Tips for crispy baked chicken wings
Here are some tips for getting crispy baked chicken wings:
Pat dry before baking – Always pat your chicken wings dry before baking them. We use paper towels. This helps remove excess moisture, which allows your seasonings to stick to the wings better, or for your olive oil to adhere to the wings better.
How many chicken wings per person
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled depending on your crowd. When cooking wings for -you’ll need 1 lb raw chicken wings per person.
Chicken wings lose about 1/2 of their weight when you cook them. So if you cook 4 lbs, you’ll wind up with about 2lbs in cooked wings. Please note that your exact yield and nutrition facts will always vary.
Substitutions for chicken wings:
Dried Herbs: You can replace dried basil, oregano, parsley and thyme interchangeably if you’re missing one. You can also omit any of them and still wind up with yummy chicken wings!
Parmesan Cheese: If you’re following a paleo or Whole30 diet – just skip the parmesan cheese.
Fresh Herbs: We don’t recommend using fresh herbs in these wings. They will not adhere to the wings as well as dried herbs.
