Italian Butter and Garlic Herb Wings Baked

Some of the best wings I have ever had have been baked and not fried, well at least I convinced my waist line of it (smile). I am a big fan of wings that have been marinated and fall off the bone. I often see folks suck the meat clean off the bone and can't ever seem to see how they do that. These fall apart tender wings will do that on their own. They are crispy but still moist, not at all stringy or dried out and these really burst with flavor. Italian herbs with butter make them one of my very favorites!

Italian Butter and Garlic Herb Wings Baked

1 bag of frozen wings thawed or fresh around 4 pounds
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4  teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Mix everything together except the wings in a large bowl.   Add the wings to coat evenly. Place in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight.

Bake at 400 degree hot oven on greased foil or parchment paper until crispy around 1 hour or more. When crispy and browned, coat with 1/2 the butter and herb sauce.  Bake for around 10 minutes pour the rest of the sauce over the wings to soak in the butter and garlic herb sauce (see recipe below) and serve.

1 stick butter (1/2 cup butter)
3 teaspoons minced garlic in olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
