For the Chicken Wings:

  • 2 pounds chicken wings, split into flats and drumettes
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (adjust to your preferred spice level)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Chicken Wings:

  • Pat dry the chicken wings with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  • In a bowl, combine baking powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Coat the chicken wings evenly with this mixture.

2. Air-Dry the Wings:

  • Place the seasoned wings on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Allow them to air-dry in the refrigerator for at least one hour or overnight. This step helps achieve crispiness.

3. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

4. Bake the Wings:

  • Arrange the wings on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

5. Make the Sauce:

  • In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add hot sauce, honey, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined and heated through.

6. Toss the Wings:

  • Once the wings are out of the oven, transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss until they are thoroughly coated.

7. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Arrange the wings on a platter and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro or parsley. Serve with celery sticks and your favorite dipping sauce.


  • For an extra layer of flavor, marinate the wings in the seasoning mix for a few hours or overnight.
  • Experiment with different sauce variations, such as barbecue, teriyaki, or honey mustard.
  • Serve the wings with a side of ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.
