According to Wallethub.com, 1.25 Billion chicken wings will be served up on Super Bowl Sunday! If you’re searching for a winning wing recipe this year, check out these delicious baked honey BBQ chicken wings! Making wings at home is very easy with this simple recipe, and result in a thick sweet and smokey sauce with brilliant flavors and sticky texture. I recommend baking wings on a broiler pan so they crisp up well on both sides and cook evenly.
Honey BBQ Baked Chicken Wings
(adapted from Food.com)
18 chicken wings (raw, thawed)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup barbecue sauce preferably Hickory Smoke Flavor
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoons hot sauce (I love Sriracha sauce!)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Wash, dry, and season the wings with the salt, garlic, pepper, cayenne, and paprika. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet or broiler pan with cooking spray. Place the wings in a single layer on the pan, and place in the oven. Cook for 35-40 minutes, depending on the size of the wings, turning once.
While they are baking, make the sauce by mixing the sauce ingredients together. When the wings are done baking, carefully dip them in the sauce, and place them back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling.
When it comes to chicken wings, my husband is very picky and he loved this recipe especially because the texture was a little crispy and didn’t come out soggy. We reserved some of the sauce for dipping and it was excellent. Enjoy!
