The bake time for wings depends on your oven temperature, which will be determined in part by how you prepped your chicken wings. Oven-baked wings with sauce or a marinade require a lower baking temperature to keep the sauce from burning, while dry-rubbed wings are better for higher oven temperatures because using a shorter burst of heat on the meat creates crispier wings.
In general, the amount of time to bake wings is:
- 60 minutes at 350 degrees
- 50 minutes at 375 degrees
- 40 minutes at 400 degrees
- 30 minutes at 425 degrees
Our recommended method is to dry-rub your chicken wings, then bake them at 400 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, turning them over part way through to make sure that they turn out crispy on both sides.
