Crispy Baked Chicken Wings Recipe

This is a great recipe that my friend Jana turned me on to.  I located it at and made some adjustments.  The recipe yields 2-4 servings.


  • 2 lbs. chicken wing pieces
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Heat up a big pot of boiling water.  Season the water like you would for cooking pasta (taste the water, it should taste a little repulsively salty, like sea water).
  3. Boil the chicken wings for 7-8 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack so the excess water can drain off.  Let them drip dry a little bit, then dry them well with a paper towel.
  4. Place the chicken wings directly on a sheet pan.  (I use parchment paper on the pan.) Bake the chicken wings for 25-30 minutes on one side, then flip the wings and bake for another 5 minutes on the other side.  The wings should have crispy crackly golden skin on the side that was in contact with the sheet pan.

Options:  I mix ranch dressing and wing sauce to dip my wings in.  I also made these with parmesan cheese.  I put the parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder into my food processor and then just rolled my wings in the mix before baking.  D’lish!
