Common Questions

How do you know when chicken wings are done?

The temperature and timing should be adequate, but you can always use a thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken (at least 165˚F and tastier if 175˚F).

Can you use frozen chicken wings?

You can, but be sure to thaw completely before baking, or they won’t crisp up properly.

How can you make the wings spicier?

Add in a teaspoon of cayenne pepper or black pepper to the dry seasoning for a spicier wing.

Can I make these in the Air Fryer?

You can cook the wings following the time and temperature for our Air Fryer Chicken Wings then toss with buffalo sauce to finish. You will need to cook in 3 batches or cut the recipe down to 1 lb of chicken wings.
