Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

It’s almost the Super Bowl, which means time to make my annual wings! I am a wing and a Super Bowl commercial kinda girl. Not so much into the game…. but how about you? Are you a commercial or game person?

Either way, I’m making my wings for everyone to nibble on. We have some friends coming over to watch who have never watch the Super Bowl (they’re from Australia) so I want to make them all the traditional stuff. This wing recipe is definitely one of them.

I like to make these with Frank’s Wings hot sauce. After living in Buffalo for 6 years, there really is no hot sauce that compares for this kind of dish. Do you have a fav hot sauce?

I also love that this is so easy to make and fresh wings are the absolute best. Now, tell me, do you have a favorite wing recipe? I’d love to try it out if you share it in the comments below.

Happy cooking!

Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 2 pounds chicken wings, halved at joints, wingtips discarded
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracker black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup Frank’s Wings Hot Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon water


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack (I use a cooling rack) on top. Spray the rack with non-stick spray.
  2. Use paper towels to pat the wings dry and place them in a large bowl. It’s important to dry them REALLY well!
  3. Combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and baking powder in a small bowl. Then sprinkle the seasoning over the wings, tossing to evenly coat.
  4. Arrange wings, skin side up, in single layer on prepared wire rack.img_5224
  5. Bake on the upper middle oven rack, turning every 20 minutes until wings are crispy and browned. The total cook time will depend on the size of the wings but may take up to 1 hour.
  6. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer wings to bowl and toss with sauce (next step).
  7. In a medium saucepan over medium heat stir together all sauce ingredients. Mix well until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature before adding to wings (or prepare the sauce ahead of time and refrigerate). Enjoy! img_5232img_5237
