  • Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray your rack with oil.
  • Arrange wings on the rack skin side up. Place the rack in the baking sheet.
  • Put the baking sheet on an oven shelf placed in the lower quarter of your oven and bake for 30.minutes.
  • Move the wings to the upper shelf and increase temperature to 425F.
  • Bake for another 35-45 minutes or until the wings are crispy and lightly browned.
  • While the wings are baking make the sauce:
  • Simmer everything on lowest flame in a small saucepan for about 15 minutes.
  • When wings are done, carefully dip them in sauce and place them back on the rack.
  • Pop them again in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce or plain.


* Make sure to use baking powder not baking soda.
** Adding hot sauce is optional so add to your liking.
*** If you do not have time for that then make sure to dry the wings as possible as you can. Spread them on kitchen towel and pat dry well all around.
