Cooking Tips:

  • If you have one use a baking rack to ensure extra crispy skin on your chicken wings.

Serving Tips:

Here is what I love to serve to go along with my chicken wings. 
  • Ranch dressing
  • Blue cheese dressing
  • Sliced celery
  • Peeled and sliced carrots

Frozen or thawed:

Fresh chicken wings are the best for this recipe. If you are using frozen then allow them to thaw completely and use a paper towel and pat dry.  
Using frozen chicken will cause a lot of extra water and soggy chicken wings so making sure they are thawed or fresh is very important to get crispy skin.
