Mustard Baked Chicken Wings

I almost put healthy in the title.  I am not sure I can get away with that.  I have been making deep fried mustard and batter dipped chicken wings for years now.  The only thing is, deep frying food takes a lot of work and isn’t that good for us.  So I decided to create a baked version of our Mustard Chicken Wings.

Baking these chicken wings exceeded my expectations (which was low since frying stuff tastes awesome) by quite a bit.  I might never go back to frying them it was so much easier and just as tasty.  The only downside to the meal is I can’t get Spencer to eat bone in chicken.  He just doesn’t understand or trust bones in food. Oh well, I will just have to cut up some of the chicken for him.

This meal is inexpensive and comes together fast.  You need to ready 3 phases of flavor for chicken. First spice & herb, second mustard, and third baking mix and butter.

Step one – I mix salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and some garden herbs in a small bowl.  This mix gets sprinkled on both side of chicken wings.

Step two – paint both sides of chicken wings yellow with mustard.

Now in a bowl I mix 3/4 cup baking mix (i.e. Bisquik) with 3 tablespoons grated butter.  I take butter out of fridge and using a box grated shred it and quickly work it into the flour mixture.  I do it this way because applying melted butter on top of batter usually ends up displacing the flour on the chicken wing.  Now the butter mix will form a golden crunchy crust on wing.

Flavor phase 3 – roll wings into butter mix batter and place on baking sheet lined with silicone (or parchment/foil).  Make sure to knock any excess batter off.

After 25 minutes in a 450 degree oven they will come out looking wonderful.  After Norah devoured a few of these I began to realize this recipe would require doubling in the not so distant future.
