making honey bbq chicken wings

Love restaurant-style chicken wings?

Chicken wings are one of my family’s favorite appetizers to order at restaurants, and yet they are honestly super simple and money-saving to make at home! These are perfect for snacking on during the big game, and really easy enough to bake any day of the week.

Gooey caramelized honey BBQ wings are a family FAV! 

My kids never cared for traditional Buffalo wing sauce when they were younger because of the spice level, but they could always take down a plate of honey BBQ flavor at any time, so it’s a family favorite for sure.

These deliciously sweet and smoky honey BBQ wings are baked to perfection in the oven and the result is a tender chicken wing on the inside and a crispy, sticky sauced texture on the outside. Dip them in some ranch or blue cheese dressing for a fantastic snack or meal.

Tips for making fantastic honey BBQ chicken wings:

    • I buy a huge bag of frozen chicken wings at Costco and keep them in a deep freezer outside. When we are in the mood for wings, it’s easy to take some out to thaw in the fridge!
    • If you’d like a spicy sauce, feel free to add more hot sauce to taste or use a spicy BBQ sauce! Wings are very easy to adapt.
    • Crispy chicken wings are also easy to make using the air fryer! Place about 10 of them in the basket in a single layer and cook for around 30 minutes at 370 degrees.

We reserved some of the sauce for dipping, and it was excellent. I hope you enjoy these honey BBQ wings as much as my family does!

    I’ve never made homemade chicken wings so I was a little nervous but I’ve never seen my husband devour 15 wings so fast in my life! He absolutely loved these! I highly recommend using the broiler pan. The sauce was perfect!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Thanks so much for sharing ❤️

    • Zandile

      It was my first time making BBQ sticky wings so I was really worried. The recipe is easy to follow and easy to make. My family loved the wings. This is sure going to be a go to quick snack in our household. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  2. Amy3

    I always bake my wings. I also bought wire racks a Dollar tree to use inside cookie sheets lined with tin foil, works great!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great tip! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  3. Marie

    This one is a Keeper!!! Had decided after trying 3 different wing recipes, I would never make homemade wings again. Decided to try one more new recipe-so glad I did. Thank you for sharing !!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

    fantastic wings recipe. I used kikkoman miso BBQ sauce to make it slightly asian but still added the other ingredients. crunchy skin and tender meat.

  5. teri

  6. Cheryl

    I have never tried to make chicken wings myself but these were great. I had 8 lbs so I didn’t use the broiler but that would even be better. They were great! Thank you for this recipe!

  7. lovekeil

    Omg! They look incredibly DELICIOUS 🤤🤤🤤

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much!

    For wings always go crispier – just the right side of burnt. And dump the wings into the bowl of sauce – get your hands messy coating them. And FYI – in Buffalo we don’t call them buffalo wings (and there isn’t a “buffalo sauce”), they are just wings and you pick your sauce.

  9. Pat Goff

    I am going to try it with chicken tenders. My brothers won’t eat wings or drumsticks, not enough meat they argue….. I’ll let you know if it works.

  10. Amy

    These were GREAT! I’ve always been intimidated to try making wings, but this recipe seemed easy, and with ingredients I had on hand. My husband LOVED them!! This recipe is a keeper for sure!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! That is so great to hear Amy!!
