My trick to super crispy oven baked wings is boiling them first. Sounds weird but it renders out a lot of the fat which shortens oven time and makes them more crispy.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degree.
  • Bring pot of water of water to boil. Add 1-2 tablespoon salt (should taste like salt water).
  • Add chicken to pot, lower heat to simmer for about 5-8 minutes depending on how big wings are.
  • Dry wings thoroughly. This is important!
  • Place wings on metal sheet pan (thicker side face down). 
  • Cook for 25 minutes.
  • Flip and cook another 5-12 minutes. Cook time varies based on size of wings and oven (regular vs convection).
  • Sauce wings hot out of oven. Make sure sauce is warm when you coat them.
