ISO "not so hot" chicken wings

I've been trying different methods and recipes for chicken wings, and haven't been able to find anything I really like.
I'm a bit of a wimp, I guess, but I can't eat those blazing hot chicken wings. But I do like them them to have a little heat and spice.

Does anyone have suggestions? I don't want to fry them.

Connie,
I might have sent you this, but I don't remember. I don't like super HOT wings or anything but this one is just right and so yummy, even Cade eats them.
Oven roasted chicken or turkey wings

I posted a recipe for Balsamic Soy glazed chicken wings in the chicken section. They aren't spicy but a different way to do them. Just a suggestion!

Just find a BBQ sauce you like and roll them around in it. Bake @ 400* for 30-45 minutes, stirring and turning them to brown them on all sides.

Connie...

My preference for wings are the fried or grilled variety...I've never done the oven method so will bow to the expertise of those who have.
As to the sauce...a favorite bbq sauce with added cayenne, Tabasco, etc for a little kick would work...some in my extended family like blue cheese, ranch dressings etc....my favorite is butter and Franks Hot sauce( heavy on the Hot sauce for me) I believe there are off the shelf wing sauces..I can't vouch for any of them as I have never tried..Hoisin sauce might be an option used alone or Kicked up. Honey added to something comes to mind...Infact I have used hoisin + honey on re-run-ribs for something different...hopes this helps..a little bit anyway.

Something I haven't tried yet, but plan to, is dry rub/jerk rub wings. Toss with selected seasonings and spices, and bake.

I'm planning to try this with my rendition of Emeril's Southwest Essence to see how it works.

I appreciate the suggestions, y'all. I like your idea of using some honey, Uncle Bob. I'll see what I can come up with.

Maybe you could bake them, and use a sauce of honey, soy sauce, a bit of ginger, maybe a star anise, a dash of sherry if you wiant. Would probably slather some on at the beginning, and then some more towards the end of cooking. I think it might just work. Have not done it, just an idea.

Constance, since you like them a little hot just sprinkle on some chili flakes to whatever you make.

Constance - the heat comes from chili peppers. Hot pepper, as you know it in the States. However...
Not all hot peppers are the same. Some peppers are far, far hotter than others. A guajillo chile, for example, is no comparison to a Bird Pepper; a jalapeño is far less "hot" than a serrano; a Thai Chile ( very hot by our standards) pales before a Savina Red Habanero.
In other words, peppers (chiles) vary, and so you need to use a "hot" pepper that you can tolerate.
I'd recommend a "New Mexico"; a "Guajillo" an "Ancho" or a "Peperoncino" ( Italian) if you cook your own wings.
