Crispy buffalo chicken wings (baked)
The magic ingredient to crispy wings without a lot of oil is aluminium free baking powder. It may sounds unappealing, but coating chicken wings in seasoned baking powder is what makes the skin super crispy. You won’t taste it in the end results, so long as you use aluminium-free. To be clear, make sure you use baking powder, NOT baking soda, because there is a big difference!
You’re going to pimp yours up with added flavours:
-You an also add a dash of Cayenne pepper
Toss them until they are coated evenly.
how do you cook chicken wings in the oven
After your chicken wings are coated, place aluminium foil on your baking sheet to catch any drippings, then arrange a wire rack over the top. Place your wings in an even layer to allow the heat to be evenly distributed.
You’re then going to bake your chicken wings on a rack so the fat can drip off, creating ultra crispy wings all over.
how long does it take to bake chicken wings?
Chicken wings can take about 50 minutes or more to bake, flipping them halfway through cooking time to allow even crispness. Why so long? To allow the fat to render out from the chicken wings so that the skin crisps to a delicious golden brown.
how to make buffalo sauce
To get the best baked buffalo wings, you’re going to toss them in an incredible buffalo sauce, with just three ingredients!

serve buffalo wings
Serve your buffalo wings with blue cheese dip, ranch dipping sauce or a creamy garlic mayo. Don’t forget the celery and/or carrot sticks on the side! Game day has never looked so easy and so good!
