RECIPE: Easy Crispy Chicken Wings

Easy crispy oven-baked chicken wings with dipping sauce

Easy Crispy Chicken Wings are the kind of thing you make on days you really don’t feel like cooking. You just shake the jointed chicken wings in a bag of seasoned flour, spray with cooking spray, and stick ‘em in the oven for half an hour.

And the bonus is that no one will know how incredibly easy they were to prepare. These wings will draw raves from the youngest to the oldest in your household. I prepare wings several different ways, some recipes being easier than others but these are the wings my teenager has dubbed his “favorite.”
