Crispy Wings in the Oven

You might be thinking that oven baked chicken wings will not be crispy. However, it is amazing how crispy they can be.

Baking wings in the oven instead of frying them is so simple and easy. They turn out delightfully crispy and tender every time. My entire family enjoys their wings and asks for them often.

Ingredients Used to Make Baked Wings

With a few simple ingredients and less than an hour baking, you will have the most scrumptious chicken ever. Here is what you will need.

Chicken Wings: Here you can use fresh wings or frozen. Often, when I purchase a fresh tray, they are already split with the tips removed and the flats and drumettes cut apart as well. However, frozen chicken wings are even faster and work perfectly fine. They will just take longer to bake in the oven as they have the thaw first. If you prefer, you can leave them whole.

Butter: I like to use salted butter in this recipe for the best flavor. However, if you prefer an oil or other butter substitute, go ahead, and use that. This recipe is pretty forgiving that way.

Spices. It just takes a few simple spices, salt, black pepper, garlic powder or onion powder if you prefer the taste, and paprika.

How to Make Baked Crispy Chicken Wings

Let’s explore how easy this recipe is. This truly is an easy chicken wings recipe. You can make this to feed just your family or a crowd. I use a half sheet baking pan, or a rimmed baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. (You can get the correct wire rack for the baking pan when you purchase both as a rack set).This allows the heat from the oven to get all around the wings. The result is a crispy, yet tender wing.

Oh, and for easy clean up, line the baking sheet with aluminum foil before you add the wire rack.

The tray will catch any excess fat that drips off the wing. If the wing sits in the fat, it will create too much moisture. Keeping the wings away from the moisture is essential in achieving a crispy exterior.

Melt the butter, in a large bowl add the spices, and toss the wings to coat them. Arrange them on the wire rack that is on the baking pan.

Bake in a pre-heated 400-degree Fahrenheit oven for 40 minutes. The wings are golden brown and fully cooked at this point.

Party Wings

Hosting a Party

This is a great tip for when you are hosting a party.

You can keep the wings on a low temperature setting in the oven for up to 1 hour as you continue preparing other food. The longer that the wings stay in the warm oven, the crispier they will get.

Depending on how many guests I have, I sometimes make 3 or 4 trays of wings. When they are done cooking, I will pile them all on two trays and place them back in the oven on warm and keep adding warm wings to the serving tray as needed.

Internal Temp of Chicken Wings

Wings are part of the chicken and the same food safety rules apply. Make sure the cook until a meat thermometer inserted reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit internal temperature.

How many chicken wings in a pound?

There are approximately 5 chicken wings per pound.

10 lbs of chicken wings feeds how many?

Therefore a 10-pound bag of wings would hold about 45 or 50 chicken wings. When serving chicken wings as an appetizer plan on around 4 to 5 wings per person. Therefore, 10 lbs. of chicken wings feeds approximately 9-10 people.

If you are serving chicken wings as the main dish, you should double or triple the amount of chicken wings per person.

Are Chicken Wings Keto?

Yes, chicken wings themselves are keto. As each wing on its own has zero grams of carbs. However, the answer is not necessarily straightforward, as there are different ways to prepare chicken wings and some methods will be more keto-friendly than others. This is a question that many people have, as chicken wings are a popular appetizer and snack. So, wings themselves are keto, but it depends on the sauce you choose and how they are made.

However, because there is no added sugar in the baked chicken recipe shown here today, this recipe is a good keto recipe.

How to Make Chicken Oven Wings

While you can dust them in a bit of flour and corn starch, you can still get crispy skin on the wings without the extra step or using a deep fryer. Once baked, keep them at a warm setting for an hour and they will be super crispy. It’s that easy.

What to Serve with Chicken Wings?

Of course, one of the best things to serve with the best wing recipe are scrumptious different sauces. You might already have a favorite dipping sauce, if not, here are a few that we love.

If you love a bit of spice, I recommend this homemade sriracha sauce.

A fresh buttermilk ranch dressing is always a hit at our house.

Honey Garlic Butter Sauce, just the perfect combination.
