Preheat the oven to 400ºF. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch, paprika, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, freshly cracked pepper, and salt.

Combine Spices


Pat dry chicken wings or drumettes. Place the dried chicken in a bowl, drizzle with cooking oil, and toss to coat. Add the cornstarch-seasoning mixture and toss to coat again. 

Add Oil & Seasoning


The wings are now coated in a light mixture of oil, cornstarch, and seasoning which will create a flavorful and crispy exterior once baked.

Prepare to Bake

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Place two wire cooling racks on top. Add the seasoned chicken on top of the wire racks with some space between each wing.


Bake the chicken wings in the preheated 400ºF oven for 30 minutes, then flip each wing over. Bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until they achieve the amount of browning you like.
