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.

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

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.
