Crispy Baked Barbecue Chicken Wings

Basic chicken wings are baked to crispy perfection using a special dry seasoning mixture, then coated with your favorite barbecue sauce. They are then broiled to crispy, sweet, sticky perfection!

Crispy Baked Barbecue Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are one of the most popular game day snacks, and it’s no wonder why. Spicy, garlicky, vinegary sauces coat these little deep fried pieces of deliciousness and it’s easy to eat way more than you should. And did I mention they are usually deep fried?

Oven Baked Crispy BBQ Chicken Wings

I’m not a fan of deep frying at home, so I began making chicken wings in the oven. It wasn’t until I began using a coating of flour, baking powder and spices that I discovered it was easy to achieve crispy chicken wings right in the oven. Adding barbecue sauce was a no-brainer. To finish them off I place them under the broiler to get that super sticky sweet finish.

Crispy Baked Barbecue Chicken Wings

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 35 mins
Total Time 50 mins
Servings 24 wings


  • 2 dozen chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup sifted flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray generously with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Set aside.
  • Trim any excess skin from chicken wings (leaving most of the skin in tact). Pat dry and place each wing in the flour mixture, stirring to coat each wing.
  • Place wings on the coated, foil covered baking sheet; close together but not touching.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, flip wings over and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove baking sheet from the oven and move the oven rack to the top position. Flip the oven to hi-broil.
  • While the broiler is heating, generously brush each wing with barbecue sauce. Return the pan to the oven and broil for about 5 minutes. Watch closely as they can burn easily.
  • Remove pan from the oven and cool for a few minutes before serving.

  1. Still making these for dinner 1 to 2 times a month. I have pre made the seasoning for many batches and put it in a container so it is really quick to make these.

  2. Fantastic!! My family can’t get enough of these! So flavorful and best of all, they are cheaper than the storebought ones! We will be making this from now on whenever we get the craving for wings! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      1. These are beyond awesome! Can not justify buying wings when we eat out, Tried it once and they were not worth paying for. I almost can’t quit eating these when I make them.

  3. Made these last night and my only disappointment was that there were no left overs. They were crispy and delicious and my family loves them. I can’t wit o make them again. Next time I have to make sure I have more wings

  4. i made these without the flour today (i wanna try that, but didn’t have it in the pantry) and only added adobo to the seasoning.
    my mom loved it! thanks, will be trying the rest of your recipes.

  5. Yuck! Did I miss a wet ingredient besides barbecue sauce? The baking soda taste left a horrible after taste. I had to toss out the wings and make frozen pizza.

  6. I am going to try this with my picky family, tonight. However, I cannot understand the purpose of moving the rack to the top position. Seems like a good thing to know. I’ll get back to this recipe later after I tried it. Maybe 20 minutes both sides and broil. (My family is on my case to cook chicken more than I prefer.)

  7. I have been trying to make good wings for ages.
    Found this recipe and it is perfect.
    I had some pre-made BBQ rub and used about 10tsp.
    They turned out fantastic and I will be adding them to my recipe book

  8. I made this chicken yesterday for my office’s yearly Thanksgiving Potluck. It was a big hit and I even won a medal. The only thing I had to tweek is the amount of time I left the chicken in the oven. It was not brown enough for my liking so I left it in a little longer than stated in the recipe.

  9. Made this tonight for my husband and kids and they were SCRAPPING the plate! Wonderful easy way to make crispy tasty fried chicken. I added some cumin and some other spices i had on hand. This was a great recipe will definatly be making this again. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I haven’t tried that, but I’m sure it could be done with some tweaks. You’d need more of the ingredients and to increase the cooking time by quite a bit.

  10. My husband is extremely picky about chicken wings. Won’t eat them out anywhere. Says they are slimy, not crunchy. This recipe sounded easy, which it was. Followed the recipe exactly. Just added extra hots to his BBQ sauce. And he LOVED them!!! This will be the third time that he has requested them. Thank you.

    1. My husband is the same. “I don’t want rubbery wings!” I’m making these now. The chicken should sit in the seasoning for about ten minutes longer for more flavor and the crispy element may benefit from sitting on the chicken about ten minutes longer…but the recipe itself is amazing! Wish me luck!
