Crispy Baked Suya Wings

This is the crispiest and spiciest chicken I’ve had in a while. To achieve the level of crispiness, we will be using baking powder. Yes BAKING POWDER. This Is a trick I picked up from many nights of watching food shows and it has never failed me. To cown it off, we will toss the crispy wings in a sweet and spicy suya sauce! I know you are already licking your fingers.
