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.

    Didn’t expect this easy. Multiplied the ingredients 1,5 times for 26 cuts. Added arenga sugar for extra sweetness. My 5 years old loves it!

    Delicious! Easy!

    Wow, this tasted so good that this is the first time I am ever writing a review on any recipe website. My family members were blown away by how yummy the chicken wings tasted. I followed the recipe exactly. This dish is definitely going to stay with my family for a long time. Thank you for sharing!

    I am with those who wonder about alterations for chicken thighs. The ones I have are bone-in. Sounds as though cantboilwater has the right ideas. Add a little roasting time for bone-in. Check internal temp with thermometer? These flavors sound wonderful…
