  • 1/2 tbsp Garlic Powder

For the wings

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  • Place wings on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet or a baking sheet with a cooling rack.
  • Cook the wings in the oven for 20-25 minutes per side (depends on how crispy you'd like them)

For the sauce

  • Add all ingredients to a small bowl.
  • Whisk to incorporate.

Finish the dish
