Yield about 40 wings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds chicken wing sections, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • Sauce, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a wire rack over a sheet pan. Spray with nonstick spray.
  2. Use paper towels to dry the chicken wings, removing as much liquid as possible for the most crispy wings.
  3. Add the baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and pepper to a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Add the chicken wings to a large bowl and sprinkle the seasoning over the top. Stir well to coat the chicken wings.
  5. Arrange the chicken on the wire rack, skin side up,  in a single layer and bake for 20 minutes. Flip and bake for another 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and skin is crispy.
  6. Remove the wings from the oven and let set for 5 minutes before tossing with sauce or serving.

Notes

Crispy Wings: It's key to pat away as much moisture as possible. The baking powder also helps the skin crisp up, but be sure to use aluminum free baking powder or you'll be able to taste it. If you don't have aluminum free baking powder, just leave it out altogether - the wings will still be crispy, just not quite as much.

Seasonings: We kept it very basic in this recipe and we usually toss the wings in sauce or serve with a dip. Feel free to adjust the seasonings to whatever you'd like.

Air Fryer: Wings turn out great in the air fryer! Cook frozen wings at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking.
