Oven Baked Spicy Chili Wings

One of my biggest weaknesses is chicken wings. They are perfect bar food. Perfect with pizza and beer, and perfect to share. Usually they’re deep fried, super unhealthy, and over priced. I decided it was time to make my own at home. I’m glad I did. They were so much better than at a bar or take out. They’re crispy and juicy, not at all greasy. 

I chose to use the chili sauce I used for Thai Chicken Bites because it’s such an amazing sauce, but you could easily use any other sauce, or just a bottle of your favorite BBQ or hot sauce. 

Makes 24 wings

Prep Time: 15 mins. Cook Time: 50 mins.


 1 cup flour

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

1 tsp. Onion Powder

1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Salt & Pepper to taste

24 chicken wings


3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/4 water

2 tsp. garlic powder

1.5 tsp. Sriracha chili paste

1 tsp. red pepper flakes

1 tbsp. Cornstarch

1 tbsp. cold water


Combine flour, 1 tsp. garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Preheat oven to 400 F. 

Rinse and dry wings. Coat each wing with flour mixture. Place in a single layer on baking sheet. 

Allow wings to bake for 20 minutes then flip them and bake for another 20 minutes. While wings are cooking prepare sauce, if needed. For chili sauce heat sugar, rice vinegar, and water in a saucepan over med-high until it boils. Add garlic powder and red pepper flakes, and lower heat to simmer for about 3-4 minutes. Add Sriracha paste. In a small bowl mix cornstarch and cold water. Bring the mixture in saucepan back to a boil and add cornstarch mixture. Mix constantly until desired thickness is achieved. Transfer into a bowl. 

Remove wings from oven, dip each wing in sauce and place back on baking sheet. Place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes to allow sauce to thicken on wings. 

Remove and serve.
