When was the last time I roasted chicken wings or chicken for that matter? I really cannot remember.
Last Sunday during our grocery run at Aeon, I made the impromptu decision to pick up two packets of chicken wings. I also bought this.
Back home, I washed and pat dry the chicken wings. There were 5 wings in each packet, so I had 10 wings in total. Then I separated the drumettes and wingettes. The wing tips, I saved for soup (because I don't like to waste).
To prepare the seasoning, I put some butter (those small prepacked portions of butter of 10g each. I put 2) in a bowl and let it soften. I added 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons of the chicken seasoning, 3/4 tablespoons of light soy sauce and some crushed garlic. Then I mixed the ingredients with the softened butter.
After that I added the chicken wings and used my hand to mix the wings and seasoning. I left the marinated wings in the fridge overnight.
The next day, I took the bowl out to stand to room temperature.
Then I preheated the oven at 200C and placed the chicken wings in a single layer on a lined baking tray. These were roasted for 40 minutes, I flipped the wings at half time. When the wings were done, I left them in the oven for another 5 minutes.
This Montreal Chicken Seasoning is quite good. You need to adjust the amount of seasoning because too much can be salty.
This seasoning is made from garlic, onion, salt, spices and herbs including black pepper, red pepper, parsley, paprika and green bell pepper, a very aromatic and tasty combination.
