Honey Mustard Chicken Wings – chicken wings tossed in an easy homemade honey mustard sauce and baked until golden brown. Sweet, spicy, and perfect for football season!
Hi guys! Good week to be a Louisiana football fan living in Texas, huh?
I wanted to get this recipe up today so you have time to include it in this weekend’s football plans. Honey Mustard Chicken Wings, you guys. They’re a great option if maybe you aren’t a huge fan of buffalo wings or just want a change.
They are sweet and spicy and turn out so crispy even though they aren’t fried! Plus, they are really easy and only use simple ingredients.
How To Make Honey Mustard Chicken Wings
This Honey Mustard Chicken Wings recipe is so simple and so quick to put together! I buy the already cut wing portions but feel free to buy drumettes or the whole wings and cut them yourself. Whatever you prefer.
The sauce is a mixture of melted butter, spicy mustard, honey, fresh lemon juice, and ground turmeric. That gets stirred together in a saucepan until it boils and then you toss the wings in the sauce until they are all coated. Transfer the wings over to a rimmed baking sheet and then they get baked until they are golden and crispy, about 35 minutes.
Yes, they take awhile to bake but that’s how you get that crispy crunch that we all love with wings!
Do You Have to Add Turmeric?
No, the turmeric is 100% just for color. If you leave it out, the chicken wings won’t be yellow like mine though.
You can’t taste it, no one will know it’s there, it’s totally fine to leave it out if you don’t want super yellow wings. I just think the yellow really makes them look like honey mustard chicken wings.
Can You Use Frozen Chicken Wings?
Yes, you could definitely use frozen chicken wings but make sure you thaw them completely in the fridge before you start this recipe.
