How To Roast Turkey Wings

It’s Fall! So that means it’s time to start turkey dinner planning! If you don’t want to make a whole turkey you can find instructions about how to roast turkey wings!

 

It’s my favorite time of the year! I have always loved Fall but I have experienced it in 2 different ways. Last year we moved back from Kentucky to Florida. 

Fall in Kentucky is the typical version of Fall. You have leaves changing colors, the air is getting cooler, you go to pumpkin patches and Fall festivals and you can actually wear jeans and a hoodie. It’s really a beautiful season in Kentucky. 

 

 

Then you have Fall in Florida…that’s a completely different experience. Do not even try to break out the hoodies til at least Thanksgiving. And there aren’t really any fall festivals to go to that are growing apples and have a corn maze. And if you wear jeans or a hoodie you will probably pass out from heat exhaustion. 

 

 

 

But Fall is also amazing in Florida because it’s the best time to be a tourist in this state. The humidity is lower – so you don’t break into a sweat as soon as you walk outside. 

October is the best time to go to the beach. It’s not crowded at all and the temperature is perfect! You can sit on your porch in the morning and evening and feel just a tiny bit of coolness in the air. The water is still warm but it doesn’t feel like you are in hot bathwater. 

It’s also the best time to go to the theme parks – and we have plenty of them! Have you ever been to Disney in the Fall and enjoyed the turkey legs!?

So no matter what version of Fall you prefer – Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. That means it’s time to start planning for holiday dinners.

Some people don’t like to cook a whole bird – so they will serve ham or a prime rib dinner. Or sometimes you want just a little turkey on the dinner table so you can add these roasted turkey wings to your dinner menu. This is a slow roast recipe that your whole family will love!

The juicy turkey wings will be just what you need to get into the Fall Spirit! And it takes less time than a whole turkey.

Our favorite turkey part is the white meat from the turkey breast and we love to make homemade gravy with the pan drippings. But I could see this as a great Sunday Dinner when you don’t want to make a huge dinner or just want dark meat.

Our favorite turkey recipe is just some salt and pepper on the bird and add some pats of butter on the skin. But I love the spice combination of this recipe to add some flavors to a Thanksgiving meal!

This recipe for baked turkey wings is a really easy recipe! You just throw some spices together and cover them with broth and foil. Bake them and serve with your Thanksgiving or Christmas feast!

Notes:

If the turkey pieces are not cut you will need to cut them into 3 pieces. You will have the wing, drumettes, and the wingtips. Discard the turkey wing tips.

This recipe calls for smoked paprika. It has become my new favorite spice! It adds so much flavor! It’s what makes the dry rub recipe for my taco recipe so delicious! 

You will need chicken stock to add to the roasting pan. I use chicken bullion + 1 cup water. You only want to fill the pan about halfway. So depending on the size pan you use, you may need 1-2 cups. 

About halfway through the cooking time, you can baste the wings like you do when you cook a whole turkey. 

I don’t use black pepper in the seasoning mix – I like for people to add their own pepper.

You could use a dutch oven or casserole dish if you can fit all the pieces in the pan.

How To Roast Turkey Wings 

  • 3 pounds of turkey wings & drumettes (see notes about cutting into sections.) 
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder, garlic powder, and smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced onions
  • 1-2 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

 

Instructions for turkey wings & drumettes recipe :

Preheat your oven to 350* degrees Fahrenheit. Pat wings dry with a paper towel.

 

 

Pour the olive oil into the bottom of the pan. You can use an 11×7 or 9×13 baking dish. Place turkey wings and drumettes into the pan and mix them all around so that the wings are coated in the oil.

In a small bowl mix together the spices. 

Sprinkle half the seasoning on the wings and mix it around. Add the remaining spices to the wings and mix a little more. Make sure they are in a single layer.

 

 

Pour enough broth into the pan until the wings are covered halfway. 

 

 

Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated oven for 2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165* when you check with a meat thermometer.

If you want a crispy skin you can remove the foil and turn on the broiler to high heat and broil for a few minutes to brown turkey wings – It’s a good idea to watch it because it can crips up fast!

 

Serve with your favorite turkey side dishes like stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, gravy and more!
