Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

My grocery store was having a great deal on 5 pounds bags of chicken wings. John and I both enjoy wings but I never make them at home. However now I have this huge bag of them so needless to say I have been looking for recipes. When I saw this recipe I was intrigued. These came out great and were very tasty.

**I want to mention that sometimes wings release fluid during the cooking process. This did happen while I was cooking these so I just rinsed them off after the 40 minutes in the oven. I was a little hesitant but they were great and I will definitely work with chicken wings again.

Falling-Off-The-Bone Chicken Wings

1.5 lbs chicken wings, washed, dried, separated at joints, tips discarded
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used 1/4 cup)

I estimated the amounts of spices
1 1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400. Coat a broiler pan with non-stick spray. Mix ingredients from cayenne through garlic powder in a small bowl. Place chicken wings on pan and sprinkle wings with mixture on both sides.

Bake in oven for 40 minutes, turning halfway through.

In the meantime, heat the BBQ sauce, honey & soy sauce in a medium saucepan, cover and simmer on low

Remove wings from oven, and add to saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to ensure all wings are coated. Place back into the oven on the broiler pan with a new sprayed sheet of tin foil (or just put on pan, but it makes it harder to clean!)

Bake for an additional 15 minutes, turning once, and drizzle some more sauce on wings after you turn them.

Remove from oven, they will be very hot, and the meat should be falling off the bone.


  1. Just made these and they are tasty and do "fall off the bone". Did not use quite as much cayenne but followed everything else to the letter. Thanks, Lisa X
