I made these Easy Oven Baked Chicken Wings with Homemade BBQ sauce to share with friends during our New Year’s Eve celebration.
My friend called today to say she has been craving these wings since having them and that she just HAD to have the recipe. So I am sharing it here with all of you, too.
I hope you try them…maybe this Sunday night while watching “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles” or on Superbowl Sunday while cheering on the Broncos!
Oven Baked Chicken Wings
(adapted from AllRecipes.com)
1 or 2 packages chicken wings (12-24 whole wings)
3 tablespoons melted, cooled butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Directions :: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, set aside.
Split chicken wings at the joint. Rinse and pat dry with a paper towel. In a large bowl add butter and wings. Mix to coat wings in butter. Then transfer wings to a ziplock bag, add flour. Shake until coated. Place coated chicken wings on prepared sheet in oven on middle rack. Bake 25-30 minutes, turning once. You should see juices are running clear.
Prepare BBQ sauce while wings are cooking.
Remove wings from oven. Increase oven temperature to broil. Transfer wings to a large bowl and pour about 1 cup of homemade bbq sauce, mix to coat. You will have sauce left over. Return wings to oven and broil about 2 minutes or until golden brown. If you are like me and like your wings crispy, leave them in a bit longer. You’ll need to watch them though, as they will burn fast (it has happened to me)!
You can warm the remaining sauce and serve with wings to dip them in or save it for your next wing craving. It should keep in the refrigerator for a week or so in a covered container.
Homemade BBQ Sauce

Makes :: 2 cups
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced

1/3 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (you can substitute distilled vinegar)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Directions :: Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 5 minutes, stirring, careful not to burn them. Reduce the heat to low.

Once cooled, give the bbq sauce a quick spin in a food processor/blender or use a hand blender to give it a smooth consistency.
