Sweet Hot Mustard Chicken Wings

Chef John 21760

"If you are as burned-out on the basic Buffalo-style chicken wing recipe as I am, then this recipe's for you. The hot, sweet, mustardy glaze is a very welcome change of pace from traditional style. Enjoy!"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; coat the aluminum foil with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange the wings on the prepared baking sheet so they do not touch; season with salt.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crispy on top, about 20 minutes. Flip the wings with tongs and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes more.
  4. Stir together the Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, honey, cider vinegar, salt, pepper, and hot sauce in large mixing bowl. Add the wings to the bowl and toss with a spatula to coat evenly. Allow to sit for about five minutes and toss again to re-coat. Transfer to a plate to serve.

Made exactly per recipe. Awesome. Wings were tender and juicy, but most importantly, the flavors were great. A very nice sweet-hot-mustard combination, a great change to the tradtional wing (...

Yum! These were fantastic, and a nice change from the typical buffalo and/or soy sauce-based wing recipes. I didn't find them very hot at all, so I might add a touch more hot pepper sauce next t...

Easy and yummy. Will make again

My husband is a picky eater but honey mustard anyting he will give a try. He really liked these wings and surpirsingly I did too and I usually leave all the honey mustard for him! Perfect combin...

Sorry, Chef, but your orignal hot wing recipe completely seduced me :) This isn't hideous, but it doesn't touch the quality of the original.

I'm not a big fan of mustard based sauces or dressings, but I LOVED this recipe! We like things spicy and grilled at my house so I increased the hot sauce for extra burn and grilled the wings, b...

I have made these many times since originally seeing the recipe on Chef John's Foodwishes blog. The sauce is sweet, tangy, spicy, perfect. The sauce is also great for grilled chicken legs

Made this for some friends we stayed with on vacation and they raved about it!!
