  • 3 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 3 to 4 tsp Old Bay Seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 250F and place a baking rack over a baking sheet lined with foil. Brush rack with oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Pat wings dry very well and place in a plastic bag. Sprinkle with baking powder and shake to coat. Lay wings in a single layer on prepared baking rack and bake in lower third of oven for 30 minutes.
  3. Increase oven temperature to 425F and move baking sheet to upper third of oven. Continue to bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, until crispy.
  4. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook butter until it becomes a deep amber, 4 to 5 minutes. Watch carefully so it does not burn.
  5. Transfer wings to a bowl and pour butter over. Toss to combine. Sprinkle with Old Bay to taste (it can get pretty salty so a light hand is best until you see how they taste).
