For The Wings:

  • 3 pounds chicken wings and drumettes
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

For the Harissa Sauce

  • 3 Tablespoons Harissa paste
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and place an oven safe baking rack on top.

  2. In a large bowl, toss the raw wings and drumettes with the vegetable oil.

  3. Add the salt and pepper and toss to coat. 

  4. Place the chicken in a single layer on the prepared baking rack and bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes, until just starting to brown. 

  5. While the wings are baking, make the sauce. In a large bowl, whisk together the harissa paste, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Set aside.

  6. When the wings are just baked, remove them from the oven and immediately toss the hot wings in the harissa sauce, mixing well to coat. 

  7. Return the wings to the baking sheet and place them back in the oven, baking for an additional 8-10 minutes until crispy. 

  8. Serve immediately.
