2. Ingredients for Honey-Garlic Baked Chicken Wings

  • 2 lb. chicken wings
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • nonstick cooking spray

3. Directions:

3.1 Prep

Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels.

Place the honey, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a large mixing bowl. Grate or press the garlic cloves into the mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.

Place the chicken wings in the mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, toss the wings to coat in the honey-garlic glaze.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1-12 hours.

3.2 Preheat

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Remove the marinated chicken wings from the refrigerator.

3.3 Prep

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Cover the rack with another sheet of foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Use a knife to poke holes all over the foil.

Use a pair of kitchen tongs to lift each chicken wing from the bowl, allowing the excess marinade to drip off, and transfer to the foil-covered wire rack. Do not discard the leftover marinade.

3.4 Oven

Bake the chicken wings on middle rack of oven until browned and crisp, 40-45 minutes.

3.5 Stove

Pour the leftover marinade into a small skillet set over medium heat. Bring the marinade to a boil, whisking constantly.

Boil the marinade, whisking occasionally, until it is reduced to about 1/3 cup, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat. The marinade will thicken slightly as it cools.

3.6 Check

Check to see that chicken wings are done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.

3.7 Serve

Brush the tops of the chicken wings with the marinade. Transfer the chicken wings to a plate and serve.
