Because tonight is Monday Night Football and Dusty is cheering on his Cowboys, I made wings! And not just any wings....savory and sweet Honey Dijon Wings!
Usually for a football game, I make my Football Spicy Wings because I like it HOT! But tonight I made a more sophisticated and savory version of chicken wings that I absolutely love...and Dusty loves more! Besides football, these wings would be perfect for a luncheon or any group gathering. Your guests will be licking their fingers and singing your praises!
Honey Dijon Wings
-2 lbs of chicken wings, split at the joints and tips removed
-Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
-6 tbsp Dijon Mustard
-1/4 cup Honey
-1 tbsp + 1 tsp Ground Mustard Powder
-1 tsp minced fresh Garlic
Position the lower oven rack on the bottom third of the oven and preheat the oven to 450 degrees (F). Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray so the wings don't stick to the surface.
Pat the wings dry and sprinkle them with Kosher salt and ground pepper, to taste. Spread the wings out evenly in the baking dish and bake the wings, flipping them over halfway through, for 40 minutes.
While the wings are baking, combine in a large bowl the dijon mustard, honey, ground mustard powder and garlic. Mix together and set aside until wings are done baking.
Once the wings are done baking, remove the wings from the baking dish and place them in the large bowl with the honey dijon sauce. Toss the wings until fully coated with the honey dijon sauce and then return the wings to the baking dish to continue baking for 3-5 minutes until glazed.
