Restaurant Style Crispy Succulent Chicken Wings | Baked Wings

Wohoo! Finally, I made restaurant style chicken wings in my kitchen, it’s crispy, juicy and it’s BAKED!!!

I know most people out there are just like me who find it absolutely hard to resist chicken wings. To stop with just three or four wings is a tough thing to do. I’ve experienced that complete pleasure is achieved only if the whole plate of wings is emptied in just one sitting, any different opinion?

Chicken wings, purely a guilty pleasure!

I thought making restaurant-style chicken wings in my kitchen is almost close to impossible. But after making this, now I know I can make it in my kitchen just like restaurant-style. And the best part is it’s baked, not at all fried…

Wohoo! what more do I need than baked, crispy, juicy, and spicy chicken wings just like restaurant-style! I adapted this recipe from Allrecipes.com. The original recipe called for frying the wings, but I baked it. I was spellbound to see that even the baked ones came out crispy, juicy, and tasted just like fried ones.

I made a spicy sauce to coat the baked chicken wings as well, this enhanced the taste of the wings a million times.

Note: To make crispy baked wings: you must marinate the wings in the flour mix for at least an hour. This is the key to making the wings crispy. So, please don’t skip this step.
