Honey Mustard Soy Sauce Chicken Wings are juicy & finger licking good! Marinate with soy sauce, honey, whole grain mustard, and herbs for just 10 minutes. Great for holiday parties or game day parties!
Chicken wings are one of those foods that everyone loves. It’s no exception in Hong Kong. Whenever there is a party, chicken wings are always present. Growing up, I saw them at birthday parties, Christmas parties and school parties. Chicken wings are definitely a popular dish.
With Christmas approaching, it’s only natural that I have been thinking about chicken wings. Then I found this recipe on Facebook. It has soy sauce, honey, whole grain mustard and herbs. What a unique combination! That is the perfect example of what a lot of Hong Kong food is. It’s a blend of Chinese and Western flavors.
These chicken wings were savory and umami with a little tangy from the mustard, and a hint of sweetness from the honey. The mustard seeds gave a little texture to the wings. Not to forget the herbs, they were aromatic and added lots of flavors.
One of the best thing about these wings is the short marinating time. You just need 10 minutes. Bake for about 25 minutes. They are ready to be served. Juicy and finger licking good! Either for the holiday parties, game day parties or even as main course for dinner, these wings will be a huge hit.
Happy Holidays! I’ll be back before the end of the year for 2018 Top 6 recipes. Stay tuned!
