Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

Carlos Company gave me a deep fryer a few years ago but I never thought of using it until now. I finally put it to good used and fried these chicken wings with it. I know this is not the healthiest dish to serve but hey life it short. We need to indulge ourselves once a while. Put aside the health implications of fried food, there is nothing much that beats crispy deep fried wings.


20 chicken wings- clean, cut and tips removed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 cup flour


1 cup of barbecue sauce of your choice
2 tbsp Sriracha chili sauce or any kind of chili sauce (optional)
3 tbsp honey (more if you like it sweater)

1. Marinate the wings with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika for an hour.
2. Heat up the oil to about 350 degree F in a deep fryer, or you can use a deep heavy skillet with enough oil to fry the wings.
3. Lightly coat it with the flour. Fry the wings in batches until they’re golden brown and crispy.
4. In a small saucepan, heat up the BBQ sauce, chili sauce and honey. Once the wings is done toss it with some BBQ sauce. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Note: I over-fried the wings a bit that is why the color was a bit dark to my liking.

Zue Murphy said...

Give me a bucket of this and sitting in front of the TV watching funny movie. Fuh! Your chicken looks so great!

Reanaclaire said...

wow..the chicken looks so moist.. must be the honey and they dont look have dark patches of burnt marks too.. wonder why mine always ended up not having even color all round? :P

Ju (The Little Teochew) said...

Pass me some! I didn't think the colour was too dark ... I thought it looks perfect!

ann low said...

WOW! Can't wait to try this yummy chicken wings.

Quinn said...

You think they are too dark to your liking? Because I seriously think the colour is just right. Yummy, I should make some but I don't have a deep fryer here with me. Isn't it annoying because home has everything and no one ever use it and there's nothing much here in Adelaide with me :(

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

My kids will love this, will cook this for them soon.

Julie said...

Oh my, those look delicious!

tigerfish said...

Uh oh, is it chicken wings week? Well, I do agree about the crispiness and the deep-frying. When I bake/roast in the oven, it is definitely not as crispy, but of course still finger-licking good!

Noob Cook said...

I love darkened wings hehe. I like the idea of baking, easier cooking & clean up :p

Memória said...

I agree. These wings look perfect. I would love some right now. I wish I had a deep fryer...or maybe not haha.

The Sudden Cook said...

You're right - life is short! I'm all for indulging!

Honey Bee Sweets said...

OMG, these look finger-licking good! Good with some steamy rice...yum!

Cheah said...

Yes, life is short, totally 'sokong'. No sin to indulge once in a while. Those wings look so delectable!

ReeseKitchen said...

Love2cook Malaysia said...

GOSH!!! U never failed to make me hungry dear! I'm a chickenlover, right now craving for ur wings! ;)

ICook4Fun said...

Angie, thank you. Baking is definitely much healthier

Lesley, there is no checkers here so I not sure how theirs look like :)

Mary, thank you.

Zue, I also hantu chicken wings. Carlos is not but he just love this. I think is the sauce :)

Reanaclaire, frying it in the deep fyer did the trick. It gives a nice even coloring.

Ju, thank you.

Anncoo, hope you like this.

Quinn, I think they are too dark :) I am actually not very keen of using the deep fryer as they used too much oil.

Sonia, hope they like this and you can alway omit the chili sauce.

Julie, thank you.

ICook4Fun said...

Tigerfish, yea this is not as healthy as the bake ones :)

Noobcook, yes it is.

Memoria, thank you.

The sudden Cook, ha ha..

BeeBee, we ate this as it is. No rice for us :)

Cheah, thank you :)

Reese, sorry... maybe we can trade your steam cakes with the wings :)

Love2cook, make some for yourself.

my husband's been dying to make chicken wings, but i keep complaining how expensive a big bag of wings is! (but really, it's because i'm afraid they will taste too good and i can't stop eating them! kinda like yours!)

Hi there, I just made your wings tonight and they are great! I love the sweetness of the bbq sauce and honey and that heat from the Siracha -- definitely a keeper. Thank you.

ICook4Fun said...

Krissy, yea chicken wings is kind of expensive nowadays.

Anon, glad that you like this dish.

Hi there,

I marinated my wings with honey, fresh garlic, honey bbq sauce, lots of honey, brown sugar, salt pepper, and pinch of lemon, and some corn starh. I have just placed the wings in a pot to cook is this a good way to pre- cook before I fry the wings? I want the wongs to come out crispy any suggestions?


ICook4Fun said...

Anon, why do you need to pre-cook it. Wings are small and it will get cook in no time when you fry it up after marinating it. But you have to be cautious though. With so much of honey and brown sugar it might get burn easily when you fry them.
