coated.

Combine salt and pepper together in a bowl and sprinkle the mixture over the wings, tossing well.

Place chicken wings in a single layer on a the parchement lined baking sheet. If any wings looks like they could use a bit more salt & pepper, feel free to sprinkle some on now.

Bake for about 40 minutes, but depending on your oven, you should start checking at 30 mins. The wings should be crispy and golden.

Remove chicken wings from oven and place in a large bowl and garnish with some chopped parsley or chives. These wings are tasty enough on their own, but they do go nicely with your favourite dipping sauces.
