Keep those little fingers (and mouths) busy with this recipe! Children love to be involved in group activities and the kitchen is full of curious things to play with. Cooking with your kids also educates them on healthy food choices and introduces them to food preparation, so that they may grow up to be independent adults.

Here’s an easy recipe to try with your kids, and they’ll love devouring the sticky-sweet wings too!

Honey-glazed chicken wings 

These sweet and sticky chicken wings are baked in the oven and are a less fatty alternative to fried wings. The honey marinade takes just minutes to prepare and is made with kitchen staples, so you don’t have to make the trip down to the supermarket.

Smaller wingettes and drumettes soak up the marinade better and they are well-suited to children’s hands. Get your kids to lay the marinated wings onto the oven baking sheet and brush the honey glaze on them before putting them in the oven.

Optional – you can add sesame seeds and chopped spring onions as a garnish before serving.


 1 kg chicken drumettes and wingettes, defrosted and at room temp
 3 tbsp soy sauce
 3 tbsp honeyPlus extra for glazing
 1 clove of garlic, crushed
 1 tsp salt
 1 tsp pepper



Mix soy sauce, honey, garlic and salt into a large bowl. Add chicken wings and cover wings with the marinade thoroughly. Cover and leave for at least 2 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator.


Preheat the oven to 230 degrees celsius. While waiting for the oven to preheat, lay the wings on an aluminium foil-lined baking sheet with about 2 inches of space between each wing. Brush on the honey glaze and pop the sheet into the oven.


Bake for 10 minutes until the top of the wings is golden brown. Turn over the wings and brush on more glaze. Do not involve the kids in this as the oven is hot!


Bake for another 10 minutes until both sides of the wings are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle sesame seeds and chopped spring onions before serving.
