Baked BBQ Chicken Wings

Cleaning the wings will make you enjoy these BBQ Chicken Wings even more. The first thing you have to do is to grab a knife, using the sharp side, gently scrub the chicken wings.

Rub the wings with salt for one minute, rinse, and you will see that the wings are now brighter in color. The most important step is done, and the following steps are much easier.

Before preparing the wings, make sure to preheat the oven. You can also grill these wings instead of baking. Grilling the chicken wings will add a Smokey flavor to the Chicken Wings.

Can you make BBQ chicken wings using your favorite BBQ sauce? Yes, you can. At days when I’m lazy but want my chicken wings, I use different types of BBQ sauce instead of making a homemade sauce, and the chicken wings always come out great.

How to serve these chicken wings

These chicken wings are amazing with garlic dip and even hummus. For a healthier choice, you can serve it with a green salad on the side.

I had chicken wings with Mushroom and Rice and with Buttery Lime Rice. One thing to remember to make this recipe a hit, choose meaty chicken wings.

If you enjoy fried chicken wings, then I have a recipe for Crispy and little spice chicken wings on my blog. The chicken wings are truly crispy from the outside but perfectly tender from the inside.
