These Brown Sugar BBQ Baked Wings are such an easy, crowd pleasing game day snack! The wings are incredibly crispy, and they’re baked in the oven using a special trick! The BBQ sauce is made in no time on the stove, and it’s the perfect amount of sweet. This wing method will be your new go-to!
Pat wings dry with paper towels. Place wings in a large, non-reactive glass or plastic bowl. Add the salt and toss to coat. Sprinkle the baking powder over the wings and toss again to coat. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. (This step helps the wings get super crispy when they’re baked!)
Preheat oven to 450℉. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Set aside. Place wings in an even layer on the baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes, then flip them, and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until golden and crispy.
While wings are baking, in a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients for the BBQ sauce. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if desired.
When wings are finished baking, add to a large bowl along with ½-¾ cup (or desired amount!) of BBQ sauce and toss to coat! The amount is totally up to you and how saucy you want them! (You will have extra sauce leftover for another use!) Serve immediately with extra BBQ sauce and enjoy!
