Chicken wings can be prepared in different ways to achieve their crispness: fried or baked, coated with flour or not. To make them extra crisp, you can pre-poach (or pre-boil) them first to render off any excess fat. 

Visit this write up on different ways to prepare chicken wings. This recipe shows a baked technique, but you can certainly fry the wings to make them crispy.



  • 2 pounds Chicken Wings , rinsed & patted dry
  • Kosher Salt or Sea Salt
  • fresh cracked Black Pepper

Honey-Mustard Sauce

  • 1/3 cup Mustard , whichever your preferred type - Regular, Deli, Whole Grain, Dijon, etc...
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • fresh cracked Black Pepper , to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Season chicken wings with salt and pepper.
  3. In bowl, combine the honey mustard sauce ingredients (mustard, honey, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, granulated garlic, and black pepper).
  4. On the prepared baking sheet pan, toss the chicken wings with about 1/4 cup of the honey-mustard sauce (we don't coat our wings with oil before baking, but you can if you want. We find that the oil just makes the wings greasier. The wings release enough fat already). Bake in oven for about 45-50 minutes until golden brown.
  5. After wings are done, toss them with the remaining sauce in a large bowl. Serve with plenty of napkins.
