Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

What if I told you there was a way to make chicken wings that are super crispy, yet not deep fried?  Would you believe me??

Chicken wings are one infamous for being deep fried and smothered in wing sauce. If there isn’t a batch of wings being fried at a football game or a sports bar during the big game then something is wrong. What better way to enjoy your favorite football team than by eating some hot wings?

These chicken wings are SO crispy and very addictive. There really isn’t anything to ’em! All you need is a little bit of time and you got yourself a batch of restaurant style chicken wings! I found this fantastic recipe from a fellow blogger, Joanne of Fifteen Spatulas.


  • 2lbs chicken wings (any type of pieces)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • *optional* 2 tbsp Franks Wing Sauce
  • *optional* 1/2 tbsp butter, melted


1) Preheat oven to 450F and bring a large pot of water to a boil.

2) Add salt and chicken wings to boiling water and cook for 8 minutes. After, remove from hot water and let dry on a baking rack or dab with a paper towel.

3) When the chicken wings are dry, place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 27 minutes (25-30 min). Flip wings over and then bake for an additional 5 minutes.

4) While the wings are at the last baking stage, in a small saucepan or in the microwave mix the butter and wing sauce together.

5) When the wings are done, transfer to a large bowl, top with wing sauce and mix together so the wings are evenly coated. * I like to eat my wings plain or with a little hot sauce, I do not have a high threshold for spicy foods.
