Honey-Chipotle Hot Wings

I LOVE WINGS.  I’ve been craving wings for a couple of days now.  So, because it’s Monday and we ALWAYS watch Monday Night Football, I made wings for dinner!  I did not fry my wings… (feel free to fry yours if you want to)… I tried to keep this meal as healthy as possible, so I baked mine.  I served my wings with a yummy salad and a homemade cilantro lemon-lime dressing.  I really should have taken a picture of that dressing.  It was SO GOOD!  Enough chit-chat…

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 2 1/2 lbs organic chicken wings (pre-cut)
  • 1/4 – 1/2  cup honey

 

             Chipotle Seasoning Mix:
  • 2 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dry ground mustard

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.  In a small bowl, prepare the dry Chipotle Seasoning Mix.  Stir well to combine.
  2. Cover a 9×13 inch pan with foil.  This is for easier clean-up.  Coat the foil with olive oil or spray it with non-stick spray.
  3. Generously coat all sides of the wings with the Chipotle Seasoning Mix and put them in the pan.
  4. First, bake the wings for about 35 minutes.
  5. Next, baste the chicken wings with honey.  (I just drizzled honey on the tops of each wing with a spoon.)  Be careful…the honey will BURN on the bottom of the pan if you don’t keep an eye on it.  I learned this the hard way.  Thankfully my pan was lined with foil!
  6. Continue baking an additional 10 minutes at 400ºF.
  7. Remove from oven and coat one more time with honey.
  8. Serve hot and add a side of celery and carrots if desired!

My pictures aren’t the best tonight…I was lacking creativity.  Just know they taste amazing!
