I love love LOVE a good chicken wing recipe, and today my recipe for 5 ingredient baked ranch chicken wings will be your new favorite chicken wing dish!
What is it about chicken wings? They’re a tasty and familiar type of meat, but wrapped up in these delicate little packages that are just so fun to eat that I’m willing to pay the extra money for them over drumsticks. The ritual of breaking apart the wing from the drumette, of nibbling the crispy skin of the wingtip (do it people, it’s delicious). They’re just so darn good!
And I’m always on the lookout for tasty simple chicken wing recipes. Today I have one that takes just five ingredients! I know. Technically, technically speaking, it’s 8 ingredients. But if you don’t have olive oil, salt and pepper in your pantry already… click here to get started with this glorious thing we call cooking! Today I’m harnessing the powerful goodness that is the “Ranch salad dressing mix packet” and throwing it into a creamy Greek yogurt and mayonnaise based sauce. After roasting in the oven until browned and crispy, the wings then get drenched in this glorious sauce! Mmmmm!

Now it’s your turn: share with me below your all-time favorite chicken wing recipe! I’m always on the lookout for new ideas, so I would love to hear how you prepare these tasty morsels!
- 1 dozen chicken wings
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Black pepper
- ⅓ cup Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp. heavy cream
- ½ tbsp. ranch dressing mix
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil.
- Pat chicken wings dry and spread them in one layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and use tongs to unstick the chicken wings from the bottom of the baking sheet if necessary. Return baking sheet to oven and cook for 20 minutes. Turn broil to high and broil for about 3-5 minutes, until skin is crispy. Be sure to watch the chicken wings to prevent burning.
- While wings are baking, prepare sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, heavy cream, and ranch dressing mix until combined. When wings are finished cooking, transfer them to a large bowl and add sauce. Toss to coat and serve. Enjoy!
