Honey Lemon Chicken Wings

It is a long school holiday break right now, and my sister and nieces came over to stay at my place for the holidays. We were out on most days. Yesterday I was feeling lazy and decided to stay home with the younger kids, while my sister and my other older nieces  went shopping.  We ordered home delivery pizzas and I made this Honey Lemon Chicken Wings. 

These are fairly easy, simply bake the chicken wings in the oven for half an hour. Meanwhile, make the sauce, with only three ingredients, honey, lemon juice and garlic. Mix them all together. According to the recipe, remove the pan from the oven, pour the sauce and continue baking for another 20 minutes. I have however, pour half the sauce over the wings, bake for 10 minutes, remove the pan, turn over the wings, pour the remaining half of the sauce over the wings, and bake for another 10 minutes. Place tray on the upper level for about 3-5 minutes more to get them all really brown and nice.

Advise to go easy on the lemon juice, start with a few tablespoons, taste and add more if needed. 

Chicken wings, either roasted, fried, or baked would make a great party food, especially if you are hosting one this coming Christmas.

December is a busy month for most of us, there are Christmas shopping to do, presents to wrap, menus to plan, and despite all that, it is a fun busy month, especially when we have families from out of town stayed over for the holidays. Before you know it, holidays will be over soon, the new school term starts, and life gets back to daily routine! Enjoy this month while it lasts, with only less than three more weeks to go, before the New Year sets in!
