What Makes Anthony’s Coal Fired Wings So Good?

These are not fried chicken wings; instead, they are roasted in a hot oven! As a result, you have incredibly crispy and flavorful chicken. A simple marinade with garlic, rosemary, parsley, and lemon juice adds deep flavor to the inside of the meat.

These crispy baked wings are topped with a generous amount of sweet caramelized onions and fresh parsley. It’s a finishing touch that makes them extraordinary.

Why You Will Love This Recipe

You might’ve thought it’s impossible to make Anthony’s wings recipe without a pizza oven but think again! You can recreate that smoky char as long as you get your oven as hot as possible.

This recipe is impressive because you can also recreate the complex flavor of the chicken that you enjoy at the restaurant.

It all comes down to the magic of a marinade. Though these wings require a 24-hour marinade, the wait is worth it for the crispy outside and delicious inside. They are sure to please any crowd!

How To Make Anthony’s Wings

  1. Prepare the marinade by whisking all ingredients together in a large nonreactive bowl, except for the chicken wings.
  2. Place the chicken wings in a gallon-sized zip-top bag and pour marinade over them.
  3. Toss everything to coat the chicken and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  4. Heat oil in a medium-sized sauté pan over medium heat to make the caramelized onions.
  5. Add the onions along with some salt and pepper.
  6. Cook them on medium-low heat for around 30 minutes or until they turn deep golden brown.
  7. Set the onions aside to cool.
  8. For the wings, preheat your oven to 500°F.
  9. Take the wings out of the marinade and place them in a single layer on a sheet pan.
  10. Bake them for 12 minutes, flip them over, and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

What To Serve With Coal Fired Wings

If you want to enjoy these wings just like at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, serve them with freshly baked focaccia bread.

Or, pair these delicious wings with other dishes such as Caesar salad, onion rings, or Margherita pizza to make it a meal. Since the wings are garlicky, they taste incredible with alfredo pizza with white sauce instead of Italian tomato sauce.

How To Store Leftover Copycat Anthony’s Wings

Although you can use a gallon-sized bag to store these, I recommend using a sealed container so they don’t all pile onto each other as much.

Using an airtight container instead of a bag also keeps food fresh longer because you don’t have to worry about the seal accidentally opening! Keep them in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or the freezer for up to 6 months.

What’s The Best Way To Reheat The Coal Fired Wings?

For the best possible outcome, reheat these wings in the oven! You can pull them out of the refrigerator 10-15 minutes before cooking, while you preheat your oven to 375°F.

This helps the wings reach room temperature. Place chicken wings on a baking sheet or in a baking dish and spread them out. Heat the wood fired wings for 5 minutes, flip them, then cook them five minutes longer. From there, you can determine if they need a few minutes longer. The internal temp should be 165°F.

      Yes, it allowed for a chicken that is most commonly purchased that has a solution added to it for flavor. You may be able to find some air-chilled chicken that could reduce that sodium.

    Perfect recipe. Our family loves Anthony’s Coal Fired pizza and wings, and since my son has a wood-fired pizza oven in the backyard, we tried this recipe. They turned out great. Baked them for 10 minutes, turned them over, and another 15 minutes and they were done. Also did a pound of drumsticks… We measured the temp and pulled them at 200 deg, but put them back in to get a bit crispier for a few minutes. Baked them in a large cast iron skillet.

    We made these last weekend and they are SO good. I followed the recipe exactly but they did come out tasting a little salty. We used the oven and cooked them for probably around 30 minutes to get to our chosen doneness. I think I may give them a bit of a flame kiss on the grill the next time we make these to enhance that char flavor.

    I have never left a comment on a recipe or online… i just search make and move on… but this… this recipe is by far the BEST recipe I have found… I made these and they were better than Anthony’s! It’s quickly being added to a weekly rotation!!

    These were perfection! I baked 2 trays on parchment paper at 450 degrees for 30 minutes.
    Switched the trays halfway through. Already thinking of other ways to use marinade…boneless chicken thighs? Thank you for the recipe!

    Absolutely delicious! These wings are AMAZING! I have another load marinating right now for dinner tonight! Super easy to make! The only changes I made was that I caramelize the onions while the wings are in the oven and I bake the wings longer, so they’re well done. I can’t wait to have them again tonight!

  6. Marianne

    These wings were delicious, and tasted so much like Anthony’s wings! After I baked them I put them on the grill to get charred. My family LOVED them and couldn’t believe how authentic they tasted! Thank you!!!

    Wings were spot on, but your nutritional info has to be way off. No way there are 42 grams of carbs in this recipe. 1 whole onion has 10g and wings have 0.

    These wings are very tasty but there is no going around something about the way they are cooked makes a difference. Missing that wood-fired taste.

  9. Danielle

    OMG these taste IDENTICAL! Thank you sooo much! Only thing I would suggest as I had no idea since this is my first time but advising to break the joint out. (I’ve never shopped for wings before this). I threw mine on the grill after because I’m a picky one but when husband doesn’t think other things are possible unless you go to a restaurant, thank you because you nailed it !!!
