How long do you bake buffalo wings in the oven?

For this baked buffalo wings recipe, there are two steps for cooking. First, you’ll bake them at 250° for about 30 minutes. Then you’ll raise the oven temperature to 425° and bake them for another 45 minutes. I found that this is the best way to get them super crispy, which is how I prefer them!

Do you cover baked chicken wings in the oven?

I did not cover the buffalo wings while baking them. They still stayed plenty moist, while the skin managed to get really crispy.
