Best type of pan for baked chicken wings?

Is it better to put chicken wings on a baking sheet or on a rack in a roasting pan?

I use a baking sheet if I am cooking them indoors. However, I don't see any reason why a rack in a roasting pan wouldn't work.

I just baked some using a baking sheet and they seemed to come out okay.

I have used both ways and baking sheet to me works better, takes less time as they seem to cook them fastest and crisp up, the roasting pan seemed to take longer and they didnt crisp up as well as the baking sheet ones.

I use a half sheet pan lined with foil treated with cooking spray to ease cleanup.

It's a pretty heavy weight one bought at Sam's Club called Bakers and Chefs. Made in USA if that matters to you. Best sheet pans I've ever owned.

Thanks so much for the info. I appreciate hearing about which brands of cookware work best for people because it lessens the likelihood of returns!

Half sheet pans are everywhere and fairly standard in construction. The cheapest source is a restaurant supply store. You should be able to get one for $5 to $7.

Thanks Andy. Is a half sheet pan the same as a cookie sheet? I've been using a cookie sheet from Bed Bath made by USA Pan.
