Spicy sweet and sour wingsI was in the mood for wings the other night and made up this recipe! I made sure to measure and pay attention to what I was doing so I could post it. My hubby and I couldn’t stop eating these! Note, I use frozen wings…I honestly feel that the fresh ones get dried up too much in the oven. What makes my baked wings so good? I bake them on a cookie drying rack…this helps them to crisp up all the way around!

1 Cup All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons of each; Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Salt
12 Frozen Chicken Wings (The small ones)
1/2 Cup Sweet and Sour Sauce (You can get it from your Chinese Restaurant or Click Here for a great homemade recipe)

1 Tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place chicken wings in a colander and rinse with cold water.
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients EXCEPT the red pepper flakes in a bowl.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place a cookie drying rack on top and spray with non stick spray. This step will help the wings to cook nicely and not stick to the drying rack.
  5. Toss the wings in the dry ingredients and place them on the cookie sheet/drying rack leaving 2 inches in between each piece.
  6. Cook the wings in the oven at 425 degrees for an hour to an hour and a half depending on how crispy you want them. Sometimes, I will check on them around the 45 minute mark and spray them with the cooking spray. This just helps them to crisp up a bit!
  7. Once they are completely cooked, lightly baste each wing in the Sweet and Sour Sauce and sprinkle the red pepper flakes. Use the pepper flakes to your liking. We like spicy, so I used a lot! I didn’t put hot stuff on the wings that the girls ate thought!

And just like that, you have the best spicy sweet and sour wings!! Just writing this makes me want to go home and make a batch! Serve with rice and a veggie to make it a complete meal!
