Flavor very weak. Flour was clumpy and the wings stuck to the pan. No direction to spray pan. 30 minutes made soggy wings. Next time, NO FLOUR!

These turned out sooo good. Not too hot just right, I will make them again.

Each time I make them I change up the spices in the flour mixture to give them different flavors and then combine with different dipping sauces. To cut on time, I freeze them for 30mins and the pop in the oven at 415-425 until done, flipping once. They come out crispy and yummy each time.

This recipe is wonderful - you can always add more or less spice depending on taste. Several of the people "rating" this recipe aren't rating it at all - they're creating their own version of a completely different recipe not using flour. It has nothing to do with how these wings are made and if they don't want to use flour that's fine, but don't rate a recipe you haven't made or tasted.

This is the BEST! It's easy and healthier then frying. I love it. I make it all the time for my family not sure why it doesn't have 1000 5 star rating. Try it

I agree, flour isn't necessary. A little oil and a dry rub of spices is much more healthy. I bake them on a wire rack so they are not sitting in a pool of grease. I like mine crispy so I skip the butter. If you want them hotter add some Tabasco to the oil.

I always make hot wings this way...they are crispy, spicy and oh so good. It's the family favorite for any sporting event get together. I have never had a problem with flouring them and also use parchment paper to line my baking sheets for easy removal.
