Grocery Store List

  • Turkey Wings—Try to find all the Turkey wings with the drums and wingtips. You can usually find them at your local butcher.
  • Butter- This will help tenderize the meat and bring in flavor.
  • Spices & Herbs: I kept the seasonings simple, but the flavor is still incredible. A little goes a long way.
  • Olive Oil- This will help get the seasonings rubbed into the wings.
  • Chicken Stock gives the spice-infused turkey wings a soul-warming taste. The drippings can also be saved for the gravy.
  • Vegetables: This is my go-to and is always a hit at family gatherings. The Turkey legs complement the crunchy peppers.

How To Make Baked Turkey Wings?

Clean, wash, and pat dry your meat. This step is crucial to ensure the seasoning adheres to the wings and helps achieve crisp skin.

In a small bowl, mix your desired seasoning blend. You can use a combination of garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, cayenne pepper, black pepper, bell peppers, butter, and kosher salt. Feel free to adjust the amounts of each spice to suit your taste preferences. Additionally, you can add some fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary for extra flavor.

Once you have seasoned the wings, place them in a baking or casserole dish, spreading them out in a single layer along with bell peppers. This allows the wings to cook evenly and ensures they become crispy. If you are making a large batch, you may need to use a large roasting pan, like I used for my smothered turkey wings.


Now, let’s talk about storage. If you have any leftover baked turkey wings, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat, place them in a preheated oven at 350° for 10-15 minutes until heated.


Yes, but I suggest letting them thaw completely.
They are naturally tough, but overcooked or undone will cause toughness.
