Yup, I promised you some wings and here they are! Nope, they are not deep-fried so if that is what you are after, bummer. However, these are dang crispy if you follow my super-duper-top-secret-crispness-factor technique.

Nope, no special equipment needed, just grab the cooling racks, knock the rust off of them and prepare to indulge.

Sweet-n-Tangy Baked Honey Mustard Wings
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup yellow mustard
2 Tablespoon orange juice
1 large clove garlic, minced
2-3 lbs of chicken wings

1. Combine honey through garlic in a bowl and whisk until combined. Pour into a storage bag, add chicken and marinate a minimum of 30 minutes.  The longer you can marinade the better and overnight is ideal for optimal flavor.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and prepare the baking sheet by placing a cooling rack on it (it helps to crisp the skin).

3. Spray the cooling rack with the cooking spray. Remove the wings from the bag and season with the salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve with carrots, celery and ranch or blue cheese dressing.

This looks yummy. I love that it’s healthier than the standard chicken wing recipe. How much chicken do you use?

I’m loving the “easy” factor. And also some of my favorite flavors on earth, in a wing. Adding to shopping list!

I preferred my wings not deep-fried, so these are right up my alley. Nice sweet & tangy flavor.

As much as I love the deep-fried wings, or deep-fried anything for that matter, it does make a huge mess and the house smells for days afterwards. So nice to have your baked option, now! These will be making an appearance in our house very soon.

So delicious… but do need to flip them halfway through the baking so both sides get nice and crisp. I broiled them for 2 minutes at the end… yummy! :) Homemade blue cheese made them even better. I will definitely be making these again… thank you for the great recipe!

Hi Heather, if you ball them on a rack, they should not need flipping
