These baked chicken wings are as crispy as fried with a fraction of the fat

Print this recipe
Fried chicken wings are a classic bar snack for a reason, but not only are they high in calories, deep-frying at home can be a bit of a pain. That's where the recipe below comes in. Rich in flavor but lower in fat than fried, these baked chicken wings are ultra crispy, thanks to a secret ingredient: baking powder.
These wings are delicious on their own with just a hint of salt, pepper and paprika. But you can also add your favorite seasonings and dipping sauces to make them even tastier. Consider adding other spices to the breading, like garlic powder or cayenne pepper, and serve them with your favorite buffalo sauce, ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.
