For tailgates, Sunday suppers or a mid-week meal, wings are always a crowd-pleaser

Chicken wings are a fan favorite, especially during tailgate season. The secret to great chicken wings is to cook them on really high heat in the oven. 
5 pounds chicken wings, cut into drums and flats
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons baking powder
Preheat oven to 275 degrees.  
Pat chicken wings dry with a paper towel. 
Toss wings with salt, pepper and baking powder.  
Place onto a baking rack nestled onto a baking sheet with sides (to prevent juices dripping out). 5 pounds of wings will fill two baking sheets.
Bake at 275 degrees for 25 minutes on a low oven rack. 
Crank up the heat to 425 degrees and move wings to center of oven. Bake for 45 minutes or until wings are crispy and golden.
