Use Moji's Chicken Wings Masala packet to prepare these finger-lickin’ wings in about an hour. Make a family-friendly version or choose to spice it up by blending with your favorite hot sauce. Anchored by Moji’s signature garam masala, Moji's Chicken Wings spice blend has savory layers of flavor without the heat of red chili. Game-time, dinnertime or anytime, there will be no leftovers!

Ingredients


Spicy

3 pounds chicken wings (drumettes and wingettes), patted dry; air-chilled is preferred.


1/2 cup of your favorite hot sauce.  Use a medium heat level hot sauce to balance well with the masala.  

Cholula Original or Frank’s RedHot Original both work well.


1 packet Moji Masala Chicken Wings Masala


Family-Friendly

3 pounds chicken wings (drumettes and wingettes), patted dry; air-chilled is preferred


1/4 cup olive oil


2 tablespoons tomato paste


3 tablespoons full-fat plain yogurt (optional)


1.5 teaspoons salt


1 packet Moji Masala Chicken Wings Masala



Directions


Marinade


Step 1  In a medium-to-large size mixing bowl blend all ingredients (wet ones first)  until well incorporated.  


Step 2  Add the chicken to the marinade in batches and coat evenly.


Baking 


Step 1  Use middle rack. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place a baking rack on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Lay wings side-by-side but not touching.  Cover loosely with a piece of foil.


Step 2  Bake for 25 minutes, then remove cover and cook for about 20-25 more minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked with a dark brown, crispy, slightly blistering coat.  You can opt to broil for the final 1-2 minutes with the oven door slightly ajar.  Make sure to closely monitor the wings while broiling to ensure they don’t dry out or burn.
