Transcript:Barbecue Chicken WingsHi, I'm Chris Chmura for About.com food. Chicken wings don't have to be spicy. This money-saving recipe for barbecue wings is sweet, scrumptious, and a little bit sticky.
Ingredients for Barbecue Chicken WingsFor this recipe, you'll need:
- as many chicken wings as you'd like
- some olive oil to lightly coat them
- salt and pepper for flavor
- a small bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
Cut and Wash the ChickenBegin by cutting each wing at the joint to separate it into two pieces. Now wash them under cold water, and pat them with a paper towel until they're dry.
Cook the Chicken WingsSeason the chicken with salt and pepper, then brush on a thin coat of olive oil.
I'm going to grill them until the skin is crispy and the meat is fully cooked--usually 10 to 15 minutes, occasionally turning them.
If you don't have a grill, don't worry. You can cook the wings in oil or in the oven by following the directions on the packaging. Try to be sure the skin crisps a little.
Brush on the Barbecue SauceWhen the meat is fully cooked and the juices run clear, brush on a conservative amount of barbecue sauce until the wings are coated lightly and evenly. I'm using a silicone brush because it's easy to clean, and virtually stainless.
Heat the Barbecue Chicken WingsLeave the glazed wings over the flames for just a minute or two to get the sauce sizzling. But don't let them go too long or they'll blacken, and we're not talking Cajun here!
Turn off the gas, and place them on a plate.
Serve the Barbecue Chicken WingsI mince a little onion and add it on top as a garnish, but also for some flavor. Now they're ready to serve as a side dish or as the main event. Either way, you can't go wrong with barbecue wings. Just be sure to have plenty of napkins handy.
