How to make baked keto wings:

Baking is a different process in order to get the skin super crispy. You want to really pat dry your wings in this scenario. Not to mention what you bake on is a factor as well.
A pan with a rack is your best option. That way the baked chicken wings are suspended so that the fat drips down and the heat can crisp up each side of the chicken.
Comparatively, in a sheet pan the tops will crisp. But the bottom will remain in the chicken fat taking away the crispiness from the opposite side. To add, when tossed into the sauce the juices will come with it making the skin softer.
A great way to bake keto wings is on a high setting. About 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. They aren’t thick like legs or thighs so as the inside will be done in a short amount of time. And the high temperature gets the skin nice and crispy in the process.
