Today we’re being joined by Gallo Family Vineyards to bring you a Game Day dish for all of your upcoming get-togethers for the Big Game…you know the one!
To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Spread your wings out on a baking rack and baking sheet.
Pat the wings dry with paper towels.
Lightly spritz the tops of the wings with a little extra virgin olive oil.
And sprinkle with a good bit of salt & pepper. Bake for about 35-40 minutes.
While the wings are baking, you’ll prepare your glaze. In a small saucepan, combine 1/3 cup honey
a third of a cup of whole grain Dijon mustard
and two tablespoons of butter.
Melt this all together over low heat. When it just begins to bubble, turn off the heat.
When the chicken has finished baking, it will be lightly golden on top, with crisp skins.
Place the wings into a heat-safe mixing bowl.
Pour in the glaze, and stir the wings to coat them.
Place the wings back on the baking sheet.
Bake for 10-15 more minutes or until the wings are beautifully golden.
I paired my yummy wings with Gallo’s Sweet White Blend. Here’s how I made came to that choice: I headed over to the Food Pairing feature on Gallo’s website. There, you can choose between red meat, white meat and other categories. I chose white meat, since these are chicken. Then there is a second tier of options such as garlic, herb crusted, spicy and others. I selected “BBQ” because the coating on these wings, while not a traditional red BBQ sauce, does have a flavor that is similar. Once you select your second tier, you are given three wine selections, and how they best match. I was given Moscato, White Merlot and Sweet White Blend as suggestions. Since I hadn’t yet tried their Sweet White Blend I decided to bring that one home, and was very pleased that I did! It has a light and not too sweet flavor, and didn’t overpower the flavor of the wings. Perfect!

I would totally be licking the plate clean with that glaze! So simple, but SO delicious!
Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you, wings are my favorite thing. I could eat them anytime, anywhere and anyway. The next time it will be with honey dijon because yours look fabulous, Constance. Just divine!
I’ve never seen that Gallo wine before! I have to keep an eye out because it sounded delicious…sweet white wine is my favorite! These wings also sound fabulous :)
Yum! Honey and Dijon on wings. I think a lot of people will have spicy wings for their Superbowl parties, but they also need this recipe. I’d bet that these would go faster than the spicy ones. These are going to be on my menu.
Wings are a must-have at every football party!
I’ve been obsessed with whole gran dijon lately. These wings are right up my alley!
This is a such a great sauce! The heat from the mustard is played down nicely from the honey. Fabulous pairing.
These wings are perfect! I bet the honey dijon glaze is delicious with the Sweet White Blend.
Yay another wing recipe! I have wings baking in the oven right now but not with this easy honey dijon glaze. Great now I need to buy more wings ;)
What a deliciously simple marinade!! I love this and can think of all kinds of veggies I can use this with. Beautiful photos, and I really love your new site. Just beautiful.
I was fascinated when I saw your wings dish because I wanted to see which wine you paired yours to because I also did a wings dish. I can imagine how the sweet wine pairing well with the balanced flavors of the honey and dijon.
OK, so I don’t really dig wings, but oooooh, that glaze!! Yummmmm!
Only 6 ingredients? They look and sound incredible!
And I really need to use a baking rack to bake my wings….never thought to use it!
It lifts the wings up and lets them crisp very nicely :)
These are now on my list of must try wings~yum !!
Your wine pairing is spot on in my opinion! Love the honey and mustard sauce on those beautifully baked wings. Yum!
I just made chicken wings yesterday!!! These look fabulous! and love that you paired these with a sweet white blend. . I have never even heard of that before! will definitely look for this at the store!!
Such perfection!!! It’s been years since I’ve made wings, but yours look incredible, Constance! Perfect football food :)
“Beautifully golden”…music to my ears!
Sounds like a delicious glaze indeed! My husband would probably love these since they aren’t heavy on the spice (he’s a wimp!)…
Definitely need these wings for the Big Game! Love all the pictures…I feel like I’m right there. I only wish I was eating one now!
Oh my what lovely glaze on those wings. And I’m thinking it would be great on seafood too. Yum!
I like this better than straight up barbecue sauce for wings, Constance! Sweet White Blend sounds like a wine I’d love to try!
