  • 1 large ziplock plastic bag or bowl
  • Tongs
  • sheet pan
  • Silicon mat, parchment paper, or foil (makes clean up on the pan a lot easier!)


  • 10 to 12 wings thawed, and dried
  • 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour 40g
  • 1 tsp. of salt 5g
  • 1 tsp. of garlic powder 5g
  • 1 tsp. of ground black pepper 5g
  • 1 Tbsp. of paprika 15g
  • 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper or chili powder for some heat, I leave it out, I am a wimp (2g)
  • 3 Tbsp. of butter 45g


  • Preheat the oven to 425 F/218 C. Take thawed chicken wings and pat them dry with paper towels. Leave the skin on, or you can remove it if you like.
  • Mix together all the dry ingredients, the flour, salt, garlic powder, paprika, pepper, etc. in a large bag or bowl. You can just shake the bag to mix them.
  • Use tongs to place the chicken wings in the bag and then shake the bag to coat them evenly with the dry mixture. Or place them in the large bowl with a lid and shake the bowl. Or just stir them in the bowl.
  • Melt the butter and pour half of it on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Then place the chicken about an inch apart from each other on the pan. Bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Turn them over and bake for an additional 15 minutes until nice and crispy.
  • Optionally, you can baste the wings with a sauce like a barbecue sauce, and then bake them.
  • Remove the wings from the oven and allow them cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving them. Enjoy!
