Do you celebrate the “Big Game” in your house? Have you started to think about your Game Day menu yet? I love “homegating”! It give us a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family and friends cheering on our favorite team. And, while my favorite team may not be headed to the “Big Game” this year, hosting a Game Day party is a perfect excuse for a get-together.
Today, I have an easy wing recipe for you to try. How does Baked Honey Sesame Wings sound to you? Pretty good, huh??!! I’ll admit, I get a little tired of the traditional Buffalo Wings, but no Game Day party is complete without them. I feel I need to change things up a bit and this recipe does the trick. And best of all, they are BAKED and not fried.
I also love the simplicity of this recipe. Create an easy marinade, marinate the chicken for at least an hour, bake for 30 minutes and BAM!, you have an delicious appetizer to enjoy with your guest while the watching the game! The marinade is perfect for boneless chicken breasts too.

- ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
- ⅓ cup water
