Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Wings


  1. 5 pounds chicken wings
  2. 1 1/2 Tbs baking powder
  3. 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  4. 1/2 Tbs kosher salt Or less, see note
  5. 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  6. Ginger Soy Glaze:
  7. 1/4 cup honey
  8. 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce Use low sodium or it will be too salty
  9. 1 1/2 tsps minced garlic
  10. 1 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  11. 1/4 cup water


Wings instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 250°F. And place on rack at the lowest setting, and one near the top.
  • Use a paper towel to pat the totally defrosted wings dry. This will not work with frozen wings.
  • Place wings in a large bowl or in a ziplock bag. Add the baking powder and salt and pepper, and toss to coat evenly. Note: Some have complained the wings are too salty, adjust to preference, but remember salt is needed to help dry out the skin and get crispy wings.
  • Line a tray with foil, and set a wire rack inside the rimmed baking sheets.
  • Brush rack with vegetable oil, or spray with cooking oil. Place the wings on the baking tray in a single layer with the skin side up. It will be a tight fit, use two sheets if needed.
  • Brush wings with remaining oil. Or spray with cooking spray
  • Bake wings at 250 for 30 minutes at the lowest oven rack setting, this will help to help render the fat.
  • After 30 minutes, increase temperature to 400 degrees, and move wings up to the top of the oven. Bake an additional 45-50 minutes until cooked through and skin is crispy, and wings are golden brown. Optional: Flip once during baking
  • Once baked, remove wings from pan, and toss in a bowl to coat with sauce of choice
  • Return to baking sheet rack, bake for 5-6 minutes until glaze is lightly caramelized.

Ginger Soy Sauce:

  • Bring all ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve honey. Taste, and adjust as desired, such as adding sweetener.
  • Reduce heat to low; simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1/4 cup, 7–8 minutes.
