Sweet N Sticky Wings

The holidays are upon us and I don't know about you but it's also known as Appetizer Season in my house!  That's why you've been seeing quite a few reposts with appetizers (oh, yeah, and soup, because I'm still waiting for cooler weather here!)

I made these the first time when I was having a girls night and freaked out when I realized thought that I wouldn't have enough food to go around ... how silly of ME ...

So, of course, in my panic, I hopped over to Pinterest to see what I could find for some quick, simple appetizers, using what I already had on hand. Surprisingly enough, I was able to make meatballs AND wings! Woohoo! Totally blew off the chicken apple sausage I was going to make though when I realized just how much food I really did have! Go figure!

The original recipe comes from Hip 2 Save and I really liked these! I made them pretty much according to the recipe, but next time, I think I will bypass the "sticky" addition and not baste and cook the wings with the sauce. They were good, I just prefer my wings to NOT be sticky!

Here's who I did it:

30 wings (I have that 10 lb bag I picked up at Costco a while ago)
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 used bulls eye from pantry, wish I had used 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 ...

These were really really good and all 12 of the girlfriends loved them. I'm just not a fan of sticky sauce that's all. The taste was great!

Once they were cooked, I tossed them all in a crockpot on "warm" to keep them hot ...

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
