Mike's Hot Honey Chicken Wing Recipe
- Total Time
- For the wings:
- 3 pounds chicken wings and drumettes
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried herbs or poultry seasoning
- *Note: You can decide your own seasonings in the flour and the measurements don’t need to be precise. Seasoned flour just tastes better than plain flour so make it your own if you want to!
- For the sauce:
- ½ cup Mike’s Hot Honey
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and a wire resting rack for extra crispy wings, if you have one. If you don’t have a wire rack, spray the aluminum foil with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour through poultry seasoning. Add the chicken wings and coat with the flour mixture. Shake off excess.
Arrange chicken on the wire rack or baking sheet, making sure to keep them at least ½ inch apart from one another. Use two baking sheets or two batches to avoid overcrowding. Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning once after about 20 minutes, until they reach 165℉.
While the chicken is cooking, heat the sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat until just combined and heated through.
Once wings are baked, transfer to a large bowl and toss with the warm MHH sauce. Serve wings with ranch, blue cheese dressing, hot honey mustard, hot honey bbq sauce and more Mike’s Hot Honey. Try pairing it with our Sweet and Spicy Margarita Recipe or Honey Paloma Cocktail
No matter which route you take in preparation for these delicious wings, one thing is certain; they'll be a hit. Making this delightful dish requires minimal ingredients and hardly any effort - mix your honey hot wing sauce, coat your chicken wings with it, and you'll be ready to enjoy. You can get creative and add extra seasonings or ingredients for a more elevated flavor experience.
Either way, you'll have an amazing meal that everyone will love. Let's get started on whipping up this crowd-pleaser.
What Kind of Wings Should You Use?You have two options when making hot honey chicken wings: crispy fried or baked. Both are delicious, but each has its advantages and disadvantages.
We recommend using crispy fried wings if you're looking for an easy way to make the best-tasting hot honey chicken wings possible. Fried wings will give you a crunchy texture perfect for dipping in our spicy hot honey sauce. Plus, they'll hold up better when tossed with the sauce than baked wings.
On the other hand, baking your hot honey chicken wings is a great option if health is your priority. Baking requires less fat and oil than frying, so you don't have to worry about added calories (not that you'll feel guilty about indulging in these delicious wings anyway). Baked wings are also a great way to get maximum flavor from your hot honey sauce.
No matter which type of wing you choose, ensure they are fresh and haven't been frozen. This will ensure your honey hot wings cook evenly and are as tender as possible.
What Side Dishes Would Pair Well with Honey Hot WingsWhen it comes to side dishes, the possibilities are endless. You can keep things classy and serve your hot honey chicken wings with fries, carrots, celery, or a simple salad. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, pair your wings with sweet potatoes for a delicious twist.
And don't forget about drinks. Our Cucumber Melon Margarita is the perfect way to cool down after an extra spicy helping of hot honey wings. Plus, it's quick and easy to make - all you need is cucumbers, melon, limes, tequila, and Mike's Hot Honey.
