This is your chance to try one of the best chicken wing recipes out there. I am a huge lover of honey garlic chicken wings and making these with hot honey instead satisfies every taste bud possible. You are more than welcome to bake your chicken wings on a wired rack and you can definitely use any sauce of choice. This recipe makes 2.5 lbs. of Hot Honey Chicken Wings but feel free to adjust.
