Hansen BBQ Wings/Oakley Dessert
By Amy Story Larson
Hansen Honey BBQ Wings
18 chicken wings, raw
1-1/2 tsp. powdered garlic
1 c. Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce™
½ c. honey
1 Tbsp. Frank’s Hot Sauce
2 Tbsp. ketchup
½ tsp. cayenne pepper
½ tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt or Himalayan salt
Crushed black pepper to taste
> Combine ingredients to make the sauce. In a large bowl, coat wings with half the sauce, preserving the other half in a separate container. Cover chicken bowl and marinate at room temp for 20-30 minutes, or in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
> Heat up your oven’s broiler, arrange an oven rack 6-8 inches below the broiling element. Line a baking sheet with foil, then place wings a little space apart from each other on baking sheet.
> Broil for 10-12 minutes, or until tops are browned in places, with crisped skins, then flip and brown again for 10-12 minutes on the other side. It should look crispy, and the meat should pull easily from the bone.
> Toss wings in a bowl with the remaining sauce, and serve immediately. Yummy with bleu cheese or ranch dressing, served with celery or carrot sticks!
