how to make crispy baked salt and vinegar wings:
Start by placing chicken wings into a large zip top bag and add 1 cup apple cider vinegar. Allow to marinate for 2-4 hours.
Into a large bowl, add in corn starch, flour, garlic powder and paprika. Sprinkle chicken wings liberally with salt.
Add chicken wings to bowl and toss to combine, fully coating the wings.
Place aluminum foil onto cookie sheet and place a wire rack inside. Spray rack with cooking spray.
Arrange wings onto wire rack and spray with cooking spray.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 25 minutes, flip, spray with cooking spray and place back into the oven for 25 more minutes. Turn on broiler to high and bake wings until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes, flipping half way through.
Can I fry these salt and vinegar chicken wings?
Yes, you certainly can. Add enough oil to fill a large heavy sauté pan about halfway up the sides. Heat oil over medium-high until it registers 350˚F to 375˚F on a thermometer.
Add chicken to hot oil in batches. Fry until golden brown and internal temperature registers 165 degrees F.
Preheat air fryer to 375°F Place wings into air fryer basket and air fry for 20 minutes. turn up the heat to 400°F, flip the wings, and continue to cook for 5-10 minutes or until desired crispiness is reached.

Argo® Corn Starch. This is my #1 more important tip. It truly makes for the crispiest chicken, even when baked.
Pat dry your chicken before tossing in your corn starch mixture.
Bake the wings at high heat. I prefer 425 degrees F. It ensures a crispy, airy texture while keeping the chicken moist.
