These Truly Crispy Oven Baked Wings are so crispy, it's hard to believe they aren't deep fried!
  • Wings:
  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder (NOT baking soda)
  • 1¾ teaspoon salt
  • oil spray
  • Smoky Spicy Chipotle Dipping Sauce:
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 chipotle chilies + 1 tablespoon adobo sauce from the can
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and lay the wings out onto the rack. Allow them to dry out in the fridge overnight. Alternatively, pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Put one oven shelf in the lower quarter of the oven and one in the top quarter.
  3. Place the wings in a large zip-top bag. Add the baking powder and salt. Shake the bag to coat the wings evenly.
  4. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray a rack with oil then place it on the lined baking sheet. Place the wings skin side up on the rack. Bake on the lowest shelf in the oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Then move the tray up to the top shelf and turn the heat up to 425 degrees F. Continue to bake for 40 - 50 minutes, rotating the tray halfway through. The wings do not need to be turned over. They are ready when the wings are dark golden-brown and the skin is very crispy.
  6. While the wings are finishing up, pureƩ the ingredients for the dipping sauce until smooth.
  7. Serve the wings immediately with the Smoky Spicy Chipotle Dipping Sauce and enjoy!
