Spicy Oven Baked Barbecued Chicken Wings

A tasty oven barbecue chicken wing, seasoned generously with both Cavender's Greek seasoning and Cajun seasoning, then finished with your favorite barbecue sauce.

Spicy Oven Baked Barbecued Chicken Wings

These oven barbecued wings are a great addition to the wing collection I am building up here. Have a mentioned before how much I love wings? Of course I have!

In my collection, I now have a Buffalo Style Hot Wings deep fried and coated with a buttery hot sauce blend, crispy deep fried Southern Hot Wings, reminiscent of southern fried chicken, Ooey, Gooey Crockpot Honey BBQ Wings and Sticky Sweet and Spicy Wings, made with Hoisin and Thai sweet chili sauce plus a few more that you can find on my chicken page.

These oven baked wings are prepared with a sprinkling of the Greek and Cajun seasonings and then topped off with homemade or dressed up bottled barbecue sauce. A delicious addition to your party fare, or to just munch on over a weekend of movie watching.

For entertaining, I disjoint the wings, saving the tips in the freezer for making stock, but for me and The Cajun, I often just leave them whole. A good pair of kitchen shears does make for a super easy job of disjointing wings and are a great kitchen tool to have.

Here's how to make these delicious barbecued wings.

Recipe: Spicy Oven Baked Barbecued Wings

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 1 hour 15 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Disjoint and separate the wings if desired, reserving wing tips for another use. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place an oven safe rack on top. Spray the rack on both sides generously with non-stick spray. Arrange wings on the rack and season with generously with the Greek seasoning. Add Cajun seasoning to taste. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Remove the wings and increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F. Dab the wings with sauce, use tongs to turn them over, and season the tops. Return to the oven and bake at 425 degrees F for 20 minutes longer. Remove, dab with sauce, turn, dab with sauce and return to the oven for 20 minutes longer. Continue saucing and turning as needed in 10 minute intervals until wings are cooked through.

Cook's Notes: If you don't have an oven safe rack, I highly recommend using Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Aluminum Foil when preparing wings in the oven.

  1. Yummy Yummy and Yummy Mary! Yes the carnivore might even eat these, even though the sauce has some carbs :) Now Red, that's my youngest, he doesn't like sweet so while he would eat 'em, they would be his choice wings. Now me, I'd eat tow plates for sure!

  2. I like the idea that these are baked rather than dep fried, makes it a much easier appetizer especially if youre planning them for Superbowl.

  3. These look great, Mary!

    Since we're all watching our waistlines in January, cooking baked wings makes sense! Thanks.

  4. Since our Christmas wings, my husband has become addicted and just purchased three more packages of wings at the store. I'm going to steal one and try baking them. All of your recipes look which is your favorite? I'm leaning toward the one with the Hoisin sauce.

  5. You must be the wing queen and it may be my favorite chicken part. I'm always looking for good ways to cook wings, especially a finish for smoked ones. Next time I smoke some, I think I'll use your spice suggestions as rubs, pull them when half done then finish in the oven ala Mary.

  6. This sounds delicious! I could for one right now!

  7. those look great! This would be good for the Super Bowl in a few weeks.

  8. I never fry wings anymore, I love them fire roasted on my Big Green Egg, which is like a wood fired oven in this case. It just gets that sauce baked on so good compared to just frying and tossing when you do them baked, don't you think?

  9. what is better than wings!

    and superbowl Sunday is coming

  10. Thanks for this recipe! My husband got a nice spicy BBQ sauce in NC and wanted to try it on wings. Since we have no grill (ugh, apartment living), I wanted to try baking. Your recipe was the greatest! I've read through the rest of your blog, and I love it too. Big fan of homestyle cooking, so thanks for sharing your dishes.

    1. You're welcome, thank you so much for taking the time to comment and welcome!! I hope you come back to visit again!

  11. I love southern cooking! I'm from Boston, and visited my BFF's home state of Mississippi for her wedding last year, enjoyed the atmosphere and the great food. Skipped over to New Orleans and more great food filled my tummy. I also got the chance to pick up some Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning which I absolutely love. Found this recipe this morning and it looked so wings are almost done! They smell great and look great! Thanks Mary!

  12. I love Southern Food! I'm from Boston and visited Mississippi, my best friend's home state for her wedding. So thankful she chose to take her wedding back home, MS is a beautiful place with GREAT food (Pig Out Inn and Natchez...yum)! Got a chance to pick up some Slap Ya Mama while in New Orleans and I absolutely love it! Found this recipe this morning and was so excited about trying these wings! They're almost done, look great and smell Fabulous! I can't wait to dig in. Thanks Mary!

  13. Hi
    Is there a substitution for the Cavender's Greek seasoning? I've never seen it anywhere before. Thanx
