  • 2 lbs whole chicken wings (about 10-12)
  • 2 Tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1 tsp sea salt (or kosher salt)
  • 1 tsp onion powder (or granulated onion)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (or granulated onion)
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (for mild spiciness; add more to taste)


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Dry chicken wings with paper towels and place in a large bowl.
  • Melt the butter, pour over the wings and quickly toss or mix by hand, before the butter solidifies.
  • Transfer the wings to a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Season the wings evenly on both sides, with salt, both peppers and garlic and onion powders.
  • Baked at 400F on the second highest rack for 30 minutes, then drop the temperature to 350F and bake for another 10-20 minutes, or until the wings have sufficiently browned.
  • Remove from the oven and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
