Crispy Oven Baked Wings…you’ll think they’re deep fried!

Oh Pinterest, how I love you.

Nope….there is no oil or frying for these wings….could easily fool you though eh??

We tried this one night and they were amazing! I decided to share them on a family vacation to Prince Edward Island…east coast Canada…and got the thumbs up approval from my 7 year old sister…which is all the approval anyone needs 🙂

Here’s how to enjoy these healthy, crispy, no added oil, gluten-free chicken wings for yourself!

Ingredients:

• Chicken wings (approx. 20 pieces – 10 flats and 10 drums)

• 1 Tbsp Baking Powder (with no aluminum)

• 1 tsp Salt

So why the baking powder?? Apparently it breaks the peptide bonds in the skin causing it to dry out and crisp up while baking. Yum!

Directions:

• Toss all 3 ingredients together…this is not a breading but rather a thin coating…the baking powder will be absorbed and it will seem like there isn’t enough, but don’t worry it will work!

• Line baking tray with parchment paper and line up the wings but don’t crowd them

*the original recipe calls to bake the wings on a wire rack to let the fat drip out onto the parchment…however it works just as well if you put them directly on the parchment too…no need to flip!*

• Bake at 250F for 30 minutes

• Then pump up the heat to 425F and bake for another 45 min

• Remove wings from tray into a bowl.  Toss in your favourite wing sauce and serve! Or serve the sauce separately and dip 🙂

Here’s a few dips that I made:

Sauce #1 (spicy):

1 Tbsp each of:
• Ketchup
• Thai Red Curry paste
• Hoisin
• Sweet soy sauce
• Water

Sauce #2 (mild):

1 Tbsp each of:
• Ketchup
• Oyster sauce
• Maple Syrup
• Soy sauce
• Apple Cidar Vinegar

And a cooling dipping sauce:

• 1/4 cup Mayo
• 1/4 cup Yogurt
• 1 tsp Dill weed
• 1 tsp Lemon juice

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did 🙂 I guarantee you they will disappear really fast!
