How To Bake Chicken Wings


This is a great way to make chicken wings, especially for those who want to limit fat. It is also a great way to get crisp chicken wings any time.

When they are finished you can add any sauce to the wings that your little ‘ole heart desires.

These wings are delicious just as they are, with no sauce, too! Often simplicity is best in food.

The recipe below is for about 2 dozen wings. For every dozen wings you make increase oil by 1 tablespoon.

Here is what you do:

Put your oven rack in the upper middle position. Heat oven to 450 degrees.

You will need a pan with  removable rack that sits about half an inch off the bottom of the pan. The fat drips off the wings as they bake. How nice is that?

If you do not have such a rack, roast on a foil lined cookie sheet or other pan. The wings will cook in the oil but it can be done and I have done it that way on occasion.


Put wings in a large bowl and add about 2 tablespoons of oil and sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Using your hands mix it all together so that all the wings are well coated with the oil and seasonings.


Then arrangethe wings  in a single layer on the rack.


Place in the oven and roast until golden brown about 40 minutes. I check at the 30 minute mark.

When wings are golden brown remove them from the oven. Look at the golden color on those wings. Makes my mouth water just looking at them!!!


While the wings are roasting make the sauce you are using .

Coat the wings with what ever sauce you are using and then place back into the oven for 8-10 more minutes

Bon appétit!!!
