Baked Chicken Wings

The man and the boys at home love eating fried chicken wings.
This is one dish they never get tired of. But I dislike the amount of oil used in frying the wings, not to mention the cleaning up after the frying.

So here's a baked version of the wings ... healthier, satisfy the man and the boys, and make me happy as there is minimum cleaning up after the cooking!

7-9 Three joint wings
2-3 tbsp Lemon Juice
Corn Flour
Dash of salt to taste
Melted Butter (Optional)

  • Remove the tip from the wings.
  • Cut the wings at the joint to get a drumlet and a wing.
  • Wash and dry the wings.
  • Marinate the wings in lemon juice. Leave for at least 30 minutes.
  • Discard the lemon juice.
  • Add salt to the wings.
  • Coat the wings with cornflour.
  • Line a roasting/baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Put the four coated wings on the parchment paper.
  • Brush the wings with butter if desired.
  • Bake at 425F for about 2o minutes or till cooked through.
  • Broil the wings for crispy wings.
  • Keep an eye on the wings while broiling or they may burnt!
  • Remove excess oil in the tray with a kitchen towel if necessary.
  • Turn over and broil the other side.

Less messy compared to frying in oil =)
