Note: I’m not sure who originally invented this, but I heard about it via America’s Test Kitchen.



  1. I’ve been deep frying my wings for years. This recipe hands down is one of the best wing recipes I’ve ever made. I think they came our even crispier then my deep fried wings. Also, they didn’t lose the crispness when the sauce was added. No more deep frying for me. I won’t miss all the mess either. The only thing I’ll do different the next is to add less salt to the dry ingredients. The sauce was very spicy, so I went light with it at first. Then I added more. It was delicious. All around perfect recipe if you love wings!

  2. this is an absolute winner sir! and delicious with a little creamy garlic ceasar dip! the baking powder thing worked like a charm, and i tossed a few in franks red hot like i usually do with a vastly improved result there as well due to that crispiness..i am now the rudyard kipling of my chicken wing flip thing!

  3. Why all the haters? I noticed over 500 people gave the thumbs down, why? John the chef is fantastic has been doing this for years on YouTube, as recipes are excellent very tasty and easy to make. You guys don’t know a good thing until you have to shoot shoot in the foot.John please disregard all these heaters as there’s more people globally and We, your fans love you and what you’ve done as a teacher for all of us! Best wishes.

  4. Holy shit Chef John! You have given me the answer to one of my dilemmas in life and that dilemma is how to get a Crispy Chicken Wing that is not fried. I have a Big Easy Oil-Less Turkey Fryer that I cook wings on but the skin never comes out crispy. I've tried the baking powder technique before and it works in the oven so why not in the oil-less turkey fryer? I don't know why I haven't remembered this sooner but I'm excited. Thanks again Chef John.

  5. Love your recipes Chef John, including this one! (made it tonight and it turned out fantastic) but you said you would link your method for separating whole chicken wings "somewhere", and I didn't see it in links for this vid or even on the blog…

    I do actually believe I've even seen you separate chicken wings in some other video before tonight, but I sure as heck couldn't remember which one, or even how you said to do it… I obviously figured it out myself, but I think it would have been smoother with that link to you doing it. Just my thoughts, still think you're great. Keep up the great work.

  6. For those ppl late to the party, like me… totally in love with you Chef John…in a foodie way!! Have totally been binging on ur vids. I think I am a good cook, but OMGOSH, these wings are killer! Seriously, I made them and couldn't believe how delicious and easy they were!!! Love your recipes, adore your humor. Thank you so much for this channel!

  7. I made these the other night (making them again tonight) and I love them, just have to tweak the recipe to my personal liking and play with other hot sauces instead of sriracha (sriracha is the best tbh it's not too vinegary and balances with honey well)

  8. I made this really good i took some of chicken that my mom made she made chicken and rice not my fav i took the chicken washed it off put the baking powder on and everything listed deep fried it for around 3 mins then added sriracha and the honey i was surprised how good it was anyways 2 thumbs up

  9. This does work on other poultry. Also, if you do not want to take time to dab chix pcs. to cover white spots with grease on other pcs., grab a fork, lift baking screen, use a basting brush and grab some rendered chix fat out of baking pan, much quicker and easier.

  10. This is a good recipe except for ONE THING…. baking powder is salty as hell (check the label for sodium) adding 2 TBS of Kosher salt to 2 TBS of baking powder makes these wings super super salty. Unless you want this much salt ( A LOT) on your wings you should not add salt to the rub. I tried the same recipe using NO ADDED kosher salt but added 1 tsp of corn starch and they came out awesome and crispy, just not salt bombs like the original recipe would have you end up with.
