– 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
– 1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
– 1 tsp. hot or mild paprika
– ½ tsp. garlic powder
– ¼ tsp. cayenne (adjust to your spice preference)
– 2 lbs. (7 or 8) chicken wings
– Salt and black pepper to taste
– 3 tbsp. butter
Let the Marination Begin
Preheat your oven to a toasty 350 degrees. Pat your chicken wings dry and generously season them with a sprinkle of salt and black pepper. In a large bowl, play maestro by combining ketchup, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne. Add the chicken to this flavor fiesta, ensuring each wing is thoroughly coated with the marinade.
Sizzling on the Stovetop
In an oven-proof pan, melt the butter over high heat. Shake off any excess marinade from the wings and let them take a quick dip in the pan. Give them a toss and turn for about 8-10 minutes until you witness the magic – those edges crisping up and browning to perfection.
Now, let’s let the oven do its thing. Place the pan in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes to finalize the cooking process. As the wings reach their crispy nirvana, remove them to a waiting plate, leaving behind the tantalizing aroma of barbecue goodness.
Sauce It Up
But wait, we’re not done yet! Pour the remaining marinade into the pan, set it on low heat, and add ½ cup of water. Scrape up those flavor-packed brown bits as the sauce transforms into a luscious, thick concoction. Return the wings to this saucy paradise, ensuring they’re generously coated.
Serve and Indulge
And there you have it – a symphony of flavors that will have your taste buds singing in delight! Serve these Barbecue Chicken Wings hot, and watch them disappear as your friends and family savor every juicy, flavorful bite.
