Chicken Wings Baking Tips
What’s the best temperature to bake chicken wings?
Do you always wonder how long to bake chicken wings in the oven and at what temperature?
For the best, tender, and juiciest wings in oven, here are my cooking and baking tips:
- Bake chicken wings at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (400F) or 200 degrees Celsius (200C) for 30 minutes, or bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (425F) or 220 degrees Celsius (220C) for 25 minutes.
- The best temperature is 400F as the oven heat is high enough to make the chicken skin crispy while retain the juice inside the chicken. The end result is golden crispy skin with tender, juicy and moist meat inside.
- If the temperature is higher than 425F, the wings will become tough and overly crispy. The meat will be completely dry, chewy and rubbery.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I Line Baking Sheet with Parchment Paper or Aluminum Foil?
Parchment paper is a preferred choice as the chicken won’t stick to it.
If you use aluminum foil, make sure to grease the surface with some cooking spray or the chicken might be sticking to it.
