Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray
12 chicken wings (about 3 1/2 pounds), disjointed

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup honey
Celery and carrot sticks, for serving

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Toss the wings with the salt and pepper to coat evenly in a medium bowl and then transfer to the baking sheet.

Bake wings until the skin is golden and crispy or the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, 25 minutes.
Preheat the broiler.Brush the wings with 1/4 cup of the hot sauce mixture. Broil for 3 minutes.

After broiling, brush the wings with another 1/4 cup of the hot sauce mixture and flip the wings. Broil again until browned and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Remove and immediately brush with the remaining sauce. Serve with celery and carrot sticks.
