Honey Chicken Wingettes

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 3 lbs. of organic antibiotic free chicken wingettes (wings/drumettes)
  • 1.5 large lemons juiced, plus 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1.5 tsp flake salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • honey for drizzling in broiling step


  • **Oven will be set to 375 degrees, but chicken needs to marinate for at least 2 hours before cooking**
  • In a large bowl, squeeze the juice of 1 and half large lemons over the chicken.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, salt, paprika, olive oil, and reserved 1 tsp of lemon juice to form the rub. Massage the rub in the chicken and marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours minimum or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and position the rack in the center of the oven.
  • Place the marinated wings and drumette skin side down on foil lined large baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven and turn the pieces over, for the wings, skin side up and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove wings from oven and raise oven rack to top third of the oven. Increase the oven temperature to Broil.
  • While wings are out of the oven, drizzle honey over wings. Return chicken wings to oven and broil 2-3 minutes. (Warning – Watch them closely, they can burn easily depending on your oven strength.)
  • Second time, remove the wings from the oven and drizzle a little more honey. Return to oven for another 2-3 minutes until nicely browned. (Warning – Watch them closely, they can burn easily depending on your oven strength.)
Kitchen Equipment Required: Oven and Baking Sheet
Technique Tip: Really rub the seasoning into the chicken. If you have the time marinate the night before. With the honey use the squeeze bottle for drizzling.
