Chicken Wings with Moroccan spice and Honey glaze

Chicken wings with Moroccan spice and Honey glaze. Oh my.

Over the last 6 months or so I’ve become obsessed with eating chicken wings. I love going to resturants and trying them with different sauces. It’s fun to chang  up the flavor but I’m a baby when it comes to heat. My options are limited because most places amp up the heat and have tons of hot options, but not many mellow options (like 5 out of 20 are not super hot). I also can’t get them everywhere because I have to make sure they are gluten free. You’d be surprised with how many places don’t have gluten free wings.

To stay safe I make a lot of wings at home. I try different sauces and test out new recipes but by far my favorite is Moroccan spice and Honey glaze. A little sweet and a little spicy, these wings are my perfect amount of heat. The heat warms your mouth and throat without feeling like you’re burning from the inside out. And the honey is perfectly sticky sweet to balance the spices.

The Moroccan flavor is from the Ras el Hanout  spice mixture. It’s a popular spice mixture in Moroccan cooking and has tons of different spices and is full of flavor. It’s well worth making some yourself but it has grown in popularity and can sometimes be found in your local grocery store.

If you’re looking for your new favorite wing flavor, here it is. You’ve gotta give these a try if your a chicken wing lover.

You can also check out my Moroccan Chicken Thighs, which uses the Moroccan spice and honey again. You really can’t go wrong with the combo, the flavors are just perfect for each other.
