Honey BBQ Chicken Wings
adapted from recipezaar.com (additions in italics)
For the wings:
18 chicken wings
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon McCormick Grillmates chicken rub
For the Sauce:
1 cup barbecue sauce, preferably Hickory Smoke Flavor
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Wash, dry, and season the wings with the salt, garlic, pepper, cayenne, sugar, and paprika. Preheat the oven to 375.
Place the wings in a single layer on the cookie sheet, and place in the oven.
Cook for 35-40 minutes, depending on the size of the wings, turning once.
While they are baking, make the sauce by slowly simmering the sauce ingredients over the lowest heat.
When the wings are done baking, carefully dip them in the sauce, and place them back in the oven for another 5 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling.
There were really great. As always, wings are a bit messy, but they were totally worth it. Even though the game was a bust (maybe next year, Eagles?) the wings were a hit. We've been invited to a Superbowl party next weekend, and I think I might bring these.
