Eating chicken wings is one of my favorite pastimes. I usually eat the spiciest ones I can get my hands on, but this sweet recipe for Oven Baked Chicken Wings with Sweet BBQ Sauce from Dine & Dish looked so delectable that I decided they must be tasted.
You will need: honey, molasses, ketchup, cinnamon, paprika, seasoned salt, fresh cracked black pepper, salt, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar, olive oil, and chicken wings.
In a bowl you’ll start pouring in your ingredients. First, the honey.
Then molasses …
A few squirts of ketchup …
Next the cinnamon. This ingredient, I have to say, just made the dish otherworldly. I had never had cinnamon on chicken wings and it was amaaaazing.
Then comes the paprika. I used smoked paprika, which gave it a nice flavor. But any kind will do.
Next some cracked peppa.
Chop up some garlic as finely as you’d like. I didn’t quite mince it because I wanted a chunky sauce but you could make it a paste for a smoother consistency.
Add that to your bowl as well.
A little Worcestershire …
Some mustard of any sort.
And some brown sugar, which will caramelize so nicely as it bakes.
Give it all a nice stir.
It will be smooth and chunky and syrupy at once.
Line a sheet tray with foil, then drizzle on some olive oil and spread it around.
Add the chicken wings to the bowl, or you could add all of this to a big plastic bag and shake it. You’ll also notice that I’m using wings that haven’t been separated at the joints. You can separate them or get them pre-separated so you have a wing tip and a drumette. Or you can be different and keep them large and whole.
Toss them nicely so the sauce is coated evenly.
Place them in the oven and let them bake for an hour.
Halfway through cooking, they’ll look something like this.
Turn them over so that the sauce caramelizes on top and the bottom gets some sauce on it too.
They will be shiny and beautiful.
And you will eat them in one sitting. They are finger lickin’ gooood.
A new favorite of mine, these tempting Chicken Wings with Sweet BBQ Sauce hit the spot and are so easy for a quick weeknight meal!
