Orange Honey Balsamic Herb Stuffed Wings Recipe

Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes | Makes: 8

I am a huge fan of taking classic dishes and putting my own twist on it. These wings have become a favorite starter dish of mine and also are highly requested by friends and family when we have get togethers.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 ½ lbs. chicken wings
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 c. fresh basil
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • ¼ c. fresh orange juice
  • ¼ c. honey
  • 1 t. balsamic vinegar
  • Pinch salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor combine garlic and basil and pulse until resembles a paste.
  3. Begin stuffing the mixture evenly under the skin of each wing and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake about 45 minutes, until crisp and juices run clear.
  4. In the meantime combine olive oil, orange juice, honey, balsamic vinegar and salt in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for flavors to meld and sauce reduces slightly.
  5. Using a pastry brush, glaze wings 15 minutes into cooking time and each 10 minutes after that until done. Watch wings carefully to prevent them from burning.
