“Deliciously tender and packed with smoky flavors, our BBQ Baked Chicken Wings are a mouthwatering delight. Made with succulent chicken wings coated in a sticky, tangy barbecue glaze and baked to perfection, this finger-licking dish is the ultimate crowd-pleaser for any occasion.”
BBQ Baked Chicken Wings
One of the easiest and best ways to make BBQ chicken wings is in the oven. These foolproof chicken wings are tender and delicious. They are so easy to make that they’re a no-brainer for an appetizer or casual dinner. Slather a little of my favorite homemade bourbon BBQ sauce on them and you’ll see why they’re so addictive.
The first step to making these baked BBQ chicken wings is to put together a basic rub for the wings. Coating the wings in this homemade dry rub gives them a ton of extra flavor and will help to absorb the moisture on the wings, leading to a crispier exterior. For the rub, combine chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix it all together and then rub it all over the wings.
Lay the seasoned wings out evenly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or tin foil. Bake them for 15 minutes at 400°F (204°C) before flipping them over and baking for another 15 minutes on the other side.
After baking, baste the wings with your favorite BBQ sauce. Brush it onto the top side of the wings. Turn your oven to broil and place the tray on the second rack from the top to minimize splatter and flare-ups. Broil each side of the wings for about 3 minutes until they develop a light char.
Once both sides have been broiled, remove them from the oven and serve hot. These baked BBQ wings are great for parties, picnics, or even backyard barbecues. They turn out perfect every time, with crispy exteriors and irresistible finger-licking goodness!

How to Make BBQ Baked Chicken Wings
Making BBQ baked chicken wings is a simple and delicious process. To start, create a basic rub for the wings by combining chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix the rub together and then coat the wings evenly with it. Place the wings on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or greased tin foil.
Bake the wings in a preheated oven at 400°F (204°C) for 15 minutes. Flip them over and bake for an additional 15 minutes on the other side. Remove the tray from the oven and brush BBQ sauce onto the top side of the wings. Turn your oven to broil and place the tray on the second rack.
Broil the wings for about 3 minutes per side, keeping a close eye on them to prevent burning. Once both sides have a light char, remove them from the oven and serve immediately. These baked BBQ wings are perfect for parties or casual dinners.
How to Reheat Chicken Wings
When it comes to reheating chicken wings, there are several methods you can try. One of the most effective ways is using an air fryer. Preheat your air fryer to around 365°F (185°C) for about 5 minutes. Place the wings in the air fryer basket and cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Make sure the internal temperature of the wings reaches 165°F (73.8°C) before consuming.
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also reheat chicken wings in a toaster oven, full oven, or convection oven. The key is to heat them evenly and thoroughly to retain their juicy and tender texture. Preheat your chosen appliance to around 350°F (175°C) and place the wings on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased tin foil. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
No matter which method you choose, make sure to keep a close eye on the wings as they reheat to prevent them from drying out or burning. Once they’re heated to your liking, remove them from the oven or air fryer and serve immediately.
