Chef Tips: Professional Advice for making America’s Best Wings

Don’t Overcrowd the Baking Sheet

Arrange the chicken wings in a single layer on the baking sheet to ensure they cook evenly. If you overcrowd the sheet, the wings might not get crispy and may take longer to cook.

Consider Using a Meat Thermometer

To ensure your chicken is cooked through, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. The thickest parts of the wings should register at least 165°F (74°C).

Adjust Spice Level to Taste

Cajun seasoning typically contains a mix of spices that vary in heat level. Adjust the spiciness of the recipe according to your preference by increasing or decreasing the amount of cayenne pepper or omitting it completely.

Marinate Ahead of Time

For extra flavor, marinate the chicken wings in the spice mixture for a couple of hours or overnight in the fridge. This will allow the spices to penetrate the meat, resulting in a more flavorful dish.

Baste with Butter

For added richness, consider basting the wings with melted butter during the last few minutes of baking. This will add extra flavor and help them get crispy.

Serve with Cool Dips

The spiciness of the wings pairs well with cool dips like blue cheese or ranch dressing. Serve a few dipping sauces on the side for variety.

Broil for Extra Crispiness

If you prefer your chicken wings extra crispy, you can broil them for the last few minutes of cooking. This will give them a nice char and a crispy exterior, but keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.
