  • 2 pounds chicken wings, cut into drums and flats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

Sauce #1. (Spicy)

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons Crystal’s or Franks RedHot Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Sauce # 2. (Sweet Heat)

  • Toss wings with baking powder and salt in a large bowl until evenly coated.
  • Place wings on rack, leaving about a half-inch between them.
  • Lay the baking sheet with wings in the refrigerator and let them rest, uncovered,
  • for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F and adjust oven rack to upper-middle position.

  • Transfer Wings to a large bowl and sauce them with either sauce. Toss to coat and serve.

Sauce # 1 (Spicy)

  • When heated pour the amount of sauce you would like over the wings, toss.
