These Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings make a favorite appetizer or meal. The delicious spicy flavor is complimented with a hint of sweetness you’ll love in this simple recipe.
These baked chicken wings are one of my favorite things to serve as an appetizer when we have friends drop by or even serve as a meal for my family. Since they aren’t fried, they are automatically lighter than their deep fried relatives!
The marinade and sauce that I use makes for a really flavorful bite as well. Slightly sweet, with a kick of spice at the end, it is impossible for me to eat just one!
Here’s my Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings recipe. I hope you enjoy them!
