  4. Place the wings in a large bowl and sprinkle with the spice mixture. Toss to completely coat the wings.

  • Make clean up a breeze by lining the baking sheet with foil.
  • To ensure super crispy wings, place wings on a cooling rack in the baking sheet.
  • Don’t make the mistake of using baking soda instead of baking powder. When the baking powder is mixed with salt, it dries out the chicken skin as it bakes making for crispy and crunchy wings.
  • This wing recipe takes a little patience while they bake. Be sure to flip them so they are crispy on all sides.
  • Increasing the oven temperature for the last 20 to 25 minutes of baking gives the wings a last blast of heat. They will be golden brown and delicious.
