GRILLED HONEY HOT WINGS are essential for a perfect game day spread! These are the perfect mix of sweet and spicy!
Wings are a big hit in my house! Even the kids get in on the awesomeness that is a chicken wing!!! They make great game day food! You can have a wing in one hand and a beer in the other and you’re ready to go! For me sweet and spicy just go together. The sweetness really cuts down on the spice, making it easier for my little guys to eat.
When I made these for the family my husband couldn’t stop eating them and my son told me they were the best wings he’s ever had. Talk about a win! You could add some cayenne pepper to the chicken when you season with the salt and pepper, if you’d like to make it more spicy. For game day I don’t go too spicy because I never know what other people’s heat tolerance is going to be so I let the heat sauce do the spice! Make sure to make a big batch of these wings because they’ll go fast!
