    Do you love ordering fried chicken wings in restaurants or a sports bar but never think to make them at home because you don’t have a deep fryer?

    Making Chicken Wing Glaze

    Let me tell you – these chicken wings are crunchy, crispy and just as delicious as deep-fried if you ask me!

    To make chicken wings at home, you simply drizzle with a little oil then bake them until crispy and crunchy.

    For added flavor, I tossed the baked chicken wings in a sweet, sticky and slightly spicy glaze made with honey and hot sauce. Want to dial up the heat? Simply add more hot sauce or dial down the honey.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What temperature should chicken wings be baked at?

    Baking chicken wings at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes will get them to crisp up. If you need them crispier than baking will do I’d suggest running them under a broiler. That will make them really crispy!

    How do you make spicy wings?

    Want to dial up the heat on these wings? Simply add more hot sauce to give them an extra kick or dial down the honey.

    Does canola oil have to be used to make wings?

    No. Canola oil does not have to be used. You can use vegetable oil or olive oil and achieve the same result.

    1. Delicious wings! For the chipotle sauce, I chopped up some canned chipotles and added the adobo into the mix. Turned out spicy, smokey, sweet, and tasty! Thanks for the recipe!
