Honey-Barbecue Chicken Wings Recipe

The slightly sweet barbecue flavor in this sauce provides mass appeal...and the need to keep eating more wings! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min./batch YIELD:24 servings


  • 2-1/2 pounds whole chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Oil for deep-fat frying


  • 1. Cut wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, barbecue sauce and honey. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to about 1 cup.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Add wings a few at a time, and shake to coat.
  • 3. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wings, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Transfer wings to a large bowl; add sauce and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

"Made this for the football game today & they were a hit! We will definitely be making this again. I didn't quite let the sauce boil. I didn't have the sodium free soy sauce so I took out the salt in the flour. I love salty foods and initially I thought it would be too salty but it ended up being terrific. I can't wait to make them again!"

"Wings were very tasty. Family liked them. I agree that the sauce became very dark. I wonder if using the microwave would help?"

"I gave this recipe 5 stars because it satisfied my husband AND my father. They didn't look like the picture at all, probably due to the bbq sauce I used. They are VERY sticky. I will make these again."

"These wings had potential. Unfortunately, boiling and reducing the sauce caused the sugars in the honey to camelize and taste a bit on the burnt side."
