If you’re looking for a delicious game day appetizer this winter, try these Baked Honey Mustard Chicken Wings!
I love a great bowl of wings while watching sports. Okay… actually I don’t need an excuse to make great wings. I’ll eat them any time I can get them.
You don’t have to bust out the fryer to make great wings. These baked honey mustard wings are easy to make and have great flavor. They are also excellent for someone who doesn’t love spicy food.
The key to this recipe is to bake the wings first at 375 degrees F.~ tossed with just oil, salt, and pepper.
After the wings bake for 35 minutes or so they will be cooked through.
Then toss the wings with the honey mustard sauce and return them to the baking sheet.
Return them to the oven for another 10 minutes or so and the sauce will caramelize beautifully on the wings.
Gotta love these!
When the wings come out of the oven, I recommend tossing them a second time in any leftover sauce and then serving them immediately!
If you’re feeling fancy, you can garnish these with some fresh chives, but you can also just serve them without any garnish.
