  • 1 lb chicken wings (about 12 pieces)
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil (or other oil)
  • 1/2 cup flour (or a little more)
  • 1-3 tbsp dried herbs or spices to your taste (I like 21 Salut seasoning, homemade piri piri, homemade Creole or Cajun seasoning)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (for more spicy wings)
  • salt

For the mint yogurt sauce:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium garlic clove, finely minced or put through a garlic press
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • ground black pepper


For the mint yogurt sauce:

  1. Combine all the ingredients. The sauce can be made a day before and stored tightly covered in a refrigerator.

For the chicken wings:

  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken wings. Split them at the joints into three parts, saving tips for a chicken stock.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
  3. In a zipper bag, mix the flour and the seasoning. Add the wings, close the bag and shake so the wings are well dusted with the flour.
  4. Place the wings in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet (lined with foil if you wish) shaking off excess flour. Very lightly drizzle the wing pieces with olive oil.
  5. Cook the wings for 30-40 minutes, turning once.
  6. Remove from the oven; serve with vegetables and the mint yogurt sauce.

Recipe Notes

The exact cooking time depends on the oven and the size of the wings.
