Cajun Turkey Wings
Updated: Jan 14, 2022
Would you guys believe I learned this recipe from my aunt (may she rest in peace) when I was 13 years old, I don't remember every spice she used but I do remember seeing garlic powder, onion powder, cajun seasoning, salt, pepper & basil. Man oh' man does this bring back so many memories, she had a thing for waking up at like 11pm and making full course meals, we would cook, eat and watch "Married with Children" LOL. The good ole' days!
These turkey wings are so delicious and flavorful and are easy to make. Just remember to cover tightly when baking so that they can bake in their own juices, if you like Cajun dishes, you'll love these turkey wings.
What you'll need (serves 4-6):
3 - 3 1/2 lbs - Turkey wings cut and cleaned
1 tsp - Allspice
1 1/2 tsp - Paprika
2 tsp - Slap yo' mama Cajun Seasoning
1 tbsp - Parsley
2 tsp - Garlic Powder
2 tsp - Onion Powder
1/2 tbsp - Basil
1/2 tsp - Cayenne pepper (optional)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
1 tbsp - Olive Oil
1 cup - water
2 tbsp - Corn starch
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Thoroughly wash/clean turkey wings. Pat dry using a paper towel.
Season turkey wings using all spices listed above. Drizzle with olive oil.
Transfer turkey to an oven safe dish. Add water.
Cover with foil and transfer pan to over and bake for about 6-7 minutes.
Remove pan from oven. Spoon about half cup of the juice from the pan and pour into a small bowl, add cornstarch and whisk until cornstarch has dissolved.
Pour mixture over the turkey wings.
Cover pan with foil and return to oven. Bake for an additional hour and a half.
Remove from oven, remove foil from pan, set oven to broil and return pan to oven for an additional 5 minutes.
