Honey Barbecue Chicken Wings

Hey hey everyone!!! Today’s conversation is wings!!! Can we talk about just how damn delish they are!!! You can’t eat just one!! Most of the time we get our chicken wings from take out, at the bar or just a starter at a restaurant. The thing is, wings are SO EASY to make!!! You can make just a plain wing and have a variety of dipping sauces, OR you can use a couple flavors and finish them off like we did here. This wing sauce is sweet and a little tangy. Don’t be afraid to add hot sauce to this. I tend to go more mild because we have non spicy eaters in this house. Anyways.... I prefer to fry my wings in vegetable oil, now if you ask others they may say to use canola oil.... Stick with what suits you best!! I generally use a large Dutch oven pot for this because it’s nice and deep. Plus it’s heavy and will hold the heat evenly. That being said, use whatever deep pot you have that’s good enough to hold 3/4 of a gallon of oil and you want it to only be about 1/2 way up the pot.... You can’t fill this you will have a big hot mess!! This splatters! You can use a splatter screen/lid, this helps!! And YES you can air fry, but I prefer the good old-fashioned way LOL. I grab party packs from Giant. You will get about 1.5 lbs. for a few bucks, and they are already separated.

Servings: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 9-12 minutes

Total Time: 24-27 minutes


  • 3/4 gallon vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup diced fresh garlic

  • 1 cup sweet baby rays hickory brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

  • 1/2 tablespoon onion salt

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon cracked pepper

  • 2 pounds chicken wing party pack


1. OK here we go!! First grab you Dutch oven pot or whatever you're using and add your oil. Get the oil heated until 375-400 degrees. Be sure not to let it go over 400F; turn the heat down when needed. This is where kitchen thermometers come in handy.

2. While you wait for that to heat up, get started on your sauce. Add all the ingredients above, minus the wings. Stir real good and let it sit; the longer it sits the better in my opinion.

3. Now let’s open up your wings and salt and pepper both sides. Use your best judgement about 1/2 a teaspoon or so of each.

4. OK, your oil in ready, and you're going to drop in your wings.... Add as many as you can with out them overlapping. You will want to cook them about 9-12 minutes. If you like them more crispy, leave them in the longer time, less... use the lesser time. You want to look for them to be slightly brown and floating on the top. Once they are done, you’ll want to put them on a paper plate and paper towel to remove some of the excess grease.... Now you will coat them in your sauce (adding carrots, celery, ranch & blue cheese is great too). NOW TIME TO DIG IN!!!
