1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. 2. In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings in 2 tbsp. oil and season with salt and pepper. 3. Transfer the wings to the baking sheets skin side up and bake for 45 minutes, until cooked through and crisp.

“In my opinion, the perfect wing is all about texture and flavor,” Colicchio says. “The best wings are crispy and crunchy on the outside, and warm and juicy on the inside. The quality of chicken definitely matters and helps create that perfect bite. When making a sauce for the wings, it’s all about balance. Whether you prefer spicy or mild wings, it’s important to make sure your sauce has a mix of sweet, spicy, and tangy flavors.”
