These baked chicken wings deliver a nice little kick! They are moist and sticky and you will feel an explosion of flavors in your mouth when you bite into them. They are sweet, tangy and spicy all at the same time.
You can serve these baked chicken wings as an appetizer or a main meal if you would prefer. Just make sure to serve them with tons of napkins and be prepared to see them disappear very quickly!
This is what you are going to need for these outstanding baked chicken wings:
12 chicken wings
2 TBS olive oil
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. black pepper
¼ cup honey
1 TBS. lime zest
2 TBS. lime juice
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. sesame oil
½ tsp. red chili flakes — optional
Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200C) and line a roasting pan with aluminum foil.
Cut the wings in three parts. Save the tips for future use – I like to freeze them and use them for making chicken stock.
Place the flat part and the drumette in your roasting pan. Do not pile them up. Work in batches if you have to. Drizzle the wings with the olive oil, salt and pepper. With clean hands, roll the wings around so that they are all completely coated. Place the roasting pan in the oven for 30 minutes.
While the wings are roasting, mix together the honey, lime zest, lime juice, garlic powder, sesame oil and chili flakes if using. Set aside.
Remove the wings from the oven after 30 minutes and glaze the wings with a thin layer of the honey – on both sides. Return to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove them again and re-glaze only the top of the wings with the remaining honey. Return to the oven and bake for an extra 5 minutes.
Serve with lots of napkins and enjoy!
