For the Turkey Wings

  • 3 lbs Turkey wings (cut into wings and wingettes and tips removed) Fresh or previously frozen and thawed
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 2 Tsp chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 onion large onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or other neutral cooking oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes or to taste
  • 1/4 cup parsley finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper (optional) diced - I used Green Red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup celery stalk diced

For the flour mixture (Gravy)

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper or to taste


  • Clean the turkey wings and dry with a paper towel
  • Season with black pepper, paprika, salt, Minced garlic, chicken bouillon, and red pepper flakes. Add the oil and massage the wings thoroughly with the seasoning.
  • Arrange the wings in a deep baking dish.
  • Spread the Onions, bell peppers, and celery over the wings and set aside.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the gravy. Mix till all the flour is completely dissolved
  • Pour inside the baking pan. Avoid washing away all the seasoning.
  • Cover with a foil paper and bake at 400°F for 1 hour. After one hour, remove the foil paper and bake uncovered for another 20 to 30 minutes or until the meat is tender and starting to pull away from the bone.
  • Serve over white rice or mashed potatoes.


  • I divided the wings into wingettes and Drummettes. Just a personal preference. You may choose not to divide it if you don't want to.
  • As always, there are variations that you can make to this recipe. To begin with, you can omit the bell peppers and replace with Carrots or mushrooms.
  • This recipe is for 3 lbs wings if you are cooking for more people, simply double or triple the recipe. Likewise, you may divide the recipe if cooking for a lesser group of people.
  • If you like more gravy, feel free to double the recipe of the flour mixture.
