Crispy Baked Honey-Soy Wings

My husband loves chicken wings.  Until we met, I was never a big wing person…but now, give me a good glaze over crispy wings and I’ll dig right in! So I had to recreate that same crispy texture as a healthier baked version and this recipe was a success! My husband loved these and you can totally customize your own glaze and even use a hot sauce (I usually combine 1/4 cup Frank’s red hot sauce with 1 tablespoon unsalted butter and just heat until butter melts…then toss in the wings).  I wanted to try a sweeter glaze and this honey soy combo is pretty darn awesome.

Ingredients

1 pound chicken wings

1/3 cup brown rice flour (gluten-free or regular all-purpose flour also works)

sauce:

1/4 cup honey

2 1/2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

1 clove garlic, minced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and place a grill rack over it (no grill rack, no problem, works fine right on parchment paper but grill rack allows for any excess oil to drip right off).
  3. Rinse and dry wings.  Pour flour into a large ziplock bag.
  4. place wings into ziplock bag and shake well to coat the wings.
  5. In a bowl, combine sauce ingredients and whisk well.
  6. Place wings in the grill rack and bake for 30 minutes, turning once.
  7. Remove wings and baste each with the glaze on both sides.  Set directly on parchment paper and bake an additional 10 minutes.
