Baked chicken wings with baking soda
Can you use baking powder on chicken? Baking powder , not to be mistaken with baking soda , is a leavening agent usually used in baked goods such as cookies and cakes. It’s a mixture of sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar and cornstarch. When mixed with salt and coated on chicken it dries out the skin, leaving it crisp and crunchy.
