Honey Glazed Chicken Wings are baked, then smothered with a delicious sweet honey glaze. Simple baked chicken wings recipe are literally finger-lickin’ good!
These baked chicken wings are crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. The simple, 4-ingredient glaze adds an array of flavors- smoky, sweet and just enough spice to make your taste buds happy.
How long to bake chicken wings in the oven
Chicken wings will take about 40-45 minutes to bake in the oven. When your meat thermometer reaches 165º in the thickest part of the meat, then you can know it is cooked.
My all-time favorite meat thermometer is the Thermapen. It’s super fast and incredibly durable. Another great meat thermometer is the ThermoPop which is a more basic version that works just as well!
How do you make honey glaze?
To make the honey glaze, you combine honey, soy sauce, hot sauce (if you like it spicy) and your favorite barbecue sauce in a mixing bowl. That’s it!
When your chicken wings are done baking, you just transfer them in a medium sized bowl and pour the glaze on top of them. So easy!
Can baked chicken wings be pink?
The only real indicator of when chicken is fully cooked is temperature. When your meat thermometer reaches 165º in the thickest part of the meat, then you can know it is cooked. Sometimes, the meat near the bone is slightly pink. As long as the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F, the meat is done.

How to make Honey Glazed Chicken Wings
To make chicken wings, you start by rinsing chicken wings and pat them mostly dry.
Put your flour, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a 1-gallon bag, and shake it up to make sure it’s mixed. Add in the chicken wings and shake well to coat them.
Chill Chicken Wings
Next, spread wings on a foil-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Bake Chicken Wings
After they’re done in the fridge, brush melted butter on wings and bake for 40-45 minutes, until wings are lightly browned and a meat thermometer registers 165° F. Switch oven to broil and broil for 2-3 minutes, until outside of wings look more toasted.
Glaze Chicken Wings
In a bowl, stir together the honey, soy sauce, your favorite store-bought barbecue sauce and the hot sauce.
Lastly, put the wings to a medium sized bowl and pour glaze on top, stirring until coated.
Serve with a side of ranch dressing.
