My 6-year-old loves chicken wings. He asks me to make them constantly. For a long time I had a difficult time finding organic chicken wings, although recently I’ve seen them more often (now if only I could get my local store to carry organic chicken feet…). This week we found the wings, so I agreed to make a batch.
We frequently eat our chicken wings brined or with BBQ sauce, but I this time I decided to try something different and make a honey mustard glaze. It turned out wonderfully. The only problem, according to my family, was that I didn’t make enough extra glaze that everyone could have an abundant amount of it to use as a dipping sauce.
Here’s how I made them:
Honey Mustard Chicken Wings Recipe
3 pounds Chicken Wings
½ cup Mustard
¼ cup Honey
1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
¼-½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small saucepan, mix together mustard, honey, vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Stir over medium-low heat until thoroughly combined.
Lay out chicken wings on a rack inside a baking dish (this isn’t necessary, but it helps them to get crunchier on all sides, otherwise you’ll end up with a moist, sticky wing – which can also be great, but is different than what my boys want).
Spoon the glaze over the chicken wings. You can also dip the wings into the glaze so it coats both sides, if you wish.
Place wings in oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Baste wings with glaze mixture, return to oven, and cook for another 20 minutes, or until they reach your desired crispness.
Serve and enjoy.
