They’re the ideal finger food for your next backyard get-together or a cozy movie night at home.
Gathering Your Ingredients
To kick things off, you’ll need:
- 125 g Flour
- 1 tsp Chili Powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Paprika Powder
- 20 Chicken Wings
- 300 g BBQ Sauce
- 170 g runny Honey
Let’s Get Things Cooking!
First, heat your BBQ to a solid 200°C. You’ll want to achieve a good, even heat. If you don’t have a meat thermometer, now’s the time to get one. It’s a game-changer, trust me!
In a bowl, mix together your flour, chili powder, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. This is where your wings get their first layer of flavor. Once mixed, go ahead and coat your chicken drumettes in this flavorful flour mix, ensuring an even distribution.
Arrange your wings on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet, all in a single layer. Armed with your handy tongs, it’s time to grill. Pop them on the BBQ for about 45 minutes, don’t forget to flip them halfway through, until their skin is crispy and golden brown.
Now, turn up the heat to 230°C to give your wings that final touch of smoky goodness. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, blend the BBQ sauce with the honey. This combo is where the magic happens. Coat your crispy wings in this delicious glaze, and then back on the grill they go. After another 8 to 10 minutes, your wings should be bubbling and caramelized. Let them cool, and they’re ready to serve!
