Honey Hot Wings

The epitome of sweet heat harmony comes together with this HVR chicken wings recipe. A sweet, spicy honey butter sauce seasoned with Hidden Valley® Ranch Spicy Seasoning is tossed with golden chicken wings and finished in the oven until flavor perfection is achieved. Served with Hidden Valley® Ranch for dunking, of course.


3 lbs. of chicken wings

Honey Hot Sauce

3 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. Hidden Valley® Ranch Spicy Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix Shaker

4 tbsp. butter

1/2 cup honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a mixing bowl, toss the wings with olive oil and spicy seasoning mix until well-coated.

  2. Spread the chicken wings out on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake about 25 minutes until the skin gets crisp and lightly browned.

  3. While the wings are cooking, make the honey hot wing sauce. Melt the butter and honey together in a small pot set over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is pourable. Toss the honey butter with the wings and spread back on sheet tray; bake for 5 minutes more.

  4. Serve hot, with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing, for dipping.
