Hot Honey Butter Chicken Wings
1.5 lbs chicken wings
½ tbsp baking powder
½ tbsp potato starch (sub corn starch)
1 tsp garlic salt
½ tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2-4 tbsp hot sauce (Use your favorite!)
2 tbsp honey
Pinch or more salt (if needed depending on which hot sauce you used)
Dry the wings very well with a paper towel, this will ensure a crispy wing. Combine wings and baking powder, potato starch, garlic salt, salt, pepper, onion powder, and smoked paprika. Make sure they’re evenly coated.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and place wings on a baking rack set over a lined baking sheet for best results. Or bake directly on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on your wing size. Flip at the 25-30 minute mark.
In the meantime, heat a saucepan over medium low heat and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add in your hot sauce and honey. Simmer 2 minutes until thickened. Taste and adjust salt if needed. Toss the baked chicken wings with the hot honey butter when they come out of the oven. Serve immediately.
