"This is more of a method than a recipe, but this is how I always make wings now. I find boiling them first helps get rid of more of the fat, and they get crispier in the oven."

"Mmmmmmm....Bar wings at home! We've been looking for a recipe for crispy wings, and this is it! The added bonus is fat IS actually drawn out instead of being added through deep-frying. We enjoyed them so much that we are whipping up another batch today. I'd like to try them with buffalo sauce or Jack Daniel's sauce too. Thank you so much for sharing this...it will be our "go to"
recipe for wings. We eat them at least once a week, so this is a real treasure."
"This was very good. My biggest regret is that I didn't make a double or even quadruple batch. I'm not much of a wing connoisseur - I just eat them when I get a chance; and since I'm an intermediate cook, I don't think I'd ever prepared wings before this. I thought the same thing as in the description: this is more of a method than a recipe; but it's an effective method, I think. I don't think I've ever used my broiler (don't know why I'm leery of using it). It gives me a choice of high and low, and I chose "high". I peeked at the wings at 5 minutes, and opted to go the full 10 minutes on each side. Aside from that, I made it exactly as written. I agree that the boiling and then the broiling get rid of a lot of fat. (I, too, used parchment paper in the oven, on top of a jelly-roll pan). I patted the wings with paper towels to remove any excess grease, as suggested, and there was very little left to remove. The wings were beautifully browned and crispy. One minor complaint is that the amount of barbecue sauce was a little too much, I thought - 1/3 cup would probably be plenty. Oh, and this really should be called "Simple Boil and Broil [not Bake] Crispy Chicken Wings". But overall, this is a great, easy recipe, and I hope I make it again soon - thanks!"
"This method worked perfectly for me. With my oven, I needed about 10 minutes per side to get the wings crispy. I used some honey BBQ sauce with added Tabasco sauce for a little heat. Very good."
"They came out of the oven perfect."
"THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I love chicken wings...when crispy and whole; like the restaurants...and I have tried every recipe I could find to make them "right". I always ended up with wings that were torn apart because they stuck to the frying pan or baking pan or are "soft" (not crispy) wings because I didn't want to leave them too long enough because they would stick. I'm happy to say that your method is amazing(ly simple)!!!! Tonight I made the best wings ever!!! I made honey garlic wings but the method works for any type of wings you could imagine. PS...this is my FIRST review of any recipe on any site EVER..but so worth it!!!!!"
"I broiled mine for quite a while turning once and then brushed alittle BBQ sauce on them. After putting them back in the oven on a lower rack for 5-10 minutes, they came out tasting like they had been deep fried and prepared at a sports bar! Crispy and juicy!!!!! Such a simple idea with amazing results! Thanks!"
"Awwwwesome ;-)) sprinkled with seas salt, garlic sprinkle...yummmmmyy!!! always wondered how to keep my wings juicy inside and crispy outside, no frying. My kids are going to give Mommy big hugs. They love chicken wings ;-))"
"I thought this worked out real well, my only problem was I should have used a lower rack when I broiled them. at 5 min the Teriyaki Sauce started to burn and yes I set the smoke alarm off too."
"It was a bit of work to boil them first but very much worth it. Very tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. I used a hot wing sauce on some and a sweet bbq on the rest. Everyone was happy. Making them this weekend for friends I should get rave reviews from them!!!! Thanks for sharing!"
"Thank You sooo much for this recipe!!! My family really enjoyed them.After they were done, I put them back in the oven with some honey smokehouse Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce....... cooked to perfection!! I will be using this recipe often!!!!! :)"
"I boiled the chicken wings as instructed and after transferring the boiled chicken to a broiler pan I seasoned the chicken with a premixed spice blend and broiled on high for 5 minutes, turned the wings and seasoned again and cooked another 5 minutes. I felt that longer than 5 minutes would have been too long. The chicken was crispy and delicious. I will be making this again. Thanks Seamor for posting this recipe method"
"Turned out really crispy and wonderful! Ready for any sauce to be applied after the broiling. My only mistake was putting the wings flat on a cookie sheet instead of on a broiling pan and I set off the smoke alarms. :-) But I think if I'd used a broiling pan it would have been just fine."
