Tapas - Spanish-Style Garlic Chicken Wings

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a simple recipe meant for those who enjoy chicken wings but would like to find a healthier way to prepare them. The wings are marinated and baked in a typically Spanish fashion and they are almost effortless to prepare, especially if you have your butcher break down the wings for you. The wings are at their best when allowed to marinate for eight hours or more before they go into the oven. They do not have the heat of Buffalo wings, but they are enormously flavorful and can be served with a hot sauce if that is more to your liking. I do hope you'll keep this recipe on your radar. Those of you who make the wings will not be disappointed. They would be great for a game day get-together. Here is how they are made.

12 chicken wings
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 medium onion thinly sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
2 small fresh red chilies, finely chopped (1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes can be substituted)
1 tablespoon ground sweet smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground hot paprika
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano


1) Remove and discard wing tips. Separate first and second joints of chicken wings.
2) Place chicken in a medium bowl. Add vinegar, onions, garlic, chilies, both paprikas and oil. Toss to combine. Cover bowl and refrigerate overnight.
3) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place chicken mixture in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for about 50 minutes, or until chicken is brown and cooked through. Stir in oregano. Yield: 24 pieces.

I bake my hot wings, too, but I like the flavor combination of this recipe. I'll have to give it a try at the next football gathering!
