Ingredients

Chicken Wings

  • 2 lbs chicken wings rinsed and pat dry
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 3 green onions chopped, optional

Honey Garlic Sauce

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 6 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp pepper or to taste

Instructions

  • 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 40 to 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.
  • Garnish with green onions, if preferred, and serve hot.

Notes

The sauce and the wings themselves will last in an airtight container for up to 4 days. To freeze just store the wings in an airtight container for up to 4 months, to reheat just thaw in the fridge over night before popping in the oven till heated through.
