I think the first time I ever made this recipe was the year Kale and I got married. One of my sweet friends, Kelvin, who I worked with at Rococo’s gave me this recipe one night at work. Kelvin and I were always swapping recipe ideas. Or at least she was always giving me ideas and I would write them all down.
I do have a very similar recipe already on my blog. But I have tweaked it a bit over the years and make this version always now. It’s lightened up but still tastes delicious as ever. My kids sometimes ask me to make this for their birthday dinners! They love it that much.
- 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)
- 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.
