How to bake chicken wings?
- Baked chicken wings are so simple to make and you just need to preheat oven to 425 F degrees, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and parchment paper (I like to use both to avoid fat dripping into the baking sheet), season the chicken wings with all the seasonings you prefer and bake them.
- I also like to use olive oil just to help the seasonings to stick on the skin of the chicken.
- One last tip, flip them halfway through cooking time to allow them to be even crispier. All the step by step is on the recipe box below.
What to serve baked chicken wings?
If I make it for dinner, I like to serve with roasted veggies, salads and even some rice aside. But you serve it as an appetizer during game day; they go really well with blue cheese dip, garlic mayo sauce, ranch dipping sauce, ketchup and celery and carrot sticks.
- Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and on top of it with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add all chicken wings, olive oil and all the spices (except the green onions). Mix everything very well to combine.
- Place the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for about 30 minutes, remove from the oven, flip them and bake for more 15 to 20 minutes or until they're golden crisp. Time will depend on the power of your oven.
- Before serving, sprinkle with more salt and pepper if necessary and garnish with chopped green onions.
