Voodoo Chicken Recipe


  • 2 pounds of chicken wings, separated into flats and drumettes
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Preheat your oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease it to prevent sticking.

2. Combine paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a small bowl. Mix well to create the Voodoo seasoning.

3. Put the chicken wings in a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the wings, ensuring an even coating.

4. Sprinkle the Voodoo seasoning over the wings, tossing them to coat thoroughly. Consider marinating the wings and placing them in the refrigerator for 1 hour for a more intense flavor. (optional)

4. Lay out the seasoned wings on the baking sheet and arrange them in a single layer, leaving space between each piece.

5. Bake the chicken wings in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until crispy. Turn the wings halfway through cooking for even browning.

6. Once cooked, let the wings cool for a few minutes. Serve them hot as a delightful appetizer or as a main course alongside your preferred dipping sauce. Enjoy your homemade Voodoo Chicken wings!

Note that this versatile Voodoo Chicken recipe isn't limited to wings alone – you can also use chicken drumsticks, breasts, and thighs for a delicious twist.
