It takes less time and effort from start to finish. Grab the best baked balsamic pepper fig chicken wings you’ve ever tried in the recipe section below.

2. Prepare the chicken wing, if you bought them whole (like I did). Cut through the joint of the wing and remove the wing tip. Then cut through the second joint to separate the wing into the forearm and upper arm portions.
3. Mix dry ingredients into a large bowl.
4. Dry your chicken wings a bit using paper towels (this will help the dry ingredients better stick to the chicken).
5. Toss in the chicken wings until well coated with the dry ingredients.
6. Spread evenly over a baking sheet.
7. Spray with cooking spray.
8. Bake for 40 minutes. Turning once or twice as needed until browned and crispy.
9. Once baked remove from the oven and toss in a large bowl with the balsamic pepper fig spread.
Make sure you coat every piece of chicken very well.
