These 5 ingredient Honey Garlic Chicken Wings are perfect for dinner, lunch, parties or even a snack! They’re sticky, sweet and very easy to prepare.
Baby, it’s cold inside. I truly believed that when I was last ranting about winter, we were done. It’s March.
Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-50s. Instead, today was well below freezing. We were once again pummeled by snow on Sunday.
Enough already, winter! I do not believe in you anymore, therefore you do not exist.
I will heat up my kitchen to 425 degrees fahrenheit and pretend it’s downright steamy outside. Our kitchen windows will fog up in protest and that’s good. I will no longer be able to see your salty white destruction outside.
I will roast honey garlic chicken wings slathered in olive oil and lemon until they sizzle and their skins are crisp and brown from the heat of the oven.
And then I will eat them while they’re hot! And then… I don’t even know what I’m talking about, winter. Just go away already.
Honey Garlic Chicken Wings
- 2 heads garlic
- 1 2/3 cups extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- juice from 2 lemons (approximately 1/4 cup)
- 3-4 pounds chicken wings (approximately 35-40 wings)
- kosher salt
- Separate the garlic cloves without removing their skins. Place them in a pot, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Boil the cloves for 10 minutes, then drain and allow to cool.
- Squeeze the cloves out of the skin into a food processor and pulse them several times. Then turn the machine on and pour in the olive oil, honey and lemon juice.
- Place the wings in a large, sealable plastic bag and pour in the mixture. Seal and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the wings (skin side up) and liquid in a large roasting pan or baking sheet with raised sides. Roast for 45-60 minutes, basting every 15 minutes, until the meat is cooked and the skin is brown and crunchy.
- Remove the wings from the pan with tongs and place on a serving tray. Salt them generously before serving.

I can’t believe you’re still getting crappy weather! Enough already Mother Nature..
Thanks for the link up btw :)
I can’t believe you’ve got yet more snow – what a rough winter you’re having! I hope it gives way to sunshine and warmer temperatures soon.

Loved a tweet I saw today that basically said, ‘I don’t want to hear one word from anyone about being too hot this summer.’ I can agree to that; SO over winter and we haven’t even had it bad in Denver; today is supposed to be 60. Then we’ll probably have a blizzard tomorrow. I think the storms that normally dump on us have passed us by and headed east!
I love this flavor combination; I’m not all that nuts about the standard Buffalo type sauce. I will do wings in the summer too on the grill; heat one side and cook on the other side. My rule is to basically not turn on my oven in the summer but after trying an upside down cake on the grill I do concede to baking in it! :)

These look amazing and I have never heard or read the technique of boiling the whole clove bulbs before. I’m sure they tasted fantastic. Take that winter! I also want to say that your photography is exceptional. Thanks for sharing.
