These crispy baked salt and pepper chicken wings are a simple, delicious and healthier way of eating chicken wings. My inspiration for this dish comes from a similar salt and pepper chicken wings dish that my family always orders at a local Chinese restaurant. I was so happy with the outcome as the wings came out surprisingly crispy!
These chicken wings are simply seasoned with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Then, the wings are baked for an hour on a rack placed on a baking sheet to allow for more even cooking. It is as simple as that! My family could not resist these crispy wings, especially when eaten fresh from the oven. It is amazing that there is no oil in the recipe yet the wings came out so crispy and the best part about baking these wings is the easy cleanup. My family ate these wings on their own, but you can enjoy it with your favorite dipping sauce. This recipe is now my new favorite way of making wings without feeling guilty. Enjoy!

- 2 lbs chicken wings, a mixture of drumettes and wingettes
- 1 teaspoon sea salt

If you spray a rack with oil & put wings on it, then you do not have to turn them!
