Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 10 chicken wings
Cost $5


  • 1 Oven Rack
  • 1 Mixing Bowl


  • 10 Chicken Wings segmented into tips, 'wing', and drumettes (total 30 pieces).
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder powder, not soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper freshly cracked (optional)


  • After breaking down your chicken wings, put all the segments into a bowl. Add the baking powder and salt and give everything a good mix with your hands. You don't need the baking powder to coat every piece, but you want it evenly spread around all the pieces.
  • Preheat your oven to 120 Celsius or 250 Fahrenheit. Place the segments onto a baking rack not touching each other.
  • Place the tray into the oven and put another tray beneath it to catch the drippings. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Raise the heat to 220 Celsius or 425 Fahrenheit and bake for another 40 minutes.
  • Remove the wings, sprinkle with pepper if you want, and serve hot.


These wings will hold for a week in the fridge, but may lose some of their crispiness because of moisture buildup.
