Preheat oven to 250° F. Using paper towels, pat the chicken wings dry. Combine dry ingredients in small mixing bowl. Use fork to stir thoroughly. Note: Make sure you are using baking powder NOT baking soda. Place chicken wings in large mixing bowl and slowly sprinkle dry ingredients over the chicken wings while stirring with a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Be sure to cover as much of the chicken as possible, with the dry ingredients. Spray oven rack with non-stick coating. Place rack on bottom center position of oven. Place chicken wings directly on oven rack (use foil-lined baking sheets to catch drippings on lower rack.) Bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, increase oven temperature to 425° F. Raise up rack of chicken wings to center level. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 425°, until wings are brown and crispy. Remove from oven and allow to rest for five minutes before serving or mixing with optional sauce.
Be sure to use baking powder and baking soda.
In lieu of using oven rack for the wings, you can use a cooking rack placed over a foil-lined baking sheet.
If tips of the wings begin to turn black, cover them with a little piece of foil.
