Honey BBQ Wings

Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are messy but totally worth it for the right recipe.  One day while watching Cooking Channel I saw a short video of ‘Crazy Legs Conti’, a professional eater, address the best ways to eat chicken wings.  Here’s the link – my favorite is ‘the meat umbrella’.  I found myself craving to attempt this technique, then I found myself craving wings.   Naturally, I turned to Pinterest.

A relaxing Sunday came around and I decided this was the perfect opportunity for wings.  While I love buffalo sauce, I wanted something new and more complex.  This recipe provides a sweet, yet slightly spicy wing that’s super easy to make.  Just remember to get a damp paper towel BEFORE digging in.  You’ll thank me once your fingers are covered in this sticky sauce!

The Recipe

Honey BBQ Wings
Yields 25
Write a review
  1. 2lbs chicken wings
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  5. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  6. For the Sauce
  7. 1 cup BBQ sauce of your choice
  8. 1/2 cup honey
  9. 2 tablespoons ketchup
  10. 1 tablespoon hot sauce (I love Fred's!)
  11. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with oil of your choice.
  2. Dry the wings before seasoning by dabbing each with a paper towel. After you've dried each wing, place them on the prepared baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. Make the seasoning in a small bowl by combining the salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, paprika and cayenne. Sprinkle the mixture atop the chicken until each wing is covered.
  4. Place the wings into the oven and bake for 50 minutes, turning once half-way through.
  5. While the wings are baking, make the sauce in a medium bowl by combining the BBQ sauce, honey, ketchup, hot sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.
  6. Once the wings are done baking, dip each one into the sauce (I use my hands) and place back onto the sheet. Return to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling.
  7. Remove and serve with dipping sauces and damp paper towels!
  1. For extra dipping sauce: After you've dipped each wing into the sauce, pour the remainder into a small saucepan and heat on medium. Heat the sauce until it bubbles and reduces by about half. You'll get a thick, sweet dipping sauce to serve alongside ranch or other dips of your choice.
