    These turned out really crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I tossed the cooked wings in a honey garlic sauce and we ate the whole batch standing over the kitchen sink to catch all the syrupy drips! Really great recipe and technique.

    I thought it was pretty easy to make. I might tweak the recipe and a few more spices with the baking powder. otherwise it was crispy and tasty as advertised

    Really really good we made a hot sauce and a Bbq sauce. Really crispy. We don’t have a regular oven so we cooked it for another 40mins like suggested and came out great

    Super easy to make. I would recommend flipping the wings midway through cooking to crisp more evenly. Will definitely make again!

    Tasted great! My wings stuck to the parchment paper so I’ll add a tad of oil spray next time. I will definitely do again!

    I have always loved crispy chicken. it becomes a challenge as I stopped frying. The extra crispy baked chicken wings gave me tasty, textured wings

    I’ve tried this recipe twice now and both times my wings turn out powdery not sure what I’m doing wrong since I’m following the directions but oh well I guess?

    Awsome! Best wngs I ever made. Better than deep fried by a long shot.

    Wonderfully crispy skin. Soft, tender, moist meat that falls off the bone. I used the convection directions and the raised rack over pan method. I added a light dusting of salt for the no sauce people at the table and it brought out the flavor of the chicken nicely. My 8 year old is happily picking the meat off the bones and dipping away.

    I followed the instructions but my wings didn't get brown at all. I used the 250°/450° for a regular oven.

    I was hoping the sauce would cover the baking powder taste. Unfortunately, it didn't.

    These were awesome! I mixed them by hand to evenly coat them with the baking powder, after baking it was undetectable. Just crispy and moist wings! I don’t have a convection oven, so I used the instructions in the notes taken from America’s Test Kitchen. I didn’t use a rack, just placed them directly on the baking pan, with a silicone mat. I salted them after baking as recommended and then tossed them in Buffalo sauce. Great recipe! Hubby loved them too!

    I was very impressed with the result. I worried that it will taste like baking powder, not at all, you are not able to tell how they are so crispy. I don't have a convection oven so I used the first method 40 min at 450 and 40 min at 350. Thank you for this great recipe.

    This is my go to recipe now!! Thanks for figuring out the temp and time. 450 for 40 and the 350 for 40 works out great every time.

    Easy (and I’ve never made wings of any kind) and delicious. A crowd pleaser! Especially for my teenage nephews.

    it's an excellent recipe it came out crispy yet still juicy. the only complaint I had was that cooking it on a cooling rack with a drip pan underneath smoked out my house. I had to open doors and windows in the middle of October. lol next time I'm going to try cooking them on parchment paper. if that don't smoke out my house I'll add the 5th star.

    Amazing and crispy chicken! Thank you for the healthier alternative to fried chicken. I cooked as per the instructions.
    Perfect! I don’t have a convection oven, so I used a grate on the baking pan, and turned the wings over after 20 minutes, then continued baking for another 30 minutes. Delicious!

    This recipe is simple and delicious! I subbed the buffalo sauce for bbq and the wings were crispy & tangy.
