Spicy Breaded Chicken Wings

“Everyone really loves these spicy chicken wings! " says Barbara White in Katy, Texas. "They taste just like fried chicken but they're baked and are wonderful even without the dipping sauce. You can also make them with bags of drumettes instead of whole wings.” -Barbara White Katy, Texas

    I only made the sauce but it was fantastic! I added a little brown sugar besides the honey for a little more sweetness, but overall it was a hit.

    Very little flavor and no spice to them at all. I even upped the spice by adding chili powder on top of the cayenne. Not going to make them again.

    I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts/cut into strips - took to a block party and was over whelmed with request for the recipe! very moist and I like the fact that it is baked/not fried! Spices just right.

    I wish the people who had given this recipe such a low rating would have posted why. Chicken wings, breading, sweet and spicy dipping sauce, what's not to like? I'm still very tempted to try these, although I'm guessing that they might taste really good if sauteed in a little vegetable oil instead of baked.
