These crispy Baked Honey Garlic Chicken Wings are a healthier alternative to fried wings and make the perfect game day snack.
For as long as I can recall, chicken wings go hand in hand with football and game day snacking. That’s why I decided to make a recipe that was baked, instead of fried and dipped in butter without losing the flavor. These Baked Honey Garlic Chicken Wings did not disappoint.
In fact, I’ve made this recipe two times in the last several weeks. Once, so that I can share them here with all of you and the second time because my husband saw these pictures and wanted to know when I made these wings because he never got any since he was away on business.
I have to say I didn’t mind making them again because they literally take 5 minutes to throw together because there are only 3 ingredients: chicken wings, honey and garlic powder. That’s it!
I like to buy the wingettes; which are chicken wings that already have the arm or wing tip removed. The wing itself is cut in half at the joint whether they’re frozen or fresh.
If they are frozen, please allow them to defrost in the refrigerator before making this recipe and dry them off with paper towels before adding the honey and garlic powder so it sticks to the wings.
How do you make baked chicken wings?
All you have to do is add the wings to a bowl; then add honey and garlic powder. Mix it well coating the wings; then place on an old baking sheet or a ceramic-type pan.
I don’t recommend using foil as it will definitely stick to the wings while they’re cooking and you’ll wind up pulling foil out of each one before you get to eat it. Not fun.
Your pan will need to be soaked after cooking, but trust me it’s worth the cleanup. At only 53 calories each, these Baked Honey Garlic Chicken Wings are a healthier option for game day snacking.~Enjoy!
