Crispy Chicken Wings Recipe

These crispy chicken wings are perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a game day, a party, or a family dinner. They’re easy to make and sure to be a hit with everyone!


  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder (not baking soda)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Optional: your favorite wing sauce (buffalo, BBQ, teriyaki, etc.)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. This will allow the heat to circulate around the wings, making them extra crispy.
  2. Prepare the Chicken Wings:
    Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. Removing excess moisture is crucial for achieving crispiness.
  3. Coat the Wings:
    In a large bowl, combine the baking powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Add the chicken wings to the bowl and toss them until they’re evenly coated with the seasoning mixture.
  4. Arrange on Rack:
    Place the seasoned wings on the wire rack in a single layer. Ensure they are not touching each other to allow even cooking.
  5. Bake the Wings:
    Bake the wings in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, increase the oven temperature to 450°F (230°C) and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the wings are golden brown and crispy. Flip the wings halfway through the cooking time to ensure even crispiness.
  6. Serve:
    Remove the wings from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. If desired, toss the wings in your favorite sauce before serving.
  7. Enjoy:
    Serve the crispy chicken wings hot, with celery sticks and blue cheese or ranch dressing on the side for dipping.

Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your taste or try different sauces to add variety to your crispy chicken wings. Enjoy your delicious homemade wings!
