Chicken Wings with Baking Powder is one of the best chicken wings you can make. It is juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
This chicken wing is perfect. I know what you are thinking, adding baking powder in with the seasoning?! DO IT! I swear, it makes the skin of the chicken so crispy that it gives it so much flavor and an amazing crunch. Also the combination of the paprika and the chili powder is great. They are truly finger lickin’ good! I love a classic buffalo wing, but if you are looking for a healthier alternative and just as good, look no further!
You can buy chicken wings already cut up or whole. I used the whole wings which consists of the drum, the double boned wing, and the tip. You do not need to cut them up but if you do, do it after you grill.

Chicken wings: You can buy whole wings or wingettes with the bone in. The bone is what gives the wings the best flavor!
Baking Powder: This is the secret ingredient! To get that crispy skin, adding baking powder onto the chicken will give it such a nice texture.
Paprika: This is optional but I always love adding some spice to my wings, but the great thing about paprika is it has a level of sweetness to it.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
