Sticky Honey Soy Baked Wings

Okay folks, we are on the downward stretch to Super Bowl Sunday.  The date is set, teams are picked, commercials are scheduled, Bruno Mars is getting ready to perform the half time (yay!) and the menus are being finalized!  No matter what team you're rooting for, one thing can be agreed upon by both Broncos and Seahawks fans; food is a must for the big day.  Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest food consumption day of the year?  So, needless to say, food plays a huge role on the big game day.

What food is a must at your game day spread?  Pig in a blanket, nachos, salsa, guacamole, chili, wings?  There are tons of foods to choose from; the hard part is narrowing down the options and finalizing the menu.  To me, wings are one of those things that go hand in hand with football.  They are a staple to any game day celebration.
We are definitely wing fans at my house.  We love any and everything involving wings.  Now I must say, I'm a traditional hot person myself, but there are times where I like to change things up and try new flavors.  Mango habanero, garlic parmesan, lemon pepper, and the list goes on; I'll try most flavors at least once.  What about you?  Do you like different wing flavors?  If so, then I've got some wings for you.  Honey soy baked wings.  These were so good that me and my husband were literally licking the plate clean to ensure we had every bit of that sticky sweet sauce!
These wings, even though baked, are crisped to perfection.  They are tossed in a combination of olive oil, salt and pepper and then baked.  Once removed from the oven they are tossed is a sticky, sweet and slightly salty sauce.  It's just the right amount of sweet and salty and the flavors work together wonderfully.  These are oh. so. good.  All the deliciousness of a traditional wing, but baked, so that means you can eat twice as many with half the guilt!  These are so easy to make and require very few ingredients, so be sure to add these to your spread.  You and your guests will be so glad you did. 

Sticky Honey Soy Baked Wings

12 Chicken wings
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tsp salt
1 Tsp pepper

For the sauce-
2 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 Clove garlic, minced
2 Tsp soy sauce
3-4 Tbsp honey
Pinch red pepper flakes

Chopped green onions, for garnish, optional


Preheat oven to 375.

Place a wired rack on a rimmed baking sheet and set aside.

Place wings, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss to coat.  Place the coated wings on a wired rack and place in a preheated oven.  Bake for 45-55 minutes, turning half way through, until very crispy.

When the wings have about 10 minutes left, start working on the sauce.  Place butter in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat.  Once the butter is melted, add the garlic and saut√© until fragrant, about 45 seconds.  Add the soy sauce, honey and red pepper flakes and stir to combine.  Allow the mixture to cook until slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes.  Pour sauce in a medium bowl, add wings and toss to coat.

Transfer wings to a shallow bowl or serving dish and garnish with green onions.  Serve immediately.
