These wings will knock your socks off! It’s hard to believe they are not fried because they taste so good. Since they are broiled, they get nice and crispy. They look like they just came off the grill!
12 or more Chicken Wings
1 Tbs Garlic Powder
1 Tbs Onion Powder
1/2 Tbs Salt
1/2 Tbs Pepper
1/8 Cup Siracha
1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce
1/8 Cup Agave
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
Take the chicken and cut apart into drums and wings (discard the tip). This requires a sharp knife and a strong arm, but you can have your butcher do this step for you if you like. Transfer the chicken pieces onto a baking sheet lined with foil.
Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Then sprinkle both sides with seasoning. Do not oil the chicken at all, since we are putting these under the broiler the oil would smoke up your whole house (not a good time to test your smoke detector 😉 ). Place the chicken in the oven and turn your oven on broil. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven (it will be very hot). Using tongs, flip the wings over and cook for another 10 minutes.
**If your oven runs too hot, try cooking the chicken at 450° for 10-15 minutes each side, then finish under the broiler for the last few minutes.**
Meanwhile, place all of the ingredients for the sauce in medium sized bowl. You can use your favorite buffalo sauce or barbecue sauce instead, but I love the mixture of FLAVORS in this sauce (a little sweet and spicy, like me 😉 ). Take the wings out of the oven and while they are still hot, toss a few at a time into the sauce. Once they are coated well, transfer to a serving dish. Continue saucing the rest of the wings with this finger lickin’ good sauce (hmm…has that slogan already been used?)
Take a look at the masterpiece you just created, those charred edges and delicious sauce…I’m getting hungry just looking at them. Now get in there and get messy!
