Wing Wednesdays: Hot Pepper Infused Honey Glazed Wings

It's Wing Wednesday! I'll begin the blog post by stating that of all the wings I've made in my lifetime, THESE were my favorite!

Recently, we enjoyed the National Cornbread Festival in South Pittsburg, TN. One of the vendors at the Festival was the Mojo Bee Company. One of their products for sale was a Hot Pepper Infused Honey. As soon as I saw the bottle (and tasted the honey!), I knew I was going to glaze some chicken wings.

One of the secrets to great baked wings is to cook them at a low temperature for at least an hour, increase the heat and let the wings crisp, and then glaze with the honey mixture.  Then, back into the oven for a little bit longer and you're in for a great treat!

2 lbs. chicken wings
kosher salt
black pepper
4 T. butter
1/2 cup Mojo Bee Company Hot Pepper Infused Honey

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick spray.

Place chicken wings in a single layer on baking sheet. Season well with salt and pepper.

Place in oven and let bake for an hour. Remove from oven and, using tongs, turn chicken wings over. Increase heat to 375 degrees F. Return wings to oven for 20 minutes.

Heat butter and honey together over low heat. Remove wings from oven and brush butter/honey mixture evenly over wings.

Return to oven for 5 minutes or so until glaze browns on the wings. Serve immediately.
