What are your favorite wing to eat? Drums or flats?

Flats are definitely my favorite and I love that my boyfriend will eat the drums just so I can have all the flats when we order wings or make them at home.

Today's Hot Honey Wings are super simple to make and so addicting!

They're baked in the oven, the glaze is just two ingredients if you use store bought and they're ready in 45 minutes. 

Serve them for dinner with a side, an appetizer for your next party or gathering or when you're craving a sweet and savory snack.

Recipe tips:


  • Flour helps absorb any moisture on the outside of the chicken wing so they become crisp and delicious! 
  • Cornstarch dries out the surface of the chicken wing just slightly more than flour– again, we want super crunchy chicken wings! 
  • Butter helps create a sauce to coat the chicken wings. I’m using salted butter so if you are using unsalted, make sure to add a pinch of salt to your sauce. 
  • I’m using Mike’s Hot Honey but you can also make homemade hot honey if you don’t have any on hand. Place ½ cup of honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of hot sauce or 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes and stir to combine. Bring to a bubble– about 3 minutes and then remove from the heat. Allow the honey to cool and then store it in the fridge until ready to use.

Baked Hot Honey Chicken Wings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken wings, flats and drums
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) butter
  • ¼ cup hot honey (see notes)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and set a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel and then place them in a large bowl with the flour, cornstarch and salt. Toss to coat.
  3. Shake off any excess flour and place the chicken wings on the wire rack.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip the chicken wings and then bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  5. While the chicken wings bake, melt the butter and hot honey in a large microwave safe bowl. Whisk to combine.
  6. Add the chicken wings to the bowl and toss them in the honey butter.
  7. Then, place the chicken wings back on the wire rack and broil for 2-3 minutes or until they are browned and crisp. Be careful, they can burn quickly!
  8. Serve immediately.
