  • 5 pounds chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned salt


  • Separate the wing into two pieces at the joint. Rinse in cold water and dry well.
  • Mix the baking powder and seasoned salt together.
  • Coat the wings with the baking powder and seasoned salt mixture.
  • Spray cookie sheets with a non-stick spray. Place the wings in a single layer. Bake 20-25 minutes at 450°.
  • While the wings are cooking, heat the sauce(s) you're going to use. When the wings are done, coat them with sauce(s) and serve. The wings stay crispy because they don't soak in sauce.
