1/4 cup olive oil
5 large garlic cloves, minced
6 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 tablespoons dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice


1 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup red wine or cranberry juice

2. Combine all remaining wing ingredients in small bowl. Pour into bag with chicken; squish bag to coat drummettes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.

3. Line large rimmed baking sheet with foil; top with wire rack. Spray rack with cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; discard any remaining marinade. Place chicken on rack; bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is no longer pink, turning once.
