Sticky Honey Garlic Turkey Wings

Ok, I'll admit that I have recently become OBSESSED with turkey wings.  I grew up not necessarily liking turkey and completely shied away from it.  The meat was always so dry and flavorless to me.  When I picked up a pack of turkey wings at the grocers last week I thought how could I spice these up...Why not create a sweet a spicy glaze?  These wings are first roasted and then basted with a sweet and spicy sauce which is sure to please!  I paired the wings with sauteed spinach and white rice for a compete meal.  Enjoy two wings for only 494 calories!


6 turkey wing portions
1 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp McCormick's Chicken Seasoning
1 tbsp onion powder


1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp Sriracha hot chili sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Rinse the turkey wings under lukewarm water and pat dry using a paper towel.  Place the wings in a large baking dish, at least 1.5 inches apart.  Brush both sides of the wings with olive oil.  Stir together all of the seasonings for the wings and sprinkle them generously, coating both sides. 
Place the wings in the oven and bake for 60 minutes, flipping over halfway through the cooking time. 
In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, garlic, Sriracha, 1/2 cup water, honey and soy sauce, mixing well.  Remove the wings from the oven and pour the mixture over the wings, turning to coat both sides thoroughly. 
Bake for an additional 25 minutes. 
Take the wings from the oven and pour the cooking juices into a saucepan, bringing the contents to a boil.  Mix the cornstarch and 1/4 cup water together and add to the sauce.  Continue to cook the mixture until thickened, enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Set your oven to broil on the "Hi" setting and position the rack in the middle of the oven.  Pour the thickened sauce back over the wings and return them to the oven, broiling until the sauce is bubbly, careful not to burn. 
Remove the wings and toss with sesame seeds if you desire.
