Taco Chicken Wings

Super simple alternative to Buffalo Wings – these are loaded with taco flavor!
1 C ranch salad dressing (homemade or purchased)
1 (4.5-oz) can chopped green chiles
1/2 C flour (use rice flour for gluten free)
1 (1-oz) pkg taco seasoning mix (or 2 T homemade mix)
2 tsp canola oil
24 chicken drummettes or chicken wings (about 2 lb)
Dried parsley flakes

Heat oven to 350*F.  Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.  Combine salad dressing and chiles in blender; cover and blend until smooth.  Spoon into small serving bowl. Refrigerate while making drummettes.  In shallow dish, combine flour and taco seasoning mix; mix well.  Stir in oil with fork until well blended.  Coat drummettes with flour mixture.  Coat drummettes again to use up flour mixture.  Place on prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Turn drummettes; bake an additional 14 to 17 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear. (temperature should be 165* or higher) Sprinkle parsley flakes on salad dressing mixture; serve as dip with warm drummettes.
