Baked chicken wings are so easy to make, and they come out of the oven crispy and delicious. Simply bake them in a 400°F oven for 40 minutes. There's no need for flour!

Chicken wings are probably my favorite part of the chicken. I find that the ratio of juicy meat to crispy skin is just perfect, more so than in any other chicken part.

I make this recipe often. Cooking wings in the oven instead of frying them is easy and a good choice, and they turn out so wonderfully crispy. My entire family enjoys them and repeatedly asks for them!

Yields0.25 Servings
Prep Time5 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time25 mins

 3 lbs chicken wings, split, tips removed
 2 tbsp butter, melted
 2 tsp Diamond Crystal kosher salt (if using fine salt, you might want to use less)
 ½ tsp black pepper
 1 tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp paprika (or smoked paprika)

1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil and fit the baking sheets with wire racks.

2

If your chicken wings are whole, cut the tips off and separate the drumettes and the flats (here’s a good video that shows how to do that).

3

In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with the melted butter.

4

Arrange the coated chicken wings in a single layer on the wire racks, not touching each other. Sprinkle them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.

5

Bake the wings until the skin is browned and crispy, about 40 minutes.

6

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: For extra crispy wings, bake the wings for just 30 minutes, then leave them in the oven, lower the oven temperature to the "keep warm" setting (170 degrees F), and keep the wings in the oven for 30-60 more minutes.
