1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup hot sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot)

Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with non-stick cooking spray to prevent the wings from sticking.

Prepare the Wings:

Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This step is crucial for achieving crispy skin.

Season the Wings:

In a large bowl, combine the baking powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Add the chicken wings and toss them until they are evenly coated with the seasoning mixture.

Bake the Wings:

Arrange the seasoned wings in a single layer on the prepared wire rack. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, flip the wings and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the wings are crispy and golden brown.

Prepare the Sauce:

While the wings are baking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the hot sauce and stir to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.

Serve:

Serve the crispy baked chicken wings immediately with your favorite dipping sauces, such as blue cheese or ranch dressing, and celery sticks.

Conclusion

Baking chicken wings is a healthier alternative to frying that still delivers on flavor and crunch.

The use of baking powder in this recipe is a game-changer, helping to achieve that desirable crispy skin.

Whether you prefer them mild or with a spicy kick, these wings are sure to be a hit at any gathering.

Enjoy this delicious appetizer as part of your next meal or party spread, and watch as they quickly disappear from the plate!
