HONEY-CORIANDER OVEN BAKED CHICKEN WINGS

Dianna Muscari of The Kitchen Prep blog created this recipe out of inspiration for the chicken wings served at the Walt Disney World Polynesian Resort located in Orlando, FL. I have personally tasted these wings and they are quite spectacular! The restaurant they are served at is called ‘Ohana it’s very difficult to get a reservation at because they are booked out months in advance. While Covid-19 currently has temporarily shut down this restaurant, now is a great time to try this recipe and fall in love with these wings!

Now let’s dive right in and learn more details about how she recreated this recipe!

I have a funny relationship with chicken wings. Admittedly, they are not my all-time favorite food, but from time to time, I go through periods of craving nothing but wings until I satisfy the urge to eat them. {Especially during football season.}

Normally, that means one evening of college football, greasy buffalo chicken wings, and beer {because you can’t have wings without beer}. And truthfully, I can’t eat more than 3 or 4 before calling it quits. That is so not the case with these Honey-Coriander Oven Baked Chicken Wings. I sort of surprised myself when I ate 6 of them and could have polished off the rest {though I’m glad I didn’t because that may have been overkill}. They are that good.

My husband, who has eaten many a chicken wing in his life, claimed that they were the best wings he’s ever eaten. We don’t mess around with statements like that in this house. No sir, not when we’re talking food.

CHICKEN WING SEASONING

The seasoning for these wings is super easy and perfect for using on a variety of proteins, too. It’s made of a combination of salt, pepper, sugar, paprika, cinnamon, garlic and a dash of cayenne. The combination of sweet, savory, warm and spicy flavors is absolutely perfect, giving the wings just the right amount of heat.

HONEY-CORIANDER CHICKEN WING SAUCE

In my opinion, this sweet, sticky sauce is the best part of these wings! This recipe is a copycat of the wing appetizer at Disney’s ‘Ohana Restaurant, located at the Polynesian Village Resort, so as you can imagine, it has a bit of a tropical vibe. {I’ve never tried it but I bet they’d go great with grilled pineapple.} It comes together in minutes and creates that mouthwatering sauciness that makes you keep wanting to come back for just one more bite.

“Creating this sauce is as easy as whisking together a few ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. A slurry of soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free version) and cornstarch is mixed together in a separate bowl and added to the heated mixture to thicken it up and make it the perfect consistency for tossing with the wings to fully coat them. It’s a little early to tell, but these may just become The Official Wing of Football Season. We’ll see!

Hi! I’m Dianna. I live with my husband {Steve}, my baby boy {Cole} and my yellow lab {Farley} in sunny South Florida where it’s ice cream-eating weather almost all year long. In 2011, I started The Kitchen Prep {the title inspired by the preppy Palm Beach fashions of my style icon, Lilly Pulitzer} as a hobby while I figured out what to do with myself after leaving a career as an elementary school teacher. I always loved writing and food, so the combination just seemed like a natural fit. In 2014 I officially traded in standardized testing for recipe testing, and I’ve never looked back!
