  3. Place the chicken wings into a large bowl and coat evenly with seasoning, extra virgin olive oil, and hot sauce.

  5. Arrange chicken wings on a large baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper.
  6. Place chicken on the center rack in the preheated oven and cook for 40 to 45-minutes.
  7. Remove the chicken wings from the oven and allow them to rest for 15 minutes.
