Spicy Honey Wings

A little sweet. A little heat. Those are the keys to a great wing sauce. These spicy honey wings have the perfect combination of both. Even with my Fire-Eater rub and a healthy dose of hot sauce, they’re plenty sweet. Perfect for dipping in a bowl of cold Ranch or blue cheese dressing.
Spicy Honey WingsI find myself sitting here and just staring at the picture of the spicy honey wings. Man, they sure were pretty, and they sure were delicious. I could easily make another batch for lunch today. I think I will. All of the ingredients to make the rub and sauce are pantry staples, and I always keep plenty of fresh wings around because you never know when you might want a few wings.

If you like your wings with a little heat and a little sweet, also try my Detroit Hot Honey wings.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
