Sweet and Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken

sweet and spicy honey garlic chicken 

This recipe is easy to make, and is fantastic either as an appetizer or a main dish. It’s simple to cook the first time around, but easily is prepared in advance and reheated at the last minute for a relaxed game-day party! The light flour dusting in this recipe not only keeps the chicken’s juices from escaping and leaving your meat dry, but it also gives the glaze something to stick to. My only recommendation when you go to dine on this flavorful dish? Bring your appetite and a hot towel to wipe your hands.

Prep time: About 10 minutes
Cook time: approx 50 minutes to 1 hour

24 chicken wing pieces (12 whole, split into pieces)
12 chicken drumsticks
1 c. gluten-free flour blend
3 Tbsp olive oil

1 c. honey
¼ c. coconut aminos
4 Tbsp garlic powder
1 ½ tsp. powdered ginger
1 tsp chili powder
½ c water

Note: This makes a mild sauce - increase the chili powder or add a splash of Tabasco or Sriracha if you prefer it spicier.


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Line 2 baking trays with aluminum foil. If you’re using non-stick foil, keep going. If you’re using regular foil, take a second to coat with another teaspoon or so of oil.

If you have whole chicken wings, cut them into pieces at the joints. Discard the tips (or save in the fridge for making stock), and use the meatier upper pieces.

3. Lightly dust your chicken in the flour and shake off any loose flour. Place oil in the  bottom of a container, add chicken, and toss to coat.

4. Bake chicken for 20 minutes on each side (40 minutes total), flipping halfway through. 

5. While the chicken bakes, combine the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring the glaze to a boil. Then, lower the heat and allow the glaze to simmer for approx 5 minutes or until half the water has evaporated.

6. After 40 minutes in the oven, remove the chicken, toss it with the glaze, and return to the oven for another 5 minutes on each side (10 minutes total). Serve hot.

If you’re baking these in advance, remove them from the oven after the 40 minute mark, and cool on a baking sheet. When preparing to serve, toss the chicken in the prepared glaze and bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes until heated through and the glaze has set.
