    Baked Asian Glazed Chicken Wings

    Party season is my favorite season – am I right? Don’t get me wrong, it can be a stressful time of year with the endless to-do’s, shopping lists and holidays to host but there is just something wonderful about the craziness of it all!

    Spicy Baked Asian Glazed Chicken Wings Recipe

    Since we literally just bought a house for the purpose of entertaining friends and family (ok that wasn’t the only reason but it was a huge deciding factor), I couldn’t be more excited to be hosting various holidays and parties this holiday season.

    Glazing Chicken Wings

    While chicken wings are pretty much a hit any day of the week, I especially love serving them at cocktail parties. Sweet, crispy, sticky and slightly spicy, these protein-packed baked chicken wings are always a nice way to round out the appetizer table.

    If you’ve never tried baking chicken wings, you won’t believe how crispy and delicious they turn out. Since the holiday season is full of indulgences, it’s nice to offer a lighter version of a crowd-pleasing favorite.

    For maximum flavor, I brush the wings with an Asian glaze made of hoisin, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and other items you probably already have on hand in your well-stocked pantry.
