Of course, on game day, chicken wings are usually on the menu. Therefore a few years ago I started making crispy baked chicken wings.  They’re super easy to make and have become a crowd favorite in my home for any kind of sports party.

My method includes parboiling the chicken, drying them off completely, and baking them at a high temperature.
