  • 3lbs chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Dry Rub:

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Honey BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cups favorite BBQ sauce (I used Stubbs)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add chicken to a large bowl. Pat chicken dry.
  3. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of canola oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, sea salt and pepper. Toss to coat all the chicken.
  4. Place chicken on a wire rack lined baking sheet. (if you don’t have a wire rack, use parchment paper)
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, flipping the chicken after 20 minutes.
  6. Turn the Broiler on to HIGH.
  7. Place chicken under broiler for 8-10 minutes, until browned.
  8. In the meantime, heat a medium sauce pan to medium heat. Add BBQ sauce, honey, stone ground mustard and sriracha sauce. Stir and bring to a simmer, let simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  9. Remove chicken from oven. Place in a large bowl, pour the Honey BBQ sauce over the chicken wings. Using a pair of tongs, toss the wings to coat all of them with the sauce.
  10. Serve.
  11. Optional: add chopped chives for garnish.
