I love good finger food, don't you? 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.

Recipe adapted from Petaluma Poultry, providers of Rocky Range and Rocky Jr. chickens.


  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce (or 1 1/2 Tbsp regular soy sauce, use gluten-free soy sauce or tamari for gluten-free version)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 20 chicken wing drummettes


  1. Marinate the chicken wings:

    Rinse and pat dry the chicken wings. Place them in a large bowl or marinade bag.

    Mix together the marinade ingredients—crushed garlic cloves, honey, mustard, soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper—and pour over the chicken wings to coat.

    Chill for at least an hour or up to 24 hours.

  2. Roast the wings:

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a roasting pan with foil and place a baking rack over it.

    Place the chicken wings in on the rack in a single layer with some space between the wings.

    Bake for 25-35 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken wings, until cooked through and well browned.
