Sweet, spicy and smoky, these Chipotle Honey-Mustard Glazed Chicken Wings are always popular. Watch them disappear quickly!
If you love hot wings, you’ll love these Chipotle Honey-Mustard Glazed Chicken Wings! They’re smoky, they’re sweet and they’re a little spicy, too.
While grocery shopping in Hawaii recently, we picked up a bottle of El Diablo Chipotle Mustard, just because it sounded interesting. After one taste, we slathered it on pretty much everything except our morning smoothies. Once back home, I discovered that Amazon doesn’t ship this mustard to Canada, so I decided to recreate that chipotle-mustard hot and spicy yumminess myself.
These Chipotle Honey-Mustard Glazed Chicken Wings were the result!
First, I created a simple spice rub of coriander, cumin, smoked paprika, salt and pepper to toss the wings. I baked them in the oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, I made a glaze by combining honey, Dijon mustard, and canned chipotle chilis in adobo sauce with a little oil. I basted the hot wings with this glaze, and returned them to the oven to finish cooking. Once they were beautifully glazed, I sprinkled them with sesame seeds and finely chopped scallions and served them with extra glaze for dipping.
And they were a hit with everyone–right out of the ball park! Sweet and spicy with just the right amount of heat and that divine smoky flavour from the chipotle and the smoked paprika.
These Chipotle Honey-Mustard Glazed Chicken Wings are easy to make.
- Toss the wings with the spice rub, bake for 10 min, then baste with the sauce.
- Ten more minutes in the oven, then baste once more and finish cooking.
- Save half the sauce for extra dipping. Serve warm . . . but they’re equally as good cold.
These hot wings are lick-your-fingers-delicious! I hope you like them as much as we do.
I’ve adapted this recipe to use with chicken thighs, too. If you’re a fan of that smoky chipotle flavour, you’ll probably like these Smoky Chipotle Honey-Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs and my Easy Chipotle Peach Glazed Chicken, too.
