Whenever I make wings, I bake them in the oven instead of frying.   My family loves them and I hope you will too.

4# or 5# bag disjointed chicken wings (small better)
Garlic Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, parsley, seasoned salt, seasoned pepper (anything you like)
Hot sauce
Cooking Spray (Pam)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a VERY large cookie sheet, using a spray, lightly cover the pan  and then place all the
chicken wings leaving little space between each. Lightly spray the wings with the spray so seasonings will stick and
wings will crunch better.
According to your taste, sprinkle desired seasonings on top of the wings. I prefer seasoned pepper, garlic salt,  crushed
 parsley leaves, a touch of cayenne pepper and anything else I have in the cupboard.  Do your own thing--experiment!

Bake in the oven for at least 30 minutes. Check them periodically to be sure they are beginning to brown. 
Bake an additional 30 minutes, at which time, you remove the pan and using a metal spatula loosen the wings and turn them over.
Return the pan to the oven for another 30 minutes. This is where the eye is better to discern than the clock. The wings should
begin to look crunchy and brown on top as well as bottom. IF NEEDED, turn them over again and return to the oven when
 you know they are just about ready and put the broiler on (WATCHING CAREFULLY) and brown the tops of the wings.

You may need to use the metal spatula again to remove them. Place them on another cookie sheet and cover with paper
 towels to absorb the grease. Although these are still high in fat, you do NOT have the additional fat that they are normally
 fried in.
(Place in a microwave-save bowl and toss
them to get the flavor you desire.)
If you desire to have a sauce to dip them in, mix about 6 – 10 ounces of a Louisiana  hot sauce along with 1 stick of melted  margarine. Heat together in the microwave and stir... You may pour this on top of your wings or use the sauce to dip them  into. Either way... or just plain... you will have the best tasting "low fat" wings ever.
