Ingredients to prepare delicious chicken wings in BBQ sauce

Chicken wings in bbq sauce.

According to Wikipedia references, BBQ wings are originally from the United States. In that country, they’re known as Buffalo wings, and the traditional recipe consists of two ingredients: a spicy sauce (based on vinegar and cayenne) and margarine or butter.

They’re known all over the world because they taste simply delicious. In this case, we give them a very special touch, as we prepare our own BBQ sauce from ingredients such as spices and tomato sauce.

Note: the final dish is high in calories, so it’s important to moderate how much you eat.


  • 5 cloves of garlic.
  • 1 kg of chicken wings.
  • 1 white onion (60 g).
  • Salt and pepper (to taste).
  • 1/4 cup of water (60 mL).
  • Olive oil (to taste).
  • 60 mL of honey.
  • 2 tablespoons of mustard (20 g).
  • 1 tablespoon of butter (10 g).
  • 1/4 cup of tomato sauce (125 g).
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar (10 g).


  1. Chop the onion and garlic cloves very finely.
  2. In a pan, place the butter and a little olive oil, if you wish so. Pour the chopped onion and garlic and sauté over medium heat.
  3. Once the onion and garlic are browned, add all the other ingredients, except the wings, salt and pepper. Stir constantly.
  4. Enhance the flavor adding salt and pepper until satisfied.
  5. Cook this preparation for 20 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.
  6. Prepare a baking tray and place the chicken wings in it. Add a little salt and pepper on both sides.
  7. Using a brush, add the BBQ sauce on each wing. Make sure you don’t use all the sauce as you’ll occupy it later.
  8. Place on a preheated oven at 180ºC and bake for approximately 20 minutes.
  9. Then, add BBQ sauce on one side and turn the wings to add more sauce, and bake for about 10 more minutes.
  10. Turn them over and add another layer of BBQ sauce.
  11. Place in the oven again for about 5 more minutes and… you’re done!

An alternative method

Sometimes we don’t have an oven available or we just want to skip the baking. The truth is that chicken wings can be prepared without using an oven and the flavor is very similar. We give you the simple steps just in case you don’t have an oven available.

  1. Heat the butter in olive oil over low heat.
  2. Place the chicken wings and add salt and pepper to taste. Leave them a few minutes until they begin to brown.
  3. We recommend preparing the BBQ sauce in another pan. Once all the ingredients are mixed, pour the sauce in the pan with the chicken wings.
  4. Let it simmer until the sauce thickens and sticks to our delicious wings.

And that’s it. In fact it seems easier, right? Well, some will agree that baking gives them a different taste. This alternative is more appropriate if you’re in a hurry and your guests are about to arrive at any moment. In any case, this will also depend on the taste of each person.
