Crispy Baked Moroccan Chicken Wings with Yogurt Dip

from 2 votes

Chicken wings are a family favorite around my house, whether it’s a game day, a random Tuesday or the Super Bowl Sunday. We don’t ever need an excuse to gather ‘round a platter piled high with our favorite finger-friendly snack. And while I’ve dreamt up endless variations on chicken wings, from teriyaki and Thai peanut to orange chicken and 5-spice, there’s just something about a dry rub paired with a refreshing dip that makes the crowds go wild.

All of my chicken wing recipes have one major theme in common: The oven! I’ve perfected a technique that ditches the deep fryer in favor of a baking sheet and a trusty sheet of foil. There’s less oil, way less mess and, best of all, you don’t have to man a fryer while the game’s on or your friends are busy chatting and toasting in the other room.

So I’ve partnered with the team at Reynolds Wrap® to bring you this quick and easy recipe for Crispy Baked Moroccan Chicken Wings with Yogurt Dip as part of their Endless Table program (Note: Instagram enthusiasts will not want to miss their feed!) The wings are coated in spices then arranged on a non-stick foil-lined baking sheet to ensure golden brown poultry perfection. The crispy wings are transferred to a serving platter and are immediately ready for dipping and dunking in a refreshing herb yogurt sauce made with mint, cilantro and lemon juice.

Ready to transport your taste buds to Morocco? Preheat your oven, grab the foil and get ready for a flavor-packed finger food quick enough for busy weeknights and impressive enough for weekend get-togethers.

    It’s incredible taste…
    I love it and can’t stop to eat it..
    I subtituted ginger with nutmeg and still great taste!! :P

  2. 5 stars
    I’ve made these three times already and cannot stop eating them! And the yogurt dip is perfect with the Moroccan spices.

  3. This looks incredible and I’ll have to try in the next few days. Not sure if it’s ok to post another link here (so delete if necessary) but this other wing method for the oven is incredible and everyone I’ve shared it with is also using it as their go-to method for crispy wings.

    So now I’m going to use that method (Fifteen Spatulas) with YOUR spice combination.

    Also, in regards to Reynolds I use their no-stick foil because it’s so much easier to get the wings off the foil after baking.

    And…I happened to find your blog today after seeing a recipe for zucchini noodles and Asian stir fry I’m now hooked on your site…and can’t wait to try out some of your recipes on the woman I date (I do all the the cooking).

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, Dave! And I agree that using aluminum foil makes removing the wings from the baking sheet SO much easier. I hope you enjoy the Asian Zucchini Noodle Stir-Fry with Shrimp, and all the other recipes you try!

  4. This looks great, I will try it tonight! (Just a heads-up though…cooking time reads “15 minutes” up there under the title…threw me off a bit )
