Game Day Wings

Just in time for Super Bowl parties!

These zippy wings are first marinated in a lemon juice mixture overnight, then baked and glazed to perfection with a horseradish/Russian dressing sauce infused with bacon. Now, what can be better?

Best Wings EVER!!

The amount of horseradish you put in is up to you--if you like it really notched up, then add more, if you prefer less zing, then use less!  I make my sauce relatively "medium," so my advice is unless you like it piquant, start out with LESS horseradish than I use; you can always add more.  Half of the sauce is used to baste, the other half for dipping.

For extra crunch, you can put the wings under the broiler for a few minutes if you wish.

Game Day Wings

  • 4 lbs chicken wings, disjointed & wing tip removed


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Basting Sauce/Dip:

  • 16 oz Russian dressing
  • 1/4 cup white horseradish (not the one with beet juice)
  • 6 strips of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled finely

Mix marinade ingredients in a small bowl.  

Place wings in a 2-gallon (the largest size) zipper-seal bag.  Pour marinade over wings, seal bag and invert bag a few times to coat wings.  Place in refrigerator overnight.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare basting sauce by mixing all ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Reserve 1/2 of this sauce for dipping.

Line 2 large baking sheets (such as jelly roll pans) with foil.  Place a rack on the baking sheet and arrange wings in a single layer on rack.  If you have a Misto, you can spray lightly with oil at this time if you wish.

Bake wings for 45-50 minutes or until almost done and just beginning to brown.  Baste wings well with the basting sauce.  Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until nicely browned and glaze is caramelized.  If you wish additional browning, place under the broiler for about 5 minutes.

Serve with reserved sauce and some arugula and scallions.
