  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 1h 40m

Makes 4 servings

Serve these pungent wings whole as a main course. Or, to offer as an appetizer, remove tips and cut wings in half at the joint so they can be easily handled and eaten as a finger food.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup liquid smoke
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 16 chicken wings (about 3 pounds)


In a medium mixing bowl, combine the water, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, parsley flakes, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag and turn to coat the chicken.

Marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning bag once. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Place the chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet or shallow baking pan. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 30-35 minutes, or till chicken is tender and no longer pink.
