Salt & Vinegar Chicken Wings


Tangy and Tasty Party Time!

Salt & Vinegar Chicken Wings

As soon as I hear ‘chicken wings’, I think it must be a celebration. A graduation party, a game-day get-together, a picnic, a tailgating party, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, or a birthday. Wait. That doesn’t cover Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day!

One of the first dishes I ever made for a crowd was a chicken recipe for a graduation party. This recipe, with its dry rub and vinegar tang, takes me right back there. You can make a little or a lot. This recipe is easy to double, triple, or quadruple. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Serve it with cool and crunchy celery, and a variety of dips, such as this Easy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce. It’ll be the one dish talked about when your guests fondly remember your celebration. Unless they are too busy asking you for this Healthy broccoli Apple Salad with Greek Yogurt! These two dishes were made for each other. One is tangy and a little bit decadent, while the other is cool, creamy, and a little crunchy!

You’re going to love the crispiness of the skin, and the unforgettable tang of the vinegar with the seasoning. If you’ve ever experienced fair fries with vinegar or fish-n-chips British style, you get the idea. This recipe is super simple, and all you’ll likely need to purchase is the chicken, as the remaining few ingredients are pantry staples. It’s interesting that you’ll toss the wings in vinegar and salt after baking them. This ensures the tang is there to stay.

If you’d like a selection of finger foods for your soirée, try these Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers or these Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites.

Are Chicken wings Healthy?

These wings are high in protein, and baking is healthier than frying chicken. These are easily made in small portions, simply by the size of the wings you purchase. As part of a spread with a wide variety of offerings, it’s going to be big on taste and tang while not overwhelming the dinner plate with anything too unhealthy. It’s a fun food, and we all need a little of the fun food here and there. The vinegar is absolutely healthy, containing plenty of acetic acid, which may help with blood sugar management. Tossing it with chicken seems more appealing than tossing it down straight!

Is using Foil Necessary?

Focus- Lining the baking dish with foil is one method for ensuring the crispy texture you’re looking for. It also makes for super easy transporting and clean up. If you don’t like to use aluminum foil in cooking, just be sure your pan is well-coated with cooking spray.

It’s possible to toss the wings with a pinch to a teaspoon of cornstarch and baking powder each to add more crispiness but experiment to see what works best for you. This recipe is so simple, no need to complicate it.


  • 2 lbs fresh chicken wings (approx 20 wings and drums)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons white distilled vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons seafood seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

FAQs & Tips

How to Make Ahead and Store?

This is best made the day of. If you have it ready early, it’s fine to keep hot in a low oven (160-200 degrees F). In the unlikely event you have leftovers, it can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days and reheated in the oven or air fryer. If it’s going to be longer than 2-3 days, it needs to go into the freezer.

Are other types of vinegar suitable to use?

Apple Cider Vinegar, balsamic, and wine vinegars may be a little overwhelming for this. They may contain sediments that won’t be as aesthetically pleasing. An infused white vinegar can add depth to the flavor, though. Try a pear-infused vinegar, or one with berry undertones.

Can these be transported for a potluck?

These could be made and kept hot in a roasting pan to take for a potluck.

Serving Suggestions

These wings are an easy item to pop into the oven for a week night dinner. They can crisp up while you’re preparing Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Instant Pot Green Beans. They’d make a substantial appetizer course if you have friends in for a casual weekend get-together. Serve them along with this Mexican Grilled Corn Salad With Jalapeno and Avocado and you’re done. They’ll taste like you fussed, and maybe you did, if you chose the infused vinegar! These are sure to become the dish you think of when you think, “What can I fix that is worthy of a celebration, and yet I can prepare with minimal effort?”
