These oven grilled chicken wings are epic in every way. Crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and super tasty with big bold flavors! Enjoy these oven grilled chicken wings on their own (seriously) or pair with your favorite side. My favorite side is some fried plantains and some pepper sauce or spicy/herby mayo. Enjoyment at its peak!

  • 3 pounds chicken wings (about 1 ½ kg) The wing tips should be cut and discarded and the wings should be cut in the middle.
  • ¼ cup suya spice click here for how to make it
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 seasoning cube (Maggi) 4g
  • 1 teaspoon oil I used olive oil
  1. Cover a large baking tray with foil paper then pour oil on top. Rub the oil to ensure that it gets to every corner of the tray.

  2. Wash chicken wings thoroughly then pat dry with paper towels.

  3. Sprinkle seasoning cube and salt over the wings. Toss well to combine. 

  4. Place the suya spice on a plate then place a chicken piece on the spice and move around to coat completely. Repeat process with the remaining pieces of chicken.

    Place each piece of chicken on the prepared tray. Note that the chicken should all be placed on a single layer for even cooking. Do not double one chicken on top of another.

  5. Set the oven to broil then place chicken in and let it cook for 20 minutes. After that, flip to the other side and let it cook for another 10 minutes. Remove and serve warm.

Recipe Notes

1. I used party wings in this recipe which means that the wings were already cut for me. If you are using full chicken wings, cut and discard the wing tips then cut the wings in the middle.

3. You could coat the chicken in the spice rub and place in the fridge for easy grilling the next day.
