Total Time1 hr 15 mins
- 4 pounds chicken wings cut into sections or left whole
- 2 tablespoons baking powder NOT baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 stick butter melted
- 1/2 cup Tabasco sauce or your favorite hot sauce
Pat the chicken wings dry. Place in a single layer on a baking tray and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, if possible. This step is optional but helps make crispy skin.
In a small bowl, mix the baking powder, salt, and pepper.
Place the wings in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the baking powder mixture and toss to evenly coat all the wings.
Line a baking tray with aluminum foil. Place cooling racks on tray. Lay the wings in a single layer on racks. If they are touching slightly that is ok.
Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for one hour, turning once half-way through the baking time.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of your favorite hot sauce and stir to combine.
Remove the baked wings to a large bowl. Drizzle the sauce over the wings retaining some for dipping sauce when you serve the wings. You could also brush the sauce over the wings with a pastry brush.
Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce and condiments.
