You won’t believe its oven baked. Its very crispy and so tender and juicy. The homemade sauce will drive you crazy and you will wish you were all alone so that you could lick your fingers. Chicken wings is one of my all time favorite appetizer and I enjoy it most when there are no people around. Wont you agree? As appetizing and irresistible it is, it can be messy too. Agnel and I both agreed that this is one of the best things I have made so far. Its also ideal when you have to make a large batch of appetizer or if you are planning to throw a new years bash or hosting a Super Bowl party. Its baked so you can pop the tray in the oven and just walk away. No peeping needed.
This wing sauce is made with a combination of different sauces. Serve this with your favorite dipping sauce.
Marinate the chicken with salt + pepper + ginger garlic paste.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Sprinkle some all purpose flour and coat the chicken wings well. Line it on a greased baking sheet, spray and coat the pieces well with cooking spray. Alternatively you can also drizzle some oil and coat the chicken pieces well.
