How do you bake crispy chicken?

I'm a vegetarian so I never cook meat. But I have to cook some chicken wings for a party and I am not sure how to do it. I am using chicken wings. The whole wing, not the buffalo wing kind. I would prefer to bake them instead of frying and I do not want to add any sort of egg or flour to them. I just want plain old crispy chicken. A sauce will be applied later so they need to be just plain old chicken with no breading or anything like that.

How do I get a crispy chicken in the oven? Can I just put them on a cookie sheet and bake them until they reach temp?

You can just bake them, but without anything on the skin (like butter) I don't think it will be as crispy as you want. I usually put a thin pat of butter (less than a tsp) on top of a whole chicken (typically how I roast them) and as it melts down it crisps the skin up nicely. I'm not sure how I'd do that for wings without using a TON of butter, though. I had one lady tell me to brush mayo on my chicken one time for crispy skin, but that was just a little too southern/clogged arteries for me.

Try this minus the sauce http://www.thehungrymouse.com/2009/0...d-bbq-chicken/ . You'll probably want to spray it with cooking spray or brush a little oil on them. That will crisp the skin with out adding flavor. And since your using wings you might want to shorten the time a little. We do this with sauce using boneless breast and it turns out well, but you will need to brush with oil or spray or it won't crisp.

I cook my thawed wings in the oven with butter, salt and pepper for an hour at 350. You may want to turn in the middle. If they don't seem crispy enough I turn up the heat and cook a little longer.

I apply sauce after they are cooked as my kids don't like it.
