What I love about this wing recipe is its simplicity. Mix the glaze ingredients together, pour over the chicken wings, and bake for about 1 hour. So easy it’s a great recipe for beginners.

The surprise ingredient for this Wings Recipe is the onion soup mix. The mix brings the sweetness and seasonings much needed for the overall flavor of these chicken wings.

The sweet & sour glaze is enough for upwards of 3 pounds of chicken wings so feel free to make more if you want.

After the initial bake, you can optionally put the wings on a baking sheet and broil them until they are done to your liking. This is how I like to finish off these delicious wings.
