Old Bay Wings
3 pounds chicken wings, separated tips from drummettes
8 Tbsp (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter
1 Tbsp Old Bay seasoning, plus more for dusting
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Cocktail sauce for dipping
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Allow the wings to come to room temperature (or else the sauce will be more difficult to spread on them). Pat the chicken wings dry.
Melt the butter in a small pot and whisk in the Old Bay and lemon juice. Let it cool enough to feel lukewarm. Mix it again and toss the chicken wings in half the sauce. Arrange in one layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or Silpat and bake for 25 minutes.
Take the wings out of the oven and switch it to broil. Set a rack about 6 inches under the broiler. Flip the wings and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until they are nicely browned.
To serve, toss in the remaining sauce and set on a plate. Dust with more Old Bay and serve with your favorite cocktail sauce.
Yield: Serves 4-6.
