HOW TO GET CRISPY BAKED CHICKEN WINGS
There are a few ways to make chicken wings crispy. One way is to coat them with baking powder and spices before baking. The baking powder draws out moisture from the chicken skin, which helps it get crispy in the oven. Another way is to use a wire rack on top of your baking sheet. This elevates the wings and allows hot air to circulate around them, resulting in crispier skin. Lastly, you can broil the wings for a few minutes at the end of baking to give them a final crispy finish. Combine these techniques for ultimate crispy chicken wings.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHICKEN WINGS
Chicken wings are a versatile dish that can be served as an appetizer or a main course. Here are some ideas for what to serve with chicken wings:
Dipping sauces: Classic buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, honey mustard, and BBQ sauce are all popular options.
Vegetables: Serve some fresh veggies like carrot and celery sticks, cucumbers, and bell peppers alongside the wings. This provides a refreshing contrast to the spicy wings.
French fries or sweet potato fries: Crispy fries are a classic side dish that pairs well with chicken wings.
Coleslaw: Creamy coleslaw is a refreshing side dish that complements the spicy flavors of chicken wings.
Mac and cheese: This comforting side dish is a crowd-pleaser and provides a hearty accompaniment to wings.

SOY GARLIC GINGER CHICKEN WINGS – BAKED CHICKEN WINGS
- ½ cup honey
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger, finely diced
- ¼ cup water
- 2 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, and drumettes separated (24-26 chicken wings)
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Use a paper towel to remove any moisture from the chicken wings.
- Toss the wings with the oil, salt, and pepper.
- Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet then place a wire rack on top. Spread out the wings on a single layer on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes until crispy.
- While the wings are cooking, make the sauce. Add the honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and water to a small pot. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat to low letting it simmer for 10 minutes – or until slightly reduced and thickened.
- Remove the sauce from the heat and let it cool. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
- Remove wings from the oven. Toss the wings in the sauce and place them back in the oven on the baking sheet and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
- For the soy sauce I use gluten-free tamari, but you could use coconut aminos as well for a soy-free, paleo-friendly option.
- I always recommend a heavy duty baking sheet so it doesn’t warp when cooking. Here’s the baking sheet I use.
