Detroit Hot Honey Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

Yowsa. Somebody needs to open a gallery of chicken wing pictures. A picture of these Detroit hot honey wings would be right by the entrance. Under heavy guard. I loved them more than I ever thought I would. They’re almost like your standard Buffalo wings with one very obvious addition: sweet honey. Oh, and cayenne. Sweet heat, exactly what you’re searching for in a great wing.

You can add more cayenne pepper to the wings as they marinade if you like, but I leaned towards more sweet than heat when I made Detroit hot honey wings. The sauce is so great you could eat it by itself. I think it might also make for a great ham glaze too. And it would also make for a great sauce over roasted or grilled chicken.

If you like your wings with a little heat and a little sweet, also try my Spicy Honey wings or Dragon Fire 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.

    • Hi! Sorry to hear that about the sauce! Mine wasn’t super-duper thick, but it wasn’t runny either. You could try letting it simmer while to reduce it. You can’t really get thicker butter or honey, so maybe see about using a thicker hot sauce too?

      Good luck
