Instructions
Hot Wings
  1. Cut up your wings, if necessary. Cut off the wing tip, then cut apart the double-boned section from the drumette. See the photos above for step-by-step directions. Place the prepared chicken in a sealable bag or container.
  2. Combine the marinade ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Pour the marinade over the chicken wings and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or as long as 24 hours.
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Cover a baking sheet with foil, then place a wire rack over it. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Line the chicken up on the wire rack and bake for 10 minutes, then flip them over and bake for another 10-12 minutes, until crispy. You can also forgo the wire rack if you don't have one, I just like to use it because it makes the wings slightly crispier.
  4. While the wings are baking, prepare the sauce. Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan, then cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, until thickened, stirring every few minutes. Set aside until ready to use. Also prepare the dipping sauce (recipe follows).
  5. When the wings are cooked through, place them in a large bowl and pour the sauce over them. Toss to coat. Serve with the Parmesan Ranch Dipping Sauce (recipe follows). Serves 4 as a light appetizer or 2 for dinner.
