Basic Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

Want to make perfectly crispy chicken wings baked in the oven? If you don't love chicken wings then you probably did not have the right sauce. This fairly easy method includes them plain and we've included a few recipes that will have them finger-licking-good! Everyone will love them!




Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 pounds of chicken wings

  • 1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Instructions:

  1. Place a wire rack onto a baking sheet. Use paper towels to pat chicken wings as dry as possible and place them into a large mixing bowl.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together baking powder, salt, pepper, and paprika (and any additional flavor additions you'd like to use). Sprinkle over chicken wings and toss until wings are evenly coated.

  3. Place wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate uncovered overnight, 12 to 24 hours.

  4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Take wings directly from the refrigerator and roast in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, until crispy and brown and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Cooking time will vary based on the size of your chicken wings.

  5. Serve plain hot, or use desired flavor sauces and variations.
