These blackened honey dijon chicken wings are the perfect way to get your family out of a dinner rut and try something new and amazing!

Adding a little extra char to these blackened honey dijon chicken wings only adds another depth of flavor that will have you wanting to blacken all your chicken wings! Bake these chicken wings low and slow in the oven for a perfect crispy wing without the fryer!

Since pork is expensive and one of my family members doesn’t eat beef we eat a lot of chicken.  There are so many different things you can do with chicken but sometimes you get stuck in a rut.  The kind of rut that makes you never want to eat chicken again.  Like that time we ate something with noodles every night for a week.  I never wanted to see another noodle as long as I lived.  So when I had some wings leftover from our Super Bowl party I knew I had to try something different.  Or risk a chicken strike!

Adding a little extra char to these blackened honey dijon chicken wings only adds another depth of flavor that will have you wanting to blacken all your chicken wings! Bake these chicken wings low and slow in the oven for a perfect crispy wing without the fryer!

Usually when we splurge on chicken wings {or more accurately find them on sale} we slather them with my favorite Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.  To switch it up I went with some honey and dijon which is the perfect flavor combo of sweet and tangy and these have fast become my favorite wings!  Sorry Ray.  I like my chicken wings crispy without having to fry them in oil.  So low and slow in the oven makes sure they are fall off the bone tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.  

Adding a little extra char to these blackened honey dijon chicken wings only adds another depth of flavor that will have you wanting to blacken all your chicken wings! Bake these chicken wings low and slow in the oven for a perfect crispy wing without the fryer!

Lucky for us this sauce would also be good on chicken breasts, roasted potatoes, ham, and even salad!  The possibilities are endless so that hopefully you’ll never be stuck in a strike-inducing dinner rut ever again.  Take my advice and drizzle these with some more honey fresh out of the oven for a little extra lovin’.  You won’t regret it!

How have you spiced up dinner to stay out of a rut lately?

I've always wanted to try making my own chicken wings - my whole family LOVES them! And I love the low and slow idea - totally trying :)

I love finding new wing flavors as I cook 'em a lot too! These sound so tasty, and I'd definitely drizzle some of that extra honey on while they're hot! YUM.

Ohhhhh yes. I wish I experimented with wings more but they always feel like party food vs dinner!

I'm always super impressed with how few ingredients you use in your recipes, yet the end result looks absolutely scrumptious. These wings are no exception. Now, I'd like to try these, but I'm not a huge fan of Dijon. Could I use regular mustard?

Aww thank you! I'm a lazy cook, so the fewer ingredients and steps I can use the better haha. I don't like regular mustard which is why I chose Dijon so definitely substitute whatever mustard you like!
