How to Cook Wingettes in the Oven
Wingettes don't have to be fried to be tasty.

Chicken wingettes are the two larger pieces you get when you snip a chicken wing into three pieces and discard the tip. Chicken wingettes are often breaded and deep fried, but you can prepare chicken wingettes in the oven if you are watching fat and calories. Roasting chicken wingettes brings out their natural flavor without adding the high glycemic index of flour or breadcrumbs.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Spray an even, light coat of nonstick cooking spray onto the bottom of the baking sheet.

Step 3

Place the wingettes in a bowl and drizzle olive over them. Salt and pepper to taste and toss them until they are well coated.

Step 4

Arrange the wingettes in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake the wingettes for 30 to 35 minutes, turning them several times to ensure that they cook evenly.

Step 6

Stick the very tip of an instant-read thermometer into the thickest wingette. They are done when the temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the wingettes with your favorite sauce and serve.
