Crispy Baked Honey BBQ Wings

These crispy baked honey BBQ wings made a believer of baked wings out of me. I rarely make wings in the oven. Or rather, I used to rarely make wings in the oven. These wings were delicious. They were cooked just right. The skin had the perfect bite. Man, there’s just nothing worse than rubbery wing skin. Not a worry here, that’s for sure. And the sauce? Oh me, what a great combination of sweetness, smokiness and just a bit of heat.

Crispy Baked Honey BBQ Wings

This recipe for crispy baked honey BBQ wings scales really easily. So if you need to make a bunch of wings for a bunch of people, all you gotta do is double it or triple it or more. The sauce is also great on the sauce for dipping the cooked wings, so make extra. It’s really good stuff, and people are likely to want more of it. I did.

I used Sweet Baby Ray’s for the barbecue sauce in the sauce mix, but you can use your favorite. Since you’re adding honey and a little heat, I’d opt for a more traditional BBQ sauce versus a sweet heat version.

Instructions

For the wings

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with non-stick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, garlic powder, chili powder and black pepper.
  • Add the wings to the bowl (working in batches if needed) and toss to coat well. Transfer the wings to the baking sheet. Do not overlap the wings or let them touch.
  • Spray the tops of the wings with a little non-stick spray. This is optional but I think it gets the wings a bit more crispy.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the wings and bake another 20 minutes.
  • Brush the tops of the wings with half of the wing sauce. Bake another 5 minutes.
  • Flip the wings and brush with the remaining sauce. Bake another 5 minutes.
  • Optional: If you want a little more color to your wings, place under the boiler for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them, though. You do not want to burn the sauce.

For the sauce

  • Meanwhile, combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat to keep warm until the wings are done, stirring often.

Baked Spicy Buffalo Ranch Wings

The problem with most baked Buffalo-style wings is that the flavor is only skin-deep. The wings are cooked then tossed in a sauce then served. Problem is, that sauce never gets a chance to flavor the meat. You take a bite. Yummy. Take another. Sadness. Nada. Nothing. The sauce is gone and so is the flavor. These baked spicy Buffalo Ranch wings are not those wings. These wings are marinated in Buffalo sauce. That sauce gets ‘down in there’, flavoring the wings all the way through. The result is bite after bite of Buffalo wing goodness.

Baked Spicy Buffalo Ranch Wings

You can easily scale this recipe for baked spicy Buffalo Ranch wings to feed a bigger crowd. For those that want even more heat, use a hotter hot sauce. Of course you can use a tamer sauce for those that don’t like that spicy kick.

These wings have a skin that is ‘bite through clean’. No yucky chewy chicken skin here. They aren’t going to be crunchy, but you can give them a little bit of a crunch and color by placing them under the broiler just before serving them. Just don’t leave them under that high heat for long.

Baked Taco Wings

Yowsa. I could’ve eaten an obscene amount of these baked taco wings. I really wasn’t expecting them to be so great. Boy o boy, I could not get enough of them. Great taco flavor with a lightly crunchy coating. And easy? It’s hard to get any easier to make. And on the side, a just-as-easy Ranch and chile pepper dipping sauce. I liked the sauce to much that I went on to make more and used it as a salad dressing!

Baked Taco Wings

The coating on these baked taco wings is pretty delicate, so be careful when flipping them. Just take a little extra time and they’ll be fantastic. I’m a big fan of taco seasoning, so I might admit to adding a bit extra for a little more flavor. These wings would be excellent as an appetizer at a party. The flavor is definitely different than traditional Buffalo wings. The dipping sauce has a nice chile pepper flavor to it, combined with a more traditional Ranch dressing.

Copycat Plucker’s Medium Buffalo Wings

It’s a tremendous understatement to say that I love Plucker’s wing sauces. I’ve tried many of their bottled sauces and they are all absolutely fantastic. I devoured my last bottle of medium Buffalo sauce, so I had to resort to making a copycat Plucker’s medium Buffalo wings sauce. Oh, and all was right in the world again! The perfect amount of heat, just enough to wake me up but not so much to make me cry. Wonderful traditional wing flavor. These are the wings that are destined to disappear in no time.

Copycat Plucker's Medium Buffalo Wings

I cut the recipe down so I could enjoy a small batch of copycat Plucker’s medium Buffalo wings for my lunch. No point in heating up my huge restaurant-style deep fryer for just a handful of wings. So, I used my Fry Daddy fryer instead. This little fryer gets a workout in my house. It’s the perfect size for a small batch of wings.

I usually reach for the Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce when I make anything Buffalo-style. And sometimes I’ll go for Crystal Hot Sauce, which has a wonderful Louisiana-inspired flavor. You want a traditional cayenne sauce, and not something flavored like a habanero mango hot sauce!

New Orleans Hot Wings

You’re heard of Nashville hot chicken. Heck, you’ve probably had it plenty of times, just like me. And I’ve made a few batches of wings with Nashville hot sauce on them. There are a number of good bottled sauces out there, like the one from Buffalo Wild Wings. Well, move over Nashville! New Orleans hot wings are in the house! I took the same concept, battered fried chicken wings with a spicy paste, and Cajun-ized it! These wings bring the flavor, the crunch and just the right amount of heat.

New Orleans Hot Wings

You can make your New Orleans hot wings as hot and as Cajun as you want. Or tone it down a little, if that’s your thing. Add more hot sauce to make the sauce a little thinner and of course, a little hotter. The more seasoning, the more of that Cajun flavor and the thicker the paste is. It’s a fine line. You don’t want a thin sauce here but you also don’t want it so thick you can’t get it to stick to your wings.

You can use whatever hot sauce you prefer, but for me, this recipe screams Crystal hot sauce. It’s from Louisiana. Boom!

Copycat Hooter’s Hot Buffalo Wings

It’s hard to beat Hooter’s for good ole hot wings. If you don’t have a restaurant nearby you have three options. One, move. Two, order some of their breading and sauces online and make the original yourself. Or three, make this copycat Hooter’s hot buffalo Wings from scratch. Any option will do, but I have to admit that these wings came out spot-on like what I’ve had at the restaurant. They’re hot but not crazy hot. They’re breaded perfectly. They taste wonderful and they disappear in no time. That’s the sign of darned good wings.

Copycat Hooter's Hot Buffalo Wings

I wouldn’t do anything different about these copycat Hooter’s hot Buffalo wings. Except maybe more of them, more often. You can tone down the heat but leaving out the cayenne and make a medium version of these wings, but then they wouldn’t be hot wings! Doh!

If it’s just me or the two of us, I’ll use my lil ole trusty Fry Daddy fryer to make these wings. I can fit a good 8 pieces in without any fear of over-crowding. As an added bonus, it doesn’t use much oil and it is super easy to clean up. It sure makes deep frying a breeze.

Big Game Hot Wings

These Big Game Hot Wings were some of the best, if not the best, homemade wings I’ve had. The sauce really hit the spot for me. It’s the perfect combination of a little sweet and a little heat, with a little vinegar and mustard tang to it. It’s beyond finger-licking good. And since it’s homemade, I got to adjust the heat to my liking. That meant that I added a bit more hot sauce than the recipe calls for. You can use more. Or less. This sauce would be great for the Big Game. You can make a huge batch of sauce without a lot of fuss or trouble. If you’re worried about the heat scaring off some of your guests, just make two different batches. One with the pepper flake and hot sauce, and one without.

Big Game Hot Wings

This recipe for Big Game Hot Wings is one of the many great wing recipes you can find in Brian White’s series of chicken wing cookbooks. Every book in the Chicken Wing Cookbook Book 1 Deliciously Different Recipes of Chicken Wings You Need to Try! series is packed with fantastic recipes like this one. I picked up all 6 books for free on Amazon with my Kindle Unlimited subscription. Heck, these books alone more than make the subscription price worth it!

This sauce would be absolutely great on grilled or smoked pork ribs. The mustard would go perfectly with the pork.

Spicy Mango Wings

Let’s all head to the islands and enjoy some delicious tropical-inspired wings! These spicy mango wings bring a little fruitiness, a little sweetness and as little or as much heat as you want! The sauce is the perfect consistency for wing-sticking enjoyment. I couldn’t find fresh habaneros in our market, so I used a good few shakes of habanero hot sauce instead. It hits my palate up front, then comes the fruity sweetness and all is good in the world again.

Spicy Mango Wings

I used frozen mango chunks when I made these spicy mango wings. They’re always in season! They’re easier to deal with than a fresh mango and always perfectly ripe. It’s nice to keep them on hand for recipes like this and anything else that calls for mango.

The sauce on these wings is also great on grilled or smoke ribs. Or slather it on grilled chicken.

Baked Coconut Mango Wings

I’m gonna be straight-up. I thought these baked coconut mango wings were delicious. I loved them. I’m not usually a big baked wings fan, but they were packed with island-inspired flavor with golden-brown lightly crunchy skin and moist, tender meat. It was the dipping sauce that threw me. Maybe it’s because 99% of the time I dip my wings in blue cheese or ranch salad dressing. I’m not sure, but I wasn’t a fan. I’d make these wings again, but I’d use the sauce as additional marinade instead. You might feel differently, but it’s my job to be up-front and honest.

Baked Coconut Mango Wings

The gorgeous color on these baked coconut mango wings comes from the annatto in the Sazon seasoning. It’s the same stuff that’s used to color other foods, like making cheddar cheese orange. Yeah, it’s really white. Go figure. Why do orange-ish foods taste better? I’m not sure, but they do. And they look better too.
