Healthy and Delicious: How to Make Oven-Baked Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are a classic dish that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, and oven-baked wings are a healthier alternative to fried ones. In this blog post, we’ll explore some tips and tricks to make the perfect oven-baked chicken wings, as well as some sauce options to take your wings to the next level.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Pat the wings dry before seasoning. Moisture on the wings can prevent the seasoning from sticking properly.
  2. Use a wire rack on top of a baking sheet to allow air to circulate around the wings and promote even cooking.
  3. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) before baking the wings.
  4. Flip the wings halfway through cooking to ensure that they cook evenly on both sides.
  5. Let the wings rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute and prevent them from being too dry.


  1. Buffalo Sauce: Mix together melted butter and hot sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot) to create a classic buffalo sauce. Add a bit of honey or brown sugar for sweetness, and a pinch of garlic powder for flavor.
  2. BBQ Sauce: Combine ketchup, honey, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and a few dashes of hot sauce to create a tangy BBQ sauce. Add a pinch of smoked paprika for a smoky flavor.
  3. Garlic Parmesan Sauce: Melt butter in a pan and add minced garlic. Cook for a few minutes until fragrant, then add grated Parmesan cheese and stir until melted. Add a bit of heavy cream or milk to thin the sauce if necessary.
  4. Asian-style Sauce: Combine soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, and a splash of rice vinegar to create a sweet and savory Asian-style sauce. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for some heat.

Oven-baked chicken wings are a delicious and healthier alternative to fried wings. By following these tips and experimenting with different sauces, you can create a variety of delicious wings to please any crowd. Enjoy!
