Conclusion: Use the oven to make crunchier
There are people, who believe that the secret to making chicken wings more or less crispy is undoubtedly in the oven. The fire is turned to the maximum so that they are crisp. The aim is that, when first baking them at a low temperature, the fat of the wings will melt and disappear partly so that the meat is juicier. Then, baking them on a high heat will make it possible to create that crunchy layer that is so much sought after.
In this sense, it is best to preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius before you start preparing the wings of chicken. Once they are introduced, they are roasted at 190 degrees centigrade for 10-12 minutes. After that time, turn over and continue cooking another 10-12 minutes until they are completely crispy and golden.
