Tips For Super Crispy, Baked Chicken Wings

There are a couple of tricks to getting chicken wings really delicious and crispy in the oven. One is to make sure that your oven is good and hot, we’re talking about 475 degrees for this recipe. Don’t be afraid to crank your oven up that high, just make sure you don’t have any big spills in your oven that will smoke up on you.

Another tip to getting making sure your wings bake up crispy is to get them really dry before putting them in the oven. So for this recipe, after the chicken wings come out of the marinade you’re going to want to dry them really well with paper towels before roasting them in the oven.

What Can I Serve These Chicken Wings With?

If you’re serving these wings for appetizers, just grab some Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing for dipping and maybe some carrot sticks and you’ll be all set. But if you want to serve this easy chicken recipe for dinner then here are a few suggestions!

  • 5 pounds chicken wings
