  1. Can I prepare the wings ahead of time?
  • Yes, you can prepare and season the wings up to 24 hours in advance. Store them uncovered on a wire rack in the refrigerator to help the skin dry out, which makes them extra crispy when baked.
  1. What’s the purpose of chilling the wings in the refrigerator?
  • Chilling the wings helps dry out the skin, which is essential for achieving a crispy texture once baked. The drying process is enhanced by the salt and baking powder, which draw moisture to the surface.
  1. Can I use aluminum foil instead of parchment paper for baking?
  • Yes, you can use aluminum foil on the baking sheet for easy cleanup. Just be sure to use a wire rack on top to allow heat circulation around the wings for even cooking.
  1. How can I make sure the wings are crispy?
  • Make sure the wings are patted dry before seasoning and chilling them uncovered in the refrigerator to remove excess moisture. Also, ensure they are not touching each other on the wire rack to allow heat to circulate freely.
  1. Is there a substitute for potato starch?
  • Yes, if you don’t have potato starch, cornstarch is a great substitute that will also help in achieving crispy skin.
  1. What adjustments should I make if I don't have a wire rack?
  • If you don’t have a wire rack, make sure to flip the wings more frequently to ensure they cook evenly on both sides. The rack helps by allowing heat to circulate under the wings, so without it, the underside may not become as crispy.
  1. Can I grill the wings instead of broiling them?
  • Absolutely! Grilling the wings can add a nice char and smoky flavor. Just be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent burning due to the high sugar content in the sauces.
  1. How can I reheat leftover wings?
  •  A quick 30 seconds each side in the microwave does the trick, but for that fresh-out-of-the-oven crispiness, an Air Fryer is your best friend. Just 6 minutes at 400°F will revive them beautifully
  1. How long can I store the leftover sauces?
  • The sauces can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Reheat gently on the stove or in the microwave when ready to use.
  1. Can I make these wings gluten-free?
  • Yes, the wings can be made gluten-free by ensuring that all the sauce ingredients, especially soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, are gluten-free. Use a gluten-free soy sauce substitute like tamari.
  1. What are some serving suggestions for these wings?
  • These wings pair beautifully with classic sides such as celery sticks, carrot sticks, and ranch or blue cheese dressing. They also go great with a simple coleslaw, potato salad, or a refreshing cucumber salad.

12.. What if I don’t have a broiler?

  • Just extend the baking to 40 minutes at 450*F, then flip, and bake for an additional 40 minutes, this time at 350*F. 
  1. What if I want to make less sauces?
  • The quantities for each sauce I've shared are perfect for coating 4 lbs of wings. If you want to try different flavors together, consider halving the recipes to get a variety without waste.
