How to Make boneless wings

Boneless Chicken Wings don’t take long to prepare, but start early because they do need to refrigerate for 30 minutes!

PREP BREADING STATION. Cut chicken into small chunks. Whisk together milk and egg in a bowl. Pour flour, salt, pepper, and paprika into a bag. Shake well.

CHICKEN. Dip the chicken chunks into the milk/egg mixture and then toss them into the flour bag. Dip back into the bowl (milk/egg mixture) and again in the flour bag making sure the wings get double covered.

CHILL. Put the wings on a baking sheet covered with wax paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

OIL. Five minutes before removing it from the fridge, heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan about 1-inch deep, on medium heat.

FRY. In small batches, place the chicken in the oil. Cook for about 6 minutes, turning the chicken halfway through. Cook until the breading is golden brown. Set wings on paper towels to cool.

SAUCE. Heat honey BBQ sauce on medium heat and toss chicken around until well coated. Enjoy with cold Ranch Dressing!

alternative cooking methods

Air fryer directions. Prepare the wings as directed in the recipe.

  1. Spray the basket and the wing pieces with olive oil spray.
  2. Fry them in a single layer at 370°F for 5 minutes.
  3. Flip over and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165°F.

Bake chicken wings. Place the coated chicken pieces on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.

BBQ Wings tips

Cut of chicken. A boneless wing is exactly what it sounds like. All the classic flavors of bone-in wings, but without the bone. Traditional hot wings are made when you cut a chicken wing at the joint yielding a flat wingette and a drumette.

Boneless wings are simply boneless skinless chicken breast cut into cubes, breaded, and then smothered in a delicious sauce. They are pretty much an elevated chicken nugget.

Oil. There are several oils with a high smoking point. I typically choose vegetable oil. Peanut oil, canola oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, and corn oil are other options.

Chilling the wings. Chilling is not a must, but we do suggest it to help them be extra crispy.

Sauce alternatives. These wings are so easy to change up – just add the sauce of your choice: BBQ sauce, hot sauce, buffalo sauce, or teriyaki sauce. This base recipe works for all saucy boneless wings.

Serving suggestions. We like to serve these with cold Ranch Dressing or blue cheese dressing and some carrot sticks and celery sticks!

Don’t these Honey Barbecue Wings look delicious?! I seriously love wings (or anything fried for that matter)!

Storing info

STORE leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Reheating. Warm them in the microwave or in the oven. They also can be eaten cold.

Make ahead of time. Prepare the chicken the day before. Once you have coated the chicken pieces store them covered, in the fridge, until you’re ready to fry them.

You can also arrange the pieces in a single layer and place them in the freezer. Once solid, transfer them to a freezer Ziploc. They can last for 2-3 months in the freezer. Allow them to thaw for about 30 minutes before frying.

  1. Just noting that “no longer pink” is a bit vague. Please cook your chicken to 165F. That said, the 25-30 min @ 400F should be fine.

    1. So the recipe does call to fry the wings, but if you’d prefer to bake in the oven, that’s totally an option too. Just place the coated chicken pieces on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.

  2. The recipe says honey BBQ wings but the ingredients calls for chicken breasts. Do I use breasts or wings and how many wings
