Tasty, yes, but not too spicy. Just what’s in this sauce? Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, honey, butter, black pepper and chives. Oooh, Mama!


  1. Place the precut wings on a large greased nonstick baking sheet tray.
  2. Bake for 18–20 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time or until crispy on the outside and reaching an internal temperature of 165° F on an instant-read thermometer.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to a large bowl and combine with a rubber spatula, until well mixed.
  4. Remove the wings from the oven and toss in the sauce until evenly coated. Transfer to a large platter and serve.
