Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings Recipe
One of my favorite guilty pleasures is a tray full of chicken wings, so I was a bit surprised when I realized that I hadn’t yet shared any wings recipes on my site! (How has no one called me on that before now?)
I recently made these Cajun-Honey Chicken Kebabs and my daughter and I went crazy for the sweet and spicy combo, so I thought we could experiment a bit more – but instead of going the cajun route, we decided to make these wings a bit cowboy-inspired with a homemade combination of honey and chipotle sauce.
I used an indoor grill for this recipe (a la George Foreman) but you can easily make these honey chipotle chicken wings in the oven or on the BBQ… or even in an airfryer! No matter how you cook them, these wings will turn out sweet and spicy with a delicious kick and a satisfying crunch.
Be sure to read the directions well – note that I cook the chicken wings completely before coating in the sauce and then cooking for an additional few minutes. If you cook the wings in the sauce for the entire cooking time, you risk burning the honey (due to it’s natural sugar content) and ruining your wings.
Serve your wings with a side of creamy dressing – like ranch or blue cheese – to help cut the spice, and a whole stack of napkins!
Ingredients for Grilled Chicken Wings
½ cup honey
1 teaspoon POD & BEAN™ Burger Seasoning
2 Tablespoons hot water
½ cup POD & BEAN™ Chipotle Hot Sauce
3 pounds chicken wing drumettes
2 Tablespoons canola oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Tip: you can prepare the wings in advance up to the sauce step. Reheat for a couple minutes before tossing in the homemade sauce and then finishing on the grill.
