My father has had his thinking cap on. “It’s football season. What your website readers need is something good to eat while drinking beer and watching the game.”

He’s so right, isn’t he?

I love good finger food. Here’s an easy recipe for chicken wing drummettes—the part of a chicken wing that looks like a mini drumstick.

You marinate the wing drummettes in a mixture of honey, mustard, olive oil, soy sauce, and garlic, and then roast them in the oven until done.

Use Drummettes or Wingettes!

You don’t have to use only drummettes, you can use wingettes or just pieces of chicken, cut the size of drummette. Note that cooking time will vary with different cuts.

These were absolutely delicious; we can’t wait to make them again!

Chicken Wings in the Oven

That’s right–no deep-frying required for these chicken wings. These are roasted in the oven!

This makes this party snack a little bit healthier, and also means you can make the entire batch all at once. Easy!

For more crispy edges and even cooking, set a metal baking rack inside your baking sheet and lay the drummettes on top. This lifts them off the surface of the baking sheet and lets them cook from all sides.

    I tried this recipe yesterday and it was awesome. I have already recommended it to several of my friends and family. My kids want to know when am I going to make this again. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!

    I tried this recipe in Australia and it was a BIG HIT! Here, in SoCal, USA I used it w/the whole wing and it still was just as delicious. I have shared this recipe all the way into Canada, and to the other side of the earth and everyone has enjoyed it. Great party appetizer! Or just to eat on your own!

    I made these tonight. They were awesome! They were the best wings I’ve ever made. The skin even browned perfectly! The only thing I did differently was that I added 1 tbsp of a sweet barbeque sauce. I also didn’t have garlic so I used garlic powder. I only marinated for about 1 1/2 hr. Can’t wait to try them again and marinate overnight. It was soooo easy and they are so tasty!! I will definitely be coming to this site now for ideas!!
