A perfect appy for “pub or games night.” The smoked paprika adds a distinctive smoky taste to the wings.
Why I love this recipe
The coating is crunchy and so full of flavor especially is you use the smoked paprika and buttermilk
If your choose to use buttermilk - marinade the wings about 2 hrs before breading. If a cooling rack is not available line the baking pan with foil, lightly brush with oil. Place the wings on the pan; turn once or twice during the cooking time to evenly brown the wings.
Line 2 baking sheets with foil and place a cooling rack on each pan. Lightly brush the racks with oil.
Pat the wings dry with paper towel.
In a shallow bowl mix together the cheese, breadcrumbs and spices.
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs and milk of your choice. If using buttermilk reduce the eggs to 2 .
Dip each wing into the egg mixture; then into the bread crumbs, gently pressing and evenly coating. Shake off any excess.
Place on the racks, leaving a space between.
Bake in a preheated 375ºF oven for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
Time may vary depending on the size of the wings.
