Simple and delicious, these easy BBQ wings are perfect for dinner, or a fun appetizer! With only 3 ingredients (and I bet you can guess at least two of them) they’re a winner every time!
Not my first choice.
Can I make a confession? I have never really liked chicken wings. Not that I’m opposed to eating them if they’re available, but I don’t want to take the time to make them.
They’re always so tiny, and compared to other pieces of meat – like a steak – they’re too much work for too little reward. So when I received a couple pounds of them in my meat share last week (yay for local, pastured meat!), I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them.
Thankfully, my husband was all over that…
“Ooh! You should make some BBQ wings!” he excitedly exclaimed.
Surrrrrre. ‘Cause I know how to do that, right?
Not really. But I’ve BBQ’d other parts of a chicken before, so it can’t be that much harder.
Easy BBQ Wings.
Let me tell you, friends. Not only were these chicken wings not harder, they were also tastier than any I’d had at a restaurant! I suppose that slathering butter on something is a sure fire way to make it tastier, though…
So if you are hesitant to make wings, like I was, fear not. I am sure you will enjoy these easy BBQ wings – you can take it from a former wing un-lover.
Now, a note on the BBQ sauce. I’m not a person who enjoys store-bough very much. It always has boatloads of sugar in it. And usually corn, which I don’t handle very well. So I prefer to make my own!
My momma taught me well how to DIY when it comes to store-bought condiments, so homemade BBQ is my go-to for this recipe. If you’re not into making your own then you can use a good, clean version like Noble Made paleo BBQ sauce.
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Easy BBQ Wings
Free of grain, gluten, eggs, and refined sugar.
- 10-12 organic chicken wings
- paleo/keto BBQ sauce (try this Noble Made paleo BBQ sauce or my super easy Raw Blender BBQ Sauce)
- 3-4 tablespoons butter, melted (use coconut oil, for dairy-free)
Preheat the oven to 200. Line a cookie sheet with foil (you don’t have to if you’re not into foil, it just makes clean-up easier) and place an oven-safe cooling rack (like this one) on the cookie sheet.
Slather your wings with BBQ sauce and place them on the cooling rack.
Bake for 2 hours.
Remove cookie sheet from oven, flip the wings, and slather more sauce on them. Place them back in the oven for 2 more hours.
Remove the wings again.
Turn the oven up to 400.
Brush them with butter and bake at 400 for 1/2 hour longer.
