What else is better than sweet and spicy sticky chicken wings? Imagine them baked in the oven with the best chicken wing sauce recipe you can get! Simple ingredients, 5 min to prepare, 40 min in the oven!
Guys, if you had a burger and chicken wings in front of you what would you choose? I would go for the wings! Always! I got the taste of them in Ireland where they would sell them coated in BBQ sauce and baked to perfection! I loved them! But… at one point they stopped selling them. Actually, they did not. They simply opted for cheaper ones. But the taste was never the same! I had tried making them at home but couldn’t get the right taste. No BBQ seasoning, no BBQ sauce made them taste like I remembered!
Back then I was disappointed that I could not recreate the taste. They had the sauce, the seasoning but not the taste that make them yummylicious!
A few weeks ago I made them again. I did not use anything fancy. Nor did I follow any recipes. I just felt like having some sweet and spicy and sticky chicken wings so I tried again. Well, I can say that I have finally succeeded. And guess what? The secret was not in the BBQ sauce like I had thought before.
So this oven baked chicken wings recipe does not contain BBQ sauce! Yet it tastes like the spicy chicken wings I would buy from deli counter in Ireland. Maybe they were not even BBQ chicken wings they just made that name up. But I wouldn’t know this. For me, they were! And they were the best ones!
Anyways, these oven baked chicken wings are a must try for any wing lover out there! Guys, if you try them, let me know what you think! I looove them and hope you will too!
This simple sticky sauce for chicken wings tastes incredible!

Sweet and Spicy Sticky Chicken Wings
- Place the wings on a baking tray lined with baking paper or tin foil. Make sure there is an adequate space in between them.
- Season each wing with salt, pepper and quite a generous amount of sweet paprika. Do this on both sides.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/356F for 20 minutes.
- In a small sauce pan, combine ketchup + honey + Worcestershire sauce + Tabasco sauce. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water and add to the sauce pan. Stir well. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 3 minutes or until the sauce has thickened (run a wooden spoon/spatula through the sauce. If it doesn’t fill the empty space you are good to go). Remove from the heat.
- Once 15 minutes have passed, turn each wing over and coat with sticky sauce. Return in the oven.
- Leave them in the oven for a further 15 minutes before turning each wing up-side down and coating them with the rest of the sauce. Bake for a further 10 minutes.
- Enjoy while still warm!
