At the request of my hubby, Salt & Vinegar Chicken Wings were on the list of things to do! He absolutely loved salt & vinegar chips (as did I!) so he asked if I would try to create a similar flavor on chicken wings.
I tried these with a big batch of chicken wings and not gonna lie, didn’t marinate them long enough to really get the vinegar flavor. There was just a back hint taste of vinegar but we really wanted to get the quiver, if you will. I made them again with just a small pack of chicken wings to see how they came out if they marinated longer and they were yum! So I definitely suggest marinating for a good 6 hours. Just pop the marinated wings in the fridge before work and they are ready to go when you get home.
They are definitely a great treat after being so used to having buffalo style or wings simply served with salt & pepper. I know my hubby is creating a list of other flavors to try! I just wish he’d get in the kitchen and give it a whirl himself — kidding! I actually love being in the kitchen 🙂 So if you like being in the kitchen as well, give these a-go if you love that salt & vinegar combo!
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except pepper) and add chicken, tossing around in mixture to coat.
- Place in fridge for at LEAST one hour to marinate - for a real salt & vinegar taste, I suggest 6 hours to really get the vinegar to settle in... (the ghee will harden up in fridge).
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Place chicken wings on wired rack settled on baking sheet - take about 1/2 cup of ACV/ghee mixture & warm to melt the ghee.
- Brush on some of the vinegar/ghee mixture. Sprinkle more salt & pepper onto chicken.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes.
