Football season is here and the hubby is sure excited. Between him finishing his last semester in school and football season now here, I hardly see him. We just had our big state rivalry game between BYU and the U of U. We cheer for the Utes here and mainly because that is the school my hubby will graduate from. But he is such a die hard fan. He even has the baby wearing U clothes on game day.

Wings are an absolute must on game day. Am I right? My son is one of the pickiest eaters and he LOVES wings. So they are always making their debut on game day at our house. And I have got the most delicious baked crispy wings to share with you today.

And let me tell you… you will not find a better sauce combo for these wings!

I am a wuss when it comes to anything hot. So I loved the sauce that glazed these wings. The honey and brown sugar helped to cool it down and give it a little sweet while still have a little bit of a kick to it. This was honestly the best sauce that I have ever had on wings!

You are going to love these crispy baked wings and the finger licking good sauce! They will be a hit at your next football party!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. In a ziplock bag add the wings. Add the baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper and shake to coat evenly. Place them on your prepared baking sheet.

  1. I made these tonight and they were DELICIOUS!!!!!! I ended up making two batches of the sauce: one spicy and one not so spicy. They were SOOO yummy!!

  2. I really like your website. Your recipes look so good. I tried to print them out but it isn’t working for some reason. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for letting me ask you. I will be waiting to hear from you.

  3. 5 stars
    The winner at yesterday’s Super Bowl??? Baked Sticky Honey Garlic Buffalo Wings!!! Usually I order wings the day before but this year I wanted to try your recipe. So easy, so tasty!! Our family all agreed that this must become one of our “tradition” foods. Thank you!!

  4. Made these for Super Bowl Sunday. They were delicious. My family loved them. I thought they were going to be a little bit on the spicy hot side because of the Franks Red Hot Sauce but I guess the honey and the brown sugar played its part to tone the heat down. This recipe definitely delivered. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  5. Wonderful wings. Just one thing. These are not Buffalo wings. Buffalo wings are simply Franks Hotsauce and butter. That’s it. Fry up the fresh raw wings then directly into Franks. I’m from Buffalo.
