I served these delicious baked honey lemon glazed wings last night at supper and everyone loved them. They are really simple to make and are baked and not fried, although you could easily deep fry them instead if you prefer.

These are dredged in a seasoned flour before baking which really helps the glaze to stick to the wings. It’s a real finger lickin’ recipe for sure.

Fresh chicken wings are always best for crispy juicy wings of any kind.

Baked Honey Lemon Glazed Wings might sound a bit odd at first as a chicken wing flavour but just think about it.

People really love lemon chicken, like my recipe for a Broiled Lemon Chicken here.They also love sweet glad sticky wings of any sort as my recipe for Crispy Sweet Spicy Sticky Wings can attest.

A finger licken’ recipe!


I just took the two ideas and combined them into one delicious idea. We like to serve them for dinner with our Crispy Baked Wedge Fries on the side.

Great for get-togethers too.

Lemon & chicken are a naturally delicious combination.

We generally use organic honey in our recipes.

We have since served these wings many times to friends who come over for celebrations that often involve what we call “Sips and Nibbles”. That’s a combination of finger foods that we serve with drinks.

They have always been a big hit with all of our friends. Try them at your next party.

Baked Honey Lemon Glazed Wings - everyone loves crispy sticky wings and everyone loves lemon chicken. Why not combine them both in one incredible wing recipe?

To prepare the Honey Lemon Glaze

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil and chopped shallot.

  5. Toss well to cover all of the wings in glaze. Garnish with grated lemon zest and chives if desired.

I really want to make this!!! I have about 4lbs of chicken thighs I need to use. If I used thighs how long should I cook them for?

Well if you cut them into chicken wing sized pieces they should cook in about the same time.

I cannot bake or fry chicken in my home due to someone with severe poultry allergies. But, I can cook it in a crockpot in a closed room. Does anyone know if I can cook the wings in a crockpot or if I need to add anything to do so? Thanks!

I don't really understand how you would attempt to bake wings in a crockpot.

I am a big fan of honey glazed chicken. My mom used to cook this for us, but she usually fried the chicken wings. When I came over to my friend's apartment the other day, she made me this exact meal! She used creamed clover honey for the lemon glazed. Like you, instead of frying, she baked the chicken wings. A healthy and very delicious meal, indeed. I asked her for the recipe and she showed me your blog. I am so grateful. Next week, I'm going to try your recipe. I just bought a bear honey bottle for my daughter and clover creamed honey for my cooking. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

Wanna know something funny? Although the picture looks very yummy, my first thought was "where's the red and white checker table cloth?" hehe
