I don’t know about you but I love my chicken wings and you’ll find quite a few chicken wing recipes here on this blog of mine and I still have ideas for different flavors, so I’m pretty sure you’ll see more coming your way. I never used to make chicken wings at home but this is why I love blogging. It opened up my world of cooking and I’ve learned and created so many great recipes.
I’ve been wanting to try this flavor combination for a while now and finally did it. I can’t begin to tell you how good these wings are, sweet and garlicky and sticky, it’s all the things you’d want in a chicken wing. My wings are also good for you because I always bake my chicken wings and if you think they’re not as good because they won’t come out crispy, you’re wrong. I actually bake my wings at 425 F degrees for about 40 to 45 minutes and turn them around half way through and you end up with super crispy wings.
- 2 pounds chicken wings, rinsed and pat dry
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tbsp molasses
- 3 tbsp honey
- 6 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- salt and pepper for seasoning chicken
- If your chicken wings are whole, cut them into 3 pieces at the joints and discard wing tips.
- Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Salt and pepper the wings and then place them on the baking sheet.
- Bake them for 45 min to an hour depending on how crispy you want them.
- Mix the rest of the ingredients together. Pour the mixture in a small saucepan and over medium heat bring the sauce to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until mixture reduces and thickens, about 5 minutes, it should reduce to about half.
- Place the wings in a bowl and drizzle the sauce over the wings. Toss the wings in the bowl until each wing is fully coated.
