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.

    These look wonderful but did I miss something? Your recipe states 1 hour cook time but it reads 25-30 minute bake with additional 5 minutes to set the glaze.

      Sorry about that – that was a type-o. It’s only 30-35 minutes cook time!!

    I get wings cravings just about every other month and it’s pretty much all I can think about eating all day long, it’s bad, haha. Next time I’m making these!

    Homemade wings are so good and so much better for you than getting them out! I can’t wait to try these at home! They’ll be gone in minutes, I just know it. :)

    I love baking my chicken wings. They always turn out crispy and you don’t have to deal with the grossness of frying. Plus who doesn’t want more Tabasco sauce in their lives?

      Seriously – why haven’t I been baking wings forever?? I never made them because I assumed they would be soggy sacks.
