Chicken wings

Chicken wings are a classic. They can be served plain or smothered in a sauce for a tasty snack or filling lunch. Below, I’ve explained the simple way to make this delicious meal.

How to cook chicken wings

Rinse and pat dry

I always rinse my chicken after removing it from the package. Patting it dry allows the dry ingredients to stick and create a crispy skin.

Add dry ingredients

The dry ingredients are as follows:

Baking powder

This is the secret ingredient that makes a deliciously crispy skin. However, this skin is not overly crispy, as it can be if just oil is being used. Of all the methods I’ve tried, this is by far my favorite.

Salt and pepper

I used to use a lot of different spices, but just using salt and pepper is the best. It keeps it simple and allows the flavor of chicken to come through.


Put chicken pieces in a single layer on a rack on a baking sheet. Depending on how much you are making, they will probably be pretty close together. Bake for 60-70 minutes at 375° F.
