Deviled Chicken Wings 
Submitted by Beth Christian, Burlington County
One of my favorites was devilishly good: a recipe for deviled chicken wings from The Joy of Cooking. They’re easy to throw together and not greasy at all.
Here’s what you need to do:
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Grease a large baking sheet with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
Set out 1 ½ pounds of chicken wings.
Stir the following together in a large bowl:
½ cup honey
3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Next, combine these ingredients on a plate:
2/3 cup dry plain bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon red pepper
Toss the wings in the honey mixture.
Roll one at a time in the bread crumb mixture, shaking off any excess.
Place wings on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake 20 to 30 minutes.
Make sure that you turn the wings over with tongs about halfway through the cooking process.
Serve hot or at room temperature. Easy peasy!
