Perdue Farms’ culinary team partnered with the pros at Nature Nate's Honey Co. to develop a sticky, sweet and spicy honey chicken wings recipe that will make your taste buds sing!
If time allows and for optimal results, let wings marinate overnight in the homemade dressing. Then roast in a hot oven until crispy, golden and delicious.
- 3 to 4 pounds Perdue Chicken Wings (drums and flats)
- 1/4 cup gochujang (Korean chili paste)
- 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce (optional, for more heat)
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup Nature Nate's 100% Pure, Raw and Unfiltered Honey
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons finely grated garlic
- 2 tablespoons finely grated ginger
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Sesame seeds and chopped green onions (for garnish)
Step 1: Make Marinade
Whisk marinade ingredients together. Add wings to a large zipper closure bag and pour mixture over, making sure to evenly coat wings. Refrigerate overnight (or 4 hours, if you’re in a pinch).
Step 2: Oven Roast
Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a parchment-lined sheet tray with cooking spray; place the wings evenly onto the tray, making sure not to overlap. Drizzle remaining marinade over the wings, and cook for 40 to 55 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Wings are done when digital thermometer, inserted in thickest part of wings, registers 180 F and the bones no longer look red/raw.
Step 3: Plate
Place wings on a serving platter; drizzle with any excess cooking liquid from the sheet tray and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
