Extra Crispy Oven Baked Maple Chipotle Chicken Wings {gluten-free}

Healthy Baked Chipotle Chicken Wings

Healthy and naturally gluten free, these baked chipotle chicken wings are extra crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside. No frying, no oil, no flour, or time intensive techniques here. Sharing my maple chipotle dipping sauce for these chicken wings too

For wings:

  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Maple Chipotle Sauce:

  • 2 canned chiles in adobo sauce minced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder


  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Dab chicken wings with a paper towel to get moisture off, then put in a large Ziploc bag. Add baking powder, salt, chipotle powder, and garlic powder. Shake to coat.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then put a wire rack on top. Place chicken wings on the wire rack, and bake for 20 minutes. Turn up heat to 400 degrees F, and bake for another 30 minutes, until crispy and browned.
  • Meanwhile, add sauce ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to combine and smooth.
  • Turn down to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes, until sauce has thickened. When wings are done, brush liberally with sauce and serve immediately.
