Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- In the oven, should the wings be turned?
After 30 minutes of baking, the wings should be turned over. As a result, the other side of the wing can bake and get crispy as well. They will be soft and soggy on one side if you don’t flip them.
- How can you keep chicken wings crispy after sauce?
You must adhere to our instructions precisely – there are no shortcuts – to preserve wings crispy for as long as possible. After baking the wings for 30 minutes, turn them over and bake the other side for an additional 10 to 15 minutes. While the wings are still hot, you MUST apply the High On Chicken Buffalo Sauce.
- Why are wings covered in baking powder? Can I coat chicken wings with baking soda instead of baking powder?
The skin of chicken wings dries out with the use of baking powder. Thus, when baked, they become crunchy. In this recipe, baking soda is not something we advise using. If you use that much baking soda, the wings will taste harsh as a result.
