Super Bowl 2021 BBQ Chicken Wings

I have had chicken wings served in many different forms. Being a New Yorker that spent a few college years in the Buffalo New York area… the chicken wings that they call Buffalo Wings are my favorite. I have a gal we call wife. She does not enjoy the Buffalo-style chicken wing. So Let’s make a honey bbq chicken wing that I will first sizzle cook in hot oil and then coat and bake with her favorite bbq sauce. 

Not a single wing survived the first 20 min of the feast. The girls put them away early.


2.5 pounds  chicken wings

1 cup cooking oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Prepare a sheet pan with baking parchment.

In a large skillet place 1 cup cooking oil

Heat to a medium heat

Place the chicken wings in the hot oil

Sear wings on all side by using tongs to flip them in the pan

Remove wings from hot oil and transfer to the parchment lined cooking sheet

Sprinkle chicken wings with salt and pepper 

Bake until wings are crispy and browned

Remove wings from oven and transfer to a large bowl

Add BBQ sauce to bowl and toss the wings to coat

Return the wing to parchment paper covered baking pan

Bake for 5 more minutes

Serve the wings with ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing and little slices of celery and carrots.
