BBQ Chipotle Wings
Say hello to your new favorite chicken wings recipe! These BBQ Chipotle Wings are coated in a simple chipotle dry rub, baked in the oven and then brushed with a delicious barbecue marinade.
Servings: 18 wings
- 1.5 lb. chicken wings
- 2 teaspoon chipotle seasoning
- 2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- olive oil spray/avocado oil spray
for the sauce:
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
- 2 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/8 teaspoon chipotle seasoning or more if you want it to be spicy
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine dry rub ingredients in a bowl. Dip each chicken wing into the bowl, making sure it's completely coated, then place it on a baking sheet. Repeat this process with all of the wings. Spray the wings with olive oil spray/avocado oil spray (this step is optional, but will help them crisp up even more in the oven).
Bake chicken wings for 30 minutes, flipping half way through.
While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. Whisk all of the bbq sauce ingredients together in a bowl then set aside. Do a taste test; if you want the sauce to be spicier, add more chipotle seasoning.
Once wings are baked, brush them with sauce on both sides and place back in the oven for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Remove from oven and enjoy with your favorite condiment(s)!
