How To Make BBQ Wings Crispy in the Oven
To get perfect crispy wings from the oven that taste like they were fried, it takes a little bit of setup and good timing – but even beginner cooks can easily master these wings!
-Use a wire rack. Giving your wings a wire rack to set on over a baking sheet helps improve air circulation around the wing, letting it cook faster, and allowing the fat to drip down and not make the wing soggy.
-Preheat oven completely. Wings like to be cooked in high heat – start your recipe off right with a preheated oven for best crispy results.
How To Bake Chicken Wings
To bake these Keto Crispy Cajun Chicken wings, you will need the following basic tools:
How To Cut Chicken Wings
I often buy flats of chicken wings from my grocery store because they are much more affordable – and often more fresh!
Cutting your own chicken wings saves a ton of money, so I try to always trim my own chicken wings whenever I can. For this recipe, you can use the whole wing intact – but I find the texture is the best when I cut them.
Cutting chicken wings down to pieces makes them easier to eat, and also helps get a super crispy texture!
To cut chicken wings into thirds – flat, drumette, and tip of the wing – follow the instructions below:
-Using a sharp large chefs knife, feel for the joints between the 3 main parts to a chicken wing – the wing tip, the flats, and the drumette.
-Bend the joints backwards, using your hands, to get them to loosen.
-Use your knife to feel where the bones come together, and pressing down hard, cut through the joint. (You don’t want to try to cut the bone – but find the space in between the bones.)
-While you can cook wing tips, they often dont have much (if any) meat to them. Discard any that don’t look to offer you much meat.
Keto BBQ Sauce
If you want tot make your own keto BBQ sauce, try my favorite method below:
- 16 ounces of Sugar-Free Tomato Sauce
- 4 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce, no added sugar
- 4 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, with the mother
- 4 teaspoons of Liquid Smoke Flavor
- 2 teaspoons of Salt
- 2 teaspoons of Onion Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Garlic, crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper, optional
- 1/4 teaspoons of Stevia, powdered
Add ingredients to a saucepan and cook on low for 5-10 minutes, until fragrant and thick.
Let cool completely and add to an airtight container. Always keep refrigerated when not in use.
