Today’s post is dedicated to one of the most traditional recipes during the Superbowl, Chicken Wings. With the biggest football event of the year coming up on Sunday, I couldn’t resist sharing this recipe with you. As a new food blogger, I told myself I have to put myself in the game.

Wouldn’t you love to get your hands on these?

Well, you are in luck, these chicken wings are so easy to make and it will take you less than an hour. You and your guest will go absolutely insane over these.

How long does it take to bake these chicken wings?

Oven-baked chicken wings will easily take you up to an hour and sometimes maybe more to cook. Don’t have that amount of time? There’s no need to deep fry. I have a solution for this. I’m pretty sure you want to spend the day watching the game not the oven, so I took that into consideration.

I decided to tweak the time.

The trick to cut some time and still have crispy and well-done wings is to boil them for about 10 to 15 minutes before you bake them. This method of cooking is called parboil. Just remember, these are not cooked yet. It is not safe to eat the chicken at this point for obvious reasons.
You can even do this step early in the day. Place the chicken wings in a ziplock bag, add the baking powder and put in the fridge until ready to bake. Just make sure before you baked them they are room temperature.

This is a Super-bowl of Taste!

Tips and tricks to make crispy chicken wings:

  • To get crispy wings,  add some baking powder the chicken wings. It’s important Not to substitute baking powder with baking soda as this will have a very different result. Baking Soda will give the chicken a bitter unappealing taste.
  • Some people are sensitive to the flavor of the baking powder so It’s important to use aluminum-free baking powder to avoid an after taste.
  • Parboiling the wings will help render the chicken fat which creates a very crispy skin texture as well as saving you cooking time.
  • Place the chicken wings on a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. This will facilitate air circulation within the chicken wings creating evenly crispy skin

How to make these crispy buffalo style chicken wings:

Step 1: Cut the 8 chicken wings in half. This will make 8 drumettes and 8 wingettes, a total of 16 pieces. Remove the tips from the wings (optional) I like the tips so you might see a few of the wings with the tips.

Step 2: Season the wings with garlic, salt, and pepper. Place them in a pot with a ⅓ cup of water and parboil for about 10 to 15 minutes over medium-high heat.

Step 3: Preheat the oven to a 450 degree Fahrenheit  (250-degree Celsius).  Drain the wings in a colander to remove any excess water. Pat them dry using a paper towel, and add the baking powder. Stir until well coated.

Step 4:  Place the chicken wings on a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Make sure to place them within a distance from each other to allow them to cook evenly.

Step 5: Place in the oven for about 15 minutes or until they are crispy and with a golden color. This might not take you longer than this time because they are parboiled

    I like how you mentioned that you should use aluminum-free baking powder instead of regular baking powder in order to avoid an after taste. People or restaurants that make wings should keep this in mind so that the food tastes as it should. Thank you for the tips on how to cook wings.
