I made this recipe a while ago when I had a girls night ... they were pretty tasty and I've made them a few times since, but the Salt & Vinegar Wings have made an appearance more often than these. Time to fix that slight snub ;-)
I had said the last time, when I posted the recipe, that I would probably skip the "sticky" addition and not baste and cook the wings in the sauce, but you know what, they are called Sticky & Sweet for a reason ... so I still swabbed them and cooked them with the sauce ...
Here's who I did it:
30 wings (I took the plunge and learned how to break down the whole wing here ... easy!)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (um, I actually did a few shakes and *may* have added a touch too much)
For the sauce you will need:
1 cup of hickory flavored bbq sauce (I just use whatever I have, including Hubbys sauce)
1/2 cup honey
2 tbs ketchup
1 tbs Srirarchi (or other hot sauce you have on hand)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Turn oven on to heat to 375. I used my convection roast option.
Rinse and dry wings. Generously spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Lay wings out on a baking tray. Sprinkle the seasoning over them. I should have flipped and seasoned both sides but I didn't.
Bake wings 25 minutes and then flip them all over and bake another 20 minutes. I like mine well done.
While the wings are cooking, make your sauce. Just mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
After wings have cooked for the 45 minutes and they are done, use a brush and brush the sauce generously over all the wings and put back in oven for 10 minutes or so. Flip them again and sauce up the naked backsides. Cook for another 5 minutes.
Remove from oven, stand back, admire, and taste one. Yummm ...
If you are serving at a gathering, you can toss them in a crockpot on warm if desired.
Looking forward to sharing these at a few of these great blog parties ... go check them out!
