Hey!  Welcome to my corner of the web!  Please follow me on Instagram and Facebook!

What can I say about these wings?? Crispy-check…sticky-check…sweet-check…spicy-check! What’s not love? I’ve used this marinade on chicken thighs and it’s always a hit so I decided to do switch things up a bit and use the marinade to make a sticky sauce for wings.

wings-1-2Just a few ingredients is all you need to make the sauce for the wings, it doesn’t get any easier. Did I mention how simple these wings are since there’s no frying involved?PineappleWings-1-10

The wings are baked in the oven until crispy then tossed in the sweet and spicy pineapple sauce. Oh and the sauce!!! If this sauce was on a shoe, I would eat it…it’s that good!

Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Wings
3 lbs chicken wings, tips removed and cut in 2
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder

Pineapple Sauce
1 cup pineapple juice
½ cup sweet chili sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pat wings dry then toss with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder until coated. Spread on a large baking pan making sure the wings don’t touch. This prevent the wings from steaming, this will help it to crisp. Place in preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until crispy. Remove from the oven and place in a large bowl. Pour sauce over the wings and toss to coat well. Serve warm.

To make the Pineapple sauce: While the wings are baking, place pineapple juice, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and light brown sugar in a small pot over medium heat. Cook until the sauce is reduced and thick, this should take about 30 minutes.

    Martha, you can broil the chicken breast then pour the glaze over it.

    Love baked wings. You don’t need a fryer to get that crispy, crunchy bite.
