These wings can get sticky as they bake, so line your baking sheet with greased nonstick foil or parchment paper for easy turning.

  • Portion size 24 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: March 2016


  • 900 g separated trimmed chicken wings
  • 3/4 teaspoons each salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour or cornstarch


In bowl, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with flour; toss to coat. Arrange on lightly greased nonstick foil– or parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until crisp and golden, 45 to 50 minutes.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Chicken wings that are sold separately and trimmed are a real time-saver. If you can't find them at your local grocery store, cut the tips off of whole chicken wings, then cut each wing in half at the remaining joint.
