Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Dry Wings

Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Dry Wings absolutely hit the spot. These are what dry wings are meant to be. Of course, you can use the seasoning on any wings, sauced or dried, but I highly recommend you try them dry first. You’ll get wonderful garlic flavor and lots of it. There’s not hunting for garlic here. Along comes just a little sweetness. Not a lot. And just the right amount of spicy tingle. Again, not a lot, but you’ll notice. Skip the dipping sauce, these dry wings are perfect without the need for anything else.

Frank's RedHot Stingin' Honey Garlic Dry Wings

I am not shy with the seasoning when it comes time to make my Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Dry Wings. Hot out of the fryer (or oven, or off the grill, it doesn’t matter!), into a bowl, and it’s time to get to seasoning. A few good shakes all over, and give the wings a good toss. Then, usually, some more seasoning and another toss! Time to eat!

Working at Frank’s RedHot has to be a dream job!

Perdue Hot ‘N Spicy Crispy Air Fryer Wings

Perdue Hot ‘N Spicy Crispy Air Fryer wings really made me happy. I’m not usually impressed with frozen, prepared wings. They’re usually scrawny and tasteless. Not these. Not even close. These wings are definitely hot and spicy. They have a delicious, crunchy batter. They cook up in no time in an air fryer (you can also prepare them in the oven). The aroma as they cook is dream-worthy. And perhaps best of all, they are not scrawny! Nope, these are meaty, tender, juicy, tasty, crunchy wings! Score!

I didn’t have high expectations for these wings and I was wrong about them. If you like battered wings and are in a hurry, you can’t beat them. Eat them straight out of the air fryer, or do as I did and dunk them in a little Buffalo wing sauce and Ranch dressing. Whatever works for you!

Perdue Hot 'N Spicy Crispy Air Fryer Wings

The packaging for Perdue Hot ‘N Spicy Crispy Air Fryer Wings says to cook them at 400 F for 16 minutes. Maybe it’s just my air fryer (which is a 1700 watt model), but I found that 14 minutes is better. The wings may not seem crunchy after the shorter time, but they do get crunchier as they cool a little. I thought they came out great. Any longer and they start to get a little dark. Not burned, just dark.

Perdue makes roasted and a lemon pepper versions of these wings. Try them. You’ll love them too and they’re great for your fear-the-heat friends!

Kinder’s Mild BBQ Wings

Although not ‘traditional’, I love tossing wings in barbecue sauce. Just as with wing sauces, there are so many barbecue sauces, so many different flavors. And many of them are truly amazing. Kinder’s mild BBQ wings are tossed in one of those amazing sauces. Mild in heat, but over-the-top delicious, this is one fantastic sauce for wings or anything grilled, from burgers to ribs.

Kinder's Mild BBQ Wings

These Kinder’s mild BBQ wings have a slight sweetness to them. And a light smokiness. This is one fantastic tomato-based barbecue (and wing) sauce for sure. This is one of those sauces you’ll want to keep on hand at all times.

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.

Calories: 291kcal

Ingredients

For the wings

For the sauce

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.

Kinder’s Honey BBQ Wings

Ahhhhh. Perfect. This is what a barbecue sauce is meant for. Wings. Oh yeah, I know, you put it on pulled pork, grilled chicken legs, ribs and even burgers. But on wings…. yum! Kinder’s honey BBQ wings hit the spot and then some for me. The sauce is a nice traditional tomato-based sauce. It has a hint of smokiness, but just a hint. It has a nice sweetness, but not too much. It’s not candy, just a great BBQ sauce that loves to be tossed onto some hot-out-of-the-cooker wings.

Kinder's Honey BBQ Wings

You can serve Kinder’s Honey BBQ wings at a party and not worry about anyone complaining about the heat. If you’re seeking out a bit of spiciness, though, Kinder’s makes a spicy version of this BBQ sauce too. So, cover all of your bases and serve them both! Now you know that everyone will be happy!

This sauce is also great for dipping nuggets.

Copycat Anchor Bar Buffalo Wings

There are three things I can sit down at a table to and eat all day long. They are (in no particular order): peel and eat shrimp, a crab boil, and copycat Anchor Bar Buffalo wings. Great food is even better when you can eat it with your hands. These wings have just the right amount of heat, the perfect vinegar hit, and a buttery flavor that is just the perfect combination. And, bite after bite, I cannot get enough of these wings.

Wing It Buffalo Wings

The fine folks over at Wing It nailed it when they came out with their version of a Buffalo sauce. Their sauce brings that classic combination of vinegar, butter and spices but with a little twist. The spices are different. Delicious. And although I love all of the sauces they make, this one is one of the best variations on the classic I’ve ever found. I love this sauce. Just the right heat and fantastic flavor, it cannot be beat.

Wing It Buffalo Wings

Wing It Buffalo wings sauce is loaded with seasonings. Make sure you give it a good long shake before drizzling it on your wings and giving them a toss. You want that flavor and kick in each and every bite to be the same. You’ll find yourself enjoying your wings like never before! Refrigerate any leftover sauce.

Air Fryer Buc-ee’s Barbecue Wings

I’ve been to two different Buc-ee’s. Both times the experience was almost surreal. The shear number of people almost overwhelmed me. There was merchandise everywhere. There were packaged snacks and fountain drinks everywhere. More importantly, there was food everywhere. Good looking, just-made great smelling food. I flowed through the crowd and went to my destination: the brisket sandwich station. I’d heard stories, I’d read the rumors. They chop the brisket right out of the smoker (after yelling ‘brisket is on the table!’) and sauce it with Buc-ee’s barbecue sauce. I gotta tell ya, it was one good sandwich. I immediately grabbed a bottle of the sauce and knew what I was making when I got back home: air fryer Buc-ee’s barbecue wings.

Air Fryer Buc-ee's Barbecue Wings

These air fryer Buc-ee’s barbecue wings were fantastic. The sauce has just the right consistency for wings. Not too thick and not too thin. Perfect for sticking to my wings. It’s lightly sweet but definitely not overly so. There’s a light hint of smokiness, a little hickory to give it that traditional ketchup-based BBQ sauce flavor. These wings are finger-licking good and then some. And easy to make to boot!

To find a bottle of the sauce visit your nearest Buc-ee’s. And take my advice. Pick up a bunch of it, it’s great on anything BBQ’d!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Lightly spray the basket of your air fryer with non-stick spray. Preheat per manufacturer's recommendation to 350 F.
  • Lightly salt the wings on all sides.
  • Add the wings to the basket (be careful it's hot!).
  • Cook wings for 12 minutes.
  • Flip the wings and cook another 12 minutes.
  • Increase the air fryer temperature to 400 F and cook another 6 minutes.
  • Remove wings from fryer and place in a bowl. Toss with the sauce.
  • Remove wings from the bowl and serve immediately.

Notes

Note: If your barbecue sauce is refrigerated, set it out on the countertop before starting the wings so that it warms up a bit. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings.
Note: The full 30 minute cook time is for large, meaty wings. If your wings are a bit thinner (er… scrawny) back the times down to 10/10/4 minutes instead of 12/12/6 minutes.

Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch Dry Wings

Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch seasoning makes for some of the best dry wings you’ve ever had. Sure, you can use it on your ‘wet’ wings, giving them some extra flavor before saucing them. But for me, I like the seasoning to be up front and standing all by itself. Not mixed in with some sauce. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I’m a big dry wing fan and these Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch dry wings hit the spot with traditional Buffalo wing flavors and a nice dose of Ranch.

Frank's RedHot Buffalo Ranch Dry Wings

Frank’s RedHot makes tremendous wing sauces and seasonings. You’re always guaranteed something good when you’ve got Frank’s on hand. Yeah, that sounded like a commercial but it’s true. Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch dry wings are proof of it. Me, I like to sprinkle my wings nice and heavy with seasoning when the wings are still hot. For me that’s usually right out of the air fryer or deep fryer. If you wait too long any residual oils on the wing get absorbed, making it harder to get the seasoning to adhere. Get ’em while they’re hot and you’ll be happy too!
