With football season coming up I know many of you are looking for appetizers and party food. This is a great recipe for the men in your life. I know our guys love it and to be honest, we do too! 🙂 You just can’t go wrong with baked chicken wings!
My son, Mason, is a huge Ohio State University fan. He can’t wait for football season to start! Along with the football games he loves some great football food. This is one of his favorite recipes and one of Sydney and mine also. Along with tasting really good, these baked chicken wings are really easy! Sometimes you just need an easy recipe and this one definitely fills that bill. Much of the time we love being in the kitchen, game day not so much! We want to be with everyone else!
Hot wings and barbecue wings are a staple around here, especially during football season. We truly eat them all year long, but find ourselves having them more often during football season. This is why I am so glad that they are so easy. Another thing I do to make these baked chicken wings easier is to use disposable, aluminum pans. No sticky, gooey mess to try and clean up. Clean up is a snap, just toss the pan into the trash! It is that simple. 🙂
These wings are baked not fried. So for those that are more health conscious, these baked wings are a great alternative to fried and breaded wings! You can eat more of them this way!
It is almost embarrassing to tell you guys the ingredients that we use in these wings. There are only three!
These are the three ingredients that make up our favorite baked chicken wings. We literally pour Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings sauce over the wings for the hot ones. For the barbecue ones we like Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce with several drops of liquid smoke. The combination of the barbecue sauce and liquid smoke is amazing! That’s it! Even the grocery shopping is easy! 🙂
It is that quick and easy! Football food made fast! As much as we love cooking and baking, sometimes it is nice to have quick and easy recipes on hand. We always have wings in the freezer and the sauces in the kitchen cabinet.
There are many variations to this you can make. Sydney likes hers with olive oil, cracked pepper and salt. You could make them with teriyaki sauce or bourbon sauce. Whatever flavors you family loves will work great on these. The nice thing is there is no set amount of ingredients. The sauces are to taste. Like more, add more. Like less, add less. No measuring involved.
If you are having a potluck, these keep nicely in a crock pot on low/warm heat. They don’t dry out as long as you keep them on the lower setting. Just bake and put in the crock pot to keep them warm. Life saver!!!
This is a family favorite we have made for years and looks like we will continue to make for years to come!
