Honey BBQ Wings

Boneless + HOney BBQ

Our family loves wings!! We love all the varieties – classic Buffalo, Teriyaki Wings and Honey BBQ too! We are also long time fans of boneless wings and love this Honey BBQ version.

In fact, we usually have all the ingredients required for this recipe on hand, so it’s easy to just throw it together if we want wings for a party.

Not only does the hubby loves these, but so do the kids, so this also is a great dinner recipe too.

How to Make Honey BBQ Wings

These boneless chicken wings don’t actually take long to prepare, but start early because they do have to refrigerate for 3o minutes!

CHICKEN. Cut chicken into small chunks.

BATTER. Whisk together milk and egg in a bowl.

DRY INGREDIENTS. Pour flour, salt, pepper and paprika in a bag. Shake well.

DIP. Dip the chicken chunks into the egg mixture, and then toss into the flour bag. Do this once more to “double cover” the chicken. Put the wings on a baking sheet covered with wax paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

FRY. Five minutes before removing from fridge, heat the vegetable oil in a sauce pan about 1 inch deep, on medium heat. In small batches, place the chicken in the oil. Cook about 6 minutes, turning the chicken half way 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.

Recipe FAQ

Do you have to refrigerate for 30 minutes? No, it’s not a must-do but we suggest it to help them be extra crispy. 😉

Can you make these ahead of time? Yes, do everything but fry the chicken pieces and do that right before serving along with coating them in the bbq sauce.

Can you bake the wings instead of frying? 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.

Can you make these with any sauce? These wings are so easy to change up – just add the sauce of choice, whether it’s regular BBQ sauce, buffalo sauce, teriyaki sauce – this base recipe works for all boneless wings.

We like to serve these with cold ranch dressing and some carrots and celery!

  1. Hehehehe – no worries about healthy. I’m loving all these tasty snacks as my head is focused on football food. YUM!!! I think we would be dangerous of we lived close by.

  2. Gina’s got the right idea- perfect for watching the game. Honey BBQ are always my favorite!

  3. ohh honey bbq wings are my favorite! In fact we were thinking of ordering them from a local restuarant tonight. but now I think we will make them!! This recipes looks super easy! Thanks!!

    1. You will love them!! Let me know how it goes… would love to know what you think once you’ve made them. 🙂

  4. Wow. These look delicious. I’m definitely pinning it to make for our Super Bowl party in a few weeks. Yum. Any idea how well they’d keep in a crock pot? Maybe I need to get an electric skillet….

    1. I actually think they would keep for a few hours in the crock pot. Once you’ve made them and their fried I would put them in the a little before your party with the honey bbq sauce and keep them on low heat. 🙂

      1. Great! I’m glad to hear that you think they’d keep well in the crockpot. I wanted to try it, but was afraid that the boneless chicken wings would turn into shredded chicken mush in the crockpot rather than crispy wings. I guess worse case, though, you could serve it on buns and claim that’s what you intended all along!

  5. Wow. These look delicious. I’m definitely pinning it to make for our Super Bowl party in a few weeks. Yum. Any idea how well they’d keep in a crock pot? Maybe I need to get an electric skillet….

    1. Yes, you could but since I’ve never tried it I’m not sure what the baking temp and bake time would be. If you give it a try let me know, and I can update the recipe.

  6. These are seriously my favorite (and my boyfriends too)!! I made them for the first time about a month ago and I’ve made then 3 times already!! He keeps requesting them and we stopped ordering wings from all those expensive restaurants. I’m making them for football Sunday tomorrow and he’s beyond excited haha Thank you, thank you, thank you!! 🙂 🙂

    1. YAY! I LOVE hearing that recipes are a hit. These wings are our favorite too – and they’re so easy to change up with the different sauces you use. Hope you can find even more recipes you love here on the site. 🙂

    1. I know this is forever late but for those who need to know now. You can use any dairy substitute for milk most of the time. My favorite is almond or oat milk.

    Just made this tonight for dinner, and my husband says it’s even better than Buffalo Wild Wings! Definitely a keeper!!

  8. Thinking about the honey bbq flavor make me drool. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Can’t wait to try it!

    My 17 year old son is a wing connoisseur. Its what he orders from every restaurant. I’ve tried every frozen type of wing you can imagine and after the first bite he tells me please don’t buy those again. I decided to try these because the recipe seemed so very easy. He told me these wings were excellent! He even asked if I would make them sometime for his friends too. I’m so happy I could cry. LOL. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this site!

  10. 5 stars
    Wow! My hUsband and I were blown away at how delicious these were and how incredibly easy they were to make! I can’t wait to make them again!!

  11. 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.
