Honey BBQ Baked Chicken Wings Recipe

Honey BBQ Baked Chicken Wings Recipe

If you’re searching for a winning wing recipe, check out these delicious baked honey BBQ chicken wings! Making wings at home is very easy with this simple recipe, and the result is a 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

How to make chicken wings Hip2Save


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.

    Thanks for posting! Are these good without the sauce? I know they won’t be honey BBQ but I’ve been looking for other seasoning combos to season chicken wings with to bake them instead of frying.

    Just an fyi you shouldn’t wash raw chicken in your sink it spreads germs all over. Anything on your chicken that you might want to wash off will be killed in the process of cooking as long as you cook all your poultry thoroughly.

      re: Just an fyi you shouldn’t wash raw chicken in your sink it spreads germs all over.
      I have heard that before, but it never makes sense to me. So it spreads germs. I assume in my sink if I wash the raw chicken. Why not wash your sink after rinsing the chicken?

    • gater

      Because water status everywhere and enters the air, it gets on the faucet, counter, cabinets etc. And its really completely unnecessary.

      That doesn’t seem to make sense to me either, what about my cutting board and knives? And the towel I dry them with afterward? Am I supposed to wash everything outside or throw it out afterward? I would think some hot water, soap and a good scrubbing for my items as well as my sink and counters should suffice.

      • mel

        But you’re not washing your chicken in warm, soapy water or disinfecting it with Lysol or Clorox! Rinsing chicken is totally unnecessary, as it can spread microscopic bacteria to other areas of the kitchen and cause cross-contamination. All you have to do is trim off any fat, and pat dry with a paper towel.

      • Candice

        You use a towel to dry your chicken? Hope you meant paper towel.
        And placing the raw chicken into a bowl of cold water and vinegar is totally fine, which rinses and cleans the chicken at the same time.
        I’ll reconsider when eating at anyone’s house after reading these comments! Rarely eat out… Just imagine what they do to “clean” their meats! Oh my…

        • mel

          I did indeed say paper towel :). Usually quite a few sheets of paper towels, depending on how many pieces of chicken I’m cooking. No one in my household has ever gotten sick from eating my chicken, including guests. As long as it’s is cooked properly, any bacteria will be cooked off. I think rinsing is just an unnecessary step, and water can possibly expose the meat to more impurities.

    • gege1804

      Well I’ve heard this before, but will continue to wash my chicken with vinegar and lime. Depending on the meat we also pour hot water over it. I am from the island and that is how we have washed our meats and no one ever gets food poisoning or all the other stuff people gets by just cooking their meat without washing it. I don’t know how that meat was handle in the facility it was produced or in transit so I will continue to wash my meat :). I got off topic, but wonderful recipe! and I will try it in the future.

      • riss

        Gege1804, please share how you do this with lime and vinegar. How much and how long? Thanks

        • Gege1804

          Place the chicken in a container. I pour White vinegar on the meat ( plus salt sometime). Cut up my lime or lemon and squeeze out the juice. We use the juice to marinade the meat later with other spices. I probably let the salt and the vinegar sit no more than a minute or two. Rinse it off and rub the lemon or lime on the meat. Rinse it off again and season as usual. You can also just do just the first step and go from there. All of this is done after you took off what u wanted off the chicken example fat etc.

          • Candice

            I do the same! Some people don’t even rinse it obviously! 🙈

          • mel

            I’m sorry but that is just gross, using the same “juice” you let the chicken sit it as a marinade. THAT could def cause cross contimination! And using vinegar and lime doesn’t do anything to kill off any germs.

            • MomGA

              Mel – you are squeezing the juice from the lemon/lime to use later.
              Then use the lemon/,lime that you squeezed to rub on the chicken – it’s like washing the chicken with a cut up lemon/lime. (then you throw it away!)

    • SPB

      All you have to do is spray your counter, sink, handles, etc. with peroxide and then wipe clean. It kills all germs from washing chicken or any other raw meat! ☺️

    • Laura

      👍 I agree about the not washing chicken. Just recently saw Dr Oz talking about this very thing and he and experts explained how the water actually causes microscopic particles of bacteria to become airborne & spread all over your kitchen. Cooking the chicken thoroughly is all you need to do. Less work and less cross contamination. 😉

  6. SoxGirl1029

    Perfect timing…I just bought some chicken and was trying to figure out what to do with it. I’m going to try this tonight with the thighs that I bought. Thanks 🙂

    • SoxGirl1029

      Made it tonight with the thighs and it was a hit…so yummy 🙂

  7. Rose

    Looks good thanks, Im trying it out tomorrow.

  8. Jennifer

    I just got some wings on sale! Thanks Lina!

  9. Mamasweetpea

    Looks yummy. Is this spicy or very mild? Just seeing if I need to make adjustments and make a separate batch for the kiddos. Thanks

  10. Alycia

    Washing chicken is pointless, why do something extra? The cooking process kills the bacteria. I don’t why you would want to take the extra step. Also washing the chicken will introduce new germs on the chicken that cooking might not kill.

    Hi there,
    I am writing to say that I really appreciate the recipe uploads and I think it helps so many families out to learn new, quick recipes for their busy lifestyle. However, I do wish that your blog would provide healthier, meat-free alternative recipes. A great deal of the general public is now more health conscious, more concerned about animal cruelty and rapidly moving towards an environmentally friendly lifestyle. I think this way you could help influence the general public to eat a healthier diet, decrease animal cruelty and move more towards a sustainable Earth. As such a well-known, well-liked and respected blogger, I really believe you could influence many individuals to move towards a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle not only for them but also their families.
    Thank you so much Collin. I truly hope you consider this!

    • Mel

      Are you a new reader? Collin/Lina DO post meat free recipes. Then she gets complaints about them. So if you aren’t interested in a particular recipe then pass on it until something is posted more to your liking.

  12. Vanessa

    Wow, I have never seen so many snarky ladies!

    • JA

      Honestly, the comment section has almost become unreadable. I had a person insult my family recently. I keep telling myself to not bother clicking but I do anyway, because there can be some helpful comments and occasionally I can offer help to others, too.

  13. Sherri

    There is absolutely no reason to insult someone else on these comment sections. If you don’t agree, that is Your Own Opinion and not something you need to blast someone else about because they don’t do it your way or think the same way you do. Collin has set up a wonderful website for us all to find great deals, coupons, freebies and recipes to name a few, and obviously puts an amazing amount of time, energy, and thought into it. Let’s not ruin it!

  14. Rocio

    This is the 4th time I’ve cooked these they’re so so delicious 😋 I also used this recipe with chicken drumsticks 🍗!! Thank you for sharing this recipe!! God bless
