Honey Chipotle Roasted Wings

January 30, 2013, 5:00 am
Preparation Time: approximately 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 1 hour

Serving Size: 3 wings tossed in sauce


3 pounds chicken wings (approx. 18 wings)

3 TB baking powder

2 TB chili powder

1 TB kosher salt

2 cups orange juice

5 TB honey

¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium

2 tsp cornstarch

2 tsp chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced

1 TB ketchup

1 tsp cayenne pepper

garnish cilantro


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse wings well and dab with a paper towel to dry. Meanwhile, blend baking powder, chili powder, and salt. Toss wings in mixture to lightly coat. Place on baking rack on top of baking pan; Roast 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining the orange juice, honey, soy sauce, chipotles/adobo, and cayenne into a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer 5-8 minutes until slightly thickened. Create a slurry by removing 2 TB liquid and mixing with cornstarch - add back to mixture and allow to thicken the rest of the way.

After 30 minutes have passed, remove the wings from the oven and coat with the glaze thoroughly. You can place them into a bowl, toss with the sauce, and replace them on the rack, if desired. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Storage and Turn-out

Serve immediately; garnish with cilantro.
