Whenever you want some quick appetizers, go for Chicken wings. But the problem is, most of the chicken wings are deep fried and if you are health conscious, then obviously it is not an option.
So go for baked or grilled ones. They taste equally delicious and very easy to cook and also you can eat how many you want without any guilt. Also, if you are more health conscious, try to remove skin from the wings or use boneless skinless chicken pieces instead of wings for this recipe.
These wings are great especially , if you have a large crowd, prepare your marinade in advance. You can even prepare it 3-4 days in advance, refrigerate and then just warm it up whenever required.
But let me warn you !! Make extras, because , I am pretty sure, the moment you take them out of the oven, they will disappear. My own personnel experience.
For marinade, you can also use ginger if you like the taste of it,but I skipped it.
You can also go for Teriyaki Chicken Wings or Lemon Pepper chicken Wings if you like. But I personally like my wings to be hot with some sweetness too. So I used hot sauce , along with honey.
So let’s have a look at my baked chicken wings recipe.
