    Preheat oven to 200°C. Drizzle the base of a roasting pan with olive oil. Combine the flour, paprika and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Place 1 chicken wing in the flour mixture and turn to coat. Place in the roasting pan. Repeat with the remaining chicken wings and flour mixture. Bake for 20 mins or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
