These wings are coated in cornflake crumbs, oven fried and drizzled with spicy honey. They are hot, crispy and addicting...best of all, not fried, so they're better for you. GET LOTS OF NAPKINS (AND MAYBE A BIB) AND ENJOY!

Directions

  • Whisk together the buttermilk, hot pepper sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken wings, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator 12 to 24 hours.

  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease two baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Combine the crushed cornflakes, flour, cornmeal, and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade, and squeeze off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Press the wings into the cornflake mixture and place onto the prepared baking sheets. Spray the top of the wings with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the meat is no longer pink and is pulled easily from the bone, 30 to 40 minutes. While the chicken is cooking, stir together the honey and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan over medium heat until the honey thins. Keep warm until the wings are ready. Once the chicken has cooked, place the wings into a large mixing bowl and drizzle with the honey sauce. Toss until evenly coated. Now you will have a big pile of hot, crunchy, spicy, sticky wings.

LOVED this recipe! I can't believe it wasn't rated earlier. I went to a friend's place to watch the all star basketball game and thought this would be good to prepare was a little hesitant because there weren't any reviews but sincerely they were a hit. My friends love the taste thought they were very flavorful. The Cornflakes gave the crunch the baking gave us a better conscience and they were very easy to make. I added extra hot sauce because I prefer it spicier but otherwise AWESOME! Read More

made these tonight- I marinated over night and for whatever reason the coating didnt stick evenly. Also I baked for closer to an hr. - 40 mins was not long enough. I put them into a large bowl drizzled the honey over and that was good. I just didnt find enough breading stuck maybe the corn flakes weren't finely ground enough? Read More

These were pretty good I used blsl chicken breasts in stead and cut them in to "fingers" I cut down on the red pepper ( using a half cup honey and a tsp of red pepper) and it was perfect for us! Read More

YUMMMMM!! i cant beleive there are not more reviews. This was excellent and easy to make. If you don't like spicy you can just reduce or omit the pepper flakes from the honey but these were all gone. Excellent cool out of fridge or at room temp for lunch the next day also. I will be making again this weekend way to go Boomdog!! Read More

Can't really rate it because I haven't tried it yet but I'll give it 4 for now just because it sounds awesome. A piece of advice for the breading that falls off - after coating the wings in the cornflake mixture stick it in the fridge for an hour or the freezer for 30 minutes before baking them. The cold will make the breading actually "stick" to the chicken. I can't wait to try this recipe I absolutely LOVE honeyed wings. Read More

I made these wings for a Hotwing Throwdown. I really worked the crowd with them looking for a win. They are delicious! Perfect just the way the recipe states. Don't change a thing! I did turn mine half way through baking just to make all sides crispy. These did not win the throwdown but they are a winner with my family! Read More

We thought these were really good! I marinated the wings in the buttermilk mixture overnight. I was hesitant on putting that much pepper flakes into the honey but decided to do it anyway. I am glad that I tried one before putting it on all the wings because it was waaaaaaay too spicy like I lost my breath spicy but maybe that's just me because the other reviews had no issue with the heat. I fixed it simply by straining the pepper flakes out of the honey and starting over with less. I ended up with just enough heat for us. These really are everthing they say they are crunchy spicy sticky and sweet-a GREAT combination! I will definately be making these again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I used blsl chicken breast sliced in smaller pieces and they turned out great! Marinated for a full 24 hours. When assembling I realized I had no cornmeal so I had to skip it but they still turned out crispy. Used more than a tablespoon of the red pepper flakes. Crunchy and spicy. Love it! Read More

This needs to be retitled to "Super Tasty"! Every single person in the house tonight enjoyed these very much. The honey drench totally hit the mark and easily became a favorite for me. Along with many other reviewers I am surprised these haven't been reviewed more. This recipe definitely needs promotion. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Read More
