Barbecued chicken wings are the perfect dish for backyard parties and family get-together. And you don’t really have to deal with the oil or frying these barbeque chicken wings in the pan or even on the grill. You can still get delectable and crispy wings in the oven. But it takes a good combination of temperature and timing to do so. The common temperature to use is 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Next question is this.

It takes 40 minutes to bake bbq chicken wings in the oven at 400 degrees. The result will be a succulent and tender meat wrapped up in a crispy coating. If you are not a fan of crunchy coating, reduce the cooking time by just a couple of minutes. Do not go more than that as you risk getting a raw chicken meat.
You can cook bbq chicken wings in the oven at several temperatures. If the guests won’t come any time soon, you can indulge in slow cooking of the wings at 300 degrees which will take 45 minutes for each side. At 350 F, each side will require 35 minutes to become brown and tender. If crispy texture is what drives you crazy about chicken wings, go for 425 degrees. In 35 minutes, the wing coating will get extra crunchy while the meat will be soft and mouthwatering tasty. And no, the meat will not get dry from being exposed to 425 degrees. The most important thing is to bake the wings in strict accordance with the recipe directions. Flip them over timely and do not keep them in the oven for longer than recommended.
It heavily depends on your family’s and guests’ preferences to decide which temperature is best. If you guys are not fans of crunchy food, bake the wings at 350 degrees. If you like the crispy part more than anything else in your barbeque chicken wings, cook them at 400 or 425 degrees. We prefer the 400 degree option as it helps us get the best of both worlds – crunchiness and tenderness in the bbq chicken wings.
This is the recipe to cook bbq chicken wings.
You can help the wings cook faster by exposing them to a high temperature. We recommend you, though, not to exceed 425 degrees Fahrenheit as it can make the meat dry and chewy and burn the barbecued sauce. Keep in mind that with a higher temperature and a shortened cooking time, you can get an impressively crispy coating on your wings. So if you are not into crunchy chicken wings, go for a longer cooking time. After all, you will just need to wait for 20 more minutes, so it’s not a big deal.
