How to make Oven BBQ Chicken Wings
To make these delicious Oven BBQ Chicken Wings, start by preheating your oven to 425F (220C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place an oven rack on top for even cooking.
In a large bowl, place the chicken wings and drizzle them with oil. Toss the wings in the oil until they are evenly coated. In a small bowl, combine salt, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Sprinkle this mixture over the chicken wings and toss again to ensure all the wings are evenly seasoned.
Arrange the seasoned chicken wings on the prepared rack in a single layer, allowing them to cook evenly. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, depending on the size of the wings. After the first 20 minutes, flip the wings once to ensure they brown evenly on both sides.
How to prepare the BBQ sauce for coating the chicken wings
While the wings are baking, it’s time to prepare the flavorful sauce. In a small saucepan, combine barbecue sauce, honey, and your choice of hot sauce. Simmer the sauce over low heat for 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Once the wings are cooked through, remove them from the oven. Brush the wings generously with the prepared barbecue sauce, coating them evenly. Place the wings back in the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. This step allows the glaze to become glossy and caramelized, enhancing the flavor and appearance of the wings.
To add a finishing touch, garnish the wings with chopped green onions, which provide a fresh and vibrant element. Serve the Oven BBQ Chicken Wings with your favorite dipping sauce, whether it’s a classic ranch dressing, blue cheese dip, or a tangy barbecue sauce.
