Ingredients for Baked Chicken Wings
My recipe calls for only 5 ingredients that you already have in the pantry. It takes 5 minutes prep time to add the marinade to the chicken.
- Drummettes and wingettes.
- A.1. Sauce (steak sauce) – Original. This sauce works great on poultry!
- Cayenne pepper.
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? I have the perfect baking and cooking tips for you!
I bake chicken wings at 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. You can also bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit or 220 degrees Celsius for about 25 minutes.
For me, the best temperature is 400F as the temperature is high enough to make the chicken skin crispy, yet retaining the juice inside the chicken. The end result is always golden crispy skin, with tender, juicy and moist meat inside.
Higher temperature always makes the wings tough and overly crispy, so much so that the meat is completely dry, chewy and rubbery.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I line my 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.
Can I Bake Whole Chicken Wings?
Sure, you can definitely bake whole chicken wings using this recipe. There is no need to adjust the recipe, temperature or baking time.
