The best baked homemade wings!

Let's get started!

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Thaw 3 lbs. of chicken wings, and cut into wingettes and drumettes. Lay the wingettes and drumettes out on a flat surface and dry them with a paper towel. 


Combine 1 Tbsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp. smoked paprika, and 1/8 tsp. salt and pepper in a small bowl and combine.   Sprinkle half of the mixture over the wings and toss to coat. Repeat with the second half of the mixture.


Line the bottom portion of a wire baking rack with foil. Fit the top portion of the wire baking rack firmly in the bottom portion.  Place the chicken wings on the wire baking rack. Do not overcrowd the wings.


Place the baking rack in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the pan once the chicken wings are fully baked.


Place the chicken wings in a large bowl. Toss with desired amount of buffalo sauce. Toss to coat completely. Repeat with more sauce if desired.
