Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Adding baking powder to the flour mixture helps wings get crispy in the oven.
  • Tip 2
    Cooking wings to 175°F ensures meat will easily come off bone.
  • Tip 3
    These garlic parmesan wings are proof that chicken wings. don’t have to be drenched in oil and deep-fried to be exceptionally crisp. What gives these oven-baked wings their crunch? Two words: Baking. Powder. The mixture of sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar and cornstarch present in baking soda combined with the high temperature of the oven results in golden-brown, crackling wings. Just make sure you’re cooking with baking powder (not baking soda) and that your oven is fully preheated to 400 degrees before popping the wings in. Otherwise, your chicken may not reach its full-crunch potential and that would be a shame.
