An easy homemade marinade adds a beautifully rich sweet and spicy taste to these oven-baked chicken wings. A fantastic meal for dinner, get-togethers, or as party food!


  1. 3 tbsp honey
  2. 3 tbsp olive oil
  3. 3 tbsp tomato paste
  4. Dijon mustard, 3 tbsp (or any medium-strong regular mustard)
  5. 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  6. 2 tsp. cayenne pepper (double the ingredients if you prefer a spicier kick at the end)
  7. 1 egg, beaten


3 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes separated (about 30 – 33 chicken wings)

Season with salt to taste



  • In a large mixing basin, blend all ingredients until well incorporated.
  • Separate and chill approximately 14 cups of the marinade in an airtight jar.
  • Set aside the bowl containing the remaining marinade.


  • Remove any excess liquid from the chicken wings with a paper towel.
  • Season both sides of the wings well with salt.
  • Combine them with the reserved marinade in a mixing basin.
  • Toss the wings in the sauce, making sure they are thoroughly coated with the marinade.
  • Refrigerate the bowl for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Please give them a complete toss and turn the wings halfway through the marinating time.
  • When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celsius.
  • A large baking sheet coated with parchment paper spread out the wings. Before placing the branches on the sheet, thoroughly coat them with the marinade.
  • Brush the reserved 14 cup marinade over the wings evenly.
  • Bake for 35–40 minutes, or until the golden brown wings rotate halfway through.
  • Then, increase the oven temperature to broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the wings are somewhat crispy on top.


  • You can use sugar-free ketchup for the tomato paste.
  • When I broil the wings, I keep them on the same oven rack (in the middle.) Keep an eye on the wings after a minute of broiling because some broilers are hotter than others. I don’t advocate broiling for more than 3 minutes because you don’t want all of that yummy sauce to dry up.
