  • 24 chicken wings (cut into wing and drumette pieces)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 cup honey
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 habanero pepper (minced finely)
  • 1 pound bacon (cooked and crumbled)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. Remove chicken from packaging and dry with paper towels. In a large zip-top bag, mix together: flour, salt, black pepper and smoked paprika. Shake to incorporate.
  •  Drop the chicken wings into the flour mixture and shake to coat chicken. Shake off excess flour and drop chicken wings into the hot oil. Fry for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Remove from oil and let drain on paper towels. In a mixing bowl, whisk together: honey, apple cider vinegar, and habanero pepper. Dip each chicken wing into the sauce and then place onto a baking sheet. Bake chicken for 5 minutes, remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
