Oven Baked Honey Garlic Wings and Classic Hot Wings

One of our favorite things to do when we were DINKs (Double Income No Kids) was to go to local pubs for $0.25 wings on Wing Wednesdays. After gorging on several dozen of wings, we would swear off wings for a while but only to go back a few weeks later.

We realized that the wings we ate at pubs were deep fried, so we searched for a slightly healthier option. Baking the wings in the oven achieved similar crispiness of deep frying without all the fat and greasiness.

Over the years, we would often try to bake our own wings at home when the craving hit when it was not Wednesday. Quick, easy and delicious, there's no real reason to hit a pub, unless it is Wings Wednesday.
