Old School Middle Eastern Recipes with Some Modern Day Twists

Baked Chicken Wings with Spicy Tahini Dipping Sauce

Baked Chicken Wings with Spicy Tahini Dipping Sauce

We are taking a break from the “Timin and Marakah” series in honor of Super Bowl snacking. This is a super easy recipe to pop in the oven while you work on other Super Bowl snacks or just want to spend more time watching the game! The hardest part is searching for all the ingredients; however, if you don’t have one of the below, it’s ok! The beauty about dry rubs is that you can always modify to your taste. Think of the below as what we love, but you can always take a stab at your own dry rub using our recipe as a guide.

That Spicy Tahini Dipping Sauce, though. It’s definitely a must have yummy treat with the wings. So, spice up your Super Bowl party with some Three Teas Sisters’ Middle Eastern flair! And BONUS this recipe is pretty much an unnoticeably healthier version of the classic chicken wings.

Not sure about my sisters, but I’m rooting for Kansas City.. I know you all were dying to know. Cheers!

Baked Chicken Wings with Spicy Tahini Dipping Sauce

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Course: Appetizer, dinner, Super Bowl
Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1.5-2 lbs party wings
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • black pepper
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp thinly sliced green onion

Wings Dry Rub

  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp bahar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp brown sugar

Spicy Tahini Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp harissa
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Combine all dry rub ingredients in a small bowl (salt, bahar, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, oregano, brown sugar) and mix together
  • In a large bowl, place wings, olive oil, and vegetable oil and combine. Make sure oil is evenly distributed on all of the wings
  • Add dry rub to wings bowl and mix until evenly coated on wings
  • Place a double layer of foil on a baking sheet. Add wings baking sheet but do not over lap them. You can also place a wire rack on top of baking sheet then place the wings on the wire rack. However, I like using just the baking sheet to help slightly char the side of the wings that are sitting on the baking sheet
  • Place wings in the oven for 40 minutes
  • While wings are cooking, toast sesame seeds. Heat a small pan on medium heat, then add sesame seeds. They cook quickly, so they only need to be on for about a minute or less
  • Thinly slice green onions for garnish
  • Once wings are done, place on serving plate and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, thinly sliced green onions, and fresh ground black pepper

Spicy Tahini Dipping Sauce

  • In a small bowl, combine greek yogurt, tahini, harissa, olive oil, and salt. You can add more harissa if you would like to up the spice level
