Recipe: Your In-Depth Chicken Wing Guide

image_3image_4Prepping the Wings: Sometimes you’ll be able to find wings, at your supermarket, that are already divided into drumettes and wingettes.  If not, yhou’ll need a heavy knife and a cutting board.  The cut points are less apparent then you might think.  Cut along the bottom of the drumette and cut the inside joint between the wingette and the wing tip.  And be careful, knives hurt.

Pre-heat your oven  to 400 degrees when you are ready to cook.

Ready for the Oven: Lay out some parchment paper on a baking pan with an edge, as the skin will drip some fat into the pan.  Lay the wings out on the same side down.  You will cook the wings for twenty minutes on one side and 15 on the other.  Keeping them all on the same side to start will help you to keep track of what is flipped and what isn’t.

Take the wings out and toss them in your favorite sauce.


Honey Chipotle Sauce:


  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Chipotle Sauce

In a microwave safe bowl add the honey and chipotle and microwave for 60 seconds.  Toss wings in sauce once they are cooked.
