  • 1.5 lb. chicken wings
  • 2 teaspoon chipotle seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • olive oil spray/avocado oil spray

for the sauce:

  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 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)!


*Calories are per chicken wing and are an estimation 
*These wings are best eaten fresh; I wouldn't prep them in advance or store them for later
*Want to keep these paleo-friendly? Simply omit the butter in the sauce (or use ghee), and use a paleo-approved bbq sauce.
