Love chicken wings? Of course you do!  Here’s a fantastic way of making chicken wings at home. First of all, forget about frying, parboiling or any other crazy gyrations you may thing you need to go through to serve a plateful of wings. For this chicken wings recipe, you’ll only need an oven and my special sauce!

You want to let the wings bake for 20 minutes in your oven preheated to 220°c. In the meantime, you can prepare my special Sweet and Spicy sauce. Once the wings are done, just toss them in the sauce and put them back in the oven to bake for an additional 4-5 minutes. (This final stage is important for crisping!) The broiling really seals the sauce into the wings and creates that crunchy skin we all know and love.

These wings are spicy, crunchy and saucy on the outside:tender, meaty and luscious on the inside. Take a bit and you get the sweetness of the honey and then a layer down comes the spiciness from the mix. This recipe makes enough for 6. So if you’re having a bigger crowd coming over then you can simply adjust your portions accordingly. Hope you give these easy baked chicken wings a try!
