Honey dijon mustard sauce make these wings spectacular and great football snacks. The sauce works for any chicken parts too.
Wings And Football
It’s football season and that means it’s time for finger foods and great snacks.
And what is a more perfect finger food than wings. Apart from ribs, it’s the quintessential food that pairs so well with sports.
Since they’re so popular, there are several ways to cook wings. My favorite way of late is to do them in my air fryer. And these can be cooked that way, but for these, I used my oven. Actually, that’s my second choice but since this makes a big batch and I didn’t feel like cooking the wings in shifts, I opted for the method where I could cook all of them at once.
Flats Drummies Or Whole
Some folks definitely have their favorite part of a wing. Oddly, I do not. I like drummies as much as I do flats. I’ll also take them whole. Heck, I just love wings and any way you give them to me.
It doesn’t matter which part you choose to cook since they’re all good. Even with whole, it’s best to cut off the wing tip because there’s not much if anything to eat off of it. The wing tip will likely burn too so it’s best to cut if off. However, don’t discard it. They make excellent stock so cut them off and freeze them for later.
Honey And Dijon Mustard Sauce
The honey and dijon mustard sauce make these wings a sticky delight. You’ll see plenty of finger licking when you serve them so make sure there’s plenty of napkins available!
This lovely mustardy sauce also works well for any chicken parts. In fact, it reminds me very much of deviled chicken.
Just one caveat her for the sauce–it contains a bit of turmeric so it’s likely to permanently stain anything it comes in contact with so make sure you use a stainless saucepan to make it in and serve it on a glass or disposable tray.
