The other week on the FlavCity Instagram I made some baked chicken wings are you guys were hounding me for the recipe! First I had to shoot the YouTube video and now I can share the blog recipe for the most crispy oven baked chicken wings ever. This baked chicken wing recipe is super crispy thanks to air chilling the skin in the fridge – that’s the most important part. Tossed in a buttery homemade buffalo sauce and serve with creamy avocado dipping crema – so good!

Here are the steps for how to make crispy baked chicken wings:
- 1. Toss the chicken wings with baking powder, spices, and place on a wire rack set in a sheet pan in the fridge for 2-4 hours. This will evaporate all of the moisture and help make the skin crispy.
- 2. Bake the chicken wings in a 400 degree F oven for exactly 45 minutes and then turn the broiler on for the 5-7 minutes. This will ensure the chicken wings cook through and the skin gets nice and golden brown.
- 3. Make the homemade buffalo sauce by combining 1/2 cup of Frank’s hot sauce with 1/4 cup of god quality grass-fed butter, a pinch of salt, and 1 teaspoon of agave nectar or honey, optional.
- 4. Toss baked wings in warmed buffalo sauce and coat well. Serve wings with avocado dipping sauce!
How Do I Make a Chicken Wing Dip?
A dip for chicken wings should e creamy and cool to help balance the spiciness of the wings. To make the avocado dipping sauce, combine 1 cup of full fat sour cream with half a large avocado, grated garlic, cumin, lemon juice, and blend in a food processor. Check for seasoning as you may need more salt or lemon juice. Chicken wing sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge, it won’t turn brown because of the lemon juice.
What Temperature Should I Bake Chicken Wings At?
Bake chicken wings at 400 degree F (204 C) for 45 minutes. Make sure the wings are set on a wire rack inside a sheet pan. This will ensure even air flow and make the chicken wings crispy all around. After 45 minutes, set the broiler to medium and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the chicken skin is golden brown.

If I could give the guacamole creama recipe a higher rating I would. The wings are still in the oven, but I am eating this guacamole creama by the spoonful. Thank you because now I have my new mayonnaise! Can’t wait for the wings to get done.
