  • Author: Speshyl
  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Cook Time: 60 minutes
  • Total Time: 105 minutes
  • Yield: 6 people 1x


Oven baked wings with a crispy exterior, covered in honey-barbecue sauce.




  • 4 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 2 tbsp Baking Powder ((aluminum free))
  • 2 tbsp Kosher Salt ((Diamond Crystal brand))
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • Scallions ((for garnish))


  • 1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce ((your favorite kind))
  • 1/41/3 cup Honey ((add honey until you’re satisfied with the sauce))


  1. Prep your wings by cutting them at the joints to separate. Place all of the wing pieces in a bowl. Reserve the wing tips & freeze for later use in different dishes, such as chicken stock.
  2. Mix baking powder, kosher  salt, smoked paprika and black pepper to combine. Sprinkle mixture onto the chicken and mix well until all of the pieces are evenly coated.Place your chicken on a baking rack and into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. After 30 minutes, remove the chicken from the refrigerator & place it into your preheated oven for one hour. Flip the chicken pieces halfway through cooking (after 30 minutes).
  4. Prepare your sauce by heating a small sauce pan over a medium/low flame, and add your barbecue sauce and honey. Mix to combine and let it heat up to a gentle simmer. Remove from heat.
  5. Place your chicken wings into a large bowl and pour the sauce over them. Toss until they are evenly coated. Chop up 2 scallions (green onions) and use them to garnish. Serve warm. Enjoy!


*I only use Diamond Crystal brand kosher salt. Other salts maybe be saltier, so please keep that in mind.

*Make sure your baking powder is Aluminum Free for the best results.
