Extra Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

by victor

A big pile of crispy baked chicken wing on white parchment paper.

This is by far the best recipe for baked chicken wings that I’ve ever tried. After many experiments I finally was able to make my baked chicken wings extra crispy on the outside and very tender and most on the inside. They taste just like deep-fried wings, only without the oily mess and added calories. Actually, they taste better than deep-fried. Try them, you’ll know what I am talking about.

What makes a chicken wing taste great?

Extra crispy skin and moist, tender interior is the holy grail of chicken wings. That’s the reason why deep-fried Buffalo chicken wings are so widely popular. No other chicken wing recipe is as cloned and copied as the original Buffalo wing recipe.

I am big fan of Buffalo chicken wings and visit Duff’s Famous Wings or Anchor Bar a couple of times a year when I visit Buffalo. In an effort to replicate the famous wings at home I deep-fried chicken wings and used the original sauce. They came out perfect, just like at the restaurant, but the pain of dealing with hot oil, smell and the resulting mess was a big turn off.

Options for making the best crispy chicken wings

I knew the solution would be baked chicken wings. What I needed to find was a way to bake them such that they would come out just as crispy as deep-fried. I figured out how to bake amazingly flavorful and crispy enough chicken wings, I posted about it in my How to Bake Chicken Wings post, but they are not like deep-fried.

I experimented with different temperatures, convection, with and without oil, but couldn’t get what I wanted. The solution was prompted by Serious Eat’s The Food Lab: In Search of the Best Oven-Fried Buffalo Wings article. Similar approach is used in the Cook’s Country Oven-Fried Chicken Wings recipe.

What the recipes in the above links suggest is tossing wings in baking powder to help with browning and crisping up the skin. Then baking for 30 minutes at 250F, followed by 40 minutes at 400F. Using baking powder was genius. It really does help.

While I generally liked the results I had a couple of issues. One issue was that the wings would come out a tad too dry inside. Another issue was the crispness – the wings weren’t quite as crispy as deep-fried. Finally, I could not stand the length of baking. Seriously, over an hour to bake a couple of dozen wings?

What worked to get extra crispy baked chicken wings

To make a long story short, after a few experiments, I did the following:

  1. Baking powder stayed. It helps a lot with getting a nicely browned, crispy skin.
  2. Dry chicken wings with a paper towel before tossing in baking powder.
  3. Stopped salting the wings before baking. Salt draws out moisture and prevents crisping and browning.
  4. Bumped the baking temperature to 425F convection. High temperature significantly helped reduce baking time. Convection did it’s magic with crisping up the skin and quickly removing moisture from the skin.

After tossing chicken wings in baking powder (1 tablespoon per 2 pounds of wings) and baking for only 30 minutes at 425F convection I got these beautifully crisp chicken wings:

Another time I baked them for 40 minutes. I liked the result better. These baked chicken wings had a thicker crust and more crispiness. Here is a picture of a wing baked at 425F convection for 40 minutes:

The interior of the wings was still tender and really moist and juicy.

Serving crispy chicken wings

To serve, toss the wings with your favorite Buffalo wing sauce. In the picture below I am using the famous 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce and a couple of minced garlic cloves. I also add 2 teaspoons of salt as I do not salt before baking. While I like wings with this sauce, they do taste a bit too rich for my taste.

My favorite sauce is the Duff’s Hot Sauce with a little bit of melted butter. About 1 tablespoon of melted butter per 1/3 cup of Duff’s wing sauce, plus 1 teaspoon of salt. That’s enough for 2 dozen wings.

Duffs hot sauce.

Or just a little bit (2-3 tablespoons) of plain Duff’s hot sauce and some salt, like this:

After tossing baked chicken wings in sauce or sauce and butter mix they will become less crispy. If you want optimal crispiness serve them with a wing sauce on the side.

Tips and tricks

  • I stopped using a cooling rack as it’s a major pain in the back to clean it afterwards. I now bake directly on the baking sheet lined with foil and parchment paper. The difference is barely noticeable. The bottoms come out a little greasier, but also crispier due to contact with a hot baking sheet.

  • Every now and again I see an email or a comment on social media that the recipe did not work and that the wings tasted like crap because of the baking soda. Dah! DO NOT USE BAKING SODA! It’s not the same and can’t be used as a substitute in this recipe. The recipe calls for BAKING POWDER!
  • This is a tested recipe and it works exceptionally well. I’ve made it at least 2 dozen times with great results. As was mentioned above, this recipe uses a modified version of the approach proposed by The Food Lab: In Search of the Best Oven-Fried Buffalo Wings article. A similar approach is used in the Cook’s Country Oven-Fried Chicken Wings recipe, which also uses baking powder.
  • I’ve tried making these extra crispy chicken wings in an air fryer and they turned out absolutely amazing. If you have one, definitely give that recipe a try.
  • Don’t forget the try these crunchy air fryer French fries as an accompaniment to the wings, they go exceptionally well together.
  • Letting the wings sit for 5 minutes before tossing in sauce will help preserve most of the skin crispiness.
  • Try tossing wings in a 50/50 mix of hot wing sauce and BBQ sauce, my new favorite.

Author: Victor

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs chicken wings (tips removed, separated into wingettes and drumettes)
  • 1 Tbsp BAKING POWDER (whatever you do, do NOT use baking soda)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1/3 cup hot wing sauce (e.g. Duff's hot sauce)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Dry chicken with a paper towel really well. Place the wings in a large bowl. Sprinkle baking powder over the wings. Toss until all wings are evenly covered in baking powder. Better yet, mix by hand to ensure even coverage.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a cooling rack (see note) on top and spray with Pam or rub with cooking oil to prevent sticking.
  • Lay the chicken wings on the rack, leaving space between the wings.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven. Turn the heat down to 425F and set the mode to convection.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the wings are nicely browned and crisp.
  • Let the wings rest for 5 minutes. This will preserve crispiness of the skin.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the Buffalo wing sauce by combining the butter and the hot wing sauce in a small bowl.
  • Season the wings with salt and whatever other seasonings you like. Toss with the Buffalo sauce or serve with the sauce on the side.

Notes

While a cooling rack helps with getting the melted chicken drain off the wings, it's a major pain getting it cleaned afterwards. I stopped using a cooling rack and bake the wings on parchement paper. I don't notice much difference, if any.

Hi , This was the first time i made wings , I usually check out many recipes before i choose which one to follow . I read the whole recipe and the tips , and the negative comments but i still decided to go with this recipe and i’m so glad i did , i used a mixture of rice flour and baking powder and 5 minutes after resting time i sprinkled salt and then brushed the wings with the spicy sauce mix ,
, The wings looked just like the picture above my 6 year old was so excited to try one that i forgot to take pictures and my husband couldn’t believe these wings were oven baked !!! Omg these were so crispy , so juicy and so delicious !!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for this fabulous recipe !!!!!!

I made this recipe (with baking powder) after seeing so many good reviews, but found it salty, very salty. I might add that I coated the wings with Frank’s buffalo sauce mixed with Irish butter,which I know is salted, but this is what I allways coat my wings in, and I’ve never had this problem before.

Reply
victor October 11, 2019 - 4:48 pm

Interesting. But I am quite certain that the cooking method in this recipe doesn’t make the wings any saltier. The saltiness comes from the salt you add and the salted butter in your case. Simply put less salt next time or use unsalted butter. I like one tsp of salt per 2 lbs of wings, it gives me perfect saltiness and I like my food not too salty. You can always add some more and toss again. Enjoy the recipe!

I’ve made this recipe many times with great success. Tasty, crispy. I’ve always placed the wings on a rack over a sheet pan.

Yesterday, I made the wings by placing them directly on a sheet of parchment paper on a sheet pan. The top was indeed crispy. The bottoms were soggy. Not good.

I recommend making them only on a rack to get them to be crispy all around.

victor September 30, 2019 - 10:32 am

Hi Stan, thanks for the feedback which I am sure many will find helpful. That said, my experience has been different. If you look at the picture of the wings on parchment paper in my post, the wings are dry and no grease is visible on the bottom that would make the wings soggy. I suspect it has to do with the wings themselves. Some wings have thicker, yellow skin that has a thicker fat layer. Those will need to be racked for sure. Wings with thin, bluish skin will be fine on parchment.

Stan Lap September 30, 2019 - 10:35 am

Victor, indeed the wings I bought had plenty of fat. I’ll continue to make them on the rack. Thanks for your reply.

victor September 30, 2019 - 10:40 am

You are very welcome. There is nothing wrong making these wings on a rack other than it’s a pain in the back to wash. But if you have the space and the time, just drop it right away in hot soapy water for a few hours and all stuck bits will come right off.

Leonard September 18, 2019 - 10:31 pm

I made these a couple of weeks ago. They were awesome!!! Much better than WingStop. I cooked them for 40 mins on convection. I haven’t had any issues with them being soggy while being cooked on the parchment paper. If you want to keep your wings crispy,…just slowly add the sauce to lightly coat them instead of drenching them. I honestly like mine better that way. I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Wing Sauce and Hickory & Brown Sugar Sauce as my two sauces. So tonight, I cooked 8 lbs of wings. They for sure won’t last past tomorrow.

Reply
victor September 19, 2019 - 7:39 am

Agreed. I also add less sauce. Also, if you let the wings rest for 5 minutes before adding the sauce they will remain crispier.

I like your recipe…but I don’t like Duff’s! I’ve never found them “crispy”. Always too saucy and sloppy. The original Frank and Teresa’s were beautifully crispy but even their recipe has changed.

Maybe that’s because I always ask for the sauce on the side. But homemade are always best as you can tailor the recipe to your taste.

I prepared these for my Masonic Lodge. The guys ate the all! I didn’t have a convection oven but did use nonstick spray on racks which I placed on aluminum foiled covered trays. I baked 4 large trays. I served hot sauce, BBQ sauce, and Ranch dressing on the side because of such diverse tastes our guys have. Thanks for this recipe which I will use again and again!

Jewel Johnson June 13, 2019 - 10:44 pm

I make something similar – I add seasonings (garlic powder, smoked paprika, and a little pepper and flavored salt – usually ghost pepper salt). To avoid an off taste from the baking powder, I have found using aluminum free is all you need to do.

Reply
Linda Abernathy June 12, 2019 - 3:32 pm

Do you think baking them in a convection oven made them crispier or do you think the oven will crisp them also? I will definitely try them but if they aren’t crispy in my oven, no one will eat them! LOL

Reply
William June 12, 2019 - 2:18 pm

To avoid the “off taste” from baking powder, mix it with kosher salt. One part baking powder, 2 parts salt. Let the wings sit uncovered in the fridge for up to 3 hours. This will dehydrate the skin and dry brine the meat and prevent that soggyness. Check out the article on serious eats about dry brining

Victor, Have you ever baked these ahead and reheated? Did they stay crispy and juicy? My daughter wants a chicken wing bar for her grad party and I’m trying to figure out how to make a large quantity of wings ahead that I can just reheat in the oven, toss with a sauce and keep warm in a chafing dish. Thanks.

Reply
victor May 14, 2019 - 8:14 pm

Genie,

I’ve baked these wings and reheated but they weren’t quite the same as fresh ones. I find that the best way to reheat is to use a toaster oven, a convection oven or an air fryer. Since these wings bake relatively quickly I wonder if you are going to benefit much from baking ahead and reheating. Also, on convection you can get away with baking two large (16″x21″) trays worth of wings at the same time and get great results. I would bump the heat up by 25 degrees.

In the recipe for baked chicken wings, it lists butter. Where does this come in?

Hi JoAnn, the butter is mixed with the hot wing sauce to make what is generally known as the Buffalo wing sauce. I described it in detail in the body of the post. You can vary the ratio of butter to your taste.

I have to say I was a little skeptical of these wings but thought I’d give them a whirl. All I have to say is… OMG!!! These wings are the bomb and I’m completely converted. I wanted an easy clean up so opted for the parchment version and was not disappointed. The wings were crispy and not greasy, even after tossing them in hot sauce they didn’t sog up like deep fried ones do. My husband who decided prior that they wouldn’t be as good as deep fried has quickly changed his tune. Thank you for sharing this recipe, these will now be our go to wings 😋

Josh March 31, 2019 - 10:20 am

When you were using the cooling rack to cook, were you spraying the rack with non stick spray? Maybe that would help with the cleaning afterwards. Just wondering, about to try this method myself today. Will come back to let you know how it went.

Reply
victor March 31, 2019 - 11:22 am

Josh, I used olive oil to ‘grease’ the rack and still had a lot of sticking. The wings come off mostly fine but the rack gets pretty dirty with all the little bits and pieces that get stuck to it. Need to soak then wash.

Machelle March 10, 2019 - 5:53 pm

Perfection! My husband is a wing connoisseur and he gave these a 10 out of 10. Great recipe. We dont have convection oven ,so I did turn and flip wings at 20 minutes and again at 30. At 45 minutes they were perfectly done. Let them rest before adding sauce, some hot wing buffalo, some Sweet Thai chile,some garlic parmesan, a few barbeque. All tasted great.

Thanks for a wonderful method of baking crispy chicken. I had the perfect sauce but wanted to find a nice way to bake the chicken so that it becomes crispy. I was looking at many different sources for using baking soda online and yours had the shortest cooking time. I adjusted the recipe a bit to fit the amount of chicken I wanted to bake. I hope it’s ok that I used this method to make my asian marmalade chicken wings recipe! I put the link and credit to your wonderful blog in my recipe post!

Really really good. Did without baking racks but i think I’d suck up the rack cleaning and use them. Had a lot of wings, still not touching, so a lot of grease. Under 10 wings i think no rack be fine over that i think its necessary or bottom half of all wings aren’t crisp. Will definitely use the again! Kid approved!

Reply
victor February 10, 2019 - 10:25 pm

That’s a good point, with a lot of wings using a rack is a good idea. When I cook a couple of dozen on a 21×16 inch baking sheet there is no grease, the bottoms are dry. I think it also depends on the wings, some have thicker and fattier skin, some don’t.

Rochi February 6, 2019 - 2:02 pm

Yes it may be crispy by coating it in Baking
Powder, but I found them too bitter. I would suggest to mix baking powder with Corn Starch might be a better coating, ( 1 cup Corn Srarch add 2 teaspoons of Baking powder. Sorry didn’t like the bitterness in the coating!! I have tried coating with only Corn Starch & it was nice & crispy & juicy inside.

I baked the chicken in a preheated 425 degree oven. I turned the chicken after 20 minutes, rotated the pan, & continued baking for another 20 minutes. Thank you very much.

Thank you, Ellen. I don’t believe the two will have the same effect but I’ve never tested this recipe with potato starch so I can’t really say. You can try with the starch, or skip it altogether. The wings will still be great and crispy as the convection will do its thing. They just won’t be extra crispy. Make sure to dry the wings very well with paper towels before putting them in the oven, that alone will help.

You are very welcome. Also try my air fryer chicken wing recipe, they are just as good, albeit slightly different. My wife actually prefers them over the convention oven baked wings.

I made 5 dozen wings last night and they were fabulous! My oven doesn’t have a convection feature so it took about 60 minutes, but I did open the door to switch the top and bottom pans a few times (which of course, increased then cookibg time). Our favourite flavour is dill pickle; sprinkle (or spray) 1 Tbsp white vinegar over a dozen wings and toss. Shake on dill popcorn seasoning, and good luck trying to resist!

Hi Laura, you can something close, but not the same. How you would do that, please look at my response to the first/oldest comment. I described the method in detail there.

Noelle November 14, 2018 - 4:37 am

When you line the baking sheet, do you put in both aluminum foil and parchment paper? So it should be baking sheet, aluminum foil, parchment paper and then wings? Just wanted to clarify.

Looking forward to trying this out. I’ve baked wings with dry rub before and never got it to crisp. Will try to use baking powder. 🙂

Reply
victor November 14, 2018 - 2:12 pm

The foil and the parchment paper are of course not necessary. I only use foil because I am too lazy to wash the baking sheet later on. And I use parchment paper because wings tend to stick to foil but not to waxy paper. One could just use parchment paper if it’s large enough to not let the liquids run onto the baking sheet.

Holly November 8, 2018 - 2:03 pm

Wow. I think this is the first time I have ever commented on a recipe…not my M.O., but these wings were absolutely amazing! I have never made wings before and my kids (4 kids, ages 6-11) had never had them, I made 4lbs and we were fighting over the last ones….I really think I could have doubled it if I had room in my oven! I did add some pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to the baking powder and salted them after they came out. I was concerned that they would not have enough flavor so I made 2 dipping sauces but we didn’t even use them cause the wings were so crispy and perfect on their own! These will definitely be in my regular rotation. Thank you!

Sarah October 28, 2018 - 9:16 pm

Question I followed recipe to the letter…. minus the convection oven and there was an after taste even with the sauce… I made a lemon pepper/butter sauce. Yes I used baking powder. I tried it again with the 30 mins at 250 then 40 at 425 and still had the after taste. I know it’s not the sauce as I tasted the wings before saucing the second round and it was there. Cheap baking powder? Stale baking powder? Maybe I can just taste the baking powder? I don’t know but if you have any ideas I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Reply
victor October 29, 2018 - 8:56 am

Hi Sarah, that’s tough one to answer without actually tasting the product. But it sounds to me like you are sensitive to the aluminum in the baking powder. You can try aluminum-free BP, but I have no idea whether the results will be the same.

I also found that these had a baking powder aftertaste, but did find a solution for it. I rinsed the remaining wings after cooking under the kitchen faucet, and then re-heated them, and they were good.

These are by far the best chicken wings I’ve ever had and I’ve been to Duff’s and Anchor Bar a dozen times. Seriously, these wings are better than restaurant Buffalo wings. They not as dry inside as deep-fried but still very crispy on the outside. I let them rest for 5 minutes before tossing with hot sauce and they didn’t get soggy. Love this wing recipe!

Reply
Nancy September 30, 2018 - 1:39 am

These are hands down the absolute BEST wings I’ve ever made. I have a fryer, and these turned out even better than the fried ones I’ve made previously. I did add some paprika and black pepper in with the baking powder simply because I prefer a naked wing but still wanted some seasoning baked into the skin. I still salted them after cooking and the insides were still tender and moist with the best crispy skin. My girlfriend even asked that I make wings for dinner again tomorrow!

The wings were perfect! I dried them with paper towels, seasoned them and let them sit for a while. Right before cooking I dabbed them with paper towels right before cooking and then tossed them with some powder. Lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and cooked on 20 minutes EACH side at a temp of 425. Perfectly crispy brown wings. My husband is obsessed.

I don’t own an air fryer so I’ve never tested it with any of my recipes. I’d be the wrong person to ask therefore. That said, an air fryer is essentially a compact convection oven so it should technically work just as well. Keep a close eye on the wings the first time around and make adjustments as needed. Good luck!

Has anyone tried frozen wings with this recipe? Or should I thaw them first?

Reply
victor December 21, 2017 - 8:02 pm

I would advise against baking them frozen as they will release some water which will prevent the skin from crisping up. Thaw them first (I put mine, vacuum sealed, in lukewarm water and they are ready to go in 20 minutes or so), then pat dry with paper towels really well.

Did you use a standard oven or convection? Did you cook for a full hour? Did you cook on a tray lined with parchment paper? I am cooking this way and have only yosted them with baking powder before baking. Going to toss them in the buttery garlic parmesan sauce 5 min after taking them out. Would love to know your exact steps. Thanks!

Reply
Melad January 16, 2017 - 2:20 pm

This is a great recipe for crispy baked wings. The only thing I would suggest is that I would preheat the oven to 200 degrees and bake the wings for about 20 minutes. This will allow the fat under the skin to slowly break apart at the low temperature. At that point, I would crank up the heat to 425 for 30 min to get the extra crispy skin.

Reply
Barbara January 3, 2017 - 9:20 pm

So how would cook if do not have convection oven?

Reply
victor January 5, 2017 - 9:09 am

Convection is a requirement in this recipe as you get better results – as in noticeably crispier skin and a shorter cooking time. You can even easily get away without baking them on a wire rack. However, if you don’t have a convection oven try the method below originally suggested by America’s Test Kitchen. You should get somewhat similar results.

Adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower-middle positions and preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Arrange wings in single layer on a wire rack placed over a backing sheet. Bake wings on lower-middle oven rack for 30 minutes. Move to upper-middle rack, increase oven temperature to 425 degrees, and roast until the wings are golden brown and crisp, 40-50 minutes longer, rotating sheet halfway through baking. Remove sheet from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer wings to a bowl with wing sauce of your choice, toss to coat, and serve.

I swear by my method though 😉
